"Sunshine Week Shame: 10 Ways the Government Is Opaque"
by David Kravets
As Sunshine Week sets, it's a good time to take a quick inventory
of the federal government's ongoing failures of transparency.

MapLight.org, which tracks the influence of money in politics,
ran down the opacity the public confronts at every level of
government—from antiquated campaign-finance reporting
requirements to Freedom of Information Act shortfalls.

Hip Deep in the Big Sandy
by L. Neil Smith
I woke up one morning last week to discover that, thanks to a marriage of convenience between Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton and a number of Republicans—starting with Sarah Palin—President Barack Hussein Obama has authorized the American military to take part in establishing a "no fly zone" across Libya, ostensibly in support of individuals in rebellion against longtime dictator Moammar Gadhafi.

The Crackpots Who Rule Us
by Bob Wallace
For many years I have been wondering about the relationship between the rulers and the ruled. With a nod to C. Wright Mills, I have decided many those who gravitate towards the State are merely crackpots. Or as Mills termed them, "crackpot realists."

I Like Big Knives:
The Nepalese Kukri

by L. Neil Smith
Growing up in the military, in the shadow of World War II, I saw lots of strange and fascinating things around the neighborhood and in school. If the same rules had applied back in the 1950s that are in force today, all of my friends and I would still be in prison under official "zero tolerance" prohibitions against anything that was interesting or fun.

When Politicians Play Ghod

by Ulrich Biele
The latest earthquake in Japan was a terrific disaster which concerns every Japanese—and with but slight delay—every living creature on this planet.

The Original Free State Project
by Jim Davidson
It all began with the abrogation of the Compromise of 1850. Territory for the states of Kansas and Colorado, among others, was provided to the United States by the state of Texas in the 1850 compromise for the purpose of securing funds to pay off the war debts of the former Republic of Texas. The Kansas-Nebraska act of 1854 was designed to break the Missouri compromise, abrogate the compromise of 1850, and inflame sectional controversy. These things it did.

Ultimate Authority
by L. Neil Smith
An enormous amount of fluff has been floated by all sides of every issue over the concept of the United States Constitution as a "social contract". Most pertinent, in all likelihood, to those individuals who call themselves libertarians, are the curious notions, stated in a little pamphlet, still in print, called No Treason: the Constitution of No Authority, of a 19th century abolitionist lawyer with a splendidly sprawling beard, as well as the splendidly sprawling name of Lysander Spooner.

Individual Sovereign University Events
by Jim Davidson
The Individual Sovereign University founding fiesta was great fun for all involved. We had excellent speakers, a great hotel for the occasion, plenty of good people, and conversations about everything—no holds barred. You can visit our web site at IndSovU.com for details on the conference, what was planned. We're also accepting deposits for the upcoming shows. I'll be posting more details about the conference here in this note, starting with Gary Chartier's speech and running right through to the dead dog party.
