1. I will put your
statement, word for word, as a special section in the WLO website for any period of time that you specify up to and including
the rest of my life. Beyond that I cannot guarantee. WLO website address is: https://wlo418.tripod.com/worldlibertarianorder/
Please visit the site if you can. In case you can't, I have attached some material which will answer all basic questions
about WLO goals. We also have a nice listing in the Gale Research "Encyclopedia of Associations," also called "Associations
Unlimited." You can find us too in the on-line edition of the "Yearbook of International Organizations" but not in the hard
2. I will promote the site by sending letters with our web address to every relevant public affairs
group I can think of and will do the same with appropriate Internet message boards. There are other ways to promote this that
I haven't even thought of yet.
3. I will use your statement, word for word, as a chapter in my book "World Libertarian
Revolution." If you don't want me to do this, we can skip this part, but it is an excellent book even if I do say so myself.
When the average person finally comes to understand the principals in it, we will see some very positive changes in society
[The author was trying to avoid sounding grandiose in phrasing things this way. In actuality, total popular understanding
of the principles in this book would result in a complete transformation of life on Earth - EFM 12/2/01]. All the attached
material is from this book. It was finished in 1999 and should be available on CD-Rom by October 2001. I will promote
the book in the same ways as the website.
4. I will use all proceeds from the sale of my books (and in about twenty
years from the sale of the letter you send me) to keep the wolverine from my door in old age. I expect to take a lot of heavy-duty
flack for doing all this. It may help me or it may ruin me. The vast possibilities for constructive change on this planet,
however, lead me on. I will also frame your letter and hang it in my personal library.
5. I will make no commentary
upon your ideas either in my writings or by mouth. If people ask me "Do you agree with what he says?" I will simply say "I
don't do interviews. If you need to know what I think, read my books."
The WLO is a small teaching organization I
founded in 1983 based upon the premise that government at best is a only a necessary evil. As you know, in the United States
today even so-called "conservative" candidates are nothing more than little pee-wee Socialists. Libertarians are the only
people fit to call themselves Americans. We are a relatively small movement at this time, but the numbers are growing.
want to assure you that even now there are thousands of people all over the world working diligently to reduce government
everywhere to it's absolute workable minimum. It won't happen overnight, but it will happen eventually. There is always a
big time lag between what the most advanced people know and what gets implemented by societies.
A sense of heroic
destiny motivates all constructive Libertarian action. Science, even economic and political science, moves ahead strongly
in the face of ignorance. The WLO is trying to increase popular knowledge by promoting books, but a revolution comes down
in many ways and I personally think that the time will come when Oklahoma City will generally be viewed very differently from
the way it is now. I know that you did what you did to try to make people think. In the short term it may not seem to have
had that effect, but time has a way of clarifying things.
When the population begins to wake up then all those people in the building
will not have died in vain. Think of how many people will not be killed the first time we avoid an unnecessary war because
the people are simply too sophisticated about the way politicians and international bankers interact. Whatever happens with
your situation, I wish you good luck, and I would be happy to hear from you whatever you decide relative to the above proposal.
Please find the following attached materials. With letter, total four sides:

of the WLO",

Why Talk with a Terrorist?
November 23, 2002
Comments received about our correspondence with Timothy McVeigh have
been mostly positive. The negative responses are usually from people who disagree strongly with Tim's ideas about state-vs-federal
rights and almost always pose the basic question:
"What reason could anyone have to read what this man has to say?"
To these disconnected individuals our only answer can be:
"The same reason you had when you read it."
Tim was angry about Ruby Ridge, Idaho and Waco, Texas.
