Libertarians on Independence Day

3 Jul

Let us celebrate the founding and independence of the archaic Republic of the Thirteen Colonies by solemnly professing our love of, and devotion to, its heir and successor: the glorious American Empire. Long may she reign the world o’er.

Alex Epstein

As anyone who has ever read an Ayn Rand novel knows, beneath the icy facade Objectivists are just molten lava.  Epstein also brings his philosophy background to Randian topoi like industrial progress to sweep away cant and produce remarkable rare (albeit commonsensical) clarity.

Thomas Peters, National Organization for Marriage activist, tragedy and recovery

30 Jun
I’d blogged/vlogged about a debate between conservatives and libertarians on gay marriage held a few years back by America’s Future Foundation.

Always enjoying a bit of humor, I’d pointed out that the heterosexual conservatives in the debate were prettier than the gay libertarians they were debating.  Particularly Thomas Peters, the owner of the American Papist blog.  (I’m not alone in publishing writing mentioning that Mr. Peters is good looking.)

I was saddened to learn recently that Peters is now largely paralyzed, having had a tragic swimming accident.

I am also told that he continues to lobby on Capitol Hill and reportedly now has more access than ever.  Previously liberal Congressional offices would refuse him entry or make no time to speak to him.  Now they are afraid of someone tweeting a photo of them refusing entry to a disabled person, so everyone takes the meeting.
