Death of a libertarian

As someone who has been (more or less) a member of the libertarian movement, I'm struck by how many people in what is supposed to be a movement of individualists are intolerant of other opinions, rigidly ideological, pessimistic, grouchy and just plain mean. Robert Anton Wilson was a notable exception, and so, apparently was Alan Bock, who had a spirit of optimism that the movement often lacks. Bock was also a notable warrior against the "war on some drugs," so I figure RAW fans would want to know about him.
