Rollo is a (Current Year – 1988)-year-old supporter of liberty and questioner of political authority. He started out like so many as a neocon Republican, but found himself on the losing end of a lot of arguments. He noticed inconsistencies in his beliefs and began attempting to correct them in order to find truth. It led him to come to the conclusion that the state has no legitimate authority. He’s not strictly either a deontological or consequentialist libertarian, but instead believes that there are many ways to come to the conclusion of liberty. His biggest influences include Michael Huemer and Murray Rothbard.
Rollo has a degree in mechanical engineering and currently works as a reliability engineer in the petrochemical industry. He has previously held engineering positions in both the nuclear and pharmaceutical industries. Given his career in engineering, he especially has interest in free market solutions to regulation and safety and how those ideas are already in practice today.

Slappy Jones II
Slappy was a passionate neoconservative in his younger years. During the 2008 election cycle he was debating a liberal friend on the merits of Barrack Obama. There was more emotion than logic during that debate and definitely no winner, but it changed his life forever. Determined to crush his opposition the next time, he went to the book store and found Henry Hazlitt’s “Economics in One Lesson” on the shelf. From there it was Bob Murphy, Tom Woods, and Murray Rothbard.
It was around this time he started hanging out with Rollo McFloogle who, after several late nights discussing philosophy and economics over a cigar, was able to bring him along to libertarianism. We started this blog in 2012 and we’re still going strong.
Slappy Jones II has a finance degree and currently works as a life and disability insurance broker. He has a wife and 3 young children. He is already opposed to the next president and the next war.
