Another of libertarianism's petty failures to be consistent is that any ideology that claims to be devoted to liberty should be filled with heterodox members and teeming with interesting pockets of internal dissent; in reality, there is no ideology, on God's green earth, that is more uniform, resistant to internal criticism, and mind-numbingly boring than libertarianism
I know what you mean about the sterility of the libertarian enterprise. You'd think a bunch of anarchists would be more colorful. That's they're not is pretty much the result of Koch money. How many libertarians have been on bloggingheads? What percentage weren't Kochists? Were there any at all? No wonder they all sound the same.
