Libertarian Cheer for the New Year
To ring in 2005, Harry Browne, author of the classic How I Found Freedom in an Unfree World and two-time Libertarian Party presidential candidate (but I won't hold that against him too much), has written a wonderful bit of libertarian optimism today for LewRockwell.com. It's called "The Future Is Not Hopeless." You'll find it here, and I urge you to read it.
Writes Harry: "While [freedom's] victory isn't assured, it is possible."
I wrote a similar piece of cheerleading back in July 2002 for Strike-The-Root.com. It opened with the statement "Most libertarians depress the crap out of me." You'll find that essay ("Hey, Libertarians -- Cheer Up!") right here.
Happy New Year!
