Fascism's Legacy: Liberalism

How often does Pipes denounce the Patriot Acts, the Military Commissions Act, the Real ID Act, the Defense Authorization Act, the Violent Radicalization and Homegrown Terrorism Prevention Act, the Martial Law Act? Ever? Anyway, about as often as ARI, which is never.

Thanks for pointing this out. Pipes, Goldberg, and their fellow travelers are the ultimate "big government conservatives". They are living evidence of the absurdity of the idea that conservativism as it has long been defined stands for limited government and invididual rights. They are so concerned with limited government and individual rights that they forgot to protest against any of the above pieces of legislation. As a result of this cumulative legislation, the US is one terrorist attack away from the imposition of marshal law.

The organized objectivist movement, both ARI and TAS, have also somehow forgotten to discuss any of this. ARI is too busy advocating the nuking of Iran. TAS is too busy writing about the evils of Ron Paul. And so the march toward totalitarianism continues, with not even a protest from the liberty loving organized objectivist movement.

... “It’s been almost fifty years since the NR review of Atlas.”

National Review reprinted Whittaker Chambers’ stupid (stupid, stupid) review January 5, 2005 in celebration of the magazine’s 50th anniversary. “Celebration” is the word they used.

Your point is well taken. If they continue to be proud of the review it can be used against them.
