Fox Business Network‘s John Stossel has done a sublime job in the mainstream media of articulating many libertarian issues and principles. Although Stossel disappointed many when it came to surveillance, he has done more than anyone else in the media to bring libertarianism to the forefront of the issues.
During a segment on his show, Stossel put forth the question: the rise of libertarianism? He interviewed Reason’s Nick Gillespie and Matt Welch to talk about how this is the “libertarian era.” With the growth of government, 100 million Americans receiving some sort of assistance from the government and constant wars, the statement that the United States is in a “libertarian era” is quite optimistic.
Nevertheless, it is an interesting video.
