Rational Thoughts On Immigration
by L. Neil Smith
I was in sixth grade when I first saw right wing materials,
pamphlets, booklets, etc., in the library. Everything from the John Birch Society
(which wasn't well thought of in those days) to writings by and about George
Lincoln Rockwell, founder of the American Nazi Party. I wasn't particularly
impressed, but one thing struck me. Most of them, for all that they claimed
to admire and adhere to American values, believed those values were fragile.
One foreigner spoils the population of hundreds of millions. One foreign word
spoils the language. One alien idea spoils the creed. One drop of unwanted blood
spoils the line. Fragile. Frankly, if I had a .45 automatic that was that fragile
I wouldn't bother trading it off, I'd throw it in a lake, somewhere.
Not a Rant
by A.X. Perez
Gleaned from two weeks of gun news: Members of Oath Keepers
showed up at Ferguson, Missouri, armed to protect various people. They offered
to provide arms for self defense to protesters (thus shooting down, you should
pardon the expression, of various left wing groups that the Oath Keepers are the
KKK repackaged). Several protesters suggested that the OK guys were meshuggeneh,
that while white men could walk the streets with "assault rifles" and pistols,
Black People trying the same would get killed. If this is true we have a long
way to go in civil rights. Of course, leftists would argue this means Whites
should be disarmed same same Blacks. Equal oppression for all is equality, right?
Death in Ravenna
by Richard Blake
September 618 AD. The Byzantine Empire is losing its war with
Persia. Syria and Egypt are occupied. The Balkans are lost. Italy is going, one
bite at a time, to the Lombards. The Catholic Church is already an independent
power. At 15, Rodi is the youngest agent in the Byzantine secret service. He's in
Ravenna to find dirt on an Exarch suspected of having his hand in the till. His
mission goes exactly to plan—until a freak accident leads to murder and the
uncovering of a plot no one in Constantinople had thought possible.
Calling a Halt to Jihad
by L. Neil Smith
A few years ago, former congressman and conservative activist Tom
Tancredo, the most interesting man in Colorado politics, especially Republican politics,
made a suggestion about dealing with radical Islam. Another attack, he warned, like the
one on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon in 2001, and the Air Force should reduce
the city of Mecca, to which every devout Moslem is supposed to make a pilgrimage at
least once in his life, to a radioactive glass parking lot.
We Were Betrayed
by Kyle Smith
We were betrayed. After months of mobilization and a tidal wave of
grassroots pressure, the people of Texas made it clear that nothing less than
Constitutional Carry would be accepted. But late last week, Constitutional Carry was
stonewalled without so much as a vote.
The Power to Issue Money
by Jim Davidson
One of the really important questions you should think about is: Who
should have the power to issue money? Now, a great many of you probably haven't thought
about this question, ever. After all, since the beginning of recorded history, various
types of governments, including republics, kings, priest-kings, and dictatorships have
issued money. If you open up your wallet, you probably find some paper money in there
issued by some government, or on behalf of a central bank that is authorised by some
government. Very likely, you also have some credit or debit cards issued by banks or
credit unions, but these are only corporate extensions of governments, so not really
that different. My wallet has a couple of Ron Helwig's Shire silver and gold wire cards, too.
L. Neil Smith personally recommends Climate Depot
as the best general source of infomation on the subject.
Some readers have noted and commented on the fact that we
have terminated the comic strip Atlantea the Beautiful. I
won't hide behind the journalistic "we"—I made the
decision, not for no reason.
It was a decision I felt regret over. Atlantea has been
around in one form or another, since the administration of
President George H. W. Bush, whom co-author and artist Rex
May and I lampooned as "Firstman Shrubb" (his son became
Firstman Twigg). We did silly strips about his wife
Barbaria, and his Secondman, whom we named after some bird
or other. We introduced Eljor, Prophet of Doom, naming him
for Superman's dad spelled sideways. In those days he
resembled Andre Marrou.
However, over the past year or so, the strip's content, now
mostly controlled by Rex, due to increasing poor health and
growing fatigue on my part, came more and more to reflect
Rex's views, with which I didn't want to be associated.
During that interval, readers complained we were publishing
a racist, xenophobic strip and Rex made it plain in other
venues that they were not mistaken. As I have said elsewhere
in this issue of The Libertarian Enterprise, I have long
been in favor of open immigration; it's one reason I'm a
libertarian, not a conservative.
However Rex was a good friend of a lifetime's standing. I
made excuses for him and cut as wide a path as I could for
him for as kong as I could. The last strip we ran accused me
of being an idiot and took other cheap shots at me and those
who share my views, and I was aware that elsewhere, Rex was
calling the Zero Aggression Principle, the very foundation
of everything ethical I believe, into question. He was
quoting Charles Murray, author of The Bell Curve and a
student of racial differences, in ways Murray himself has
asked people not to do. Enough was enough. I created The
Libertarian Enterprise as a platform for liberty-oriented
free speech, not racist neofascism and coercion.
And so, without apology, we say a sad farewell to Atlantea
the Beautiful in the virtual pages of The Libertarian
Enterprise. We'll try to find something just as funny --
and completely ethical—to replace it. Some observers may
accuse me of censorship—which I have battled all my life
-- but this is my publication; I will not support ideas that
get others beaten up and killed because they want a better

Revenge Of The Nerds: SciFi Fights Back Against Social Justice
by Mick Warshaw
The petty tyrants of the Social Justice Warrior movement have
been active in nearly every corner of our modern culture,
seeking to disqualify and discredit people without the
requisite bona fides to satisfy the SJW movement's strange
calculus of race, sex, and sexuality politics.
The funny thing about "Social Justice" is There Ain't No Such
Thing As Social Justice (TANSTASJ!). And, people who call
themselves "Social Justice Warriors" are not advocating
justice of any kind, but rather totalitarian dictatorship.
Finally, this issue contains the return of Jim Davidson,
who first wrote for us in issue number 3 (December 1995)!
Welcome back, Jim! And the return of L. Neil Smith. Welcome
