The Libertarian Part of New Hampshire — more precisely, the people who managed to get its key positions — self-destructed on Twitter today. Lots of libertarians from NH and elsewhere are dissociating themselves from it. Brian Shields, whom I regard highly, has quit his position.

@Indigo @gmcgath Yeah, I have to say, I'm curious to hear the story. Anyone covering it?

@gmcgath I agree with them. Child labor laws are counter productive.

Then again. You need to get your priorities strait. Start with privatizing education so that some schools can mix labor education with on the job paid training.
That will be much more productive

@kpeace It has to be evaluated as a statement by a political party. If any libertarian personally said it, we could discuss and debate the nuances. But putting it as a blanket statement representing the party's position, with an implication that classroom learning is unimportant, is stupid.

@gmcgath I agree that official statements should be put as part as an overall strategy to advance an agenda. This statement does not seam to be part of any rational strategy.

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.
