Any Other Lesbian Conservatives Out There?

hey Dani, nice to meet you i'm Jule

you know what, I'm reading a book of Mario Vargas Llosa (a peruvian novelist) right now, it is named "el paraiso en la otra esquina" which i think has been translated to "way to paradise". I really enjoy the way he writes, and the places he brings the reader too. Have you ever heard about that writer ?

Did you read One Hundred Years of Solitude ? from the columbian writer gabriel garcia marquez, it shows a pretty interesting view of the history/society/political decision of some south american countries

try reading works by albert nock. some consider him an early libertarian and others consider him to be a conservative anarchist.

thanks for the recommendations, Jule. One Hundred Years of Solitude is in my library, but I haven't read it yet. Thanks for the reminder.

Ashleigh, I'm not of the libertarian persuasion, politically (that term has a different meaning, philosophically, in the free will literature; and does describe my beliefs on free will..) but all are welcome. thanks for the contribution

thought that last question was for Ashleigh; but as she didn't answer, to be safe, I will. I'm a fan of the classics, I guess - Hayek and Adam Smith (as an aside, while An Inquiry Into...The Wealth of Nations is a must read, it would be nice if people remembered the handy companion piece, The Theory of Moral Sentiments). I love Theodore Dalrymple's body of work; and I've gotten into Richard Pipes, as well. only loosely related, but a must read, is Victor Frankl's Man's Search For Meaning. I've been meaning to read Charles Murray. I can't say that I have a favorite book (even regarding literature) - there are just too many good books.

I've been gone from the site for quite a while, so I'll repeat the question. Worth repeating.

Isn't a "lesbian conservative" a contradiction in terms?

Nope. Why would it be?
