Anarchists and Leftists Share a Common Blind Spot – Ignoring Human Nature

This is not the first time I’ve broached this topic and baby it won’t be the last. And not just because I live in the Free State of New Hampshire.

New Hampshire Ballot: Libertarians Lose Access, Ask “What Next?” (I have the Answer)

The major parties, in the interest of less competition, require New Hampshire Libertarians to obtain at least 4% of the vote in any election to retain access to the ballot.
