Libertarian Infiltrates California Government

I met up yesterday with a hardcore libertarian, who has found himself with a position in the California state government.

It is, of course, impossible for him to really cut the state government to a semi-tolerable size. It's one very big machine. But his work includes evaluating different proposals for an elected California official. He tells me that any proposal that is a serious violation of the non-aggression principle, he puts in the dead pile, not to be pursued further. Once it gets in that pile, no one sees that proposal again.

Naturally, anyone powerful enough, will find a way around the dead pile, but there are many proposals that do get buried in that pile.

Think of it as a libertarian cemetery.
