John Craig on why he is “No Longer a Libertarian”:
In an ideal society, I could still be a libertarian.
But the official Libertarian Party in this country now advocates, among other things, open borders, and anyone with the foggiest sense of human biodiversity can see how that harms the country.
More importantly, libertarianism only works well when everyone else is libertarian as well. When various groups advocate vociferously on their own behalf, the remaining group will end up being a punching bag and scapegoat. And that group can’t just sit back and say, well, we’re above that sort of thing.
When a country lacks the will to defend its own borders, and when the elites can’t wait to replace the existing population, remaining above the fray doesn’t seem the right answer.
