07/14/2005 Archived Entry: "A New Libertarian Paradigm for Freedom"
WHEN BEN IRVIN SENT THIS DOCUMENT (pdf format) yesterday, I admit my first reaction was, "Uh ... that's pretty off the wall." And it is.
Thesis: After over thirty years of failing to start a revolution through persuasion, it is time for libertarians to reproduce themselves the way successful cultures and groups do: by generating a large number of children, either naturally, by adoption or ideally, by both.
Yet a genuinely new paradigm (which is what Irvin and his co-author Greg Garber call their proposal) always sounds off the wall. And they make an intriguing case. So ... take a look and consider.
