Brink Lindsey on “The Libertarian Center”

The July issue of Cato Unbound hits virtual newsstands this morning with Cato VP for research Brink Lindsey’s new essay elaborating his argument in The Age of Abundance: How Prosperity Transformed America’s Politics and Culture that the culture wars are over and a vaguely libertarian consensus is the result. While recognizing that principled libertarianism doesn’t have a significant constituency, Lindsey argues that the soft libertarian synthesis constrains the Democrats and Republicans as they seek to cobble together working political majorities.
