Why are his [David Nolan's] thoughts over 30 years ago important
Because they make sense. (If they didn't make sense, they would not be important.)
The Founders' thoughts are over 200 years old. Clearly, a good thought's old age is no reason to dismiss it.

What makes David Nolan so special? By that I mean why does anyone
care what his intent was? Why are his thoughts over 30 years ago
important today? As a registered Republican very sympathetic to many
libertarian views, I honestly couldn't care less about what David
Nolan thought. I can see that someone identifying with the
Libertarian Party might think his views were important, but I'm not
sure it's rational on their part to care. Whatever his views or
intent was, I can only conclude that they have been abject failures
politically and have done very little to advance liberty.
