In general, you could say I’m pretty deeply disheartened by the level of political discourse on the NYU campus, what with the loudest voice on the left being Take Back NYU! and the loudest voice on the right being the Ann Coulter/Michelle Malkin-loving College Republicans. But I do enjoy grappling with the libertarians because, Ayn Rand citations aside, a lot of them are actually pretty informed and thoughtful. Plus, unlike either of the aforementioned parties, they appreciate good-faith debate.
Which is why I decided to needle them a little bit with this post; I knew we’d get some pretty good discussion out of it in the comments. And so far, I think we have.
