Libertarian Samizdata has this post about Cécile Philippe, director of the newly formed Molinari Institute, a “free market think-tank”. Lib Samiz goes on to say that she is ” both a fearless and uncompromising libertarian activist, and a thoroughly charming and civilised person, two things which don’t always go together. ” That is delicately put. Too many libertarians have a bucket of good ideas, zeal and energy — but such a dearth of social skills that they couldn’t sell a sandwich to a starving man. A wave of groovy French women pushing this sort of good idea will be way more effective. As Lib Samiz notes, that would be formidable indeed.
