Yet another weird SF fan


I'm a mathematician, a libertarian, and a science-fiction fan. Common sense? What's that?

Debate Wanted

I would like to see a debate between Edwin Lyngar (who supposedly quit libertarianism because it was too reactionary) and the ex-libertarians described here:

Many reactionaries are post-libertarians, i.e., not libertarians. A rite of passage into reaction/neoreaction is the renunciation of libertarianism. I was never a libertarian, so it’s taken me a bit of time to fully understand the relationship between libertarianism and neoreaction, but I understand it now. Libertarians make personal freedom axiomatic, and refuse to consider the negative externalities of that freedom to traditional structures like society and the family. This is anathema to reactionaries.
Is libertarianism too reactionary or not reactionary enough?

Broken link.

...but, yes, it's interesting how ancap / libertarianism is giving birth to neoreaction.

I see ancap as having one big unanswered question: "...but once we get our liberty, how do we keep it from the exact same encroachments as happened last time?"

Neoreaction answers exactly SOME OTHER QUESTION, specifically "but once we have our liberty, how do we deal with the poor and the otherwise unconnected?"

I find this...odd.

I think I fixed the link.
