Is there a New Classical Liberal Movement?
Dan Klein forwarded this Politico piece by Phillipe Huguen/Getty. It suggests that there is a new, emerging "classical liberal" (as opposed to "conservative," "libertarian," "progressive," or 1940s "liberal") movement. Classical liberals favor free speech and limited government. Sounds good to me. Huguen/Getty suggests that the classical liberal movement may parallel the conservative movement of the 1950s, which spawned Barry Goldwater's candidacy only a few years after its founding.
