Jefferson's Promise, Smith's Fulfillment
July 4th Reflections on the 30th Anniversary of the
Covenant of Unanimous Consent
by Dennis Wilson
L. Neil Smith's Covenant of Unanimous Consent actually FULFILLS the
promise of individual freedom in Thomas Jefferson's Declaration of Independence. The
Covenant is simple, rational, personal, easy to understand and even short enough to
memorize. It easily fits on one side of a single piece of paper--and is currently
available in English, Spanish, French and German!
Europe: The Age of Globalism, 1999-2016 (?)
by Sean Gabb
I spoke earlier with a friend who lives in Bath. He told me how, in
1999, he sat on the Berlin Wall as it was being torn down, and how, last Thursday, he
went and voted to leave the European Union. Writing history before it has happened is
particularly unwise. We have not left the European Union. We have not even notified our
intention to leave, and no one knows what settlement will eventually be reached, or
if other member states will decide to leave as well. This being said, it may be that
future historians will regard the time bounded by these two events as forming a distinct
epoch, different in its tone and assumptions from what went before and what came after.
The Rhetoric Remains the Same
by Sean Gangol
Recently there was a horrible shooting that occurred at a gay night
club in Orlando where forty-nine people were killed and fifty-three wounded and it is
now known as the worst mass shooting in the history of the United States. I remember
first hearing about the atrocity when I woke up on Sunday for my daily ritual of
listening to the news while eating my breakfast and drinking my cup of Joe. As soon
as I heard that nearly fifty people had been killed, I knew that it wasn't your run of
the mill shooting. It was quite obviously an act of terrorism. I also knew that there
would be people who would try to milk this tragedy for whatever it was worth.
Movie Review: Independence Day II: The Resurgence
by Jeff Fullerton
Nearing the end of a day at work last Friday I was wrangling the
decision for some long overdue R&R; Contemplating the Independence Day sequel which
was coming out that very night. Ended up going to see it and did the New City Buffet
on the way. Was hoping to write a movie review also—if I could find the time that
weekend. I didn't; on the account it being rather busy between the new Double Decker
Turtle Pen project, managing the merger of two chicken flocks and a number of other
things demanding my time and attention. And the delay turns out to be a good thing in
the way of timing this review for the weekend of the 4th as we are about to celebrate
the Real Independence Day.
The Declaration of Independence of The United States of America
IN CONGRESS, July 4, 1776
The unanimous Declaration of the thirteen united States of America
When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one
people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and
to assume, among the Powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which
the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions
of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.

What Shall I Write Next?
by L. Neil Smith.
We often hear about how starting/running a business can
be a nightmare. Here is a report about just that:
Government, Destroyer of Jobs
And look at this this:
Seventh Circuit Court Judge Richard Posner this week: "I
see absolutely no value to a judge of spending decades,
years, months, weeks, day, hours, minutes, or seconds
studying the Constitution, the history of its enactment,
its amendments, and its implementation. Eighteenth-century
guys, however smart, could not foresee the culture,
technology, etc., of the 21st century. ... Which means
that the original Constitution, the Bill of Rights ...
do not speak to today."
This Constitution, and the Laws of the United States
which shall be made in Pursuance thereof; and all
Treaties made, or which shall be made, under the
Authority of the United States, shall be the supreme
Law of the Land; and the Judges in every State shall
be bound thereby, any Thing in the Constitution or
Laws of any State to the Contrary notwithstanding.
—Constitution of the United States, Article VI,
Since Judge Posner has sworn a mighty oath to
support and defend this constitution—for which
he express contempt, so he obviously has no
intention of supporting or defending it—it
looks to me like he just resigned his judgeship,
due to inability to follow his oath. Am I right?
