The Libertarian Generation?

The American Conservative‘s Daniel McCarthy currently has a post up on his Tory Anarchist blog entitled “Generation Rothbard,” a piece in which he discusses the appeal of libertarian thinkers (like Murray Rothbard) to the young generation.  This sort of principled stand for liberty is proving itself appealing to liberal and non-liberal young people alike, while the “anti-imperial Right” — the old right in the style of Robert Taft and Barry Goldwater — is growing among youth at the expense of neoconservatism. 

The reports McCarthy is getting from various college campuses are hardly a scientific poll, of course, but they at least sound indicative of a change in the winds. 

Help keep the change going:  join YAL and start a chapter at your school!
