What’s a Liberaltarian?

That’s the latest question asked of Reason’s Nick Gillespie and Matt Welch, the authors of the new libertarian manifesto, Declaration of Independents. They have an ongoing Youtube Q & A going on at Hit & Run.

They were also kind of enough to send me a review copy. It’s good so far, too! I’ll have more to say on it when I’m finished.

I think liberaltarianism is still the most likely political coalition going forward, or at least I hope so, as social conservatism fades, and free markets and technology continue to change the world for the better.

  1. Frankly, what I see is that there’s a new generation of economically right-wing people, who don’t carry the social baggage of the older generation, but still are loyal soldiers when it comes to economic issues.
