Don’t Tread on Topless Tuesdays
Mark Nugent     June 16th, 2011

These sorts of hijinks certainly aren’t representative of libertarians in general, or even of the Free State Project itself: as Weigel notes, the Keene wing of that movement is particularly prone to confrontational acts of civil disobedience.

It’s not easy to see what the Keene activists hope to accomplish with these stunts. One of the aims of the libertarian movement is surely to convince others that people can live together peacefully and responsibly without criminal laws forcing them to do so. Holding “Topless Tuesdays” and pot-smoking rallies next to a middle school might not be the best way to achieve this. These sorts of hijinks only make sense if their aim is to persuade all the non-libertarians to move away.
