In this Freeman piece today, Doug Bandow says that, despite the manifest disasters and waste brought about by big government, the libertarian moment has not arrived. His argument is that the “moment” will never “arrive” but must be fought for in the realm of public opinion, persuading more and more people that the state is not their friend, but (for most) exploits them for the benefit of the politically connected few. It will be difficult to overcome the heavy propaganda investment that the statists have made in thought control.
