Are We Just Unhip?

Interesting, if lightweight, column by Anne Applebaum on why classical liberal/libertarian views of the state may be so unpopular today. Apparently, we were hip in the 1990's, but now we've become unfashionable, like the Backstreet Boys and Ice-T. That means we won't be retro for at least another 15 years......

Actually, Ice-T is still cool, or has become cool again, in his role as a TV cop. After gaining notoreity for a song about killing cops, now he plays one on TV, and not only that, his character is a Republican. I think that's pretty cool.

That link is reg-only. Is there a way to link to it for the non-reg (akin to the neat trick Chris showed me for the NYT)?
