The Libertarian Alliance Easter message 2008 … IN GOLD WE TRUST


David Davis

I had on Friday prepared a pretentious draft, written in my usual pompously stilted style, in which I was comparing the fortunes and origin of Liberty in the Christian West with its prospects and fate elsewhere. But you would have all laughed silly or wondered what I was taking about (this happens too often for my liking, I will have to improve) so I pulled it. Some of the draft ideas were not as awful as the others so they might resurface sometime.

Instead I restated the text of a lapel-badge that was frequently prepared and sold in the Alternative Bookshop, by Chris Tame and the others. Characteristically, Chris had gone and bought a badge-making machine, as the sort of Covent-gardenish passer-by in those days was also the sort of person who’d wear his/her opinions on clothing.

ITEM: There is no wikipedia entry for the Alternative Bookshop. Anyone care to write one?

    You may be aware that “the other LA” claims to have an “Alternative Bookshop.” It would be a smart move to open an eStore on Amazon, then any book recommendations can jump to there, and the LA gets a percentage for any resulting sales.
