That's right folks. Apparently while the liberals were tripping over their sandals in the sixties, waving placards and falling into their wind chimes, other people were apparently engaged in a battle of ideas.
And the idea-mongers are winning. How 'bout that?
It's not an idea that was lost on John Adams. He knew that the revolution that was needed in America over two centuries ago was one inside people's heads. It wasn't lost on Thomas Paine, who said of such a battle:
An army of principle will penetrate where an army of soldiers cannot; it will succeed where diplomatic management would fail; it is neither the Rhine, the Channel, nor the ocean that can arrest its progress; it will march on the horizon of the world ... and it will conquer!It's not an idea that is lost on me either, but sometimes libertarians need to be reminded that the revolution we are trying to foment is inside people's heads.
It's about ideas, stupid.
