The Warfare-Welfare Party vs. the Welfare-Warfare Party
by Anthony Gregory
Aren't you excited? In not much longer than a year we as Americans
have the privilege to participate in the most righteous of all human
activities -- voting! I've been taught my whole life by government
schools and television that not only is voting a fundamental right,
it is the most important one. As long as your vote, along with a
hundred million others or so, is counted according to a somewhat
coherent set of rules, and as long as you voted for one of the two
parties that are significant, and as long as when the votes are all
counted and recounted and the Supreme Court or whoever makes the
final decision you were part of the process, you can't complain.
Professional Paranoid, Part III
by William Stone, III
I'd like to examine the real enemy of freedom in the United
States. It's neither terrorists nor Middle Eastern religious nuts.
Enemies Foreign and Domestic by Matthew Bracken
Reviewed by Dean Weingarten
I received my copy of Enemies Foreign And Domestic on Tuesday
evening last week. By Thursday morning, I had devoured the 568 pages.
This book was eagerly awaited, as it belongs to that small but growing
genre, the dystopic future brought about by civil war over the
Constitution of the United States, triggered by ruthless suppression
of the 2nd amendment.
The Personal is Personal
by Wendy McElroy
Privacy rights are being battered these days, largely in response to
increased security fears. National ID, biometric identifiers, airport
screening, increased surveillance powers... all these measures ring
alarm bells for privacy advocates. But such advocates ignore a
fundamental assault on privacy, which has nothing to do with security
concerns: the belief that the Personal is Political.
