Letters from William Stone III, Warren Tilson, and Your Mother:
Public Schools Have Destroyed America
An Invitation from L. Neil Smith
If you're like me, even through a fairly hard shell of cynicism about
such things -- acquired through years of disappointment in our country
and our fellow human beings -- you are shocked and dismayed at the
casual way Americans have been stripped of their few remaining rights
over the past 17 months and stampeded straight to World War III.
To All The Rich Libertarians; A Modest Proposal
by Patrick K Martin
I've been thinking (a dangerous practice which my wife discourages),
most of us agree that it's too late to fix the system, and too soon to
shoot the bastards, so what do we do in the meantime?
All The Time In The World
by William Stone, III
The elimination of government is human creativity unchained.
Under any form of government, individuals aren't free to persue their
own best interests. For example, far too much of my time is spent on
projects designed to teach others the benefits of embracing the Zero
Aggression Principle. I'm writing a book on the ZAP. I formed an
organization devoted to popularizing and teaching the ZAP. I write
weekly columns that evolve around the ZAP. I engage in private e-mail
discussions about aspects of the ZAP.
Boston Free Party
by W. James Antle III
The Libertarian Party is not exactly known for its electoral successes.
Libertarian candidates lose most elections badly and those few that they
do win tend to be for local offices. They have never held more than a
handful of state legislative seats and have yet to win election to
Congress - Ron Paul, the 1988 Libertarian presidential candidate has
served in the House from 1977 to 1985 and again since 1997 as a
Republican. The Libertarian Party's high watermark in presidential
elections over the last 30 years was the 1.1 percent of the vote Ed
Clarke won in 1980.
Juries Have The Power To Rein In Government
by Alexander Daube
America is at war. Our nation is locked in a war for ideas that will end
with either a return to true freedom and limited government, or rule by
despots. While most Americans have their heads in the sand, our
government is progressively reducing our rights to mere privileges and
our constitutional guarantees to confetti, with no end in sight.
Ten Years After: The Waco Declaration
by Jim Davidson
Ten years ago today on 28 February 1993 the United States federal
government began to implement a declared war. That war is not on some
distant battlefield, it is not in some foreign country. It is here. In
our country. Among us. Our children see this war carried out with their own eyes.
Stalker Tips: How To Deal With A Stalker
by Wendy McElroy
The experience of being stalked is more common than people realize,
perhaps because most victims do not report the ordeal. According to a report by the U.S.
Department of Justice, "8.1 percent of surveyed women and 2.2 percent of
surveyed men reported being stalked at some time in their life.... A
woman is 3 times more likely to be stalked than raped." And
"approximately 1 million women and 371,000 men are stalked annually in the United States."
It's The Government Schools, Not The Guns
by Todd Andrew Barnett
Amy Fisher, the former convicted teenage felon who shot to fame in the
early 1990s by shooting Mary Jo Buttafuoco in the head and had an
intimate affair with her mechanic husband Joey Buttafuoco, publicly
declared her intention to "work for organizations" whose goal is to
"prevent" handguns from falling into the hands of children.
