Is Libertarianism compatible with democracy?

Michael Lind seeks to answer this question in an excellent article in which he quotes giants of the political philosophy, such as von Mises, von Hayek and Friedman, in order to show that not only is libertarianism incompatible with democracy, it is completely at odds with it, and that those championing the cause hold democracy in utter contempt.

It would be a fool's errand to try to coherently post quotations from the article: it's only effective in its entirety, so go and read it.
