Don't wait to be invited

The Blogosphere of the Libertarian Left is here -- a web ring for anarchists and other left-libertarians. This is something I've been thinking about starting for a long time, but it took a little work to research how best to do it (and it still, of course, is imperfect).

The BLL is intended as an extension of the Movement of the Libertarian Left into, wouldn't you know it, the Blogosphere ... sort of. SEK3 intended the MLL to be anti-political and hostile to "partyarchy." Of course, he was founding a movement, and I'm just starting a webring. I don't plan to impose much in the way of ideological requirements on applicants for webring membership. If you consider yourself a libertarian, and consider yourself on the left end of the political spectrum, then add your site ... I'm content to let the ring's readers/surfers decide for themselves if you represent what they're looking for or not. There are obvious exceptions (a "Ku Klux Klan Libertarian Caucus" just ain't gonna fly), but libertarian Democrats, non-party anti-authoritarian "progressives," the various brands of anarchist and such are all quite welcome.

Let's see what we can build.
