Specifically, a Sunday discussion “Objectivism and Libertarianism” by Yaron Brook and Onkar Ghate was at the epicenter from which the attacks occurred.
Hardcore Rothbardian @RyanDGriggs tweeted out some of the hate that was spewed at the conference.
"we can't stand @RonPaul's foreign policy"
"It's very bad what [Murray] Rothbard is putting forth"
Murray rothbard was "trying to be the spokesman for everyone... The spokesman for Mises"
"How do you still deal with the Mises and Hazlitt of the world, and avoid the Rothbards?"
"anarchism is a form of statism"
"anarchism is about the concentration of power in groups"
Objectivists: "government is necessary and good... It's necessary for human life, to flourish"
Must [re-] "consider associating" with "anarchists" who want to "smash the state"
Ted Cruz getting much praise at #OCON2016 setting aside his religious views.
"There's such a string nihilistic bend at the @mises institute" many there are "really evil" so "we don't deal with them".
[Murray Rothbard] "should be avoided like the plague"...he's a" bad guy".. "You should avoid being positive about him in any way"
@RonPaul and his followers described as "sadly... anti-establishment," "emotional," and "not intellectual"
the discussion of Murray Rothbard and @mises was vitriolic. He's a "bad guy" & some at Mises are "really evil"
Pretty bizarre to say that "anarchism is a form of statism." I'm told contradictions galore were made during the discussion. At one point, it was said that Rothbard cheered communists at another that he hated the state.
There was also quite a bit of religion hating, I'm told, especially of Catholics. What does religion have to do with libertarianism? Religions are not the problem, states are. If there is no state, no religion can rule from it. Very confused dudes.
@DanielLMcAdams @WenzelEconomics They're crazy, period. You should read their foreign policy stuff: it's "moral" to kill innocent civilians.— Justin Raimondo (@JustinRaimondo) July 3, 2016
