The Three Way Fight on the Libertarian Left

It seems most of the conflicts on the libertarian left are between these three contending sets of values.

  1. Enlightenment classical liberalism

2. The advancement of historically oppressed populations

3. Wider libertarian, anarchist, decentralist, anti-authoritarian, or anti-statist principles.

I would argue that #1 is the baseline, the irreducible minimum that cannot be compromised. #2 contains a set of generally laudable goals, the pursuit of which must be subordinated to the baseline and consistent with the end game, with #3 being the end game.
