Abstract

Wexler’s vision of libertarianism is a hellish one indeed. Were it a correct rendition of this philosophy, I would join with him in not embracing it either. Perhaps he has attained his interpretation from reading only my article on blackmail and from no other source. In my own defense, I was there concerned not with articulating libertarianism, but merely with applying it to the issue of blackmail. Let us clear up a few of his misconceptions, and perhaps thereby assure him that this perspective is not a diabolical one.
