ミルトンフリードマンへのReasonインタビュー2

Reason: Would you agree with the proposition that you have been the most successful and important proselytizer for libertarianism?



Friedman: I don\'t think that I\'ve had the most influence. I think the most influential person was Hayek. The effect of The Road to Serfdom was really critical. In another area, Bill Buckley has certainly been very important on national policy.



Buckley\'s not a libertarian. But he\'s also not a socialist. And if you look at the political scene, his National Review has had a tremendous influence in providing a base for collaboration between the libertarians on the one side and the freemarket conservatives on the other. That was epitomized in its most obvious form by Frank Meyer when he was with National Review. They\'ve helped that coalition to form and hold together and have influence; Bill Buckley played an enormously important role.



I might have more public influence than ideologues like Rand or Murray Rothbard, the libertarians in that strict sense. And I believe that the reason is because they have been so intolerant.
