From Critiques Of Libertarianism
Jump to: navigation, search

A Koch-funded propaganda mill that produces prolefeed for true believers. The most ironically named magazine in existence; it would be better titled "Confirmation Bias".


As outrage grows, Reason editor rejects proof, denies that magazine denied the holocaust [More...]
Reason Magazine's leadership denies its own plain, printed evidence. Propaganda means never having to admit your were wrong.
As Reason’s editor defends its racist history, here’s a copy of its holocaust denial “special issue” [More...]
The January and February 1976 issues featured a who's who of American holocaust deniers and "revisionist history" by a mix of conspiracy theorists. A number of them are still on the Kochtopus payroll.
Brief insights into the libertarian mind [More...]
Freddie deBoer writes: "... the central analytical failure of libertarianism as a worldview: a total and disqualifying inability to measure or account for power as it exists in the real world. [...] I saw essentially no commentary from institutional libertarianism that acknowledged the ugly aesthetics of a bunch of white, privileged libertarians working to undermine efforts to reduce gun crime in an impoverished black city."
Charles Koch's Brain Shuts Down The Holocaust [More...]
"Under Koch’s watch, LeFevre hired one of the most notorious Holocaust deniers to head up the new Rampart College history department: James J. Martin, who later served as an editorial director at neo-Nazi leader Willis Carto’s “Institute for Historical Review,” the largest and the worst of all America’s Holocaust denial outfits."
Ferguson is our “libertarian moment,” but not in the way some libertarians want you to believe [More...]
Libertarians identify Ferguson as needing police reforms: but the problem is in large part that libertarian proposed reforms from Robert Poole 30 years ago have caused the problems.
Found: Libertarians' "Lying To Liberals" Guide Book [More...]
"That they even had to run two articles in the space of a few months on how to trick Americans into accepting libertarianism shows what a hard time REASON was having selling such a counterintuitive political scam to a generation enamored with its idealism."
No Libertarians in the Seventeenth-Century Highlands [More...]
Brad DeLong ridicules a debate held at the Reason magazine 35th anniversary banquet, skewering the wishful thinking of David Friedman. Private coercive enforcement, warlords, organized crime: they are all the same thing.
No, America Is Not Turning Libertarian [More...]
"Advocacy organizations routinely sponsor polls that show the public supportive of their own position. Reason is the only magazine I know of that uses this tactic..."
Yes, the Kochs fund groups out of self-interest [More...]
"Men who make their living emitting carbon pay thinkers to argue against government regulation of carbon."
