Is Libertarianism Still Relevant or DEAD?

This clip with Michael Lind lays out what the major parties are about nowadays pretty well. The mainstream Democrats are the new Rockefeller Republicans. The academic left is their left flank, and the Republicans are becoming more like the old-style protectionist Democrats. Although at one point in this clip, Lind hilariously confused Fred Dutton with Fred Hampton. He also confuses libertarianism with neoliberalism.
