Radicals for Capitalism

Reason magazine Senior Editor Brian Doherty discusses his incredible achievement: Radicals for Capitalism: A Freewheeling History of the Modern American Libertarian Movement with Antiwar.com’s Doug Bandow on C-SPAN. A great interview to watch and perhaps even pass around. Doherty’s eloquence in describing libertarian principles as he retells the history of the movement allows for deep explanation in a very accessible way.

Note: The book is not Conservatives Against the Drug War. It is Radicals for Capitalism and that is deliberate. Dig it?

I have met Brian a few times through my dear friend, and his lovely bride, Angela Keaton (and once interviewed him as well), and have always been incredibly impressed. His book, This is Burning Man was a trip and dammit, I’m just in favor of a man who makes sure to work in what a rat-bastard Woodrow Wilson was whenever he gets the chance.

I have Radicals for Capitalism on my desk, but haven’t had the chance to get past chapter 2 yet. It is incredibly engaging, I’m just busy as hell. I promise to have him on the show just as soon as I can.
