In case you missed Leon Louw's rant on this in Business Day, here's my response to him (with Louw's op-ed linked at the top).

Thanks, good article, Jacques.

Leon Louw seems to have an affinity for fringe medicine.  IIRC, he, along with much of the then-Libertarian Party, was quite the supporter of Thabo Mbeki’s AIDS denialism.  Their hero was none other than Peter Duesberg.

I have strong libertarian sentiments myself, but it is a source of endless frustration to me that the libertarian movement seems to be a veritable magnet for all manner of fringe nuttery.

Off topic, I think libertarian has become the catch all, for a bunch of crazy.
But I think it would be interesting if see if the free state project it takes proper hold to see what happens.

Jip,

Louw tells the world there is no AIDS pandemic, climate change is mythology and no rhino species are endangered.  Big woo monger.

Some aspects of libertarian views, as associated with woodom, were aired in this thread, starting at Reply #9.
