What it is
From "The Post Libertarian Moment Defined"
The next few Monday’s will be reprints of the sections that make up my new essay The Post-Libertarian Moment Defined which you can download in full by visiting postlibertarianmoment.com. I consider this essay of vital importance to anyone who calls (or as the case may be called) themselves “libertarian.”
What it is
We are not discussing a movement, but a moment. That moment occurs when in the face of lockdowns, a libertarian sees dogmatic professions of faith1 and popular democratic political strategies2 as insufficient methods of stopping government and corporate tyranny.
No one can actually “be” a post-libertarian. Those who are called post-libertarians go by the name Praxian because their concern is not spreading a message, but achieving results. This is to say, without application there is no point in theorizing what a perfect libertarian world would look like, nor is it useful to use that perfect libertarian world as a baseline for determining right and wrong. There is no encompassing praxian solution, and the praxians are not monolithic. The authentic expression of being “post-libertarian” has been weaponized by those who pretend the world hasn’t changed since 2008. Given the power of the post libertarian moment, praxians have inserted themselves at the center of libertarian discourse in less than a year. LPMC members, Agorists, professional economists, and other high-profile libertarians have all taken turns criticizing the moment without understanding what it is.
