I found this fragment in some undated notes I was making for a blog post. I now have no idea for what context the following remarks were intended, so I thought I’d put them up on their own:
Say is made a disciple of Smith, and Hodgskin a disciple of Ricardo, though each was an independent thinker and quite critical of his supposed mentor. Spencer is dubbed a “Social Darwinist,” despite anticipating Darwin by several years. Bastiat is called a mere populariser, his original contributions overlooked; the individualist anarchists are treated as mere footnotes to Stirner, despite the fact that most of them (even Tucker) formed their views independently of Stirner. Rand is dismissed as a vulgariser of Nietzsche, while Rothbard, in a chronological reversal, has been described as a follower of Nozick.
