"Although the label 'voluntaryist' practically died out after the death of Auberon Herbert, its use was renewed in late 1982, when George Smith, Wendy McElroy, and Carl Watner began editing THE VOLUNTARYIST. George Smith, after publishing his article 'Nineteenth-Century Opponents of State Education,' suggested use of the term to identify those libertarians who believed that political action and political parties were antithetical to their ideas."
