That's a fair question.

To be honest, when I read your comment, "Isn't Buy Nothing Day just an excuse for 'socially-aware' individuals to procrastinate while simultaneously feeling good about themselves?" and then followed your homepage link, I found myself thinking it was a fairly typical example of the disdain in which libertarians hold any attempt at personal action toward the public interest.

In Libertarian philosphy, there is no public interest except, to borrow Milton Friedman's phrase, "the consensus of the goals that the citizens severally serve."

I didn't respond directly to the question because it's a rhetorical tool that already provides its own response.
