Distinguishing Libertarian Philosophy from Political Strategy

“Political disputation is not confined to the ground of an ethics of liberty but extends to cover matters of political strategy. Political strategy often involves coalitions and alliances that may cover many different philosophical perspectives. As Murray Rothbard observes in ‘A Strategy for the Right,’ there is no obviously accurate political label to identify the political strategy that he defended …. Ultimately, the debate on what a libertarian society is shows the philosophical limits of the political philosophy of libertarianism.” (06/04/24)
