Just like the September 11th of nine years ago this year's was also a
perfect late Summer day in West Chester, Pennsylvania. On this sad
anniversary of the horrible terrorist attacks I had the pleasure of
joining the weekly peace vigil held by United for Peace & Justice.

My
libertarian message was well received. The key was explaining that at
its core libertarianism is about abolishing the use of all force from
human relationships. Every conclusion and policy prescription derives
from that principle. This resonated nicely with everyone that I spoke to
at the rally. The other participants were quite open minded and asked
many good questions.

I encourage all of my fellow liberty minded
peace lovers to join rallies such as this one. There is much we can do
to help end the imperial wars by working with people who may differ with
us on other issues.

Near
the rally, but not participating in it, was Mark Smith, a veteran of
many of the same End the Fed rallies as I. He mentioned that the pro-war
demonstrators had not taken too kindly to his 9/11 truth message.
Unfortunately, as I wanted to talk to them too, the pro-war
demonstrators had already held their weekly demonstration and left by
the time of the peace rally.

Mark was kind enough to explain his views:
