Is Libertarianism a Pathway to Stalinism?



Today I ran across by chance the article mentioned below.  It is a reminder of how the extreme elements that have control of the Libertarian Party can take things in a horrible way.  In private conversations lately I’ve compared the extremists in control of the party with the losers to Stalin in his removal of the more liberal Bolsheviks who supported Lenin.

                The article is Why libertarianism is closer to Stalinism than you think.


                This passage really made me think: “Libertarianism, in short, resonates with an avid quest for political purity.”

                Much in the article is unduly harsh, and I disagree with some of its premises and conclusions.  But  it frames something that needs to be considered by reasonable Libertarians worried about the viability of the Libertarian Party.
