Radical Opening Post

I suppose I should introduce what this blog is about...

This is a way for myself, Aaron (who is currently sick but will join the blog soon) and Brad (to whom I already sent an invite) to join the very few libertarian voices on the blogosphere. We are both rather annoyed that most "libertarian" blogs are right-wing, conservative, pro-war voices. And we hope to contribute to change that, through theoretical, radical discussions of libertarianism and politics in general.

We have called it "radical" because our position is radical - that politics should be seen as a subset of moral values. Our position is individualistic, and our politics consists of the radical idea that "political institutions should only serve to help the expression of individual values", and the fundamental libertarian idea that "no one owns anyone else".

More to come soon.

Nice opening post. And I get to pop the comments cherry!

I just got back from the hospital. I have strep throat. They gave me some antibiotics. Soon as I feel better, I will start posting.

Hooray !

I was planning on making another post tonight on my different views (about individual values, democracy, consumeurism, etc). Perhaps you should write one as well.

I have invited Brad Reddekopp and Andrew Greve to join our team. I'm looking forward to their acceptance. Do you know anyone else who would be good ?

I just joined up. I've never blogged before and I'll probably get my feet wet slowly.

No problem.

Your blog sounds like a very good idea. I'm interested to see what you make of it.

I am a disgruntled Democrat who has long leaned libertarian. I guess you might say that I am now "coming out of the closet" as a libertarian.

I am also gay. And as weird as it may sound to some, coming out as a libertarian evokes more hostility than coming out as a lesbian ever did.

Best of luck with The Radical Libertarian.
