An email from JF: “Thank you for this well-timed LRC post. Although I think you intended it to apply to the FLDS compound, it also applies to me: for several months I’ve been planning to emigrate to Hong Kong. Vote with my feet, stop unwillingly funding the enemy, &c. I still think it’s a good idea, but Rothbard just

1. brought attention to the cowardice within some of my reasons for jumping ship; and

2. rehabilitated ‘stay in the US’ as an option.

“In other words: Rothbard defeated my desperation, and stiffened my spine.

“You — and your organizations and your friends — have been hell on my plans. Not even a year ago I was going to make a career of the military. Strange world.”
