We had a brief discussion about libertarianism in class yesterday as part of our discussion of ethical egoism. I thought some of my students would find this article of interest. It's from New York Magazine and it's entitled "The Trouble With Liberty." There are a number of other fantastic resources on the web (both in support of and against) libertarianism. Probably the most philosophically rigorous is the entry on the topic in the Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy.
