We're repeatedly impressed with the folks over at Lew Rockwell. For a libertarian site, they publish a lot of insightful and intelligent stuff. Libertarian ideas have always appealed to us, but the amorality of their ideas always kept us at a distance (think Jesse "the No Brain" Ventura, and you'll know what we're talking about). The more we see of this leading light of libertarian thought and his site, however, the more we suspect that we misunderstand their supposed amorality.

Today, they have posted a vigorous defense by Thomas DiLorenzo of Thomas E. Woods (author of The Politically Incorrect Guide to American History) and a relatively-unknown organization known as The League of the South. The defense is vigorous because it employs the old adage, "The best defense is a good offense." Here, the neo-cons are attacked. It's a good read if you're interested in (i) the differences among "conservative" ideas, (ii) contemporary thought, and (iii) the South. LINK.

Side note: The most recent issue of Gilbert Magazine contains an extensive and enjoyable interview with the Chestertonian and League of the South member, Art Livingston.
