That’s it from me this year folks.
LibertyGibbert will be officially closed from Friday, 16th December till Thursday, 5th January. You’ll still be able to access all articles in the archive, and comment if you like, but all posts will be held in the moderation queue until I get around to looking at things online; something I’ve resolved to do as little as possible over the festive season. I decided to hold back some of the weightier LG articles in the pipeline until then, to give us all some breathing space. I did promise to get them out this year, but time has beaten me.
My sincerest thanks to all of you for making LibertyGibbert the place it has been in 2011. We’ve managed to cover issues of Libertarianism and rights, economics, science, philosophy, literature and politics, and not a small amount of great music in between. If you have any suggestions as to something you would like to see in 2012 (assuming the internet is still around), or do differently, let me know through the Contact page.
From my family to yours, all the very best wishes for a joyous Christmas and a happy, peaceful, prosperous and free New Year.
Who says I don’t have faith.
Merry Christmas Oz, and all.
And here’s for a libertarian (and inherently prosperous!) new year.
Oz, Merry xmas to you and your family.
Merry Christmas to the Ozboy family, and to everyone else here. Cheers!
Have a wonderful Christmas everybody, I’m in England with family myself so not blogging much.
Hope we all have a better New Year.
As a bit of thought-provoking festive season reading, from today’s Sydney Morning Herald, here’s an article on belief systems and fundamentalism, by Australian psychologist Hugh Mackay. Though he deals primarily with fundamentalism as it pertains to the major monotheistic religions, it is as easily applicable to one or two other contemporary religions with which we are all too familiar.
Happy New Year all. I hope everyone had a Merry Christmas as well. I apologize for not stopping in much, it’s been a helluva year. I have been reading (usually on my phone when I couldn’t comment) so I have been collecting links when I run across something relevant to a thread. I’ll just paste a few of them and let you sort out where they belong.
This has a lot of great essays.
I hope you do get back to the “saving people from themselves” theme. That is one place where personal experience makes me a bit more of a “romantic” libertarian.
Here’s wishing everyone the best in the new year, especially to our friends in Europe.
Thanks, Oz, for all your hard work.
