United States
Occupation: 
Too embarassed to say.

Short bio:

Dave is a solitary, directionless nerd who lives in Oklahoma, uses OpenBSD with XFCE, reads Manga and Urban Fantasy novels, and basically takes it easy. By nature he is a troubleshooter rather than a scholar. And his work is best understood in that light.

Bio:

I'm an Austro-libertarian agorist stemming from a conservative family with libertarian leanings. Back around '87 I became alarmed at the direction of this country. Slowly and carefully, I started asking questions and reading. There was no internet at that time, so it took a long time to find what I was seeking. At some point it became obvious that a futile and useless gesture was called for; and that I was just the guy to do it. Though I naturally lean toward libertarian anarchy, around '94 I became a Bircher. I remained a member for a little over a decade; and during that time I served as a Chapter Leader and later a Coordinator (field staff). I resigned from the JBS around 2007 (oddly, for the same reason I joined) and reverted to anarchy: a better version this time. I'm largely directionless. But I do have interests. I meander through those interests as the wind blows me; and occasionally produce an essay. At some point, I would like to develop business model that is intrinically detrimental to the state.

Bob Murphy's argument was simple and effective: the government stole the money from taxpayers, and that libertarians who take money from the government knowingly receive stolen wealth.
