"Regarding Reason’s latest entry into the left-right libertarian alignment talk. If I understand Tim Cavanaugh correctly, he is saying that political judgements/preferences at a visceral level reduce to subjective moral judgements. The typical moral judgments of libertarians do not correspond to left/right moral judgements. Hence, there is a limit to the efficacy of any left(or right) libertarian alignment talk. As a non-cognitivist, I would concur in part with Cavanaugh. However, I differ with his contention that libertarian moral judgements are equally foreign to liberal and conservative ones."
