Spreading the message of liberty

One thing I have to keep reminding myself: my newspaper column is not about the money, which is extremely minimal for the amount of work that goes into it. It's about exposing people to the message of liberty-- people who would never otherwise be exposed.

For that reason, it continues to be worth it as long as I am allowed to keep writing them.

I admit, though, that coming up with topics every week for the column is a killer. It's something which occupies a lot of my time, every single day.

The paper would prefer to focus on local concerns, and not so much on national or international stuff. But so little that happens locally inspires ideas. Or, the things which do happen drag on for years, and I don't need to keep rehashing them. Otherwise, it's just the same old things happening, over and over again.

A lot of things just don't interest or inspire me. I generally don't care much what some politician says or does. I'm not that interested in their "laws". The evil deeds of the cops are too commonplace to rail against every time they get exposed.

I would rather not do too many philosophy columns, but without idea-inspiring events, that's where I tend to go.

So, if you have any constructive ideas, let me know.


Reminder: I could always use some help.

Writing is my job.
YOU get to decide if I get paid.
