Machinery of Friedman - I was, I think, born an individualist. From there is a short hop to libertarianism - one needs only an economics course, or brains - but from there it is a much longer hop to anarchism. That hop, for me, was midwifed by participation in alt.politics.libertarian, and by David D. Friedman, via his book. He has had a website up for a while, with lots of good anarchist and libertarian stuff on it. Now I find via the Agitator that Dr. Friedman has started a blog.
