POLITICAL ECONOMY, SUMMARIZED.

D. N. McCloskey, in Reason.  "In truth, libertarians sit nowhere on the left-right map, which merely captures a dispute about how to use the government's monopoly of violence. The right wants to use violence to support 800 U.S. bases abroad. The left wants to use it to boss poor people around. Libertarians want neither."

Libertarians understand emergence.  The political left and political right think they can manage it.  The balance of the article elaborates.
