The primary disagreement that I have with orthodox, American-style libertarians is their deification of characters like Bezos, Musk, Gates, Sam Walton, etc as idealized Nietzschean supermen. This is a recurring theme I have seen among Randians (the worst), Catoite neoliberals, and Rockwellian paleos alike. These characters are simply the Henry Fords, John D. Rockefellers, Andrew Carnegies, etc of the present time (and, yes, I know a lot of libertarians idealize the robber barons of the Gilded Age as well). But, in reality, these guys are simply the royalty and aristocracy of modernity, the neo-Medicis. Fortunately, there are an-caps like James Corbett who will call this stuff out.
