Libertarianism for Grownups — 10 things we must realize

1. The Enlightenment is our foundation.

2. Equality is the new communism.

3. Status, not wealth.

4. We are mostly doing justification.

5. and 6. American libertarians have a bias, taking for granted the absence of organized external enemies. Historically, survival has been a collective effort, not an individual one.

7. Never speak about natural rights again, or if you do, realize it’s just shaming.

8. Strict private property is an anomaly created by violence.

9. Free-ride-a-tarianism.

10. The Non-Aggression Principle (NAP) is insufficient at best, and at worst, a tool for scoundrels.
