“[Aggression] may have had survival advantage in caveman days, to get more food, territory or a partner with whom to reproduce, but now it threatens to destroy us all.”
Who wouldn't want a peaceful, loving society?
Aggression is the human race’s biggest failing and it “threatens to destroy us all”, Stephen Hawking has said, urging people to be more empathetic.

A parable of libertarian purity:
I was walking home one evening and came upon a clearly depressed man standing at the edge of a bridge, looking like he was about to jump. I called out to him to wait, and ran over to see what was the matter.
"It's this country," he lamented. "It's falling into ruin and there's nothing I can do about it. The election was the last straw. I don't want to live on this planet anymore."
"Well cheer up," I said. "We're all in this together. Say, are you a conservative, or a libertarian?"
"A libertarian," he said.
"That's great!" I said. "See, you're not alone. Are you a free-market libertarian or a libertarian socialist?"
"Free-market libertarian," he said.
"Me too!" I said. "Paleo-libertarian or neo-libertarian?"
"Paleo-libertarian," he said.
"Hey, so am I!" I said. "Chicago or Austrian school of economics?"
"Austrian," he said.
"Me too," I said. "Hayek or Rothbardian strand?"
"Rothbardian," he said.
"Same here," I said. "Are you a consequentialist or deontological libertarian?"
"Consequentialist," he said.
So I said, "Die, statist scum!" and pushed him off the bridge.

The strip clubs as a gateway to sex trafficking argument is about as legit as the marijuana being a gateway drug.
But who needs a legit argument for more taxes, right?
A stripper is a sex trafficker is a source of state revenue right?

Why would anyone want to be forced or coerced into doing anything? Why not liberty?

The current regulations, testing, and inspections of the USDA didn't catch the listeria issue, yet Blue Bell voluntarily began recalling products, introduced a testing procedure far more vigorous than the industry standard, and eventually recalled their entire line of products to keep the public safe.
Quite the example of a responsible corporate citizen.
Blue Bell Ice Cream is voluntarily recalling all of its products currently on the market
