Defending Dictators

I attack - yes attack - the left quite a bit for their legacy of supporting and being sympathetic to dictators and murderous ideologies. The assault on my part, I feel, is justified. History is history and the left can't whitewash this fact. The list of elites, intellectuals, politicians artists and celebrities supporting and gushing over the likes of Stalin, Lenin, Mao and Castro is quite impressive.

That being said, libertarians and conservatives are not without their own skeletons when it comes to acting as apologists for dictators. Nowhere near as offensive as what we see with progressives and liberals but worth noting particularly when it comes to Pinocchet.

And so it was with Hayek. Someone held in high regard in libertarian and classical liberal circles.
