Open Borders And Libertarianism

One of my favorite pastimes is shitting on modern libertarians. They are a decidedly silly and unserious bunch, made all the more amusing by how self-important and self-righteous most of them are. Nowhere is this more true than when it comes to immigration policy. Most contemporary libertarians will swear that you have to have open borders in order to be truly "libertarian", and even pointing out that each successive wave of non-European immigrants supports the precise opposite of what libertarians support, with the exception of drug legalization, means nothing to them as most live in a fantasy world of make-believe where just believing a concept means it will work in the real world, human nature and experience be damned.

I don't have much to add to this topic, you can sample a few pieces like this Open Border Libertarianism Is Self-Defeating, but I did want to share something written by a guy I have "known" on Facebook for a while, Darrell Dow. He writes for American Remnant and the piece in question is this one: 


It is a well written and thought-out essay. Give it a read and maybe a comment or share. TIA.

  1. Small "l" libertarianism can co-exist and complement conservatism. However Upper case "L" Libertarianism is just a fancy term for being a pot head globalist. While it may sound great in theory it seems incapable of surviving a meeting with reality.

    1. There are plenty of small "l" libertarians but most are disgusted with the national party.

  2. Genuine 'libertarianism,' like genuine property rights, is downstream from culture and thus genetics. In this as in all things, race/ethnicity matters. Solid article at the American Remnant, albeit nothing new for the DR.
