While visiting Freedomfest we were fortunate to interview the acclaimed author P.J. O’Rourke, who’s written 16 books. I remember first reading Parliament of Whores 25 years ago. I knew then that I was experiencing greatness. P.J. has the ability to find humor in almost any subject, whether it’s a brutal war, or an over the hill demented politician. His ability to craft a sentence to get the maximum affect laughter is truly amazing.
He believes that every person was born a libertarian. And yet through some process we get corrupted and lose that desire for personal freedom. He’s not sure why, but eventually some us find our way home and wind up at a conference like Freedomfest, rejecting the concept of unlimited government.
