Are Libertarians Doing Enough to Listen to the Concerns of the Masses?


RW response:

I am not sure it is a case of listening to the masses. It seems pretty clear to me that they are spooked by the COVID-19 propaganda. It is mass hysteria.

The problem is: How do you reach the masses when they are in a mass panic?

In their current state, they are absorbing scare headlines without attempting to think through the logic of the claims. It is a real tough nut to crack, especially when most do not appreciate how important freedom is to a well-functioning society.

It is good to see some resistance out there to the lockdowns but we do not yet have the number of protesters that will give politicians concern.

The pain vs. fear scale for most is still weighted down on the side of COVID-19 fear.

The fear must be overthrown somehow.
