internet libertarians are usually two or more of the following: white
, male, suburban
, (hostilely) atheistic, and well-off. they usually have close-knit, supportive families as well. a true internet libertarian has never lived for long periods of time in anywhere but an affluent suburb. they are naive, sheltered fucks to a tee. they also tend to be less smug and vocal about their politics IRL
- they fear (more) social rejection.
internet libertarians are mostly Randite
s and Ron Paul Revolution
groupies. you will find them preaching their Pollyanna
-like views of wanton deregulation/decentralization/isolationism in any sufficiently nerdy online venue - think Slashdot
, or an imageboard
with a political discussion section.
they tend to be excessively fond of dense, idiosyncratic video games like TF2
are more likely to be internet libertarians than most other e-subcultures.
you know the asshole who sits in the back of the class, glued to his laptop? the one who smugly interrupts teacher and student alike? the youth who never lacks for anything except friends, but doesn't get along well with people different from him? yeah, that's your average internet libertarian.
