I recall doing something like this only once before – out of more than 1100 posts to date…
C. Jay Engel writes at The Reformed Libertarian. His bio, as follows:
Spends his day as an investment advisor and helping people with their financial strategies. Living in Northern California with his wife, he writes on everything from politics to theology and from culture to economic theory.
I have no idea how good of an investment advisor he is, but if he is 10% as good at investment advice as he is at writing about all things libertarian I suggest he is the next Warren Buffet (of investing, of course…not political philosophy; on this, he is the inverse and 10,000% of Warren Buffett).
I have seen his work occasionally as a Mises Daily. I try regularly to visit his site.
He has written a piece entitled Anarchism, Minarchism, and the Libertarian Label. It is worth a careful read. He perfectly deconstructs and then reconstructs the entire dialogue on the topic at hand. Perfectly.
I have read several equally compelling pieces from him. In the past, I would send him a short email or post a quick comment at his site. This one deserves more (to the extent my site is “more”).
I know two things, though, regarding posting this at my site. Mr. Engel will certainly see this note; secondarily, people that matter will also see this note.
By doing it this way, I save myself the trouble of sending several emails!
