Chalk One Up For The Good Guys!
Shaun Lee: Saturday, January 8, 2010

by William Stone III
As many of you know by now, the last 24 hours have been extremely harsh on Shaun Lee. It would have been considerably harsher, had it not been for the combined, spontaneous efforts of libertarians, anarcho-capitalists, and freedom-lovers around the world.

The Curious Case of the Walking M-16s
by L. Neil Smith
In any country with free and conscientious news media, this story would generate eight-inch newspaper headlines and TV interrupted for bulletins. In the United States of Socialist America, the result is silence. If the United Nations and the Federal Communications Commission had their way, you wouldn't be reading this account, but only what they allowed you to see and hear. Aspiring fascist dictator Janet Napolitano would have me arrested in a midnight raid as a "domestic extremist" for writing this, and you for reading it. If it were up to Governor Jay Rockefeller, the Internet itself would never have been invented. Barack Obama would have your ISP tattooed on your forearm.

The State as Vampire
by Bob Wallace
The "State," strictly speaking, does not exist. The word is a short-hand, a convenient fiction. What does exist are several groups of people, the "elites" (I use the term neutrally) who have gained political power over everyone else, and use that power to economically exploit everyone.

Do You Deserve Liberty?
by Russell D. Longcore
I bought a Corvette back in 2006. After that, I noticed all the other Corvettes on the road that I'd ignored before that. Haven't you had similar experiences? You become aware of a certain thing, and from then on, you notice it every time you encounter it. Well I promise after today, every time you hear or see the word "deserve" used, you'll never think about it the same way again. One of those words that tightens my colon is the word "deserve."

Bound by the Past
by Jim Davidson
If you go to the zoo or the circus, or even a farm in rural India, Thailand, or other parts of Asia, you may find elephants in captivity. These very large, gentle, and powerful creatures are really quite agreeable to working with humans. Yet they are often tethered by very little more than a rope.

A History of Freedom of Thought
Chapter II
Reason Free (Greece and Rome)

by John Bagnell Bury
WHEN we are asked to specify the debt which civilization owes to the Greeks, their achievements in literature and art naturally occur to us first of all. But a truer answer may be that our deepest gratitude is due to them as the originators of liberty of thought and discussion. For this freedom of spirit was not only the condition of their speculations in philosophy, their progress in science, their experiments in political institutions; it was also a condition of their literary and artistic excellence. Their literature, for instance, could not have been what it is if they had been debarred from free criticism of life. But apart from what they actually accomplished, even if they had not achieved the wonderful things they did in most of the realms of human activity, their assertion of the principle of liberty would place them in the highest rank among the benefactors of the race; for it was one of the greatest steps in human progress.

Insourcing the Outsourcers
from L. Neil Smith
This is a great idea... not only to possibly bring jobs back to the US but to help with your own sanity. Can't tell you the number of times I have been beyond frustration when reaching a foreign phone rep and neither of us is able to clearly understand the other.
