On Municipal Bans

Not to be confused with "Municipal Bands" which I unequivocally enjoy...

My co-worker and friend Brian and I had a great conversation last night over dinner, and the topic came up of food bans (like Chicago's foie gras ban) and also, libertarianism. I shared with him my thoughts on the two subjects (for the record, you can read them here, a recent post on growing external government and here on libertarianism).

The tension between license and liberty in a dependent society is a fascinating one for me. While my position may seem inconsistent upon only a superficial analysis, one would quickly see that self-government is the point on which my position hinges.

As always, AFB is looking both lovely and intellegent. :)

Shame work/family related insanity kept me away from blogging the last few months... Seems I've got a lot of back reading to do!

Don't know when I'm going to fit my homework in to the rest of my schedule, but a girl can try. ;)

BTW, Mr. Morris has a subscription option on his blog... And chance AFB is getting one any time soon??

Hey Sebo,

You're going to make a feller blush with that kind of talk, but thanks. I'll have to stop by your place and see if there's anything new.

(sheepishly) Yeah, I know, that's a darn good idea Morris had, and I suppose it's about time I ask him to show me how to set one of those up here.

Nice to hear from you again, hope all's well...
