It’s one thing to be uninformed, but it’s entirely another to repeatedly avert one’s eyes from the evidence. Whether it’s school choice, private health care, gun rights, drug decriminalization, or any one of dozens of other topics, every libertarian has endured moments like this… moments when confronted with the determinedly close-minded. A great deal of what I read ends with me promising myself to buy more ammo, but these interactions with the invincibly ignorant usually prompt me to prioritize growing and strengthening my relationships with other libertarians. There are certain people, and lots of them, who will never accept that their appetite for dominion over others is immoral and unacceptable. The stronger the ties are amongst the libertarian nation, the less the opposition matters.
