The Big Question Anonymous - "How do I talk to non-libertarians about what a libertarian or specifically a freecoaster is? Some of my friends unfortunately have negative views or prejudice toward Free Staters and libertarians, so I’ve avoided talking about it. But I feel like these convos should happen and I guess I’m just not really sure where to start. I’m not aiming to change anyone’s mind but get them to think about it in a new light so at least they don’t hate me. I know you guys have had some success with this and maybe it’s already been covered – but it is a struggle for me and it weighs on me a lot."
