Lew Rockwell on defending the rights of people whom society despises

It’s easy to defend the rights of people who are popular and whose views are in fashion. It is much more difficult – thankless, even – to defend the rights of those whom society despises. Libertarians need not endorse or actually be such people – I know of no one proposing such a thing – but if we do not defend their rights we are frauds.

~ Lew Rockwell, "What Libertarianism Is, and Isn't," March 31, 2014,
