It’s so common though, and it’s always been there.
When I first encountered libertarians on the internet in the very early '90s I assumed I was a libertarian because a lot of them were very concerned about individual rights, freedom from oppression, and so on.
But it took like literally a week before I came across my first Craster-type, and actually there were loads of them - almost none as extreme as this, or anywhere near as open, but still loads of them salivating over family members or kids (theirs or other people’s). And they were often allied with the Gunfondler libertarians and “I am John Galt” libertarians, and “FEMA Death Camp” libertarians, leaving the “actually care about individual rights and freedoms and personal sanctity” libertarians as a sizable minority (the largest individual group, sure, but still only like 30% tops, and even a bunch of those seemed to have some pretty weird ideas about “freedom” (like, maybe it didn’t apply to non-whites).
So at that point I was like NOPE.
I don’t think so, but it’s strange that socialists should be all super-pushy and about the state telling you what to do (in theory, kinda, but you know what I mean), and libertarians all about personal freedom and stuff, but… it doesn’t work out that way. It’s almost like people have a moral basis first and then seek out politics that suits their morality (however that is derived), and people who care about others, weep when they see someone starving in the street or the like, seek out of socialism, whereas people who are tired of others telling them what to do seek out libertarianism, even if they were being told VERY REASONABLE things lol.
