Brad DeLong continues to piece together the amazing story of the Koch lawsuit for control of Cato. A schadenfreude party for liberals! "From my perspective, of course, the delicious irony is that the arguments against the Kochtopus--powerful and convincing arguments--are not libertarian but rather Burkean, communitarian, and social democratic ones, and thus arguments that no true libertarian could ever possibly make..."

When I saw your comment on Noah Smith's post on libertarianism, I followed the link to your wiki, and I knew you sounded familiar. I've read through a bit of your massive FAQ in the past, and I just wanted to commend you on your work. I'm newer to this battle than you, but as an economics student, I'm neck-deep in this stuff every day. Thank you for your tremendous contribution.

Hey Huben, big fan, even though I think you can be a bit unfair to some of the more moderate libertarians.

Btw, would love you to debunk another clown claiming to have "destroyed" the social contract. It seems to be his entire argument is based on a false definition of what the social contract is in the first place:
