David Boaz of the Cato Institute has an excellent article about libertarians who long for a golden age of liberty. He tells them to recognize that there as never been such a golden age.

The worst of them proclaim the Confederacy as some bastion of freedom ignoring the fact that millions of people were held as slaves in the South. The South even before the Civil War engaged in censorship of anti-slavery newspapers.

There is one little inter newsletter that proclaims itself a home for old Confederates while also giving support to Holocaust deniers like David Irving. These individuals had published an article attacking Ayn Rand's article on racism. Miss Rand's article holds up very well.
