Perhaps not sure, just counter-intuitive

The article painted Thel as a mustache-twirling villain who was seeking power by donating to Ron Paul and promoting (even controlling?) libertarianism and libertarians. The assertion seems pretty preposterous. It would be like a Christian investing in promoting atheism.

Just reading his list of achievements and endeavors, he generally seems like a force for good in the world. He could be a hero in an Ayn Rand novel along with Elon Musk.
