Goldwater Liberals?

Part 3 of Elizabeth Anderson's series on free societies is up. It's a freedom-based defense of private property. The important issue is that she points out that private property is a coersive measure that interfers with formal freedom, but it enhances the formal freedom of those who use it. She analogizes to traffic regulations, which violate formal, non-interference freedom, but which make real freedom on the road - the ability to drive to places you want to go - possible. I discussed this analogy in an earlier post.

Also at Left2Right, Don Herzog reviews a pro-liberty statement of principles from the past that eriely predicts the beliefs of 21st century progressive liberals. "It's the 1964 Republican Party platform. Right, the one Barry Goldwater ran on."
