if a Libertarian government had a “defence sec”, at least he’d look like one
Well, there you go. I could not remember his name until about a minute ago. It’s “Des Lynam”, isn’t it: either Des or Bob, but probably Des.
If we are others are right about an ultimately global agenda for total control of all populations under “law” and slave-driving-prohibition (see IP-J’s formal comment on us earlier, here) then something inevitable follows. A Libertarian government will not only need (sadly but inevitably) the forces and the “kit”, but someone who looks and talks the part as War Secretary – replete with all appropriate knowledge of sad detail – to bolster the credibility of the “Foreign Libertarians’ Office”, and the Chiefs of Libertarian Defence Staff.
Someone next to whom the Soldiers do not feel uncomfortable when being photographed. (Famous quote about John Major, from that blue-hatted chap we had in Bosnia: “I’m not sure my soldiers want to be photographed, standing next to a **** like that…”)
I see the main strategic objective of the “Foreign Libertarians’ Office” as actively helping classical liberals and libertarians everywhere outside UK Libertarian Jurisdiction. This may be via “promotional” programmes such as literatire, websites, conferences, endowing University Chairs etc, and it may also simultaneously be via “other” methods, it being a duty to spread the axiomatic doctrine of individual liberty based on Natural Rights and the true Nature of Man.
