I wonder how many of you dig, Milton Friedman, Lew Rockwell, Murray Rothbard, and Ludwig Von Mises? Any of you happen to watch John Stossel? How many copies of The Fountainhead  and Atlas Shrugged are there between the lot of you, I wonder?

Even if true, what's your point? Got your copy of the Little Red Book?

Don't own one. Not into Chairman Mao. But so what if I did? I'm not the one claiming to be an individual with need of a completely different ideological classification as all the other individuals that read the exact same things and hold the exact same political and economic beliefs as I do.

Ah, is your point that if you appreciate the thoughts and ideas of another you are no longer a "free thinker?"

No. My point is that you are no less indoctrinated as those you all call out for being indoctrinated. You just are indoctrinated by a different set of values. I have met a ton of liberals in my life, and they have read a wide variety of political scholars and philosophers, some of which I hadn't heard of until I met them. I have never met a Libertarian that didn't read the exact same crap as every other Libertarian. That doesn't make you a free thinker, that makes you part of a collective, any way you slice it.

 I've never met a more homogenous bunch of indoctrinated people in my freaking life.

I don't believe you said that. With all the buzzwords, cute phrases and revisionist history ........

Of course not. You should ask your buddies how many of them really dig that Freidrich Hayek fella...
