A college libertarian movement arose in 1968-1972 and was comprised of such groups as Young Americans for Freedom (which splintered in 1969), the Society for Rational Individualists, and the Society for Individual Liberty (an outgrowth of SRI), and the [[Student Libertarian Action Movement (SLAM), an uncompromisingly anarchistic organization. They operated under the banner of "No war, no welfare and no damn taxation." The college libertarian movement was already in decline in 1971 (due partly to fundraising difficulties and elitism), at the same time that the LP was ascending.[1] Many other organizations, such as Students for a Libertarian Society, have also folded.
