The Laboratorium : Cato Versus Caesar -
"The irony here is that the nation's preeminent libertarians--who ought to be exquisitely attentive to freedom of contract, institutional design, and observing the letter of the law--couldn't get their rights right." - Andrew C (✔) from Bookmarklet
"They built this Streeling of libertarian thought, with its $20+ million annual budget and world-wide reputation, on a shareholding structure that is either actually or nearly under the control of people who do not share many of their values and have not for decades. The entire enterprise may well have been for years only one death away from Koch domination. If so many libertarians are now so worried about a Koch takeover, one has to ask, why have they spent so many years building a brand with an unshielded thermal exhaust port?" - Andrew C (✔)
"I could not tell you how many times I've encountered libertarian arguments about law that assume that individuals can and ought to use contracts to protect themselves against just this sort of contingency. [...] Except they don't. They never do. And really. If the uber-libertarians of the Cato institute can't watch out for themselves, what hope is there for the rest of us?" - Andrew C (✔)
