In “The Man Behind the Wall Street Journal,” Richard Tofel says that Richard Kilgore “drew his own perspective from the Journal’s editorial page, which soon became, and has remained, the leading voice of mainstream libertarian thinking in the nation.”
I should probably leave it at that, but succinctness has never been one of my personal characteristics. So let me say that on economics, the Wall Street Journal editorial page is not all bad. Indeed, quite a bit of it is informative, and much of what it is publishes is compatible with libertarianism. But, when it comes to foreign policy, the “War” Street Journal is about as far removed from the libertarian axiom of non aggression, non invasion, as it is possible to be.
