I really hate to slap down Fred Clark, the author of slacktivist, because I enjoy his writing, especially his thoughts on Christianity, so much. But he seems highly susceptible to that strange malady that makes people immediately shut down their critical thinking and research skills and retreat into a sort of cowering horror when the come into contact, however indirectly, with libertarianism. Here he is making two errors in one statement about Rand Paul.
Rand Paul…is a disciple of his libertarian namesake, Ayn Rand
Come on, Fred. You’re too smart to fall into such an anti-intellectual trap.
