Well if you cannot laugh at yourself then you are doomed....
But, as I pointed out it's funny because this is definitely how ignoramuses view libertarianism. So, whoever created this cartoon thinks they are making fun of libertarianism but really I am just making fun of the idiots that don't really know what libertarianism is.
We let the jackasses discredit themselves by speaking about that which they do not know.
It is funny. The way I see it, libertarianism is still in its infancy, and has yet t be truly defined by a set of agreed upon principles. Therefore, you don't have many people that are for it so much as you have a lot of people who are against other political philosophies. Then they define Libertarian not necessarily by what it actually is intended to be for, but by what they are against.
That is why as a political movement, I see it as doomed.
This is an extremely important...often overlooked... point you've made.
And it seems to be especially true for any "movement" to survive. A movement will NEVER survive unless it is "for" something. And if what they are all about necessitates having "boogy-men" or some clear persons and/or individuals to direct their wrath (can you say Pelosi/Reid/Obama?)...the countdown has already begun to their disappearance as a viable force.
