Can a libertarian be a conservative? Answer this question and win £1000. (CHT Joel Schlosberg.)
Although Im quoted in the announcement in apparent support of the no side, I actually think the answer to the question is yes. Of course its a yes, but … (in that I take libertarianism to be thickly bound up with lefty values even if it doesnt strictly entail them and I could sign on to statements such as the libertarian rejects conservatism in the same spirit as I would such Thompson-style categoricals as the tufted warbler flies south in the winter even if many actual tufted warblers, owing to disorientation and bewilderment, never get airborne), but I reckon the contest judges will accept yes, but … answers.
