First rate stuff, Kevin.

Thank you, though I'm not completely pleased with the way it turned out. It's a bit clunky.

Did you have to link to that statist fuckwit at potowmack.org?

jsid-1058359978-255892  Kevin Baker at Wed, 16 Jul 2003 12:52:58 +0000

Yes I did. He makes a perfect counterpoint.

Thank you for giving my comments concerning the practice of personal sovereignty a wider audience.

The Eric S. Raymond quote came from his highly-recommended essay, "Ethics from the Barrel of a Gun", available at http://www.catb.org/~esr/guns/gun-ethics.html .

You're welcome. It was very pointed and eloquent, and was the catalyst for this essay. Thanks for writing it.

I'll modify the post to include the link to Raymond's piece.

Mmm I like the letter you quoted. If anyone has to hold a gun, it should probably be someone who thinks that they are morally sovereign (read: I decide what's right and wrong).

Didn't you just object that "what barbarian invading forces did is no proof text on morality"?

I'm sure they believed themselves "morally sovereign."

Very impressive. I offer my humble thanks for putting into words ideals I could not hope to do justice to.

Thank you, sir.
