Hello, I don’t frequent politics on reddit, so I am new here. I am a left leaning libertarian, meaning I support some economic regulation but not regulation of individual freedoms and rights. Most of the people who align with me are socialists, which I don’t particularly ascribe myself to nor is that the point of the post, but a lot of the content I receive from right leaning libertarians comes from very few sources for this reason. And a lot if not most of these right leaning libertarians have a pretty unified anti-critical race theory position. I cannot fathom in the slightest how a person who claims to be a libertarian can be in support of the government regulating what is taught in schools. The University that I attended currently has one of their members of its Board of Regents running for governor, and he has identified himself as a libertarian from one time to another (running as a republican). And he is using not only his position on the Board of Regents but also has promised he would use his position as governor to oppose the teaching of Critical Race Theory. I cannot possibly imagine a more authoritarian position. So if anyone could explain how this is possible, please I am so confused and angry.
