Libertarianism was cool for a little while. It brought us Ron and Rand Paul, a way to oppose stupid wars without being leftist and a message that made us all feel good inside. Then we all witnessed as it became unworkable. A doofus stoner became the standard bearer, and embarrased himself and the movement. The “Libertarian” Party turned into a hotbed of social justice warriors and homosexuals. It cheered as the Supreme Court forced Americans to subsidize sodomy and ignored the real issues of illegal immigration, crime, and White genocide.
In the past year or so many of us abandoned libertarianism. Something better took its place. The frog emoji replaced the porcupine. We started frequenting 4chan instead of Reason. And we all shaved our beards, cut our hair and got fashy haircuts. The Alt-Right was born when libertarianism died.
Many libertarians still don’t know their movement is dead. But it’s over. It died when it abandoned its base, the educated White men of America. IPR and others still parade the corpse of libertarianism around with sunglasses as if it lives. But it’s starting to stink and it’s getting really sad. That’s the difference between IPR and IPR-X. We recognize reality while IPR is stuck in the past.
IPR readers and contributors, please bury the body. I ask you to join us here at IPR-X. We are the present and the future.
