From LRC
  • Unlimited military detention of Americans. You read that right.
  • Fascism. Thinking of my Occupy moment in which a young man yelled to me that Ron Paul’s a fascist. Individual liberty and the do-no-harm rule ≠ collectivism of any kind (identity politics; affirmative action/quotas/spoils; blood and soil/‘white power’; scapegoating), lots of war spending and de facto government control over business. Just like a fundamentalist is something specific in Protestantism, not just a conservative Christian who won’t buy into your agenda, fascism isn’t necessarily social conservatism/political incorrectness you don’t like. There are right-libertarians and left-libertarians.
