George Will gives a nice plug for libertarian ideas, as expressed in a book by Nick Gillespie and Matt Welch, “The Declaration of Independents: How Libertarian Politics Can Fix What’s Wrong with America“:
A generation that has grown up with the Internet “has essentially been raised libertarian,” swimming in markets, which are choices among competing alternatives.
And the left weeps. Preaching what has been called nostalgianomics, liberals mourn the passing of the days when there was one phone company, three car companies, three television networks, an airline cartel, and big labor and big business were cozy with big government.
Words like that make me more hopeful about the future.
