No, it's called "nonsense."

This has absolutely nothing to do with "leftism," and everything to do with "statism," because, as I see it, conservative governments are just as inclined to increase state encroachments on individual freedoms.

The question ends up being, however, how "anti-statist" should we be? Is anarcho-capitalist Somalia their ideal?
