It's one of mindset.

If a libertarian doesn't like guns, he doesn't buy one.
If an authoritarian doesn't like guns, he wants all guns banned.

If a libertarian is a vegetarian, he doesn't eat meat.
If an authoritarian is a vegetarian, he wants all meat products banned.

If a libertarian is down and out, he thinks about how to better his situation.
If an authoritarian is down and out, he thinks about who's going to be forced to fix his situation.

If a libertarian doesn't like a YouTube channel, he unsubscribes.
If an authoritarian doesn't like a YouTube channel, he reports the channel and tries to get it banned.

If a libertarian is non-religious a or non-believer, he doesn't go to church.
If an authoritarian is non-religious or a non-believer, he wants churches and synagogues banned.

If a libertarian decides he needs health care, he finds out what his best options are.
If an authoritarian decides he needs health care, he insists others be forced to pay for his consumption of it.

If a libertarian reads this, he'll probably post it on his social media with a chuckle.
If an authoritarian reads this, he's probably going to comment angrily to say how dare you offend me by posting such things?

Be a libertarian, not an authoritarian.
