Subject: Libertarian Purity – LRC Blog
So, perfect adherence to the NAP, etc., is required of all libertarians, eh?
yes (and it’s required of anyone who claims to be libertarian).
btw – both murray and Ron Paul can be (in fact, are) wrong about abortion.
So, in your view, neither Murray nor Ron is a libertarian? I think that is a difficult position to defend!
I agree with you on one thing though: the views of both Murray and Ron are contrary to libertarianism on abortion.
Here are a few of my publications on that issue:
