A quick word on Editorial Policy...
... in fairness to the people who leave comments here, it is DK's blog and is under his editorial control.
Basically, there is no editorial policy.
When I first invited other people to write at The Kitchen, some years ago, they were people with whom I generally disagreed, but who wrote decently. I actively wanted to stimulate debate within this blog.
In those days, it would have been absolutely and entirely wrong to assume that the opinions posted by those contributors were shared by myself—because the fact that I disagreed with them was the very reason that I invited them in the first place.
That policy has not substantially changed: many of the Lefty types have given up blogging, gone to write for The Grauniad (in one case) or returned to their own blogs.
One of the factors in this last result has been the virulent abuse they received in the comments. This is fair enough: I write what I want, and you commenters can write what you want (as you know, I never delete any comments (unless they are spam) and nor do I moderate said comments). However, one can understand that people writing here as a hobby do not necessarily want to spend their entire time being abused.
The entirely logical result is that those who remain writing here are those with whom I—and the commenters—generally agree. However, I should point out that I tell contributors that there is no Writing Policy—they can write about what they want, when they want and in any style they want. I occasionally tidy up presentational code but I don't edit the contributions in any other way—and nor do I vet any of them.
The conclusion of all of this, and the reason for this post, is to point out that attacking me because someone else has written something on this blog that you disagree with is neither valid nor fair (and vice versa, of course).
Expecting other contributors to The Kitchen to share my values and to attack either me or them because of what you perceive the values of this blog to be is similarly invalid.
And attacking libertarianism in general because of what any of us write is also invalid. The Devil's Kitchen does not speak for members of the UK Libertarian Party, let alone libertarians worldwide.
I realise that there will probably be more people in the comments to this post pointing out that I shouldn't bitch and moan about being attacked for stuff that I didn't write and that is fair enough—you are all entitled to your views.
However, I state all of the above so that no one can claim ignorance of the Editorial Policy at The Kitchen.
