Watch: Joan Kennedy Taylor on Respecting Diversity in Libertarianism has collected many great videos of speeches from the early days of the libertarian movement. This video shows that each generation may think their challenges at unity are unique, but they aren’t.

Joan Kennedy Taylor was a journalist, author, and political activist known for her advocacy of individualist feminism and her role in developing the modern American libertarian movement. She passed away in 2005. In this lecture from a Libertarian Party of New York conference in 1981, Taylor stresses the importance of tolerating a diversity of opinions within the American libertarian movement because political movements generally are spontaneously organized.
