Watch: Why Are Libertarians Always Fighting? – Michael Munger on Destination vs. Direction Libertarians

In a speech to the Libertarian Party of Indiana in 2011, Michael Munger explains the “destination vs. direction” fight that exists in the libertarian movement. While most libertarians agree on 99% of things, there is a fundamental difference in approach and messaging. Should we deliver a bold end game message or layout a path to that end game?

Michael Munger is an economist, chair of the political science department at Duke University, and was the Libertarian candidate for Governor of North Carolina in 2008. Watch the full speech:
