Left-leaning libertarians have actually been claiming, if you can believe this, that Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, whose worldview is altogether confused and state-centered, is actually the best libertarian in Congress. She is certainly better, they say, than Thomas Massie. Since this is insane, I decided to smash it.

This isn't the kind of conversation we might have had in the old days, lamenting the lack of difference between the two parties. This time the emergence of a one-party state is taking a different form: the demonization and isolation of dissidents by the Democrats in particular.

We hear from libertarian critics of Ron Paul and Murray Rothbard (yes, such people exist, believe it or not) that they pursued something called "the paleo strategy," which today is ridiculed and dismissed without actually being addressed or refuted. Tho Bishop of the Mises Institute joins me to discuss who the paleos were and, to the extent they had a strategy, what it was. Hint: it did not involve tripping over themselves to adopt whatever crazy cultural demand the left was making on a given day.
