Sorry, I wasn't trying to imply that he was. I'm aware that he favours
building up the voluntary sector first,
I was just trying to draw a contrast between the anarcho-lib attitude to reform which he built an intellectual foundation for (without necessarily agreeing with the tactics of hard core libertarians) and the classical lib attitude represented by his father. eg there are hard core libertarians who want immediate separation of school and state even to the point of opposing a voucher system. This, I think, is impractical.
