"Gun control is the idea that it's better to see a woman dead in an alley, strangled
with her own pantyhose, than to see her with a gun in her hand."—T.D. Melrose

The Tyranny of Democracy
Majoritarianism Versus Unanimous Consent

by L. Neil Smith
For some time, I've meant to write various legislators, bureaucrats, and other sucklers at the public jugular to say, "Congratulations, assholes—beginning with the most decent, livable culture in history, in just two centuries you've managed, with taxation, regulation, and conscription, to turn it into a prison whose best and brightest inmates, whatever disagreements they may cherish among themselves, are of a single mind when it comes to escaping from it." Everybody wants out: the condition's so uniform and universal hardly anybody sees it, let alone anything strange about it. Even when they do, they miss its central significance.

Suppose There Were a Gang...
by Kent McManigal
Suppose there were a gang... A gang which required members to rape, pillage, and attack people as a condition of membership. A gang which financed all its activities, and bought all its clothing and equipment, with money it stole from the local population. A gang which bragged about driving nice cars stolen from people they attacked. Any member who didn't commit those acts on a regular basis would be kicked out, and quite probably be subject to revenge by the other members.

The Wrong Time
by A.X. Perez
If you ever saw the parody movie Airplane! you may remember Lloyd Bridge's classic line, "Looks like I picked the wrong time to quit (vice of choice)." Now, please understand, I do not believe in gun control. I view it as late stage lung cancer passing itself off as a cure for AIDS. The leaders (including many who stay in the shadows) of the gun control movement are wannabe Schicklgrubers and Dzhugashvilis and their followers at best completely brainwashed dupes and at worst criminals who wish to disarm their victims.

Is There a God?
by Richard Blake
One of my readers has asked whether I believe in God and whether I regard myself as a Christian. This is a highly personal question, and I might feel at liberty not to reply. However, since my novels all deal in various ways with religious matters, I feel I have lost the right to silence. So the short answer to both parts of the question is yes. This being said, I pass to what may be seen as the less than satisfactory details.

Rave Review—Run right out and buy this book!
by Ken Holder
I read a lot. And a lot of books are okay reading, if I get them for free or for a dollar or two from Amazon.com for my Kindle Reader app (my wife uses the real Kindle). But every now and then a book is so good it is like a rushing river roaring over me. This week I had a rushing river roar over me.


If you haven't read/voted go read What Shall I Write Next? by L. Neil Smith.

First a word from Our Founder and Publisher:


For those who have asked about the Libertarian Futurist Society giving me the Special Prometheus Award for Lifetime Achievement, it will occur at MileHiCon 48, at 7:00 p.m., on Friday, October 28, 2016 at the Hyatt Regency Hotel — Tech Center, 7800 E. Tufts Ave., Denver CO

Learn more about the convention at MileHiCon.org
And the Libertarian Futurist Society at LFS.org

According to Rose Beetem, the famous head honcho of MileHiCon, it is scheduled to be part of opening ceremonies Friday evening. There will be autographing Friday night and again on Saturday afternoon. I am also looking over a list of panels it might be fun to be a part of.
