Many libertarians naturally oppose the wars of the state and the excuses it gives for them–but not all. The principled anti-war, anti-state, pro-freedom, pro-individual, pro-rights stance of LewRockwell.com, Anti-State.com, AntiWar.com, the Independent Institute, et al. is being attacked from other erstwhile libertarians, e.g. Brink Lindsey, Cato‘s Director of the Center for Trade Policy Studies, Virginia Postrel (see Postrel’s 4/4/02 post on “Libertarian Isolationists”; see David Gordon’s brilliant review of Postrel’s “stasist/dynamist” thesis), and ex(?)-Objectivist writer David Brown, of FEE/Laissez Faire Books (not to mention assorted neocons, globalist hawks, and their ilk). The attacks are variously ridiculous, disingenous, ignorant, and downright embarrasing to their authors. Shame. ‘Nuff said.
