Special to L. Neil Smith’s The Libertarian Enterprise
High petroleum prices are helping the Russian government ignore sanctions, fund Putin’s war, and continue to kill Ukrainians.
This week, we have for your delight and edification some letters to the editor.
Next up is the Blast From the Past. These are curated L. Neil Smith articles from past issues (since we don’t have a current email address for him). Nominate your favorite Blast from the Past!
We welcome another article from one of our favorite writers, Sarah Hoyt.
We welcome back British libertarian author and activist Sean Gabb with his take on the Queen’s Jubilee. His take on what the monarchy should be doing for Britons is probably not what the current denizen of Number 10 Downing Street would say — if said denizen has even thought about the question.
Back across the pond, our editor, on an interesting opportunity for Libertarian Party activists in the much neglected state of Wyoming. This week it may seem like we’re picking on the Libertarian Party. Not really, it’s too easy.
We hope you are both amused and enlightened.
Some links for your edification and amusement.
