    That is a great piece. This “What libertarians and conservatives share isn’t a shared commitment to freedom so much as a common way of talking about freedom. Conservatives and Republicans like to invoke the Founding Fathers, talk about free markets and limited government, quote Hayek, and so forth” is a excellent observation. To many debates end up around philosophical principles which are great but unless you know how to practically apply them it is often a lot of hot air. Even my apparently gun hating self has had discussions with NRA members where we largely agree on gun regulations. Not on the sainted 2nd amendment but on what regs there should be.Report
