The events of Charlottesville still have the people of the United States shaken, even though it has been a while since the event. People of every political ideology still don’t know what to make of it, and especially among these people are the lovers of liberty. Many libertarians have fallen to the Alt-Right in recent days, and notably among them is Christopher Cantwell, who was arrested after the events in Charlottesville.
The fact that both Libertarians are turning into white nationalists and that this is inspiring other Libertarians to change their ways is leaving the members of the liberty movement lost as to where to stand or if to move their position on these issues. Then came along Jeffrey Tucker, who, among many things, is a writer for the Foundation for Economic Education. He wrote an article yesterday titled “An Aesthetic of Liberty” that was a condemnation of Libertarian Brutalism in the best way it could be.
In the article, which can be found here, he provides an outline for the direction Libertarians should move in. It eloquently calls out “Libertarians” who are full of hatred and bigotry, it makes an expert distinction between the public and private sector, and most importantly it made a 5 part “aesthetic” that Libertarians should take up to combat hatred and authoritarianism, on both the left and the right.
