Julian Sanchez Loses his Innocence

Good liberals, like good libertarians, are contrary to popular myth quite skeptical of Big Government. With liberals it tends to be about things like McCarthyism and red-baiting, through to the Cointelpro and other FBI abuses, the use of the U.S. military to extend and defend corporate interests, as well as its being a giant pork project in and of itself, and our related human rights atrocities which were related to those ends. With libertarians it's usually the consequences of economic regulation and taxation that get them all upset. And, usually we agree on the bedroom stuff. Julian's a libertarian who has just learned a few things about what gets OUR knickers all in a twist about the Big Gov.
