I have to respectfully disagree with him on the point about government granting us "rights". I figure he isn't informed as much as we have educated ourselves on the issue - he even almost puts libertarians and conservatives in the same category - in his mind conservatives are neo-conservatives and libertarians tag along I guess. Libertarians are not neo-conservatives.
This isn't the case. If Steve Woz was informed he would find out that he and Steve Jobs were Libertarians all along and probably didn't realise it. Sure they weren't perfect libertarians but unless you're informed how else do you know better?
I hope we reach out to him so he quickly reconsiders his view by basically becoming informed - otherwise I with everything else I completely agree with him. He has been for a long time in favour of freedom and that, among many things, I thank him for.
