No, I'm not necessarily exhorting you to adopt the substance of his beliefs as a libertarian. There are many differences and legitimate arguments among libertarians, and for now my policy here at The Humble Libertarian is to operate under a "truce" and explore and openly discuss our differences while using our common love of liberty as the vast common ground upon which to advance our ideas and social agenda.
What I am saying is that we need to be more like Milton Friedman in terms of our style and presentation of those ideas and that social agenda. This is something I heard at a fantastic speech (by George Mason University Professor of Economics Russ Roberts) this past weekend at the Students for Liberty Conference in Washington.

Ultimately people are concerned about whether a libertarian society will be a good society, and we must show them it will be a good society by being good people. We need to be more like Milton Friedman in our presentation of libertarian ideas. Watch him speak sometime. He's always very polite, very witty, and he always smiles."
