The Intellectual Activist (Vol. 3, Nos. 19 and 20) [PDF]

By Peter Schwartz


Vol. 3, Nos. 19 and 20, contains the following:

“Libertarianism: The Perversion of Liberty, parts 1 and 2”: A penetrating exposé of Libertarianism. The philosophical vacuum that makes Libertarianism anti-liberty. The impossibility of defending—or even defining—freedom without a system of ethics. Libertarianism’s rejection of the need to validate liberty, and its repudiation of values and morality as such. The basic ideological similarities between Libertarianism and the New Left. Why Libertarians support the PLO, condemn America as “imperialistic” and view Russia as having a “peaceful” foreign policy. This issue also contains short notes.
