Where Do Libertarians Belong? A Reason Event Featuring Brink Lindsey, Matt Kibbe, and Jonah Goldberg

Should libertarians forge alliances and risk being compromised, or preserve their purity and risk irrelevance? Which political groups are worth rooting for, collaborating with, or just sprinting away from?

On July 12, 2010, Reason hosted a debate on "Where Libertarians Belong" with Cato Institute Vice President Brink Lindsey, FreedomWorks President Matt Kibbe, and Jonah Goldberg of National Review Online and the American Enterprise Institute.

The event was based on Reason's August/September cover forum (click here to subscribe), in which Lindsey argued for the abolition of the historical right-libertarian alliance in "Right Is Wrong," Goldberg warned against the lure of "The Non-Existent Center," and Kibbe defended the Tea Parties in "Drink Your Tea."
