SEX, DRUGS, AND...LIBERTARIANISM?: Susan Lee has an awesome article of how libertarian principles are slowly creeping into the America psyche.
Yes, we're taking over. And there's no stopping it.
Seriously though, I think she summed it up nicely here:
One can imagine, though, how discouraged F.A. Hayek must have felt in 1944 when he sat down to write "The Road to Serfdom." Now, few doubt that Hayek has won and that the economic argument has been settled in favor of free markets. What remains is the battle over politics and culture. One down, two to go.
I think one day we'll see a much more socially liberal, economically conservative population. I would consider myself a "South Park" Republican, or a socially liberal Republican/libertarian. But I'm not the only one. You see it every day with some of the best conservative commentators. With Sean Hannity talking about sex (gasp!)on his radio show or Pejman
talking about Grand Theft Auto (whoa!), one of the most violent video games ever made, in a favorable
light, free market advocates have certainly come a long way. And we'll all be better because of it.
