The tyranny of crying wolf
On the right, particularly the far right libertarians, there is a propensity to cry wolf - that every action of the State is, inevitably, moving us closer to the Road to Serfdom.
While it is comforting to generalize all actions of the State, there is a difference between a massively bloated farm bill and the invasion of the Ukraine for their wheat fields.
Libertarians, take notice next time you call a Conservative a fascist-in-training.
Update: This is why the Libertarians are more of a cult than a political party, always bound to lose.
