No Room in the Tent

Adding to the Libertarian tent in Scott Lazarowitz’s excellent LRC piece   and “… because the “libertarianism” argument seems to be such a hot-button issue at this time, I instead want to add my two-cents worth on that issue.”…. I’ll see those two cents and raise ya two! Among the many worthy statements made, this paragraph crystallizes the essential element missing from the “Me,Too”-ism currently buzzing around all around Libertarianism-ville.

What's going on here?

Can't remember the first time I interviewed Paul Craig Roberts; best guess circa 1993 on WWRC/DC when he was with the Cato Institute. While imprecise on the date, my memory of the conversation is clear: difficult. Very smart guys who have an inkling they're very smart can be very difficult to interview when you are not a regular resident of their intellectual stratosphere.
