The Liberty Movement's Biggest Obstacle

Stefan Molyneux of Freedomain Radio shows us the biggest obstacle to the liberty movement and why people are having difficulties with the libertarian movement in a highly insightful video.

He shows us that libertarians can often be mean and petty, and that they can sometimes turn off others who don't know about libertarianism by their own personal behaviors.

Not only does Molyneux defend the libertarian cause, he shows how libertarians can apply libertarian principles and live them out in their own personal lives (not libertine, Adam Kokesh-type values, by the way).

And I will add in several of my comments: what if we could be pleasant to be around without being politically correct and whining "racist," "sexist," "misogynist," and whatever left-wing term is concocted when even the slightest of political incorrectness is expressed? What if we could fully advocate for the legalization of drugs, prostitution, same-sex and nontraditional "marriages," and other vices without actually condoning them? What if we could adopt wholesome values without going too much into political conservatism, which is in total contradiction to libertarianism (not cultural conservatism, mind you)? What if there were more Christians in the libertarian movement?

I would answer that the liberty movement would benefit greatly and become the radical force that it once was in the late eighteenth century and most of the nineteenth century.

Here is the video. Enjoy.
