“Libertarian” Stossel Marginally Less Statist Than Trump
Seemingly John Stossel never sits down to write without the goal of further lowering the bar for qualifying as a libertarian. This time (“My Trump Problem,” Reason, Nov. 11), he’s managed to push the criterion to the all-time low of being somewhat less statist than Donald Trump.

Move Over, Hollywood: Stossel’s Writing His Own Fantasy

Criei a expressão “libertarianismo vulgar” alguns anos atrás para descrever a atitude de notórios libertários ao defender reflexivamente o sistema capitalista corporativo atual como se fosse o “livre mercado”. Para eles, os princípios de “livre mercado” justificam os males da economia corporativista. Recentemente, pude testemunhar um dos piores exemplos desse fenômeno, cortesia de John Stossel…
