Over at Faith and Heritage, Jan Stadler has published an excellent article on the modern libertarian pantheon of saints, which are listed as: Ludwig von Mises, Friedrich Hayek, Milton Friedman, Murray Rothbard.
In a previous Stadler article it was highlighted how the Libertarians are similar to Marxists.
And in this article Stadler highlights how modern libertarianism reflects a Jewish perspective, which is important because they viewed themselves as outsiders within their society. Put another way, they espoused a cosmopolitan, non-Christian viewpoint.
Libertarian saints such as Mises, Hayek, Rothbard, and their contemporary demigods like Ron Paul, Rand Paul, and Justin Amash need to be suffocated out. Libertarianism’s takeover of the GOP represents the utter end of Christian America on the Right, as it, not socialism, will have effectively displaced Christianity as the prevailing worldview of the Right to stand against socialism. A more preferable alternative would be to have socialism crush libertarianism and then let socialism implode on its own.
Christianity must now stand as the antithesis to the secular thesis that is socialism and libertarianism. It needs to rediscover that it is not in fact a product of the Enlightenment, but the enemy of Enlightenment antitheism. Secularism is and will continue to carve chasms in people’s souls as they seek higher meaning in a world ruled by hedonism and materialism.
It might be positive to take Stadler’s, and related, ideas and rewrite them for a non-Christian audience, for submission to, say, counter-currents website. The reason this is a good idea is the right exists as an “against-us” alliance. Often we mistake the component factions within this alliance as holding similar goals. They do not. And Stadler’s article, rewritten for counter-currents, would strike a blow against the Nietzschean, eugenitic, and classical liberal ideas there. Counter-currents seems, to me, to hold a mix of ideas, and those non-Christians sharing some of Stadler’s values would perhaps be awakened to the differences among the factions.
