Mark Tully (whose site I recently found) has an interesting series of posts, which I’ll let him describe:
Liberalism teaches that there are two political poles, authority and anarchy. You exchange less authority for more anarchy, less anarchy for more authority, and partisans tend to either favor a strong state or a strong people.
This is part of a larger project to demonstrate how most "authoritarian" systems were in fact anarchist systems. This attacks the so-called "liberty" of the libertarians first.
In the first post, which I just linked to, he takes on Hayek from the right. In his telling, Hayek is an unabashed progressive:
But nowhere does Dr. Hayek question the belief in progress itself, which leaves open a very large hole in his philosophy: what do we do when we achieve capitalistic freedom? Progress doesn’t stop. As he writes in another work, The Constitution of Liberty, "civilization is progress and progress is civilization" and we should bear in mind that "Progress is movement for movement’s sake."
. . .
Dr. Hayek’s philosophy is incompatible with the existence of sovereign political entities. A United Nations or a League of Nations, or at the very least, a mutually assured international order is needed to ensure free trade. He writes, "we cannot hope for order or lasting peace after this war if states, large or small, regain unfettered sovereignty in the economic sphere."
The fascinating part of the argument is that – according to the argument – Hayek’s progressivism is anarchic and tyrannical.
The second post takes on Mises. Mises, per the argument, is a materialist:
When the teachings of economics are applied, it’s called liberal policy. When that liberal policy is realized, it results in material well being via technological development. That is called progress. . . . For Dr. Mises, actions are admirable when they serve an economic motive and arguments are persuasive when they are rooted in economic reasoning.
I think Mr Tully is too hard on the liberals, but I’ve also stopped reading Mises and Hayek for advice on how to govern. Their theories have their limits. There is nobody better than Mises at telling us how to achieve maximum economic efficiency. On one hand, this is quite an accomplishment. On the other hand, it is not a recipe for perfect governance of imperfect men.
