The NY Times Hates My Guts
by Llewellyn H. Rockwell, Jr.
Wow. I always knew the neocons hated LRC, but now I also know the extent of their fear. From the NY Times on down (or is that on up?), they all want to destroy this website. It’s been the 10-minute hate. And, of course, for pro-war, pro-police state, pro-empire types who exalt the “Noble Lie,” no fib is too fictional.
Why the hate? It’s the rebuke of our massive traffic, up 19.7% in 2011 alone, according to Google. It reaches into every corner of America and the world. This was already the best-read libertarian site ever, and now we’ve taken another giant step (as the Times goes out of business). But the real reason for the fear and hate is our Rothbardian, anarcho-capitalist ideas, and their demonstrated power to change hearts and minds, no matter what fabrications the establishment spreads. LRC is the powerful teacher of freedom, markets, peace, and historical truth. So, of course, the poisoned arrows fly.
