As in starchild from San Fran?
Man how good to hear from you again. I haven?t heard from you since
the Libertopia convention. I hope all is well with you and yours.
Yeah it is kind of overstated. I was advised that if I wanted to get
people involved that I needed to start advertising the site somehow. I
couldn?t think of a better way to do it then to start talking to
other Libertarian and Libertarian leaning people on various lists. Who
else would be more interested in promoting liberty than others already
knowledgeable in that arena?
My actual hope was that some people on the list would be interested
enough that they might like to join in the fun by becoming authors on
the blog. It would be fantastic to have at least one author per state
writing all the Libertarian news for that state.
There are several pieces on the non-aggression principle throughout
the time and I am sure more will be coming as it is the core principle
of the Libertarian philosophy. Often I try to include it as
justification for points being made in various articles. It certainly
is not enough though. There are many other things that can be
discussed as well. My biggest problem, I am only one person. I cannot
write it all myself.
I like your idea about the one sentence. I am really very new at the
idea of advertising and when I write I sometimes get the feeling I am
overdoing it a bit. Unfortunately for me, I know of no other way to
hone the craft and learn from the feedback received by individuals
such as you. Thanks very much for the advice, I appreciate it.
When you say contribution, would actually putting the content of a
relevant article with a link back to the site be more appropriate?

While the site you're advertising does appear to contain a good
amount of pro-freedom content, I think you overstate the case for it
somewhat. I also think you could have boiled this post down to a
single sentence, without losing anything. Something like:
"Please come check out LibertarianViewpoint.com -- we've compiled
information there from a bunch of different sources to try to make it
a one-stop shop for researching libertarian views."
If this is your site, I would encourage you to include some prominent
material there discussing the Non-Aggression Principle. Presenting
that idea seems key to the kind of endeavor you've described.
By the way, who are you? I would appreciate you including your name
when you post, and also your cooperation in trying to make a unique
contribution to this list -- not necessarily in every post, though
that would be ideal, but at least a good part of the time. By
"unique", I mean something you wrote specifically to people here. In
other words, please don't just use this list as a dumping-ground for
mass-audience messages distributed elsewhere!
Love & Liberty,
