Special to L. Neil Smith’s The Libertarian Enterprise

Once again, The Libertarian Enterprise brings you the finest in libertarian writing. This week, we have letters from Albert Perez and Jeff Fullerton. In our blast from the past, L. Neil Smith takes time off from excoriating the state and talks about why he likes baseball. And then comes back to excoriating the state.

Sarah A. Hoyt takes on the "-ists trap". The trap whereby feminism, anti-racism, environmentalism, etc. trap their "beneficiaries" into further servitude.

Speaking of falling into the traps of an "ism", Sean Gangol takes on the hysteria surrounding the Dobbs decision that overturned Roe v. Wade

In other news, Burning Man tickets should now be on sale.
