Champion of libertarianism

A shout out of appreciation once again for Tom Fletcher’s latest brilliant article

A shout out of appreciation once again for Tom Fletcher’s latest brilliant article.  What many of your readers may not realize is that Tom is an adherent to the principals of libertarianism, something championed politically by people like Ron Paul in the U.S.

It’s a hard swallow for progressives, I know, for the very reasons Tom espouses.  I can claim having been in both camps and now am in Tom’s, but yearn for the day progressives will see the absolute essential values of respect for individual freedom and autonomy that are missing from their idealism.

It is the very core truth of our existence, and to trample it with excess government good intentions is a grave error.  But Tom, even though I haven’t gone down the 9/11 rabbit hole myself, don’t dismiss those people until you’ve followed in their footsteps of in-depth research…it’s not in the same ballpark as most of your material.
