What two strategies identify the first steps toward creating a libertarian society? Retweet
Most of our Mental Lever “collections” focus on presenting key libertarian ideas in bite-size chunks. But one of those collections deals with strategies and tactics. Each mini-article in that collection tries to present an idea that will contribute something vital to our overall goal…
Creating a libertarian society!
Our strategies and tactics Levers so-far deal with the following questions…
- Are you being manipulated by a statist machine? (Agenda Setting Theory)
- Why do friends snap back to statist ideas when I’m not there? (The Rubber Band Effect)
- Can you induce people to reject statism? (The Mental Depth Charge)
- When should statists oppose greater government powers? (The “shoe on the other foot” rule)
- Why you should tackle the five hardest issues first? (The Pillar Strategy)
- Can a voluntaryist be a gradualist? (Fabian Libertarian)
And today we present two new Mental Levers that go right to the heart of libertarian strategy…
- What thing do we most need to create a libertarian society?
- What strategic activity should libertarians prioritize?
Taken together these Mental Levers provide steps one, two, and three toward creating a libertarian society…
- Focus on the main need
- Take yes for an answer
- Use yes to counter no
Check out both Levers and leave your thoughts in the comments section below each.

What I am finding difficult is the number of statist proposals, from House and Senate bills to Presidential actions that are being rolled out. Currently, President Trump, who has a mixed record on liberty, is proposing to nominate Marvin Goodfriend to the Federal Reserve Board. This Keynesian ‘economist’ has proposed both ‘negative interest rates’ for bank deposits and chipping and taxing FRNs that are held outside of banks. As a Floridian, I hate this idea for both the statist potential of the action, and the penalty it places on the people who either don’t trust banks, or heed the suggestions of the state governments in hurricane prone zones to keep a couple of weeks or so of cash available in case of non-working ATMs. I will be calling my representatives and notifying friends and family members on this one, pronto.
