I think many of the libertarians...

of Rockwell's age and level of participation in the movement in one way or another have probably been disenchanted with politics for some time.

They've tried to inform the public for years while most of us - including myself - have been sitting in an ignorant bliss with the wool firmly held over our eyes. Over that time, few political battles have ever been won. However, Rockwell and others have had more success through educational writing. I believe they are sticking to what they've had the most success with in the past.

In some ways, the strategy Lew Rockwell and others like him have taken are necessary. Enough people must be educated before a big enough ground swell can develop to influence politics. It's difficult to compete with the big money. The Establishment is entrenched and has deep roots. There is a critical amount of people to be reached at which the politicians must pay attention. Let's hope that number of pissed off people don't have to resort to a violent revolution.

I think the we are reaching a turning point. I just hope we can avoid economic calamity and widespread civil unrest. Sometimes I think the "leaders" of this world believe reality doesn't matter - that their clout and money can ultimately solve any problem - that they can wave a magic wand and make the problems go away that they have created - that an 80% disapproval rating of Congress is no big deal.

They will learn one day. Reality could care less about their fanciful illusions. People eventually reap what they sow - or reap what was sown by those they emulate that came before them. Some of them were lucky enough to die before it came time to pay the piper. That day is coming though - sooner than they may think.
