Art of the Possible
The Bush administration has been extreme enough in its authoritarianism, flagrant law breaking, and flouting of basic human rights norms, to cause fractures in the old GOP coalition. There is now the possibility of new political alliances forming. Speaking broadly, it may be that many of the factions in the Democratic Party, and some of the factions that call themselves “libertarian,” collectively represent a kind of loose anti-authoritarian coalition, or rather, the possibility of one. This site aims to facilitate conversation among those factions.
If you have fond memories of Rothbard's attempted coalition with the New Left, or are currently involved in the Alliance of the Libertarian Left, it's probably a topic to warm your heart.
I'm a long-time reader of two of the writers there: Mona, who blogs with Jim Henley at Unqualified Offerings, and Angelica Oung of Battlepanda. One of my earliest contacts with Angelica was this post of hers: "Two Flavors of Libertarianism." If you look at the comments under that post, most of the left-libertarian blogosphere popped in before the discussion petered out.
I posted my introduction today and should be starting in with substantive posts next week.
Check it out.
