I consider myself a libertarian. I do not believe there is a true
connection between libertarians and racism, religion, isolationism, and
ultra-conservative issues. This is why I am so concerned about attempts to
link libertarians or extropians to certain unrelated viewpoints. These are
not libertarian or extropian views. There seems to be an attempt to link
these views, but I don't know why or why now.
