THE LIBERTARIAN ENTERPRISE
Number 137, September 3, 2001
Locke Laid, Gary Gabs
"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." -- L. Neil Smith

Important Message

Special Thanks to the people who consider The Libertarian Enterprise valuable enough to pay for! Your donations will be used to pay the bills to keep this site going!

We tend to think everything on the web is free, but somebody has to pay for it. I've been paying out of my own pocket, and my pocket is starting to come up empty. So I'm asking for donations. Before reading the articles in this week's Enterprise, why not throw a few coins into the hat? It will help keep the weekly issues coming (you'd hate it if you came here one day and it was gone, wouldn't you?). Remember: "There Ain't No Such Thing As A Free Lunch—TANSTAAFL!".

Donate a bit of "spare change" using PayPal—if you don't already have a PayPal account, you'll get a $5 bonus for signing up! (And we'll get a $5 bonus for signing you up—which will help out our cause right there!)

I accept PayPal, the #1 payment service in online auctions!
