Why it happened
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.”
Why it happened
One does not need to reject libertarianism in order to see that there has been a dulling of rhetoric. There are libertarians who would defend government lockdowns and vaccine mandates. There are libertarians who would defend the rioting of 2020. There are even libertarians who call themselves socialist. Many of them operate within the Libertarian Party. The LPMC’s takeover is an attempt to change this. The goal is then to bring a principled libertarian message to Americans, to “wake them up” to the message of liberty. The post-libertarian moment is recognizing how many Americans are already awake, and truly never cared. Turns out, most people will do as their told, and turns out people in power have some really dark ambitions. This is to say that modern methods of propaganda allows for a greater degree of social control than what a libertarian may heretofore1 have believed. The praxians have arisen out of the post-libertarian moment, united by the mission how to combat this new form of tyranny where your body may be free but your mind is enslaved. . .
