Frank van Dun, in his article “Against Libertarian Legalism,” criticizes prior articles by N. Stephan Kinsella and me. Although his article constitutes, in part, a radical if not blistering attack on my prior article, at least it has the merit of fully understanding that which it criticizes. All too often, negative appraisals of libertarianism address themselves to straw men. Say what you will about Van Dun’s article —and I will have many critical things to say about it—it cannot be fairly asserted that he does not comprehend his target.
