“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

Letters to the Editor
from A.X. Perez

Why Am I So Mean To Democrats?
by L. Neil Smith
A friend and colleague asked me that question recently. He was far from the first. However, anyone who has been reading my writing for a long while will tell you that, at least until the advent of Donald J. Trump, I have been as thoroughly hard on Republicans as Democrats. And they deserve it. What most Republicans—gutless and short-sighted—don’t deserve is a Donald Trump.

Keep Your Eyes Open
by Sarah A. Hoyt
I had a dream I was being lined up against a wall and blindfolded. Which must account for my being here, stark awake at 5 in the morning, I suppose. Only what woke me was “Why the blindfold? I don’t need a blindfold. I want to see.”

What is “Spaceport America” but a Political Classhole Slush-Fund?

Prayer Warrior
by Jim Davidson
We are in a war. This war has many aspects. Long ago, the publisher of The Libertarian Enterprise and author of dozens of really great books, L. Neil Smith, pointed out that we are in a culture war, and if you want to win such a war, you have to have a culture. Very happily, libertarians, voluntaryists, anarcho-capitalists, and science fiction enthusiasts have a culture with many strong and great ideas. Vital among these ideas is the zero aggression principle. Also vital: the covenant of unanimous consent—a majority, even a "super majority" cannot impose consent on those who dissent. Ever.

A Word on “Cultural Marxism”
by Sean Gabb
It seems that Conservative politicians are now forbidden to use the term Cultural Marxism. The alleged reason is that it describes a Jewish conspiracy theory. The Cultural Marxist hypothesis traces the rise of political correctness and the growing use, both formal and informal, of political censorship to a group of neo-Marxists collectively known as the Frankfurt School. Since these neo-Marxists were mainly Jewish, the claim is that anyone using the term has to be anti-semitic. I accept that some who use the term have ethnic origins uppermost in their minds. Most, however, do not, but are trying to understand the connection between ideas and political action. Melanie Phillips, indeed, one of the most liberal users of the term, is herself Jewish. Whether she must now be defined as an anti-semite I leave to others. What cannot be doubted is that, wherever it started, there is an increasing censorship of political opinion, and that both Britain and America are sliding into a strange sort of outsourced totalitarianism—a totalitarianism that has no basis in written law, but proceeds by way of omnipresent propaganda and the sacking of anyone who refuses to agree with what the propaganda claims.

Solace for the Self-Quelled
by L. Neil Smith
Some time ago, I wrote a little book in which there was a group of people (they were far too ineffectual to designate them as “villains”) I called the “self-quelled”, a collection of primitive environmentalists who couldn’t live with the guilt of taking up space and breathing oxygen. Their only purpose in life was to make everybody around them as miserable as they were—by force, if necessary.
