vcczar Posted January 5, 2022 Share Posted January 5, 2022 What Would Be Your Definition of a Libertarian Progressive? One definition might be the supposed Left Libertarianism of Noam Chomsky and Gore Vidal, but the libertarian aspect seems to mostly be in regards to non-intervention and opposition to things like the Patriot Act. Chomsky and Vidal (when Vidal was alive), seem to otherwise embrace progressive domestic policies. They both championed Dennis Kucinich, who was and is pretty much a hybrid of Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren. I should say that Sanders also opposes war and the Patriot Act; yet, Sander isn't considered a LW Libertarian. Going back to 1912, the Progressive fight between La Follette and Roosevelt could be one of Libertarian Progressivism vs National Progressivism. I think ideally, I'm something of a Libertarian Progressive, if you remember by advocacy for what I call an "Exception Clause" and "Opt-Out Clause." Anyway, if a Libertarian Progressive was said to exist, what do you think that might be in its purest form? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
