Well. Heh. I've gradually separated from the mainstream liberty movement. Seems like it has been a bit bastardized (generally speaking) at some level and the term freedom itself is being used as a prop for oppression at times. Depends on the issue, I suppose. The movement has become a wide open area for stalking horses of varying political and social philosophies to kind of blend in and stimulate personal/political agendas. I see so many bad things being forwarded and all in the name of liberty no less. It's disturbing.
But anyway. I keep on keeping on. In terms of healthy discussion with regard to the actual principles of Individual liberty, I get more accomplished in liberal circles truth be told. It's weird, really. Maybe people in those circles aren't so hard headed and cock strong and pre-configured to go looking for a reason to stimulate the notion of bloodshed as being the only answer to things. I find liberal circles to be a more open demographic to discuss such things. Could be they just lack the fundamental principles and they are less challenging to them because of that. Maybe that's why it is easier to forward/insert/stimulate discussion of logical principles. I don't know. Liberals generally tend to be followers instead of leaders. At least out in the wild.
