Christopher Sheil, the blogger about whom one dare not speak the name “left”, posts an extract from a new book by animal lib Oz philosopher Peter Singer, which deconstructs/demolishes the libertarian justification of inalienable rights to private property. Of course, there are lots of equally cogent critiques of libertarianism elsewhere on the web e.g. this article on libertarian guru Robert Nozick at the Encyclopedia of Philosophy site.
CS has clearly thrown down the gauntlet to libertarian bloggers and commenters. Who will take up the challenge? John Humphreys or one of the others at Australian Libertarians blog? Jason Soon? Sam “Yobbo” Ward? Singer’s arguments are pretty persuasive IMO. But maybe not unanswerable.
