Constantly complaining to other libertarians about the evil govt is the libertarian form of virtue signaling. Do something — make a public statement, help people to stay safe, challenge falsehoods, give money where it's useful, protect yourself and friends, prepare for the future — or it's all just noise.

@gmcgath I guess that would be true if that was ALL they did, but I don't see why commiserating with like-minded people is a problem in and of itself. I even think it's beneficial because it helps people to clarify their thinking.

I was at a flea market yesterday in a state that has a sales tax. I started joking with a few people by saying that we're all criminals since we aren't paying the tax here, and damn it if I didn't almost start a tax revolt from the responses I got.

Very encouraging.

@gunkslinger That's the right way to do it. Talk with people who you might get agreement from but may not have really thought about the implications.

Liberdon is a Mastodon instance for libertarians, ancaps, anarchists, voluntaryists, agorists, etc to sound off without fear of reprisal from jack or zuck. It was created in the wake of the Great Twitter Cullings of 2018, when a number of prominent libertarian accounts were suspended or banned.
