“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

Excerpt From Rosalie’s World
(The Feature Article)

The First Day of School
The First Day of School
[ Kinda how I felt about it—Editor ]
Source: The Patriot Post

It’s 2 parts Marx and 1 part Rosseau. It is
the ignorance and disdain of the moneyed for
what the working class has to do to survive,
coupled with a naive certainty that rural
work is sort of like gardening and beautiful.

The Editor’s Notes
by Ken Holder
For anyone who is skeptical about the claim that many of the ruling elite want us normal people dead: Schumer wants to make it illegal for normal people to own body-armor. (I bet he wears some, though.)

Excerpt From Rosalie’s World
by L. Neil Smith
Author’s Note: Rosalie’s World is the fourth volume of the Ngu Family Saga, which takes us from the terraformed asteroid Pallas, to Mars (see: Ares, forthcoming) to the asteroid Ceres, and now, to humanity’s first extra-solar settlement. Olympic champion Llyra Ngu Trask and her girlhood companion Jasmeen Khalidov Ngu bring their families to pioneer a strange new planet, all the animal life of which is mammalian. Morgan Trask, a Newfoundlander, is the male skating champion Llyra married. Tieve is Wilson’s daughter, whom he and Jasmeen are raising. “Young Emerson” is Lyra’s son, named after his great, great grandfather.

What Are They Teaching The Kids: Dark Satanic Mills Edition
by Sarah A. Hoyt
One of the Marxists—and the unaware-they-are-Marxists-by-indoctrination products of our indoctrination machines, including those who now teach in them—worse lies is the maligning of the industrial revolution.

J. Neil Schulman: A Tribute
by Sean Gangol
I know that this tribute is going to be one of many that will be published on TLE, many of which will be from people who actually knew J. Neil Schulman better than I did. While I never got the honor of meeting Neil in person, he still had an impact on the way I view individual freedom. It was in the year 2001, not too long after I discovered libertarianism through the works of Aaron Zelman and L. Neil Smith, when I had gone through what I call my “flirting with libertarianism period.” I wasn’t sure if I really embraced every aspect of libertarianism and I was constantly looking for more information on the subject. This was also before I discovered the works of Ayn Rand and long before I had even heard of Murray Rothbard. Hell, at the time I didn’t even know of the existence of Reason magazine. At the time I found myself searching for L. Neil Smith’s books that were out of print at second-hand book stores, when I came across J. Neil Schulman’s Alongside Night. At first, I thought it was one of the works of L. Neil Smith, since those two have similar names (common mistake). When I realized my mistake, I decided to read the description on the back, which actually showed that it was indeed a libertarian novel with a story that centered around an economic collapse. After reading the novel, I found myself intrigued by the very idea of a group of anarchists creating an underground network, which provided everything from underground markets to armed resistance against the government. To this day my favorite part of the book and its movie adaptation is the underground mall which sold everything from cannabis to nuclear weapons. Later, I would discover his other great works such as, Rainbow Cadenza and Escape from Heaven.

Adventures in Herpetology: A Day at the Reptil Show and the Almost Perfect Day
Sunday August 4 2019: The Pittsburgh Reptile Show

by Jeff Fullerton
A day is often never anything like what you think it’s going to be. The original plan was to stay home and not go anywhere and make up for yesterday but I ended up going to a reptile show. That decision was made the day before at work when I decided to look and see if there were any shows going on and there was the Pittsburgh one in Cheswick.
