from Jim Keech, Curt Howland, Paul Bonneau, A.X. Perez, and Kent McManigal

A Matter of Definition
by L. Neil Smith
I couldn't really tell you why I've made a habit for the past several years of reading LewRockwell.com every morning, right after I read Matt Drudge, when Lew Rockwell himself is a self-described born-again Roman Catholic, and therefore a mystic, which renders the quality of his reasoning processes highly suspect (equally true of anyone who sees fairies at the bottom of his garden), as far as I'm concerned.

Honouring SEK3
by Jim Davidson
Samuel Edward Konkin III, or SEK3 as he was affectionately known (and often signed his e-mails), was born 8 July 1947. As the father of agorism, his work in creating new understanding should be more widely known.

Pistols as Equalizers
by Bob Wallace
I once had a girlfriend who decided to be a libertarian and therefore also decided that firearms are good things. Unfortunately, sometimes, there is a disconnect between what one thinks and what one feels.

Why We Hate Cops
by Paul Bonneau
I remember the first time I heard anyone in "regular" society express hatred for cops (I'm not counting "revolutionary" times back in the '60's which on retrospect appear not to have been very serious). It was a friend of mine, a fellow engineer, who happened to like going fast on motorcycles, and he was complaining about a ticket he'd gotten. I was a bit shocked to hear him say that. I had thought until then of cops basically as decent people with an important job to do, with maybe a few "bad apples". I was pretty naive back then.

Sick to Your Stomach
by Jim Davidson
Last year, according to one of the weasels in Congress, seventy-six million Americans had a tummy-ache from something they ate. Accordingly, a new bill is making its way through both houses of Congress to thwart individual liberty, interfere in the market, prevent you from growing your own food, prevent you from trading food with your neighbours, and force you to have a national identity chip on all your livestock, among its many other horrid provisions. You know, because some people got some tummy aches.
