March of the Medical Marxists
by L. Neil Smith
I'm just like everybody else. For months I listened to and watched "town meetings", originally cobbled together in the home districts of senators and representatives, simply and transparently for the purpose of rubberstamping Barack Obama's obsessive Marxist lust (an obsessive lust he shares with Hillary Clinton and many another tired, threadbare old collectivist) to nationalize an institution that they refer to as "healthcare".

The Influence of the State on Relationships
by Bob Wallace
Genesis told us what it was like without our advanced technology: men worked outdoors and sweated all the time and women were constantly pregnant.

The Zeitgeist of Totalitarianism
by Puck T. Smith
If you are one the three people left in the world who are not familiar with The Zeitgeist Movement or The Venus Project, please move along. For the rest of you I would like to offer two videos for your perusal. Together they will burn up about an hour of your time. I can fully understand why you might not want to watch them, but the following will not make a lot of sense if you don't.

The End of the Minarchist/Anarchist Dispute
by Paul Bonneau
The feud between minarchists and anarchists has come to an end. Most of them just don't realize it yet.

Twenty-three words or less
by Sov. Madison MacBear
Ladies and Gentlemen, Sovereigns and Sentients: And Now, for your Delectation and Delight, I shall attempt to confound Lucille Gallegos Kropotkin (and by proxy, El Neil) by defining, for the first time herein attempted, the difference between religion and mysticism in twenty-three words or less.

Lysenko's Revenge
by L. Neil Smith
Once upon a time, one Trofim Denisovich Lysenko—and I should add that I owe this insight to my good friend and cherished colleague Albert Perez—was a peasant lad who attended a local university and quickly rose to become the supreme galootie of Russian agriculture, all because of a theory of his that clicked with certain aspects of Marxism.

Entrapment and Statutory Crimes
by Jim Davidson
I believe that writing this essay, is the correct thing to do. It is certainly not "diplomatic" or any of the other things you've come to expect me not to care about. It isn't expedient - I'll probably lose some friends, including a few that I really care about. It isn't convenient. The timing sucks in a lot of ways. I'd rather this whole situation had never arisen. But writing this note is the right thing to do, and I believe that I have only one tangible moral obligation: to do what I believe is the right thing to do. I don't think you have any reasonable expectation that I'll do what people expect, or would rather, or think is socially acceptable. Certainly if you've known me for any length of time, you know that I really don't care what anyone thinks, or says, against me.

Egypt, Liberty and Secession
by Russell D. Longcore
Just a moment ago, we saw a televised news report which stated that new Egyptian VP Suleiman went on state TV and announced that Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak was in fact stepping down and handing over governmental power to the military. Back a few days ago, I suggested that Mubarak leave the country and phone in his resignation from safer environs. Well, he's pretty much done that today, except he ran for the eastern palace in posh Sharm al Sheikh, 250 miles from Cairo. From that location, he can go anywhere into exile. Now the hard work begins.

A History of Freedom of Thought
Chapter VII
The Progress of Rationalism
(Nineteenth Century)

by John Bagnell Bury
Modern science, heralded by the researches of Copernicus, was founded in the seventeenth century, which saw the demonstration of the Copernican theory, the discovery of gravitation, the discovery of the circulation of the blood, and the foundation of modern chemistry and physics. The true nature of comets was ascertained, and they ceased to be regarded as signs of heavenly wrath. But several generations were to pass before science became, in Protestant countries, an involuntary arch-enemy of theology. Till the nineteenth century, it was only in minor points, such as the movement of the earth, that proved scientific facts seemed to conflict with Scripture, and it was easy enough to explain away these inconsistencies by a new interpretation of the sacred texts. Yet remarkable facts were accumulating which, though not explained by science, seemed to menace the credibility of Biblical history. If the story of Noah's Ark and the Flood is true, how was it that beasts unable to swim or fly inhabit America and the islands of the Ocean? And what about the new species which were constantly being found in the New World and did not exist in the Old? Where did the kangaroos of Australia drop from? The only explanation compatible with received theology seemed to be the hypothesis of innumerable new acts of creation, later than the Flood. It was in the field of natural history that scientific men of the eighteenth century suffered most from the coercion of authority. Linnaeus felt it in Sweden, Buffon in France. Buffon was compelled to retract hypotheses which he put forward about the formation of the earth in his Natural History (1749), and to state that he believed implicitly in the Bible account of Creation.
