In My Best Horseshack Voice, I Yell “OOO OOO CALL ON ME!”

Mistermix:

This case was decided by the usual 5-4 vote, with the inevitable Alito, Roberts, Scalia and Thomas dissenting votes. Reading about a case like this, I wonder how anyone can justify voting for Republicans on libertarian principles. If we had one more hard-right Republican appointee on the court, it would be just fine for cops to essentially coerce (is there any other word for it?) confessions from kids without parents present.

This is easy. Some libertarians are crazy:

Some of them are lazy and smug, but smart enough to know where the money is in punditry:

Some of them are actually Republicans, but get really heated up about drug legalization and robot sex:

And some of them were apparently raped by a union member as a child and just have no sense of proportion whatsoever:

dan at #15 makes a conjecture:

    A libertarian is someone who thinks that a mandatory helmet law is for motorcyclists is a greater infringement on liberty than arbitrary detention, torture, warrantless searches. . . .

and kth at #23 also contributes:

    [for libertarians] no-knock raids and the Corporation for Public Broadcasting are categorically the same in terms of tyranny.

We now have a hypothesis. How shall we test it?

Lo! Who’s there? Why, it’s Matt Welch bringing proof!

    Actually my opposition to the bailout was much stronger—I never came out one way or another on the Iraq war, until it was far too late.

Absolutely beautimous.

And then there are the ones who are Republicans but realize how uncool it is to admit that, so they call themselves libertarian and vote for every Republican they can.

However, some libertarians manage to balance some of the inherent contradictions, and really do come across on the side of freedom and individual liberty in almost every case. Radley Balko, who has taken principled stands across the spectrum and who has done incredible work on the drug war, police, and prosecutorial excesses, springs to mind (even though he hates me for pointing out that many of his colleagues are fools).

    The nice thing about being libertarian is that unlike “liberal” and “conservative,” it isn’t a synonym for one of the political parties. So you’re not actually tied to either one of the messy, corrupt, you know, real sides of the aisle – you get to be above it all and you get to tell everybody that if people would only listen to you, everything would be perfect. Plus, it’s “libertarian,” so it’s all about “liberty.” Liberty’s cool, isn’t it? Who’s against liberty?

    Why is the LoOG not moved to the mock column yet?

    But thank you for contributing to my Unified Field Theory of Libertarianism.
    My current hypothesis is that there are only two main classes of libertarians, inspite of EDK’s and others attempts at creating a random name generator for crypto-conservatives and ‘freed’ market fucktards; liberaltarians, bleeding heart libertarians, classical liberals, bottomup liberatarian liberalism, civil libertarians, etc.
    There are only liberty as means libertarians and liberty as goal libertarians.

    Ghanima Atreides says:

    Here is Dr. Manzi’s explanation.

    One thing that has become clear to me through these dinners is that there are two strands of libertarian thought. In somewhat cartoon terms, one strand takes liberty to be a (or in extreme cases, the) fundamental human good in and of itself; the other takes liberty to be a means to the end of discovery of methods of social organization that create other benefits. I’ll call the first “liberty-as-goal” libertarianism and the second “liberty-as-means” libertarianism. Obviously, one can hold both of these beliefs simultaneously, and many people do. But in my observation, when pushed to develop a position on some difficult issue, most self-described libertarians reveal a temperament that leans strongly in one direction or the other. Again, in cartoon terms, I’d describe the first temperament as idealistic, deductive and theory-based, and the second as practical, inductive and experiment-based.

    Dr. Manzi is the Head Bulshytt Talker in Chief of the Temple of Libertarianism.

    Liberty-as-means libertarianism sees the world in an evolutionary framework: societies evolve rules, norms, laws and so forth in order to adapt and survive in a complex and changing external environment. At a high level of abstraction, internal freedoms are necessary so that the society can learn (which requires trial-and-error learning because the external reality is believed to be too complex to be fully comprehended by any existing theory (translation- choo stoopid)) and adapt (which is important because the external reality is changing). We need liberty, therefore, because we are so ignorant of what works in practical, material terms. But this raises what I think of as the paradox of libertarianism, or more precisely, the paradox of liberty-as-means libertarianism.

    Liberty as magic.

    Start with a practical question: should prostitution be legal? The canonical libertarian position is that this is a consensual act between adults, and should be legal. The liberty-as-means position is far more tentative. We don’t know the overall effects of legalized prostitution. Some people have the theory that it will make people happier, provide incomes and stabilize marriages. Others think it will lead to personal degradation, female victimization and societal collapse. It is very hard to know which theory is right, or if there is only one right answer as opposed to different best answers for different social contexts, or if the relative predictive accuracy of various theories will change over time as the environment changes. What the liberty-as-means libertarian calls for is the freedom to experiment: let different localities try different things, and learn from this experience. In the best case this is literally consciousness learning from structured experiments, and in the weaker case it is only metaphorical learning, in that the localities with more adaptive sets of such rules will tend to win out in evolutionary competition over time.

    aka, localized mob rule, or my term for it, Distributed Jesusland&#0153.

Unless, of course, the people banding together are workers parasites trying to negotiate for better salaries and working conditions extort their Galtian overlords. In that case, voluntary associations pursuing selfish interests are worse than broccoli and the Stalin mandate put together.

    @Head Bulshytt Talker in Chief of the Temple of Libertarianism(superluminar):

    you have to remember how ideas moving through the libertarian mind approach a finite impulse response similar to a SAW filter, although in this case instead of classic rayleigh waves the memes penetrate the crystal structure such that large-scale granulation and cooper pairing of memes according to BCS theory allows free flow of ideas concerning liberty.

    these bosonic mind-pairs of memes cause a repulsive memetic field in the libertarian mind allowing the filter mechanism to float a distance from the mind itself ala the meissner effect, which is the main problem in libertarian thinking – the mind physically separates itself from its own filter.

    now, this effect can be put to good use in classrooms and trade shows, but it makes for bad politics.

    Although it pisses me off that we spend so much time talking about a fucking lunatic fringe ideology. If that lunatic fringe didn’t include a few billionaires funding a noise machine, libertarianism would be as discussed as communitarianism.

    Thanks libertarians for keeping the failed ideas of the 1850s alive in the discourse. You know why the “classic liberals” went away? Because liberals actually notice when stuff doesn’t work, and change that stuff. This is why I hate contemporary libertarians who call themselves “classic liberals” – no, you’re not a liberal at all.

    Actually, in one fundamental sense (we) modern liberals have regressed from the classical liberals.

    The latter understood that the wealth accruing to landowners is a form of legalized theft, and that the solution is to tax land value heavily. OTOH, most modern liberals don’t have an understanding of why government in the absense of heavy taxation of economic rents is a machine for massively redistributing wealth upwards.

    Liberals are pro-individual rights, libertarians are anti-government.

    A few hundred years ago when “government” mean “centralized authoritarian European-style monarchy,” that was the same thing. As liberal experiments like the U.S, grew, it eventually dawned on liberals that guaranteeing the individual his freedom from government meant nothing if you were just going to let someone else step in and take over the oppressing.

    really, classical liberals were anti-government because they were pro-individual rights, whereas libertarians are pro-individual rights because they are anti-government.

    you note that classical liberals were originally reacting to authoritative regimes, and neo-classical liberals had to do a bit of soul searching when industry and corporate power started rising. modern liberals came out of the process by realizing that corporate power can be just as destructive to individual liberty as an oppressive government, whereas libertarians stuck to the anti-government guns and welcomed corporate power with open arms or at least stuck their fingers in their ears and ignored it.

    its more than that, Hayek was wrong.
    The growth of the welfare state doesnt lead to serfdom, it leads to secularism.
    In the beginning, when, federalism worked, the local engines of civil welfare were the churches. But when blacks and women got the vote and the White Patriarchy Social Cohesion model began to degrade, the feds were forced to intervene to deliver civil rights and civil welfare, in the South especially.
    Federal welfare is cheaper in the social capital sense; churches demand tithes, behavior comformanty, church attendence….and in the South an impossible price for entry…white skin.
    haha, federal welfare is destroying church welfare in the open market, because federal welfare is free and anyone can get it.

    Yes, this is fantastic. Classic liberals were trying to unwind merchantilism and hell, even a good bit of feudalism was still latent in the system. Tariffs were mostly used to protect the interests of existing rich people, and the State was almost entirely a servant to their interests.

    But once the Corn Laws and Poor Laws and all that stuff was repealed, we had the Gilded Age and the robber barons, and children falling exhausted into machines and thugs beating down unionists and liberals had themselves a good rethink about where the bad stuff in society really comes from.

    But libertarians are only anti-government in the sense that government seeks to uphold NATIONAL individual rights, and to regulate the rapacious hobbesian untrammeled greed of the “freed” market.
    Libertarians seek to enforce localized mob rule, the rights of the states, counties, cities, etc to impose localized white conservative christian rights.

    Many libertarians support military spending and foreign interventionism. This is again, a conflict between UNIVERSAL human rights and the localized (america vs the world in this case) human rights libertarians are in favor of.
