Jeffrey Tucker on the Problems of the Alt-Right 2

Watch Derrick Broze’s interview with Jeffrey Tucker here.

I disagree with Tucker’s treatment of Richard Spencer at the Students for Liberty conference. It should be possible for libertarians, anarchists, left-libertarians and Alt-Rightists to engage in civilized debate and discussion. Tucker also exaggerates the Trumpian threat with the Nazi comparisons. Trump represents a neo-Nixonian threat, not a neo-fascist threat. But some of the potential conflicts between the nationalistic collectivism of the Alt-Right and radical anti-statism, left or right, that Tucker discusses are legitimate.

Watch Tucker’s confrontation with Spencer and Spencer’s response below.

I hope Julie Borowski’s offer to host a debate between Spencer and Tucker materializes. That should be interesting.

  1. There are people who call libertarians fascists, and neither Trump nor Spencer fit any reasonable definition of the term. Tucker should know better.
    Regarding AltRight collectivism, Heimbach and one of his failed libertarian lackeys were recently on the Daily Traditionalist, discussing that one thing the ‘movement’ can’t accept are radical individualists and materialists, which as far as I’m concerned means that their movement can get AIDS and die.
    While I have no interest in fighting some kind of civil war over this gay fake country, I also have pretty much nothing to say to Stormfags, and don’t care what they think or want. Vague political goals that will never actually happen aren’t worth interacting with people I find irritating. Mass society is basically incapable of dealing with collective action problems by any deliberate measure on the part of any individual or organization, so there’s really no point in bothering.

  2. “. It should be possible for libertarians, anarchists, left-libertarians and Alt-Rightists to engage in civilized debate and discussion. ”

    I totally agree. I just don’t see it happening.
