    My Favorite Libertarian Joke That I've Seen

    No, I won't explain it.

    My Favorite Libertarian Joke That I've Seen

    I was walking home one evening and came upon a clearly depressed man standing at the edge of a bridge, looking like he was about to jump. I called out to him to wait, and ran over to see what was the matter.

    "It's this country," he lamented. "It's falling into ruin and there's nothing I can do about it. The election was the last straw. I don't want to live on this planet anymore."

    "Well cheer up," I said. "We're all in this together. Say, are you a conservative, or a libertarian?"

    "A libertarian," he said.

    "That's great!" I said. "See, you're not alone. Are you a free-market libertarian or a libertarian socialist?"

    "Free-market libertarian," he said.

    "Me too!" I said. "Paleo-libertarian or neo-libertarian?"

    "Paleo-libertarian," he said.

    "Hey, so am I!" I said. "Chicago or Austrian school of economics?"

    "Austrian," he said.

    "Me too," I said. "Hayek or Rothbardian strand?"

    "Rothbardian," he said.

    "Same here," I said. "Are you a consequentialist or deontological libertarian?"

    "Consequentialist," he said.

    So I said, "Die, statist scum!" and pushed him off the bridge.

    Political tags - such as royalist, communist, democrat, populist, fascist, liberal, conservative, and so forth - are never basic criteria. The human race divides politically into those who want people to be controlled and those who have no such desire.

    It's a problem with modern individualism.

    That's post-modern.

    My point was pre-modern. :P
