"'Fusionism' is the attempt to combine libertarianism and conservatism into a unified political philosophy and program. It has been controversial ever since Frank Meyer first defended it half a century ago, and every electoral cycle seems to generate another round of debate over the question of whether fusionism is possible or desirable.(?)Most of this discussion has focused on questions of practical feasibility - the stuff of policy analysis, opinion polls, interest group politics, and spin doctoring. But the deeper, long-standing question is whether fusionism represents a coherent philosophical position in the first place. Does it?" A good question, eh?
