Nobel Savages

At her blog Ilana Mercer discussed an exchange we had had regarding libertarians and the left, and I wrote to her about it:

Dear Ilana,

You wrote:

“Yet Auster has a point: these particular libertarians do invariably come out on the side of the Nobel Savage, however savage his actions.”

It’s true that the people who award the Nobel Peace Prize and the Nobel Literature Prize each year are a type of savage. But in this context I think you meant “Noble Savage.”
