I blame too much SF, too young.
The point is, I grew out of it.
(I remember the exact moment, in fact. I was on a houseboat on Bull Shoals lake talking to one of my Fundie uncles, who was trying to explain to me why I needed Jesus in my life, and I was explaining to him that I was an atheist and a libertarian, and we didn't need nothin' but guns and freedom, and he asked me what a libertarian was, exactly, and I started explaining to him how people didn't need governments or laws or anything but their own wits and boldness to make it in this here world, and the more I explained, the more I knew that every word I was saying was utter bullshit, and by the time I finished talking I was a libertarian no more.)
(OTOH, I am still an atheist, despite his devoted attempt to save my dark and evil soul. Oh, well.)
Here is my point, and I do have one: Who, who, who over the age of 19 can truly believe this crap?
