Libertarian Anarchists Should Remember They're Anarchists

The recent contretemps has posed many challenges for libertarians.

The split between minarchists and anarchists has widened, both camps have suffered from internal splits over WWIV, and libertarianism has suffered a decline in what little prestige it had managed to achieve in the larger world of ideologies.

I place myself generally in the anarchist pro-war camp (and yes there is such a camp).

My general advice to those libertarians to whom I've spoken has been the same advice I've given to the pro-war forces in general: "Remember when I told you that there would be difficult days ahead? Well this is one of them!"
