Conor Friedersdorf (The AtlanticMeeting Triumph and Disaster) and Noah Smith (Bloomberg Opinion, Noahpinion)

On Friedersdorf, Noah begins by accusing libertarians of turning a blind eye to the Bush-Obama national security state. Conor argues that supporting the Libertarian Party in a two-party system is not quixotic, even though libertarianism has an image problem.
