I’m really talking less about individual policies and politicians than the overall ethos and unchallenged statuses quo of non-intervention, such as the political lobbies and political corruption, as well as a staunch defence of any and all property rights which led, in part to slavery.

I’d agree that individual politicians often fail to realise what their true role is — but that wasn’t really the point.

It may have been somewhat unclear in the article so I hope I’ve been able to clear that up here.
