If all I knew about it were what is contained in this attempted defense, it would have no appeal for me. Susan Lee writes, “To libertarians. . . the model of a free market functions as a template for all things. . . . Libertarians are not comfortable with normative questions. . . . Libertarian thought promotes relativism and inclusiveness.” Toward the end of her piece, Lee claims that “libertarian thought, with its fluid cultural matrix, offers a better response [than conservative thought] to some of the knottiest problems of society.” You’d think she’d try to fill in the argument for that proposition. But she doesn’t.
