Wow, that was fast. Thanks! How long do I have to wait before getting into flame wars? ;)

Hello Michael.  I am Brodie.  And welcome!

So, if I may ask, are you an Austrian?  Or a Keynesian?  Or something else?  If you are an Austrian, are you a minarchist or an anarchist?

At most, I think only 5% of the adult population would need to stop cooperating to have real change.

I think workers should own the means of production. I use the word "own" loosely.

Welcome!

Bring up Aristotle.

Market anarchist, Linux geek, aspiring Perl hacker, and student of the neo-Aristotelians, the classical individualist anarchists, and the Austrian school.

Dude, ancaps flame each other all the time on this board. Watch this:

"I think Hoppe is the leading Austrian scholar right now. His 'argumentation ethics' is genius and I agree with his stance on statist immigration."

(That's bound to start two, if not three, flame wars.)

Are you effing serious??!  Guido Hulsmann is the heir to Rothbard that Hoppe could only ever hope to be!  Hoppe's a nutjob and a racist homophobe to boot.  "Humans argue."  What kind of effing axiom is that?!  GOD!  You Hoppeans piss me the hell off.

 

How's that? :)

You seem to be an interesting fellow, I would like to hear an interview with you, especially about Katrina.

Can anyone suggest that to Lew?

I am not nearly important enough to be on an LRC podcats. Here's one interview I did: http://www.alifelessordinary.com/html/archives/2005/09/allopod_episode_iii_the_interd.php

You asking me? No, not in any linux IRC channel, nor do I have any handle in any venue anywhere close to that one.

Welcome! Impressive Bio. You're what we can use more of.

A nice extra for living an ambitious life and being an interesting person is that it translates in having an interesting girlfriend, as exemplified by Michael's pictures in his profile.

You get what you deserve. It's a free market after all.
