...that this person was ever a libertarian.
He thinks libertarianism is defined by a lifestyle or by various conspiracy theories, making no mention of the philosophy itself (in either its economic or ethical aspect), except to attack the gold standard (!).
So, if he was never a libertarian, he never "fled." I've yet to meet a real libertarian, i.e. one who actually understands the philosophy, who abandoned it for another school of thought. Once you see the sun, you never go back to shadows on the cave wall.
