    The young lady has posted several other YouTube videos that are also interesting. However, she should be careful- I am sure a full IRS audit isn’t likely far off.

    Ah. Russian immigrant with a Westernized first name. I knew I detected a hint of an accent in the video. Due to her hair, I found Judaism implausible. I do not have any accent.

    I’m of the opinion that liberty can’t be won by or for a collective, and I think this is the consistent libertarian mindset, as opposed to attempting to form a collective to stop another one.

    You can’t force anyone to want to be free, so the best you can hope for is that you, yourself, become free.

    Having said that, it so happens that if everyone around you supports the idea of having a third party steal from you on their behalf, then you’re going to have a hard time being free.

    So, I need others to pursue liberty for themselves, but not as a collective since that would be a contradiction.

    It turns out, then, that it is in the interest of the libertarian to discover a way to convince others to voluntarily seek their own liberty, and to do so one mind at a time (or multiple minds at once, preferably, but each one as an individual).

    This sounds a lot more consistent than trying to pit one collective against another.

      Gary North also made this point, pointing out the War of Independence strongly decreased American liberty.
