But based on what you think he said you think he's accurate. Hence the concession of defeat?

Well, look, if you think he said that Hayek and Friedman loved dictators because they were the only means by which their hated economic policies could ever be forced upon uncomprehending and exploited populations, I don’t think any more reading is going to help you.

If you read what I read, which was a more nuanced statement about the complicated relationship between democracy, liberty and liberalism, then this is not unique to Hayek, it’s a general and central concern of liberal thought (Tocqueville’s books on America are largely about this). That probably is too boring for you to read about, but not for everybody.

Therefore, I thought what he wrote was a bit more considered and accurate than his statements in the other thread, and as I am not actually an unbridled cheerleader for neoliberal economics, I didn’t see the point in extending the argument further. Also, arguments ruin my day, I get bummed out by them.
 
Wow! This is the most humiliating and absolute complete destruction of Craner ever witnessed. Absolute annihilation but without any tang of sadism.

I Cant believe vim just scurried away and left Craner to get eviscerated like that. No honour amongst thieves

I dont think a problem with democracy is something unique to neoliberals, it's an issue in general for liberalism

you could say the same, for that matter, for freedoms in general - freedom doesnt necessarily include the freedom to be illiberal

I can't post pictures any more. When I touch the picture icon nothing happens. It's broken because my browser is old I guess.
