Justice Oliver Wendell Holmes: a Clear and Present Danger

makes some observations regarding Oliver Wendell Holmes's well-known
comment about shouting "fire" in a crowded theater.
I Wish I Were an Iraqi
by William Stone, III
Hats off the hard work and sacrifice of the Americans who liberated the
people of Iraq from an oppressive dictatorship. While no Zero
Aggression Principle philosopher could ever approve of organized
government warfare, on an individual basis, anyone who would help
overthrow a dictatorial government is to be praised. Indeed, it is
that very spirit that will ultimately liberate America.
Now that the Genie is Out of the Bottle ...
by Manuel Miles
... the warmongers are going to have a hell of a time trying to
get him back in again.
The genie just released is not the Anglo/American mad dog of war, but
rather that of an Islamic jihad against the aforementioned puppy. Sure
as shootin' (and bombin' and `friendly firin' and collateral damagin'),
the imperial occupation army is going to be one big, stupid, blundering
target for every Islamic fundamentalist who wants to strike a blow
against the infidel.
Why We Must Discuss a Post-War U.S.: Peace Is Hell
by Wendy McElroy
Discussion buzzes about a post-Saddam Iraq but few people are talking
about a post-Saddam United States. We should be. Because the political
rifts in our society may be as difficult to deal with as the ones with
the Arab world, and they hit closer to home. We need a better approach
for dealing with dissent and diversity.
An Anniversary that We Must Never Forget
by Anthony Gregory
This Saturday, April 19, 2003, is the ten year anniversary of the fiery
culmination of the 51-day standoff between federal officials and the
Branch Davidians at Waco, Texas, in which more than seventy civilians
died, including nearly two dozen children. Many have more or less
forgotten the event, and simply want the rest of us to get over it.
America's Close Call With Educational Disaster
by Rick Triplett
Education in The Land of the Free appears to have had a close call with
disaster. I have dredged the Sargasso Sea of cyberspace to uncover this
arcane bit of history, and I offer it to readers for your edification.
Since it is from the World Wide Web, you know it's true.
