We have not even saturated the whole libertarian movement with bitcoin. Surely, we can do better than this.

It may be counterintuitive but I've found that a lot of libertarians are pretty closed-minded. They worship gold and silver like a regular person worships government and when you challenge their beliefs they immediately go on the defensive. I guess it's part of human physiology, we prefer trading one god for another rather than destroying him completely from our minds.

I have noticed that too, JohnDoe.  I think it also has to do with psychology whereby you trust gold and silver because you feel comfortable with them.  Then bitcoin is the new kid on the block, so you are immediately skeptical.

"We will not find a solution to political problems in cryptography, but we can win a major battle in the arms race and gain a new territory of freedom for several years.

Governments are good at cutting off the heads of a centrally controlled networks, but pure P2P networks are holding their own."

There's a thread at their forum, seeking an alternative to PayPal for donations. Naturally I suggested Bitcoin:
