My Goal as a Libertarian: To Oppress People

From the Tom Woods Letter:

Now and again we are treated to something like this:

This person works at a D.C. think tank where a dislike of people like us, and me in particular, is literally company policy: nobody is allowed to cite me, go on my cruise, or even retweet me.

That’s an actual policy at an actual institution. Real Dissent: A Libert... Thomas E. Woods Jr. Best Price: $8.48 Buy New $7.93 (as of 03:10 UTC - Details)

(“Institution” being the key word.)

“Neo-Confederate” is a made-up word that doesn’t mean anything. I assume it’s supposed to insinuate support for federalism and secession and yes, as a non-comatose libertarian, I support both of those things.

Which one of my 1430 podcast episodes involves wanting “the liberty to oppress others”? It’s almost like she doesn’t even listen to the Tom Woods Show!

(Remember Woods’s Law #5: the fewer episodes of the Tom Woods Show someone has listened to, the more outlandish the accusations.)

All the early (as in postwar) libertarians were decentralists, including Frank Chodorov (are we really not allowed to like even Frank Chodorov anymore?), Felix Morley, and Murray Rothbard.

I would be curious: which so-called “neo-Confederate” view did Thomas Jefferson himself not hold? (Be sure, dear student, to mention the Kentucky Resolutions of 1798 in your answer, along with Jefferson’s repeatedly stated support for secession.)
