There’s nothing about this in Boaz’s piece, but at least one libertarian who writes for this website has given the issue of slavery significant attention and placed it in the context of the overall growth of government — namely, Andrew Napolitano, in his previous book, Dred Scott’s Revenge: A Legal History of Race and Freedom in America.

Of course, Napolitano considers slavery an abomination, but as a libertarian opposed to murder and centralized power, he also decries Abraham Lincoln’s brutal, unlawful waging of the Civil War. No wonder Boaz didn’t mention it.
