Might is right

You have to read this. Cover to cover. I don't know if it's libertarian, or what. But it strikes a chord that goes all the way through.

Courage, I say! Courage, not goodness, is the great desideratum — courage that requires neither tin horns, nor calcium lights, nor brass bands, nor shouting multitudes to call it into effective action.

But courage that goes its way ALONE, as undauntedly as when it marches to ‘victory or death’ amid the menacing stride of armed and bannered legions. Courage, that has made up its mind to conquer or — perish!
