Interesting interview with John Barlow (Libertarian co-founder of the EFF)

I just came across an interesting interview in Reason Magazine with John Barlow, a Libertarian and co-founder of the Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF).

He covers some interesting political views, including why he know believes that it's important for Libertarians to be active and outspoken, as opposed to just living a 'Libertarian lifestyle'.

Amusing quote: "But generally speaking, I felt to engage in the political process was to sully oneself to such a degree that whatever came out wasn’t worth the trouble put in. I thought it was better to focus on changing yourself and people around you, to not question authority so much as bypass it whenever possible."

For more good stuff, interested people should check out libertarianism.
