​As Bob Dylan would say ​
The Times They Are A-Changin'
​ ; not surprising I suppose as we approach the Singularity. 3 examples:

​1) Slogans that I myself would have spouted until very recently no longer
make sense to me.

2) Due to the advance of technology, for the first time in human history it
is no longer a economic necessity that somebody be poor.

3) Strict adherence to classical libertarian dogma, will lead to the
collapse of civilization

And if you think these 3 changes in thought are
​all ​
that will be necessary in the future then you just don't understand what a
meat grinder the Singularity will be. Flexibility will be essential for
survival and these are just the first 3 baby steps.
