- “Personal Responsibility”: a.k.a. “I don’t give a shit what happens to you, as long as I’m ok.”, and, “Don’t tell me what to do.”

The twin pillars of Libertarian Ideology are “I don’t give a shit what happens to you, as long as I’m ok.” and “Don’t tell me what to do.” Those boil down to Social Darwinism and Political Anarchy. Social Darwinism is one of the pillars of Fascism. Now Fascism and Political Anarchy are not compatible, but when the two conflict Fascism will always dominate because it is the ideology of the social collective, while Political Anarchy is unworkable on any level beyond the individual.
At the state level Fascism is practically workable, while Political Anarchy simply isn’t, especially when you are dealing with the sheer number of humans living on our planet in the 21st Century.
The line from Libertarian Ideology to Fascism is, unfortunately, a direct one. A line that Libertarians vehemently deny exists, but which, unfortunately, we are seeing being drawn in democracies all over the planet in the 21st Century.
