For those who feel like reading yet another underinformed and ultimately useless pop piece on the brilliant John Rawls.... check it. The author is interested in recent attempts by Hayekian libertarians to avail themselves of Rawls's ideas. He calls them "Rawlsekians." How cute.
There are several glaring failures in this piece. Notice especially that the author grossly misunderstands the public reason doctrine. Furthermore, the author claims early in the essay that libertarians are attracted to Rawls because they believe that some libertarian principle would be chosen in the Original Position, but then the author claims that libertarian interest in Rawls is due to the "inherent vagueness of the difference principle." Go figure.
