Why We Will Never See a Libertarian Society

If you have ever been to a libertarian conference, you know the most annoying question that pops up: what can we do to spread our ideas to the masses and create the libertarian paradise? When this question is asked, I usually laugh out loud. Why? The person asking it is inevitably a complete social outcast. Take for example, Matus Petrik. Now, many of you may not know Matus and frankly that really does not matter . . . because I know him. He hails from Slovakia and will be writing in as our European Sex Editor. Not only does he talk about his sexual encounters (whether imagined or real) incessantly and utter unintelligble phrases in english and slovak, he spends hours at night photocopying books in the library at an unidentified economics research institute. I fear that ANY time he opens his mouth to expresses his ideas that anyone within earshot becomes vehemently opposed to the libertarian ideal. But, this just brings me to a more general observation: almost every student (and/or person) in the movement is a complete reject. Further, if they are not a complete reject, then they qualify as a partial reject. On the other hand, I often wonder if some of these people rather enjoy being a marginalized school of thought. That's why the kids that have to spend lunch in the library because they have no friends are attracted to this movement. Imagine if it went mainstream! How can these kids live without daily dinner conversations consisting of whether or not it is OK for parents to harvest their children's organs for sale on the market in a "libertarian or anarchist society." So put down your Magic cards and turn off Buffy the Vampire Slayer--there will not be a libertarian revolution...
