I've been in that same place for years. In my case, it happened while reading Robert Heinlein's novel The Moon Is a Harsh Mistress, which is now 51 years out of date, but which was first published when I was in High School. My Social Studies teacher was a political junkie, and he used the book as a timely learning aid.

In fact, just two weeks ago, this was published: http://www.learnliberty.org/blog/lunar-prisoners-fight-for-freedom-in-robert-a-heinleins-the-moon-is-a-harsh-mistress/?gclid=CJ-Es5fMl9ICFVK2wAod3XgDIg

In modern Libertarian (with a large "L") thought, Heinlein has replaced Ayn Rand. I always thought Rand was more anti-Communist than anything else, but hers was a different world, just as the world of today is different from Heinlein's world. As for who will occupy that central place in libertarian (with a small "l") thought in this age of digital networking as we evolve into a cybernetic species, I do not know, but I don't see any likely candidates today.

If you attended one of Heinlein's parties, I am not sure how much of it you could remember.

Do you speak from personal experience? I never met the man myself.
