Proving Peter Schwartz Right

Apparently, the only arguments for libertarianism that Susan Lee recognizes are the subjectivist variety. According to her, “libertarians are not comfortable with normative questions” and “libertarian thought promotes relativism and inclusiveness” due to “indifference to moral questions.” Even worse, in the closing paragraphs she claims that “libertarian thought is … a postmodern attitude.”

Such “friends” of liberty are no friends at all. Moral relativism is incoherent in its own right — and an illusory foundation for libertarianism. After all, if we can’t say anything useful about morality, then why is initiating force wrong?

I’m almost motived to write a letter to the editor, but work for Camp Indecon is more pressing right now.
