There's a thread on Reason
's Hit and Run blog ["Ron Paul’s candidacy is proving the irrelevance of libertarianism"
Matt Welch | January 28, 2008, 5:04pm] criticizing John Derbyshire's VDARE.com, Paradoxically, Ron Paul's Success Proving Irrelevance of Libertarianism,
which seems to have confused many of the Hit and Run commenters.We should probably change the title to "Paradoxically, Ron Paul's Success Proving Irrelevance of Establishment Libertarians."
Â Matt Welch and Reason,
of course, represent whatever establishment libertarianism can be said to have.
