“Irrational fear-mongering and demagoguery will lead to a political shift to authoritarianism.”
Dude. We’re already there, so far up the “authoritarian” scale that Stalin and Mao have their doors open and are saying to us “just a few more steps, now.” Us and all of Western Europe (save Switzerland) is in the same boat.
Gary Johnson. A “pablum” libertarian. A libertarian so weak in his libertarianism that Milton Friedman would spit him out of his mouth, and even FRIEDMAN used to take sh**t from real libertarians for being a collectivist.
And most of America would tell you that Gary Johnson is “out of the mainstream”. Well, THAT tells you that the “mainstream” is comfortably authoritarian at this point.
