Objectivist Critiques Of Libertarianism.

While Objectivism is a type of libertarianism, there is a great deal of conflict between the two groups, sometimes resulting in some good criticisms.


For A New Libertarianism.
Paul Coulam finds errors by Ayn Rand, Murray Rothbard and David Friedman in an attempt to patch together a workable libertarianism, with a surprise twist ending!
The Contradiction in Anarchism.
By Robert J. Bidinotto. An excellent critique of the fundamental problems of libertarian anarcho-capitalism and its premises.
On Moral Sanctions.
By Peter Schwartz. A ludicrous rhetorical assault branding libertarianism as "evil" because libertarians don't see how Objectivism is the path to rationality and truth, and recommending shunning them.
