Is Paleolibertarianism Dead – Or Just Homeless?
LewRockwell.com doesn`t seem to have responded to Arthur Pendleton`s analysis of its sad regression from paleolibertarinism to the left-liberal mean, except to post this pathetic theoretical twaddle by Butler Shaffer, essentially arguing that immigration is OK because only private property owners can have the right to forbid trespass. See what we mean? There`s a reason why none of Ayn Rand`s protagonists had families: this entire non-atomistic dimension of the humanity experience is missing from modal libertarianism. It`s not missing from the writing of Illana Mercer, who combines libertarianism with an appreciation of the nation and the dangers of immigration in a recent WorldNetDaily column Israel: Role model for America. Paleolibertarianism exists, it just apparently needs a new home.
