You mentioned the Great Barrington Declaration. If I remember it right, it was directly linked with free market libertarians.
Free market libertarians have a different value system than governments and corporations.
Corporations will cooperate with free market libertarians for their own aims, but corporations are creations of the state and can’t exist without government.
My own values WOULD be closer to free market libertarianism except most free market libertarians are actually corporate, demanding strong border patrols, strong police protections against people moving in and out of state (not part of the state or corporate model).
and… this new strange strand of free market libertarianism that I haven’t fully wrapped my brain around is rather barbaric, a “kill off the weak” and lets be sure the weak are the people we prefer not to have in our future society.
It’s all very strange to me.
Power is always dangerous. Accidents happen.
That doesn’t mean power is bad. But it’s never safe.
One of my favorites is a weird undertaker who is a media hog in a small English village.
He’s known to the people around there as a local oddball. Fine undertaker but always has had odd ideas through the years.
Now with internet and an willing audience, he’s made a number of videos claiming to know what people REALLY died from in his area. I don’t have it handy but it’s made the rounds.
