If the word “hack” has never come out of your lips (or keyboard) in public reference to someone on your own side, you have no right to use it about anyone; for your tolerance or your ideological compatriots, and more often, your approbation for their less-hackish work, has made their guilt yours.
Unfortunately, Jane’s challenge is a bit too challenging. I’m said to be blunt, but even I don’t want to make up a list of libertarian hacks. Let me therefore propose a substitute challenge: Name some (living) non-hacks – thinkers you deeply respect – who deeply disagree with you.
I’ll go first. I nominate Bill Dickens.
