Was in the Tom Paine printshop the other day and was marginally disappointed to realise that it only sells prints. I bought two anyway.
However, it got me thinking: Lewes has a fine tradition of revolutionary thought and libertarianism - what better place to have a meeting of libertarian minds on a regular basis? At a pub, of course.
Anyone of a libertarian persuasion left in the town or roundabouts who'd be up for it?

By the way, this webpage gives a good explanation of what libertarianism is - just in case you're unsure (it's not the same as being a Liberal Democrat): w w w.cato.org/pub_display.php?pub_id=5758

Skeptics in the Pub already exists. Free minded individuals. Try it out.

Good idea .Reminds me, I read Norm`s Viva thingy about banning Fox Hunting for which he has enthusiastically voted.
He claimed it was because he could not understand any pleasure in killing an animal .The principle then is "If I do not understand it then the powers of the state must be deployed to prevent it taking place".Now what could possibly go wrong with that .....

Yes, I was looking at the Skeptics in the Pub website today. Will certainly be giving them a go, but it's not quite the same thesis.
I didn't realise the Headstrong Club still existed - will check them out also.
Cheers guys!

Sounds like an interesting idea!
By the way, the Headstrong Club has (finally!) got a website now - pretty basic but has details of upcoming events etc.

Hi, Yawn.
Apologies, I meant the idea about a 'meeting of libertarian minds'.
All the best

If you lend someone £20 and don't see them again it was probably worth it.
