Here’s his 2012 paean to the Property and Freedom Society:
The meeting is the annual gathering of the Property and Freedom Society, as founded and headed by the famed radical intellectual Hans-Hermann Hoppe, a man who has become a legend in his own time. He makes his home in Istanbul, but comes here once a year to run this little adventure. His newest book, The Great Fiction, has been published by Laissez Faire Books. The book is on display here and is the talk of the conference.
The PFS has this line in its 2006 declaration:
As culturally conservative libertarians, we are convinced that the process of de-civilization has again reached a crisis point and that it is our moral and intellectual duty to once again undertake a serious effort to rebuild a free, prosperous, and moral society.
There’s also “The Cultural Thought of Ludwig von Mises,” cowritten with Lew Rockwell, which is a great read.
The split Tucker sketches out is nonspecific, as if he’s trying to avoid naming names, between the ones who are nasty and racist and the ones who turn every visit to the convenience store into an encomium to spontaneous order. In fact, the split is this: On the one hand you have the euphoric, liberationist libertarians who equate gender norms with state oppression, encourage things like prostitution and drug use, and aren’t too concerned about the long-term trajectory of society writ large — why worry when we can’t centrally plan it? On the other side are the more conservative ones who see liberty as the space in which civil society flourishes, which must be jealously protected, especially from the left.
In other words, it’s not “brutalists” and “humanists,” it’s libertarians intent on abetting that “process of de-civilization,” through sucking up to the left on a conceptual and political level, and the ones who refuse to.
