Jesus was a Libertarian (?)
Just back from a delightful weekend with the Libertarians in Savannah. Only one impassioned defense of the War on Terror; the rest are profoundly skeptical, even earnest, anti-Neocons, anti- -- a motley crew of anarchists, Southerners, and socially-conscious Roman Catholics. Good times had by all.
I miss conversing with these people when I'm away from them for too long: the academy needs *some* group to defend the humanities, engage long traditions with the current political climate, argue for civil society and limited government, reaching one hand out to the brave new future and one hand back to the folks at home.
Buy your own shirt.
