Libertarian as link-bait

I read this article, and I’m scratching my head wondering why this is any different from any other political effort.

Raising money. Corralling resources. Discussing tactics.

What’s the problem? Oh, that’s right. The wealthy Koch brothers have this issue with the political status quo which has driven this country deep into a ditch, and they’d like to devote their wealth towards doing something about it rather than buy a new corporate jet. Frankly, I call that noble.

The gathering was the first inaugural conference put on by Lincoln Labs, a year-old club of politically minded technologists that has relied upon financial backing and support from the orbit of activist groups that are part of Charles and David Koch’s donor network.

People want something different. Get used to it.
