I give you credit for trying, Graeme – and actually, I knew about your other post before you put it up at Mises, because I’ve got you up on my Google Reader.
I know how hard you’re trying to restrain yourself in these posts, but you can’t quite do it, can you? “CO2 bedwetter”?! That’s great, and it’s just the kind of stuff that makes flaming radicals like me look moderate. George Reisman could use ALOT more support like that, at least as far as I’m concerned! Keep up the good work, as I’ve said before.
But honestly, Graeme, if you’re concered and want to be effective, besides ranting on about the science (you know, the ranking that has had you kicked off LvMI multiple times and now has you “in moderation” as you claim) – and believe me, a good chunk of folks at Mises love to swallow what you’ve got to offer there – why don’t you engage people who disagree with you on the science in good faith with respect to economics and philosophic principles? It’s my willingness to do that that has given me grudging acceptance and traction at Mises, and it’s Reisman’s failure to do so (like yours) that is really starting to turn people off. Not only does he not persuade the Austrians, he offers nothing that can persuade others – and that’s what YOu should be thinking about.
Ah. So Graeme Bird is Jimmy Jam is Raheem. Spreading lies about me here on your own blog now too are you? Well, I invite your readers to explore my blog and my website. If they show more intellectual honesty and initiative than you, they will see the truth about me: that I am a consistent hard-core libertarian who rejects the theory of intrinsic value and that I don’t believe in the global warming alarmism. Despite this, you kept harassing me at the Mises blog as if in total ignorance of it. All because I challenged Dr. Reisman’s definition of environmentalism as representative of the whole movement and pointed out that his preferred strategy is practically tailor-made to lose the battle against the truly evil core environmentalists. How old are you, anyway, to get off with calling me a kid?
