This one is lots shorter, but very poignant.

Well if you feel you have to go, then I cannot stop you. I just want to say two things  before you leave.

First of all.

I believe that you are the greatest living thinker in the cause of liberty I truly admire you, not just for your pure devotion to liberty but also for the way you have stepped up to the PC mob.

Secondly, if you truly want to stop this discussion, then I would ask you to point me to someone (or some group) who would like to continue it. I have been alone for so long and I am tired.

Dear David:

Thanks for your kind words. I’m gonna blog this on LRC. Perhaps several readers will take you up on your request.

I’ve been very lucky. I’ve never been alone in my quest for liberty. I highly recommend you get in touch the Mises Institute, read their material, attend their lectures, contribute money to them; even a small amount will do, if that’s all you can afford.

I get about 200 e mails every day. If I’m going to keep up with my writing and speaking commitments, I’ve got to cut down somehow. I answer all polite letters. And, sometimes, as in your case, do so for several iterations. But, sorry, I’ve got to call a halt to this one.

Best regards,
