On Sunday, June 27th, the massive pro-freedom festival came to a close. The week-long ‘Porcupine Freedom Festival’ (called Porcfest more often) is held each June in northern New Hampshire. Well, it used to be held each June, anyway. This year, nobody actually showed up.
Normally, the camping festival attracts between one and two thousand pro-freedom individuals from New Hampshire and from all over the united states. However, this year, not a single person showed up to the campground for Porcfest – because they were all dead. The Free State Project’s annual festival was an epic failure. As the photos demonstrate, the campground remained 100% desolate without a living thing in sight for the whole week, except for a few bears and around 2,500 porcupines.
As we mentioned in an article last June, over 1,000 reckless libertarians traveled to Lancaster for the annual festival despite the raging pandemic. Within six weeks, every single attendee died of COVID-19. Naturally, none of those people were able to attend the 2021 Porcfest gathering, and those who did not attend last year’s super-spreader event were clearly too afraid to attend this year’s festival.
When will libertarians and anarchists learn that they should trust government officials when they are warned about a pandemic?
Now that thousands of their community members have died from the often-fatal coronavirus, will the others rethink their dogmatic and reckless ideology?
If libertarians learn from their terrible mistake, we will see some benefit from this event. If they continue to ignore the virus, even more libertarians will die. Either way, supporters of strong government will end up as the winners!
