This is what the students are saying (from an e-mail):
"The Kochs aren't Libertarians. But basically anti-Koch=pro-fascist. The Kochs joined Libertarians in the 70's advocating for LGBT, unions free of government restrictions, the right to sue for pollution damages, exposing the global cooling orthodoxy (which is now the global warming one), and successfully fighting left and right totalitarians--all of which their present pseudo-progressive opponents then opposed.
They now fund the idea that if pro-market people are expected to fund colleges, the least colleges can do is not use the money to attack them and give them a fair hearing, typically in comparative philosophy courses. Thus the Kochs are the largest indirect corporate funders of the study of both John Locke--and Karl Marx. Horrors!"

The Libertarian argument does not depend on the quality of common schools but is against coercive taxes and for free choice. Removal of legal blocks to charters, homeschools, private schools, etc. have occurred already in many states.
