Ah, Liberty

Roger Pilon, Cato’s chair in constitution studies, is apparently one of that breed of libertarians who believes strongly in unlimited government surveillance powers plus retroactive immunity for lawbreaking telecom firms. Fortunately, we’ve also got this other breed of libertarianism around. Still, it’s a bit hard to take Cato’s claims to be sincerely serving a doctrine of small government when its people stake out this kind of position.
