Great post over on Samizdata.net about the highjacking of "libertarian". The thing that most strikes me about any conversation about libertarianism is that it invariably devolves into a semantics rant. This one doesn't pretend to be anything different from the outset.

BTW, added Samizdata.net to the blogroll over to the right - felt that pure libertarianism was poorly represented in a dual heading category.
