I was recently reminded (as if I needed any reminding) that libertarians are — and are likely to remain — politically homeless.

the United States is for the moment left with two authoritarian populist parties and no political home for classical liberalism at all.

Nothing new for me. And (if I may paraphrase a classic) I won’t dominate the rap, Jack, ’cause I’ve got nothing new to say.

The problem is as old as this blog.

MORE: From this analysis of a recent “National Conservatism Conference”:

Anti-individualism seems to be the unifying theory of the ascendant political right. If government infringements on personal liberty are the price of achieving good outcomes, conservatives are more than happy to pay it.

For what it’s worth (obviously not much), I’m glad not to be a conservative.
