“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 World Turned Upside-Down
by L. Neil Smith
Sometimes—rarely—we are afforded a lightning flash of clarity before the murky clouds of history roll back over us again. If you want to know the most significant fact of the past two-hundred fifty years, it is this: on October 19th, 1781, following their humiliating defeat at the Battle of Yorktown at the hands of American Revolutionary forces, the surrendering British command ordered their military band to play a song called ”The World Turned Upside-Down”. (Ironically, given current events, the song was originally a popular protest against Parliament’s puritanical order not to celebrate Christmas in the traditional, boisterous, merry, and colorful English way.)

When The King Comes Home
by Sarah A. Hoyt
The week after the election, I was very disappointed in an acquaintance that I both like and respect intellectually. As I was saying that if we let this election stand, the republic is gone, he said if our institutions were already corrupt enough to let this stand, the republic has been gone a long time, perhaps our whole life. I was angry, because well…. Because I prefer people spit out the black pill. Sure, maybe the game is rigged, but as RAH put it, if you don’t bet you can’t win. As it turns out, we were both right, but mostly wrong.

Reply To Joe Biden’s “Call For Unity”
Found On Twitter
Here is my little bitty small issue with the whole, “Let us all be a United States” again, from Joe Biden. For the last four+ years, you Democrats have gone scorched Earth.

The European Union Trade and Cooperation Treaty: A Very Brief Review
by Sean Gabb
I know that many of my friends have looked at the massive block of text that is the final agreement of our withdrawal from the European Union, and decided that we have been tricked again. My own preference would have been for a complete break, followed by unilateral free trade abroad and a libertarian revolution at home. However, I have taken the trouble to read the text—not, I accept, with the fullest attention: it is, after all, 1,246 pages long. There may be hidden traps that my reading has overlooked. Certainly, the reality of any agreement is less its wording than the approach the various sides take to implementing it. Even so, what my reading suggests is that this is somewhere between passingly acceptable and a diplomatic triumph.

FREEDOM AGENDA 21: Resolve To Grow Freedom & Weaken The Beast Through Agorism
by Mike Swatek
Each of us can easily expand our fight for individual freedom in the new year. You can do many of the things shared below. In a nutshell, this includes anything, big or small, which weakens the state, its crony corporations or its global financial power-mad masters, altogether herein called, “the beast”. If we all resolve to do this, we will become freer, especially in our own lives.

Art of Liberty
by Jim Davidson
Last week, I was invited to visit Lake Havasu, Arizona for a gathering of voluntaryists. There was camping at Craggy Wash. There was a bed and breakfast in town. Nice swimming pool, but very cold when I jumped in. Nobody heats swimming pools in that part of Arizona.

2020: On the Whole, Rather a Good Year
by Sean Gabb
I could make a review of this passing year into a litany of complaint. My opening would be that England is clearly a place where the authorities can lie their heads off and be believed by a nation of sheep. But, while England clearly is that place, when was it ever different—here or anywhere else? The Coronavirus is only the latest turn in a game between abused and abusers played out in every time and place. Those of us who want no part in the game, I suggest, should give up whining about facemasks and iffy vaccines, and try to look on the bright side. This latest turn in the game, after all, has not been attended by any act of mass-murder, or by some uncommon lack of rationality. Instead, there has been a bright side to 2020—if only we care to look for it, a very bright side.

Secret of the Rosary, by St. Louis de Montfort
Revewed by Jim Davidson
My own experience with the rosary began in the Summer of 2020 when I experienced a very strong leading to go buy a rosary. At the time, I was still living in Dayton, Ohio, so I found a nice store downtown that had them in stock.

Norseman’s Diaries: I’m Dreaming of a Green Christmas & Prelude to The Forces of Nature
by Jeff Fullerton
With Christmas approaching this week my thoughts were on the weather which has turned quite nasty the previous week with a snow blitz that began one evening while I was at work and made for a very rough ride home that I was lucky enough to get within reasonable walking distance of my door.
