Outline of the
Western Libertarian Alliance
in the form of an e-mail to Michael Voth,
Second of Two Messages

Dear Michael:

         I've decided to post my notes on the formation of WLA, so you and our mutual friends can get an idea where I'm headed with it. I mean to do everything in the clear light of day, without secrets. Our most effective weapon will be implacability. To that end, WLA will pursue a policy of stringent, no-compromise criteria for members, candidates, and positions on issues. Let others, in other organizations, do what they will in this regard, WLA will be rigorous and reliable.
         Some of these points are self-explanatory, others are not -- this is just an outline after all. Some may seem to contradict others, which is my way of setting up as many win-win situations as possible. As I said in my first message, I plan to write an essay on each point that merits it, ending up with a book and a series of lectures on taking back our movement, our country, and our future.
         I won't waste time arguing with anyone about any of this or trying to convert anyone. I'll simply gather up those willing to work with me. Comments are welcome, but I don't want to hear what's wrong with any of this, or why it won't work, simply which part you're interested in helping with. I'm plan to defy all Libertarian precedent by not talking this to death; I'm just going to do it.
