Steve, you may or may not know just how *radical* that statement
above *is*! One of the things that has struck me in the 30 years or so
I've been a libertarian is how *little* "good-humored tolerance" there
is among them. Everyone seems bound and determined to force everyone
else to "toe the line" as to their particular ideological proclivity.
Now if good-humored tolerance is going to be a major characteristic of
the FSP group, I'd suggest it will be even more successful than most
would expect. In fact, I suggest that GOOD-HUMORED TOLERANCE should be
one of the watch-words of the FSP. "Freedom in our lifetime is our
goal...good-humored tolerance is our byword."
