I'm not sure if she (Martine Rothblatt) ever wrote about libertarian 
approaches to the world.  Where do you find this inconsistence Perry?

And, why would you hang your future so tightly to any one political theory 
when no one political theory is substantially adequate to intelligently 
address the rate of change and the effects of change and how the world can 
function in order to protect individuality and freedom.

If you are referring to Max, and perhaps this is a long shot on my part, 
but if you are, then you would find that his eloquence has evolved, not 
declined.
