thanks for this presentation. I learned a lot.
Great presentation, thank you.
I wish you wouldn't screw up the terminology even more than it is by using the concept 'left libertarianism' in the way you do here. There's a long tradition of left libertarianism in Europe, arising within a decade of the french revolution from egalitarian (left) anarchism, and firmly on the far left (les libertaires). as libertarian socialists, its proponents had to reintroduce the qualifier 'left' to distinguish themselves from american (right) libertarianism after the capture in US of the label 'libertarian' in the 1940s. left libertarians are socialist, not some weird twist of Hayek's horror of markets for all and every circumstance.
It seems crazy to me that I was ever attracted to these ideas and intellectuals, but they can be very eloquent, charming, and persuasive.
Very interesting presentation. People (in general) have a problem with defining any problem except in terms of good/bad, right/wrong, left/right, capitalist/socialist etc.. Brexit and Trump have convinced quite a few people, in my experience, that it will actually help reduce globalization, that it's a move away from capitalism, that it will be better for the ecosystem(!). Most people have no idea: there are liberal neoliberals, and there are right-wing neoliberals. Most people think that if Brexit is bad, the EU must be good. Or if the EU represents neoliberalist globalism, then Brexit must be a step in the right direction.They're just warring families with different ideas of how to protect the mythical "free market".
