Anti-Virus Pioneer John McAfee Enters Libertarian Party Presidential Race

McAfee talks about his colorful life, why the country needs him, the coming cyberwar, how he has “no trouble getting press” and why, despite supporting public works projects, he was “libertarian before the word.”

John McAfee is the 70-year-old founder of the antivirus software firm that bears his name (though he has not been actively involved with it since 1994, and the company was bought by Intel in 2010). He’s also a colorful world adventurer who has been candid about his extreme exploits in everything from drug use (and sales) to private home antibiotic-tech experimentation.

He is also seeking the presidential nomination of the Libertarian Party (L.P.), he announced last week via an exclusive story in USA Today. (His edgy life in Belize, which ended when he fled the country under suspicion that he was involved in the shooting death of a neighbor, was chronicled in vivid detail in an epic 2012 Wiredmagazine profile.)
