“Argumentation Ethics and Liberty: A Concise Guide” (2011) and Supplemental Resources

My article “Argumentation Ethics and Liberty: A Concise Guide” was published in Mises Daily (May 27, 2011) (it includes “Discourse Ethics and Liberty: A Skeletal Ebook” [archived comments on Mises thread]). Below I note some relevant supplemental material that has been published since or that I have been made aware of that was not noted in the original article, and a few pieces with missing links from the original. It was also discussed on the Mises blog when published (archived comments)

    Wow, this seems so official. I’m a bit embarrassed about some of the early posts, I am still learning. Maybe I should go back and put strikethroughs over all the bits where I hadn’t figured it out yet, or provide addenda. I’m allowed to make mistakes in a blog post, right?
    Anyhow, thanks for including my stuff, that is very flattering. And I certainly appreciate your help and encouragement.

    Here’s one http://mattbruenig.com/2013/05/16/my-favorite-libertarian-argument/

    Almost every time i get into a discussion on AE i am linked to this as if it is some Hoppian instant smack down. This guy regularly attacks libertarian property rights theory, and is starting to gain a lot of attention for it, for some reason.

    Anyway, here’s his famous conclusion on AE:

    “When the entire globe has been snatched up as property, something possible in a libertarian regime, you may literally find yourself with nowhere to physically stand. You would not be able to exist on the earth whatsoever. Being able to exist on the earth is clearly a presupposition for making arguments on it, meaning that in fact it is a performative contradiction to argue for libertarian institutions.

    I could go on, but I don’t think it is necessary. It is worth noting that Rothbard, an equally bad philosopher, thought Hoppe’s argument was genius. What you think that says about Rothbard’s intellect is your call.”
