While South Carolina removes the Confederate flag, the crypto-libertarian Cato Institute has gone into full PR mode, posting numerous articles and videos on their social media accounts on why libertarians should condemn the Confederacy.
They really just don’t get it.
Wouldn’t be the first time Cato doesn’t get it, of course. Cato is more interested in being ‘acceptable’ to polite society than it in being right in any consistent and principled way. So they condemn what is easy to condemn, and don’t condemn, the condemnation of which would get them ‘tut tutted’ by the establishment.
P.S. i think the author meant “pseudo-libertarian” rather than “crypto-libertarian.”
