244. You're seeing things in my post which are not there
Very centered. You reject conspiracy theories and so, ergo, it follows that nothing is ever done in a conspiratorial fashion. You think the dialectic could be alright in the abstract, but you don't really agree with it, so it follows that there is always some flaw with anyone trying to apply it. You know that political philosophies must have a historical development through fluid process of debate -- certainly not plucked from thin air -- so even when some things demonstrably are made up on the spot, you're ready to prove they aren't.

But, there is a slight problem in connecting the dots here. Did Burke influence Hayek, Popper, and others? Is that really in question or would you just like it to be since its such a ready-made "flaw" you can jump on. The truth is that your laissez faire crap was magically resuscitated by Hayek, Friedman, von Mises, etc and this article is the story of how.


1. I never said that nothing is ever done in a conspiratorial fashion.
2. You don't really know my opinions on dialectics
3. The OP failed to show that libertarianism was "made up on the spot." The OP ignored a tremendous amount of history whilst putting together his thesis.
4. WTF, are you calling "my "laissez faire crap"
5. To say that something was "magically resuscitated" illustrates how simplistic your argument is.
