Continuing the ongoing Politics 101 seminar that is Craigorian Chant, here is MICHAEL KINSLEY with a primer on Libertarians and where they fit into the larger conceptual picture. I do differ with his conclusion that Libertarians are the future. Politics is fundamentally about problems and government's answer to those problems. Any movement who's basic approach is "there are problems and they best thing to do is nothing." will have trouble getting anywhere in this problem filled world of ours. Smart loners are not the future.
