In 1971, when libertarianism was still a budding project of a handful of wealthy right-wing MIT grads — the Koch brothers, Poole, and Poole’s former MIT roommate, David Nolan, founder of the Libertarian Party — Poole laid out his strategy for transforming “statist” America into “laissez-faire” America. Since laissez-faire libertarians would always be a tiny minority, Poole wrote, they should organize in tight-knit groups and “permeate” strategic levers of power. He cited Opus Dei under dictator General Franco in Spain, and the economic technocrats under Brazil’s military junta that year, as two examples that libertarians could emulate.
