Great guy. His argument for the small state supported by taxation is still the best of its kind.
EDIT: Fred - just realised that this was your thread. Welcome to the the light side
I didn't say I agreed with him entirely. He does flip flop on the taxation issue if you listen to his other dissertations. Either way, I still like him. I think he doesn't want to hurt anybody, and so were he given the chance to be the tax man, I don't think he'd go after an evader or he'd turn it down flatly.
If I were to be provided a choice between somebody like him, and the greater majority of politicians I know (perhaps excepting Ron Paul), I'd definitely take him. It's at least a step in the right direction (opinion).
