Are We Not Men?
by Patrick K Martin
Well the Supreme Court has done it again, in a case against a deadbeat
dad with nine children and $25Gs in back child support, the court has
returned, without comment, a ruling which will see him thrown in jail
if he should father another child. Now, forgetting the fact that this
industrial-grade sperm-donor is nothing but your run-of-the-mill scum-bag
who lacks the guts to take responsibility for his offspring, or
the intelligence to use contraception. The fact remains that we have
here one more example of the state asserting its right to determine
the course of our lives. It's bad enough that the state will enslave a
man for 18 years because he fathered a child, despite the fact that
the decision to bear the child is made without his consent. Now we are
informed that the state may now incarcerate us for impregnating the
woman in the first place. What is next, compulsory sterilization?
by Carl Bussjaeger
Once I gave the matter rational thought, it seemed perfectly natural
and desirable that women should be armed. Even in my novel, NET
ASSETS, a young woman hefts a '98 Mauser in 8mm to protect herself,
her friends, and her dreams.
State Legislation Protects Abortion Rights
by Wendy McElroy
California has been passing a series of bills that the media has been
calling "landmarks" in the protection of "women's rights."
The measures constitute the most aggressive attempt in recent memory
to entrench "reproductive rights" -- that is, abortion -- into society by force of law.
Vin Visits New Hampshire, Governor 'Horrified'
by Vin Suprynowicz
I was condemned by the governor of New Hampshire last week.
It started when the Libertarian Party of New Hampshire invited me to
give the dinner speech at their annual convention in Nashua last Saturday, Sept. 28.
Jefferson At "The Nation"?: The Left Still Doesn't Get It
by Matthew Hogan
With Leviathan on a global rampage, it is common, though depressing,
to see "The Nation" outperforming "The National Review" in the Challenging Government
Overreach Department. (Anarchists, delete "Overreach" as redundant.) So it is refreshing
to find in a recent "The Nation" (9/30/02) a telling overt reminder of the fundamental
sin of the Left.
