Word, always loved him. On this he is dead right as well.

I don't always agree with him 100%, but always respect what he has to say, and he just so happens to be dead right about this.

Yes, Walter is certainly no anarchist, he's a statist, but I will always respect him and his writings. Phaed, he better hurry up, because he is getting on up there in age lol

that last step is very short, but extremely difficult...for all of us, myself included. libertarians that make it there are faced with this choice:

1) can say you want more freedom, less government, without dealing with full cog dis, but remain a little intellectually dishonest

2) be intellectually honest, and you become a social pariah

even with the reality of that choice made plain to see, many would still choose #1

Sometimes I wish I had chosen the intellectual dishonesty over being a social pariah, but in the end, I realize I couldn't have lived with the intellectual dishonesty in my life.

C'est la vie

humans are adept bull****ters, especially to ourselves, but i haven't figured out a way to ignore a truth that's so fundamental once discovered. that's what cog dis is all about.

and, that's why one gets such vehemently combative reactions from other people when all he does is ask if they'd let him be a free man.
