From the April 7, 2014 article, “Once, Twice, Three Times…Redux” by Bionic Mosquito at LewRockwell.com, a regular reader notes:

American libertarians like you have LRC in such high [e]steem, for good (past) reason, that you have difficulty to perceive the clearly unprincipled, biased stance of LRC on several matters.

…the last 3-4 years of LRC, for me, are marked by deep disappointment, mainly beca[u]se LRC’s proclaimed anti-state stance is subordinate to anti-US imperialism stance.

In sum, the anti-state principle is not systematically and impartially applied at LRC. It is subordinate to anti-US imperialism.

The irony is that Lew Rockwell entered into a voluntary agreement with the very same United States government that he regularly bashes and expects his readers to actually take that seriously.

I am glad to see LewRockwell.com’s obvious contradictions and tired, old rhetoric come under increasing scrutiny by others besides myself.

Despite that, some anarcho-capitalist recently commented on my post, Lew Rockwell tones down his anarcho-capitalist rhetoric in favour of more relevant and popular articles, and left in a huff when he tried to make it seem as if the two points I raised in the discussion had no real basis.

Once a haven of pure anarcho-capitalist rhetoric, LewRockwell.com has had to tone it down as of April 2014, in order to publish articles that people actually care about now that Ron Paul’s 2012 presidential campaign is long over.

Where he once had 11-12 articles a day of the same tired, old anti-government rhetoric, he has recently had 4-7 articles a day on things that are more relevant to people than what Murray Rothbard or the same usual suspect anarcho-capitalist Mises Institute devotees have to say about events, past and present.

Here are those articles, starting on Tuesday, April 1, 2014:
