- ItemLibertarian populism, neoliberal rationality, and the mandatory long-form census: implications for sociology(University of Alberta Press, 2012) Ramp, William; Harrison, Trevor W.This article argues the Canadian government’s decision in 2010 to eliminate the mandatory long-form census constitutes a mobilizing appeal to libertarian populism commensurate not only with neoliberal concepts of individualism, private property, and the role of the state, but also with a redefinition of what counts as valid argumentation and a legitimate basis for making knowledge claims. This rationale has implications for sociological research and theory, for the profession of sociology, and for a sociological vision of society.
