If Vegetarians Eat Vegetables, Then Libertarians…
Michael Pickens, the executive director of the Libertarian Party of Washington, is eager to spread the word about Libertarian ideology, so he’s published an article this morning in which he explains what being a Libertarian is really all about. Pickens writes, “The word Libertarian essentially means, ‘Believer in liberty.’ For example, vegetarians believe in only eating vegetables.”
Maybe the reason that the Libertarian Party has failed to catch on in the state of Washington has to do with kind of logical glitch. If being a vegetarian means that you eat vegetables, doesn’t being a Libertarian mean that you like to rip off chunks of liberty with your mouth, chew it raw and swallow it down to be digested in your stomach?
