Jeremy was one of the first to pick up the classical (minimum state) liberalism in Popper’s political philosophy, where it is somewhat obscured by the more obvious social democratic elements. Jeremy has been based in Canberra for several years so he is a kind of honourary Aussie. The Austrian-born Popper was also a kind of ANZAC because he was in New Zealand from 1937 to 1945 on an extended working holiday. In his spare time he wrote The Open Society and its Enemies which was his contribution to the war effort. He was barred from participating in uniform on account of his “enemy alien” status.
