Peter St. Onge on libertarianism and in-group/out-group politics

“Paul Rubin’s Darwinian Politics posits that genetic dispositions make lefties fight in-group domination (i.e. equality), while righties fight out-group domination (i.e. “making America strong”). Libertarians, I would argue, think that freedom counters both types of domination — free markets are the best way to help the weak within society, and free-markets plus pacifism makes us both rich enough to deter potential enemies, and peaceful enough to not have many enemies in the first place. Hence libertarianism’s potential appeal to both left and right.” - Peter St. Onge
