Bleeding Heart Libertarians

"Everyone knows that libertarians like free markets. Even we Bleeding Heart Libertarians spend an awful lot of time talking about the economic implications of libertarianism. And it would be easy to infer from this that libertarians care about economic freedom to the neglect of all other freedoms. One might even go on to conclude that libertarians are only concerned with freedom to the extent that such freedom serves the interest of the wealthy and powerful. Such a conclusion is seriously mistaken, I think, even as an interpretation of just the economic aspects of libertarian thought. But it is a mistake for which libertarians themselves bear some responsibility." (05/29/11)
