Selling Libertarianism

My beautiful blog recieved an honorable mention in the Thorpe-Freeman contest:

Honorable mentions to both Russell Hasan and Shanu Athiparambath. Meanwhile, Athiparambath’s comments regarding “On Selling Classical Liberalism” (Alberto Benegas-Lynch, Jr.) tempers Lynch’s article with the observation that “a great work of literature can have mass appeal even if the reading public disagrees with the underlying philosophy” and illustrates his point with the popularity of Ayn Rand’s works. His statement that “academics tend to believe that there is a conflict between entertainment and respectability” refers to just one of the ways in which intellectual hubris can lead us to underestimate the public’s ability to absorb and understand.
