"A person with racist attitudes is highly objectionable, and we are entitled to criticize him, refuse to socialize with him, ostracize him, and the like. But libertarians will insist that the state may not send him the police to try to reform him. Conversely, can a racist person be a libertarian? Matt suggests he cannot, but I don’t think this is right, if by 'libertarian” we merely mean adherence to [libertarian principle]." (12/31/11)
