Here we are again. I don't know about you but I shore am suffering from
that ol' Globular Heating. Obviously we need to vote for somebody like
Al Gore or Big Gay Al to fix it. Yeah, right.
Anyway, here it is, almost the end of the month, and there hasn't been
much in the way of Reader Supported Cash Money Donations in the kitty.
No doubt it's that "improved" economy where everybody becomes poor,
except for the ruling class. Since the ruling class doesn't read
TLE I guess we're screwed? If you're a Reader with a bit of
spare change, why not throw it into the hat? We're dancing as fast
as we can:

The Joy of Freedom
by Jim Davidson
Something fun is happening in the mountains of Wyoming,
Idaho, and Montana. Many signs suggest it is going to spread through Alberta,
Western "Canada," and Alaska, as well as into other parts. There is a movement
afoot, toward greater freedom, self-sovereignty, and prosperity. As TE Lawrence
once said, "It's going to be fun."
Humans are inclined to submit to authority: Oh really?
by Christopher Awuku
I have been a libertarian for the past four years.
Within the past 6-12 months, my views have altered from being minarchist
to market anarchist/anarcho-capitalist in character. I realised to myself
that if no one is permitted to initiate force against the person
and/or property, then this naturally includes governments. In essence, I
was logically applying and extending base libertarian principles.
World War III
by Jonathan David Morris
It's funny how many people seem to think the
burgeoning war between Israel and Lebanon is the start
of World War III. Maybe "funny" isn't the right word to use here.
Hezbollah decided to play Milk Carton with a couple of
Israeli soldiers; Israel decided to play Blow Up
Critical Infrastructure in response. The two have been
setting off fantastic, Fourth of July-style firework
shows against each other ever since. If this conflict
grows to include the whole regionand eventually
multiple continentsthere will be decidedly little
that's "funny" about it.
Looking beyond Nuclear
by Sean Gabb
An easy answer to the question of nuclear power is to ask what Tony Blair thinks
about it. Since he has now said he likes it, and since everything he says or
does is bad, we have an answer. I feel, however, this answer might gain by a
more formal demonstration.
We Need to Talk
by Lady Liberty
When people notice that the government is trampling
all over their rights, they don't like it much. They protest. They make
calls and write letters. Horror of horrors, they show up in their
representatives' offices or speak up at public meetings and demand
explanations and relief. Sometimes, they even vote en mass and craft
change as a result. When people notice that the government is trampling
all over their rights, they jump up and down until it stopsor at
least until they're offered some kind of mitigation (all too often mere
sops, but the point is still valid).
The Great Blogosphere Brawl
by Wendy McElroy
Weblogs or blogs reveal the emotions churning beneath
the surface of hard news. For example, journalists may report which
legislation passed the House by what margin, but bloggers will lay bare
the ideological brawls that underlie the news item. Over the last two
weeks, the blogosphere has buzzed about a bare-knuckled incident that
provides a glimpse at how relations between left and right have
deteriorated in some circles.
