Authority Elbows In At The Libertarian Party National Convention
Tomorrow, the 2014 national convention of the Libertarian Party will begin. For a Libertarian convention, the convention looks tightly focused on rules and regulations. The first several events are:
Bylaws Committee Meeting
Credentials Committee Meeting
Convention Registration & Delegate Credentialing
They’re Libertarians, so why can’t they all just agree to show up, and then let marvelous things happen, free of all of these structures?
But, as luck would have it, the Libertarians seem to be all about authoritarian structures these days. Just think of a symbol of an authoritarian structure, and the Libertarians seem to be embracing it.
How about big Greek-style columns, for instance – the kind they put in front of all those big government buildings to make them seem important and powerful? Yes, the Libertarian Party has got those now as well, as seen here in the official logo of Libertarian National Convention 2014. Everywhere there’s a straight line, they slapped a column right in there.
Libertarians: Now with the power of faux marble!
