The tyranny of liberalism?
Not only a deserved rant against left-liberalism, it reads like a trad/palæo indictment of classical liberals, seeming to overlook that in our view freedom has a natural limit, the harm principle (do what you want as long as you don’t harm others; vice is often not crime), and that we’re not egalitarians (as conservatives like palæos, we believe all are equally dear to God but don’t pretend or enforce that all are the same). It doesn’t mean selfishness as many critics of libertarianism think. As much as I like the crunchies I like the liberation made possible by the car and the Internet (of course: as others have noted, you’ve got to love Luddite writings online) and will have fun, fun, fun with them (and not incidentally support myself with them) unless/till the depression takes them away. From Fr Chadwick.
