Hey, I resent that remark. I've been described as many things,
but never an altruist. I believe there is no more fundamentally
moral act than earning a profit by free trade; no motive more
noble than self-interest; no sin greater than self-sacrifice.
It is precisely because of these beliefs that I carry them to a
conclusion that most don't even bother thinking through: that
libertarian principles oppose intellectual property law. That
does not in any way affect by beliefs about real property. If
you trespass on my land, you'd better be wearing a kevlar jacket.
