I came across this one today –
“Charlie Stross
“Libertarianism” is one of those red flag weasel-nouns like “people’s republic” or “democratic republic” which indicates that whatever entity it is printed on is the exact opposite of the label on the can.”

I spent quite a bit of time exploring the Libertarian world. At first blush it seems like a pretty reasonable philosophy, certainly better than the Republican Conservatism that’s been pushed for the last few decades. Lots of personal freedom and responsibility, so it’s hard not to like it. At least, until I realized a few things.

I chose the Shorter Whitman because of his work, "Song of Myself" and because of my self-deprecating sense of humor. I am under no illusion that I can write successful essays or poetry, but I have been known to write them anyway.
