Virginia Postrel is a political and culturalwriter of broadly libertarian, or classical liberal, views. She is best known for her 1998 book The Future and its Enemies. In it she explains her philosophy, "dynamism," which she contrasts with "stasis." Loosely, the latter refers to top-down control and regulation and desire to maintain the present state of affairs, whereas the former is forward-looking and change-seeking and generally favors unregulated organization through "spontaneous order".
