June 16 is Adam Smith's birthday ... maybe. Britannica says he was baptized on June 5, 1723, without giving a birthdate. Several other sources say he was born on June 16. Probably it's an old calendar vs. new calendar issue, but the 11-day difference would work only if Smith was baptized on the day of his birth, which would have been unusual.

Liberdon is a Mastodon instance for libertarians, ancaps, anarchists, voluntaryists, agorists, etc to sound off without fear of reprisal from jack or zuck. It was created in the wake of the Great Twitter Cullings of 2018, when a number of prominent libertarian accounts were suspended or banned.
