    I'll need to do that some time.

    Personally, I'm very impressed with Libertarianism as a powerful and
    important corrective to statism in political life. I'm not yet impressed

    identified with Objectivism?). Its bark seems stronger than its bite, but
    this is a recurring impression, not the result of careful study.
