Found my long-lost copy of _The Machinery of Freedom_ the other day.
Here's a quote where Friedman talks about Czech students:

"They wished to preserve government health case and some other welfare
measures, but these were not what they meant by socialism. To them,
socialism meant a just society, a society where people were reasonable
prosperous and reasonably free; it meant roughly what we mean by a
liberal society.

"This, I think, is what socialism means to much of the world. If so,
socialism need not be opposed--merely improved."

Someone on slashdot identified himself as Green/Libertarian the other
day. Any why not? I'm on the viridian green mailing list myself.
