I don’t know what you mean by the “everyone” remark.
The left/libertarians loved the libertarian court though, famed libertarian Noam Chomsky probably did as well.

I dont know what you mean by the everyone remark.
It is simple.
You said, "Yes, everyone says his (Warren) was the greatest libertarian court." Since I disagree, I am no longer included in the term "everyone." Which is cool.
"The left/libertarians loved the libertarian court though, famed libertarian Noam Chomsky probably did as well.
When you say stuff like this I wonder if I am being punked. Chomsky has come up with stuff to describe what it is he thinks and has come up with terms like "libertarian socialist" which in my opinion sounds like "tall midget."
As long as we are talking about Supreme Court decisions, we could discuss Chomsky's reaction to Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission (2010)
, which Chomsky opposed, calling it a corporate takeover of U.S. Democracy
. A libertarian would respond as Congressman Paul did on the recent Tonight Show interview
, where he agreed with the decision, because companies and groups like SuperPACs are essentially people who have a right to free speech, and that if government can restrict that, then they could also restrict the media, etc.
In addition, a libertarian would say that the reason why such money is going into politics in the first place is because the federal government has become a bloated spigot from which companies and others work to become well connected so they can get rich of the backs of little people like us. Turn off the spigot, shrink the bloated thing, and the money getting thrown into campaigns gets put into more productive areas. As long as this country has more Orren Boyles than it has Henry Reardens, this country is in trouble.
I sure hope you are getting something out of this discussion. Or perhaps, do you want to explain in great detail for me next time how Stalin was a libertarian? Or perhaps Alexander Hamilton? or Thomas Hobbes or Niccolò di Bernardo dei Machiavelli??
