Libertarians and Liberals ... an uncomfortable fit.

TCS Daily - Why Be a Conservative Libertarian?

My point is not that the liberals have no case for an alternative approach. What disturbs me is that they are issuing rhetorical put-downs as a substitute for laying out an alternative and thinking through its consequences. Unfortunately, this is an all-to-typical modus operandi.

The Left's religion often comes dressed up as science. Marxism is one example. The eugenics movement of the early twentieth century is another. The Global Warming crusade is probably another.
I like this article by Arnold Kling ... it lays out some of the challenges libertarians face when trying to find common ground with liberals.
