This is a tip of the iceberg thats floating outside acadamia. People adopt a label like "libertarian" because they don't like paying taxes or want to take drugs, then adjust a somewhat sane mental outlook on the world toward craziness by adopting beliefs that they later read somewhere come with the libertarian package. And the posture is driven intellectually, without considering what the existential consequences, long term or globally would be.

Many people can only form opinions based upon what they percieve as their self interest. Innate curiosity seems to be absent from their experience. They choose occupations, seek employment positions, run for elective office, earn degrees, adopt political, religious and social labels and form all of their opinions based upon nothing more than some vaguely felt, often very parochial, sense of self-interest.
