Defending the faith

Eugen von Bohm Bawerk

I've decided that, in my new self-appointed position as Chairman of the Committee of Doctrinal Purity, my fellow libertarians need to pull their socks up. There's been far to much slackness over the last 100 years or so, and if we're going to get this revolution going, a bit more discipline is going to be required.

So, be forewarned, I will be passing amongst you with my measuring stick and checking beards to be the regulation length and style (see picture), and issuing fines accordingly, which, in keeping with the hard money principles of our exulted patriarchs, will be payable only in gold or silver.

I can do the hair but I'm not sure about the beard. I hate the itchy throat. I don't mind a big goatee but the missus says it looks like I ate a badger and left it's arse sticking out.

Bad show. Luckily for you, I have yet to establish the infrastructure to enforce my rulings on the other side of the world, or indeed the other side of my front door.

doctrinal purity?

i say, serious Libertarians should join the Militant Apathists.

motto: "Defending to the Death Your Right not to Care"
