Random libertarian quote of the day

Adherents to Warren‘s assertion that group opinion determined the actual operation of a community, individual behavior at “Modern Times” was usually evaluated in the same terms, an essential corollary to a type of life founded upon unconditional respect for individual personality. As an old resident explained, the passive boycott became the principal weapon utilized against undesirables, a device of undisputed quality in their practical experience :

When we wish to rid ourselves of unpleasant persons, we simply let them alone. We buy nothing of them, sell them nothing, exchange no words with them — in short, by establishing a complete system of non-intercourse with them, we show them unmistakably that they are not wanted here, and they usually go away of their own accord.
