“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

My Object All Sublime
by L. Neil Smith
I have been writing about individualism and the politics of individual liberty for almost sixty years, now. In all of that time, although I am a staunch, almost lifelong libertarian and consider myself an anarcho-capitalist (Truth in advertising: there are many puckered sphincters in the movement who might disagree, owing to my support for President Donald J. Trump.), I have proposed many a law and even a few Constitutional amendments. Hey, I have layers.

Individual Lives Matter
by Sarah A. Hoyt
If you think that saying “All Lives Matter” somehow diminishes the fact that black lives matter, you might have a chunk of Marx in your eye. You might also be a stone cold racist.

Universal Basic Income:
Some Political and Economic Advantages

by Sean Gabb
My vision of Utopia has remained constant since I was thirteen. It is a nation of free citizens, keeping jealous watch over a state strong enough to defend the borders and keep a minimal internal peace, but restricted from doing anything else. Sadly, this vision is further out of reach today than when I was thirteen. The modern British State is a vastly extended despotism, limited only by incompetence and corruption. It is also a despotism to which the majority of people, with whatever success and at whatever overall cost, look for immediate benefits. Libertarians and conservatives may dream of a coup in which the present order of things will be torn apart and replaced with something more natural and sustainable. But we might more usefully dream of winning the Lottery or being offered three wishes by a fairy. Any scheme of change requires the acceptance that, even if it can somehow be captured, the British State cannot in the short and medium term be minimised.

Once Upon a Time in Chicago
by TJ Mason
Chad nervously clutched the piece of paper he held in his shaking fingers. He was dirty and unkempt—a typical person of the Chicago streets. But he had been picked up by bus that morning and brought to this precinct house with twelve of his fellows, each told that if they went into this precinct and voted using the name written on the paper in his hands, then did it again five more times during the course of the day, he would get two hot meals, $50, and a bottle of whiskey for his troubles.

The Federal Reserve For Dummies
by Jim Carter
“What difference does an increase in the National Debt make? We owe it to ourselves.” virtually every congress-critter has declared. Such a paraphrased program gives the federal government/ congress purchasing power not previously available—to buy votes from home. Unfortunately, the inflation created dilutes the purchasing power and value of assets owned by individuals. The system also conceals the immense transfer of value to bankers, which has justified the intense subterfuge and arm-twisting necessary for the Fed’s creation—that this paper exposes. The inherent destructive forces, evidenced by historic Rothschild banking1 and mathematical analysis, are also identified.

Want Total Freedom and No Responsibility? Be a Democrat!
by Mike Blessing
Apparently, being a Democrat makes you immune to the Beer Bug. Who knew? This immunity doesn’t seem to discriminate between the lefty-fascist "progressive" kind, the "conservative" or "libertarian" kind or the Republican-wannabe Establishment kind.
