It's A War! Libertarians v. Conservatives


The right renews its '01 debate

The sibling rivalry between libertarians and conservatives added another chapter last week in a debate sponsored by America's Future Foundation. Jonah Goldberg of National Review and Nick Gillespie of Reason magazine renewed a five-year-old debate that had since become somewhat legendary. The 2001 debate pitted Mr. Goldberg against former Reason magazine columnist Mike Lynch over whether libertarians should be considered part of the conservative right. AFF decided to revisit the topic as part of its 10th anniversary celebration, with Mr. Goldberg again defending the conservative movement, and Mr. Gillespie speaking for the libertarian cause at the Heritage Foundation July 18.

'Tis the battle for the soul of the Right. And the Left is winning.
