George Smith and David Friedman on defending libertarianism.
From the Bleeding Heart Libertarian blog comes this video of a 1981 debate between George Smith and David Friedman on the role of ethical and economic arguments in defending libertarianism.
In this video from a 1981 Libertarian Party of Texas event, Smith and Friedman have a debate over whether economics or ethics--whether natural rights or rule utilitarianism--forms a better basis for libertarian ideas.
