- Soon (I hope).
- That sounds great. I'll be in touch
Greg and Frema, you both ask interesting questions, and I think that I can relate my responses in a general commentary on the theme...but that will take until tomorrow so that I can get down what I want to say.
Thorny issues, those. Greg, I know that we have talked about this before and came to no definitive answer. How children and their rights fit in to libertarianism (and any consideration of rationality for that matter) is a difficult spot. More on this tomorrow.
In the meantime, why not enjoy excerpts from something I wrote this semester on a political figure who has always fascinated me. She was probably the first foreign leader I knew anything about. I have generally been a supporter of hers (and Blair's refusal to reverse her policies help to bear this out), but she of course has the flaws of character that make any political figure, well, interesting in the first place. Her memoirs are unintentionally revealing.
Well, look below and tell me what you think.
N.B. The names of authors mentioned within the piece are given at the end.
