The Motorhome Diarists are out of jail and preparing to sue the pants off the cop gang that kidnapped them; details here and here.

In related news, Charles Johnson (in his Molinari Institute t-shirt) talks briefly with the Diarists about agorism here:

    Wow, Charles Johnson has changed a lot since his NCAA/NFL days. He used to be black:

      The president of the Flat Earth Society was black? I did not know dat.

      No, no, I was never a football player. I used to be black, of course, but that was back when I was an acclaimed novelist. However, I eventually came to regret my ill-conceived criticism of The Color Purple.

        You were one of the great college receivers of all time. However, you lacked a degree of explosiveness — Isaac Bruce had such explosiveness and was the same size as you — to succeed brilliantly at the NFL level.

    Is that really radgeek? He looks tons cooler in real life than one might guess.

      He looks tons cooler in real life than one might guess.

      Since I knew him in real life before I knew him online, I can’t judge how cool he would be expected to look from his blog alone.

    I think it’s a requirement that as you become an anarchist the more leftish you are the larger your beard. Compare for example Murray Rothbard to Roderick Long to Peter Kropotkin.

      You are correct: proudhon was slightly more pro-market and property than Bakunin, and consequently had a thin beard compared to Bakunin. Bakunin, meanwhile had a less bushy beard than Kropotkin!

      What about Lysander Spooner?

      • Roderick May 18, 2009 at 5:41 pm #

        What about Emma Goldman?

        • Anon73 May 18, 2009 at 6:41 pm #

          Well Spooner hobnobbed with Mr. Occupancy-and-Use, and I guess we could restrict the claim to male anarchists. The process of identifying peculiar identifying features of left vs right female anarchists I leave as an exercise to the reader.

      So are we to account for Lenin and Trotsky’s goatees, or Stalin’s mustache?

      • Soviet Onion May 18, 2009 at 11:58 am #

        Whoops, read that wrong. I thought you said “as you become more anarchist and more leftish”

    • Soviet Onion May 18, 2009 at 11:59 am #

      Don’t forget about Karl Hess, too.

    Finally, the “left-libertarian”/”right-libertarian” split decided once and for all. 🙂
