I consider myself a libertarian, or depending on whether you want to get into the narcissism of small differences, a classical liberal. Broadly this means you are maligned by (almost) everyone. Especially other libertarians who want to argue the minutiae of every utterance you make about their cherished dogma and… (perhaps more importantly) like to point out where you have fallen short in your fervor for the cause or have varied from the sacred canon.

I find this both irksome and incredibly draining.

As with everything I write this is for my own edification and its not really meant for vigorous discourse and recrimination. You are however very welcome to poke around though should you so desire.

“Do Thou Great Liberty Inspire our Souls, — And make our Lives in Thy Possession happy, — Or, our Deaths glorious in Thy Just Defence.”

Cato, A tragedy. Act III, Scene VI
