Libertarians Do Not Promote Liberty

US-style libertarianism is a marketing exercise, a self-promotion exercise, rebranding ugly aspirations and sad delusions of individual control as liberty. There is no real liberty without democracy. No libertarian has ever valued the substance of liberty. PS: There are few things less democratic than what libertarians and especially libertechbrotarians advocate in the name of "democratization" (that is to say, usually disruptive deregulation, status quo amplification, and elite-incumbent upward failure).
