Naive. Can't argue with this one. A great many libertarians are exactly this way, because they fall into the basic error of believing that all people and culture are exactly the same, and that therefore everybody will act 'sensibly,' i. e., the way the Naive guy would act. In practice, eliminating government in almost every case would result in the immediate formation of one on more new governments, usually worse than the eliminated one.
Petulant. Sure. We all know this guy. He's just a poseur, and has no actual plans or desires to actually improve anything, just to show off.
Too Smart for Science. This one is pretty much bogus, as there are heaps of people all over the political spectrum who doubt, with good reason, the motives of the Global Warming aficionados. I do, and a lot of scientists of all political persuasions do, too.
Arrogant. I run into this one all the time. Most all the evidence they site I'm already familiar with, and am also familiar with evidence on the other side. Another poseur. No intention to actually convince anybody, just a show-off. It's a Randian virus.
Left-Wing. This guy doesn't belong in any movement calling itself 'libertarian.' He should join the Democratic party, where he belongs. Far too many of him on the net.
Denial-ican. Bogus. I'm no Republican, but I've never voted for a Democrat. I'm a lesser-of-two-evils guy, and so are a big plurality of Americans. I'm supposed to prove I'm not a Republican by voting for Obama? False dichotomy.
More Libertarian than Thou. This guy is everywhere, and considers pragmatism some kind of evil thing. He ensures that libertarian ideas are going to be considered ridiculous by everybody else.
Terrified. This type is real, but not absurd as he's pictured here. Anybody who isn't afraid of the Government is living in a fool's paradise.
Too Much Heinlein. This type isn't real, or he's somebody who doesn't really understand Heinlein. The inequality of man is simply a fact, and I can't see anything in Heinlein that says that poor people aren't smart. Straw man.
The Island. Sure. A lot of us feel that way, and the fact that we try to get some of our productivity back by using taxpayer-provided services is hardly hypocritical. Any other attitude is self-defeating.
Creepy. Yeah, there are a few of these. Again, they should be Democrats.
Selectively Frugal. I suppose there are some like this, but as most libertarians seem to be among the lower income classes, you'll find a lot more of this guy with the Republicans and Democrats. Never mind the tax cut. The ones who want bailouts are the worst.
Nepotist. I see a lot more of this guy among neocons, I'm afraid. I don't know any actual libertarians who would say this. Most would say that a lot of success is also from non-merit sources.
The Apostle. Some young idealists are indeed like this, but any libertarian with experience knows that there's no magic to the market, just a comparative lack of obstacles to most worthwhile enterprise, and that there's more to life than the market.
Atlas. A real type, but you also find him in every other political movement. Every other.
Consistent. This is misleading. Libertarians want low or no taxes because they think the money taken is either wasted or used in counterproductive ways. Also, many question the legitimacy of the power to tax, which is at least debatable.
The Historian. True. He's real, but I can show you the same type everywhere, again, who will tell you that Jefferson agrees with Marx, Mao, Jesse Jackson, Mussolini, Barney Frank, whoever. Hardly an exclusive libertarian type.
Gunner Joe. Real, but this is a caricature. All libertarians think that people should have the right of self-defense, and that people who refuse to defend themselves are indeed a little sheeplike.
Bizarrely Hypocritical. Nope. Most libertarians are fanatically pro-abortion. The ones who aren't, oppose it because they believe the unborn have the right to not be murdered. You can argue with that position, but they certainly don't take it because they want to increase Governement power.
Briefly Tempting. Not sure what is meant here, except to say that certain libertarian tropes are attractive. Is the cartoonist saying that the war on drugs isn't ridiculous? That police abuse should continue? That war is good?
Whitey. This is also a caricature. Libertarians also believe that restaurants have the right to refuse service to Whites, Hindus, bald-headed guys, or anybody else. This is just making fun of the principle that you should be able to do anything non-aggressive with your own property, instead of having a bureaucrat or politician tell you what you can and can't and must do. Makes sense to me.
Missionary. Ah, the Randites. They are indeed real, and make the mistake of thinking Rand covered everything. She didn't. She got a lot of things right, some wrong, and ignored some other things. You can't find a complete guide to life in Rand, any more than you can in Newton, Goethe, or Terry Pratchett, tho the latter comes close. Thing is, anybody who tells you he can guide your whole life isn't a political philospher, but a religious prophet. From time to time, Rand got those two things mixed up.
Caveat Emptor. This has validity, but it leaves out the libertarian notion that a lot of Government functions like this can be performed, not by individuals, but by private businesses that make it their purpose to inform the public. Newspapers, for example, and the AMA for another.
Stoned. I have to admit I know a few. They're the infantile libertarians, who think freedom is all about stuffing beans up your nose. Of course, they also inhabit the Democrats and Republicans, as childishness is universal.
