Brink Lindsey says:
Let me make clear that I’m not wild about calling myself a libertarian. First, I have to clarify that I’m a “small-l” libertarian — i.e., I have no affiliation with the Libertarian Party, which I consider to be a cringe-inducing embarrassment. Second, I’m not a hard-core ideologue, as many self-described libertarians are. I think anarchism is absurd, and I don’t believe that the so-called “minimal state” is an intellectually tenable construct. I’m interested in expanding the frontiers of real-world liberty, not spinning utopias.
I wish I’d said it.
