A really good report from Reason.TV about the downfall of the Libertarian Party. This ‘Mises Caucus’ seems to look like a bastardised version of Murray Rothbard meeting the hillbillies prone to fighting.
The Twitter of this organisation is just an illustration of mindless contrarianism, praising Putin/Taliban/China along with just a few sound judgements.
For me, libertarianism is not about puerile contrarianism, but about the preservation and enhancement of the individual freedom by means of reason, not by means of emotional blackmail. So, if this is the face of libertarianism in one of the freest countries of the world, I think it is time for me to leave this marker, at least until the clouds clear.
