The Libertarian Enterprise
Number 45, May 1, 1999
"A libertarian is a person who believes that no one has the right,
under any circumstances, to initiate force against another human

not libertarians, regardless of what they may claim."

edition to them, and to some articles that came in after deadline.

government's reaction goes. It was all too predictable. The Emperor
Bill performed as expected and failed to disappoint, as did the
usual cast of nefarious characters with whom he surrounds himself
during times of political hay-making. But nobody anticipated scenes
such as this (at least publicly):
"No one has showed up at Kimball wearing a black trench coat or
threatening to blow up the school. But, Knapp said, students are
still streaming into her office to report peers they think may be

dead. The rest just want further restrictions on our ability to make

percentage of our life's effort to making them
