“In recent years and months, both Austrian economics and libertarianism have received increased attention and criticism. The more recent attention is probably in part due to Ron Paul’s visibility and his publicizing both types of ideas. I suppose it’s a good sign that they are no longer ignoring us.

enmity EN-mih-tee (noun): Hatred; ill will; hostile or unfriendly disposition
animosity is an ongoing, or action oriented version of enmity
hostility is even more active than animosity in the hatred
rancor is more wishful than active, like enmity, but a more deep-seated, almost historical hatred
Use enmity when your first choice is hatred but it’s not as serious as animosity or hostility.
WORD WISE: Enmity derives from Old French enemistie, ultimately from Latin inimicus, "an enemy," from in-, "not" + amicus, "friend," from amare, "to love."
QUOTE: "In the course of our conversation he reverted to yesterday's aphorism about it being our joint task to guide our two peoples out of their old enmity into new amity."
