Good ideas don’t require force. Government is force. If it’s a good idea, people will do it on their own.

A common catchphrase for Libertarians is that “good ideas don’t require force.”  Yet, when the government, whose enforcement powers are based entirely on use of force, demands that people engage in otherwise “good ideas” it has been seen that many people who may have otherwise worn the mask, stayed at home, or engaged in social distancing, end up rebelling against government dictates.
