Thoughts on the Neoliberal Project?
How do you self-described libertarians feel about the Neoliberal Project-style liberalism (not necessarily the Neoliberal Project itself, but the ideology it advances). It almost feels like it is increasingly become the torch-bearer for a moderate democrat-libertarian compromise against far-right and far-left politics. And personally, I’ve seen a lot of more “moderate libertarians” attach themselves to it (e.g. some Cato people, economists affiliated with the Mercatus Center, etc).
I get libertarianism itself is diverse, and it might not appeal to the full-on “abolish the Fed, buy gold, Ron Swanson extremist” libertarian, but I’d imagine the movement appeals to more middle-of-the-road libertarians.
And ya, I get that labels are “dumb,” but political marketing does rely on branding whether for the better or worse.
Thoughts? I identify as a center-left democrat, not a libertarian, btw
