Mere Libertarianism

"In comparison to such contemporary, 'progressive' Christians as Jim Wallis, Tony Campolo, Ronald Sider, and Brian McLaren, who clamor for the foolish and disastrous notion of achieving 'social justice' through gigantic government powers..., was Lewis just ignorant or naive about modern realities, or was he aiming at a deeper and more significant purpose?" asks David J. Theroux — C. S. Lewis on Mere Liberty and the Evils of Statism.

I dunno.

I think he's more of a paleo-conservative than a libertarian.

I'd agree. There is some healthy cross-pollenization among paleoconservatives and paleolibertarians (as opposed to lifestyle libertarians).
