Mr. Block,

I have been a big fan of yours for years. I sent your “Privatize Everything” video lecture at the Mises Institute from last year to my City Council here in Duckburg, CA. They were not impressed. Ha! There are five members of our town’s (pop. 12,000) city council. One is from Nebraska like me and I’ve had a couple of beers with him. He’s receptive to Libertarian ideas. Another councilman is more conservative/Republican and doesn’t really trust me. The other three council members are women and so liberal that I would call them Communists. XYZ, the most progressive of them, wrote to me that “I wish I could find a way to automatically delete your emails.” She is running for re-election and our town is littered with lawn signs endorsing her. It is somewhat depressing to me.

This is life in liberal ABC County. 80%+ voted for Obama and 65%+ votes for Hillary here.

I do what I can and for argumentative ideas I use many of your ideas in your lectures at Mises. Thank you! I also appreciate your great sense of humor.

T, Duckburg, CA

Dear T: Thanks. This letter made my day. Best regards, Walter
