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
with it as a standalone, quite right philosophy (which perhaps then is
identified with Objectivism?). Its bark seems stronger than its bite, but
this is a recurring impression, not the result of careful study.
