Wow.  I’m gob-smacked.

I don’t think there is a hope in hell this could ever have occurred without Jeff Bezos buying the Washington Post.

What this means in the real world is that overnight a center-right view of legal matters is going to be front and center every morning with the legislators who write those laws.  This is an immense increase in reach, power, and influence for our views. 

In D.C., the general view is that if it isn’t in the Post or NYT, then it didn’t happen, or it doesn’t exist.  But now the views of the Volokh Gang, in all their more or less libertarian glory, will be front and center on the breakfast tables of power.

Bravo.  I looke forward to Harry Reid being slapped in the face with the views of Randy Barnett on a daily basis.

About Bill Quick

I am a small-l libertarian. My primary concern is to increase individual liberty as much as possible in the face of statist efforts to restrict it from both the right and the left. If I had to sum up my beliefs as concisely as possible, I would say, "Stay out of my wallet and my bedroom," "your liberty stops at my nose," and "don't tread on me." I will believe that things are taking a turn for the better in America when married gays are able to, and do, maintain large arsenals of automatic weapons, and tax collectors are, and do, not.
