Thanks!  Andrew said it was the most enjoyable interview he'd ever done, which was an honor, since he's interviewed some interesting people.

Thanks for doing the interview, Jason. I really think the Atlasphere is a good place to look for recruits, since they have over 2000 (and counting) members, all of them pro-liberty.

I hope some of them discover the FSP and join us after reading the interview.  :)

I also enjoyed the interview. In particular, I was interested in your mention of "neo-medieval" city-state governments. It reminded me of an article by Don Devine where he discusses the role of municipal governments in a way that somewhat anticipates the concept. I thought you might be interested in the article:

Of course, he doesn't take the idea as far advocating entirely autonomous city-states, but I can see what he's proposing as being an intermediate step. While Devine is coming from a more traditionaly conservative viewpoint, I still thought there were some interesting parallels between his views and yours.
