Is Dilbert's Scott Adams a Libertarian?
Back in 1999, Reason interviewed Dilbert creator Scott Adams. My favorite bit was his response to this question:
Reason: How do you define yourself politically?
Adams: I find that I do not align with any well-established political viewpoint that has a name associated with it. So I've called myself pro-death. I looked for what commonality there is in all of my work and in all of my political views and realized that I support abortion, capital punishment, and a strong military. When I put together the things I'm in favor of, the only thing they had in common was that they all ended up killing someone, whether it was a fetus or a terrorist.
Reader Mike Kelty points out that Adams is addressing the politics question at his Dilbert blog:
People keep asking if I'm a Libertarian. Chat sites and web sites and blogs have devoted considerable time to this ultra-important question. I thought it was time to clear up things.
