Everyone is a libertarian when it comes to his or her own choices:
- My speech should be legal (though those other guys are over the line)
- My choices, diet, lifestyle should be legal (though those other guys need to be protected from themselves)
- My personal interactions are fine (but those other guys are all racists, threats to children, indecent, etc)
- My business is great (but those other guys are all evil exploiters)
The hard part about defending freedom is not defending it for oneself. The hard part is defending other people's right to be free. TJIC makes this point quite well in response to a Boston Globe editorial.
