Why I’m sick of this scene (and why this blog may not be long for this world)
May 1, 2008
Justin has a new item attacking the scamps over at Reason for being such holier-than-thou jackasses about the astounding early success of Ron Paul’s new manifesto. I, incidentally, can personally testify to having been in line at Borders on Wall Street where over 1000 showed up for only 500 books available for signing.
As I’ve said before, I have no love lost whatsoever for the cosmotarians (even though I’m persently seeing one with some crazy race obsessions, but that’s another story), but that doesn’t mean there isn’t more than a grain of truth to their brief on the newsletter controversy. Indeed, if Justin insists that Lew Rockwell was not the author, that seems to confirm what I personally know to be the belief of his collaborator Eric Garris, that it was Rothbard himself.
My sympathy, of course, is with my dear and heroic friends at Antiwar.com, but I simply do not have the time, patience, or interest in taking sides in the libertarian version of the split in the Socialist Party in the 30s. Little wonder I suddenly want to go into business.
