At PJ Media, I reflect briefly on why I am no longer an orthodox libertarian:
I used to identify as a libertarian. There are many reasons why I no longer do so. One is the libertarians’ often obsessive attempt to figure out every question in life as if it were a matter of simple algebra: plug in The Perfect Libertarian Axioms and get The One True Answer.
Another reason is a style of debate, common among the younger, orthodox libertarians, that allows for no disagreement without denunciation.
