No. Unequivocally no. True Libertarians (those who reject the state and its tyranny) should stand together FOR freedom instead of AGAINST each other.
Many Libertarians have become so focused on fighting each other we have lost sight of the true enemy: the State and its myriad atrocities—i.e. its rampant theft of free people and the rape, murder, and plunder of the world as an self-decided global empire.
It’s an understandable reaction that many of us would rather fight our former-friend or neighbor than band together against a far more powerful (and far more evil) target.
Why shoot a BB gun at an oncoming train when you can feel far more accomplished fighting a more reasonable and localized target—even if he’s not your enemy at all?
But we urge you to remember:
The State is a behemoth. It is a multi-headed hydra that is difficult to challenge without banding together. Individually we are weak; together we are strong.
The State and its evil knows no bounds. And one of its many tactics is to turn those who would oppose it against each other.
Don’t let it.
Liberty dies when good men and women fight each other instead of for freedom.
Evil endures only when corruption is allowed to flourish over freedom.
Freedom is fragile. But do not cast stones at it by fighting each other instead of turning your attention on the one and only enemy. Fight the state with every breath. Fight corruption with every ounce of energy. Fight tyranny at all costs.
Should Libertarians Fight One Another?
