Libertarianism, Intelligence, and Eugenic Statism
The vulgar nonsense about only people with a certain IQ being welcome in a "libertarian" society is nothing more than thinly veiled eugenic statism. After all, in essence this is precisely what is being said and believed by modern statist "social engineers": sure, we are all libertarians, but we also realize that only us social engineers understand what it means to make good use of one's personal liberty, while the rest are only fit to follow our wise commands. Every ruling statist believes that statism is libertarianism for the privileged, the smart, or the otherwise anointed. But it is only when non-ruling so-called libertarians claim to believe that as well when things get truly ridiculous.
