Rudy Giuliani and the Authoritarianism Question:
I very much appreciate John McGinnis's libertarian case for Rudy Giuliani. At the same time, it seems to me that there's a significant objection to Giuliani from a libertarian perspective: Many consider him the most authoritarian of the Republican nominees and the least concerned with the Rule of Law. (To get a flavor of the critiques, consider this video exchange between Megan McArdle and Dan Drezner. For a particularly harsh critique from a left perspective — over the top, in my view, but worth mining for evidence amidst the rhetoric — see here). I'd be very interested in hearing responses to these concerns from libertarianish Giuliani supporters.
