Sorry for Putting On Airs

My profile has changed just a tad. After reading my article entitled The BBC Three-Step, freeman had some comments about my claim to be a libertarian being suspect because I am not against the war in Iraq. Actually his comments were about the laws and institution that have been set up in Iraq being socialist and not, as I had characterized them, supporting free-trade, free-market, and free-people. It was only at the end as a concluding remark that he informed me that in his view, no one who is pro-war can legitimately claim to be a libertarian.

Pro-war, for you sheltered kiddies is the current term for people who were not against the war to overthrow the Baathists. My using it is not an admission on my part to being a widespread proponent of war in general. Just to clarify.

But in the interests of avoiding confusion and leading the next generation of little libertarians astray, I have decided to backtrack somewhat from my claim of being "libertarian in my views" I hope that the new terminology less presumptuous.

Thank you for your support during this difficult transition.

Wow…all this time I thought that you were the epitome of libertarian thought. How now, shall I proceed?

With slightly more seriousness, I was not admitted into the libertarian club to begin with. It’s that whole theism thing. Wait…am I permitted to read this blog? I’m so confused. Must I go through life without the benefit of an adequate label? Well, I suppose individualism will suffice.

Don't let the Pope hear you call yourself an individualist. That was one of his evil modern "isms" that stick in his holy craw.
