The Libertarian Enterprise

Number 52, July 31, 1999


"A libertarian is a person who believes that no one has the right, under any circumstances, to initiate force against another human being, or to advocate or delegate its initiation. Those who act consistently with this principle are libertarians, whether they realize it or not. Those who fail to act consistently with it are not libertarians, regardless of what they may claim."

Editor's Notes
by John Taylor
TLE@johntaylor.org

          Originally, I had planned some scathing comments on the death of the much-beloved-by-the-media John-John. But I've decided to leave the bathotic commemoration to just the title of this issue and be done with it.

          I would like to extend my special thanks to Joseph Farah for allowing me to reprint his excellent article, TRUST THE GOVERNMENT? If you haven't done so already, check out WorldNetDaily at http://www.worldnetdaily.com Though conservative at its base, the daily contains numerous articles that are libertarian in nature, including: an always-excellent exclusive column by the lovely and talented Claire Wolfe; exclusive columns from Alan Bock; and special offerings from Lew Rockwell, Thomas Sowell, Walter Williams, and some truly dangerous-sounding fire-breather named Suprynowicz. Check it out!
