"No one owns the word, and if one enjoys identifying herself as a libertarian, then — in this writer’s view — that is reason enough to identify as such.

We may, however, wonder whether right wing libertarians, conservatarians, and the like are aware of the word’s historical association with the utmost extremes of the political left, specifically socialism. Would it matter to them that, during the 19th century, libertarians, the people who favored the maximization of human liberty, were ardently anti-capitalist?

It is paradoxical, perhaps, that the group identified by virtually all mainstream commentary as sitting on the extreme right of the political spectrum, libertarians, has embraced a favorite label of the extreme left."
