L. Neil Smith didn't even mention that the Anecdotal woman and her Anecdotal friends and co-workers who may well have been packing and returned fire on the anecdotal whack-job, assuming a truly free country.

Which was the point I was sort of looking for. Oh well.

Hi there!

I'm a reader of The Libertarien Enterprise and I'm wondering if the bigger brains here on this site could help me out with intellectual ammo. This is the situation that is confounding me. . .

http://www.jsonline.com/story/index.aspx?id=361410

I realize that this happened a while ago, but the problem nags me; I could argue against unlawful imprisonment all day; but how do I argue with a statist out of doing something like this, when a State seemed to be the only thing to get this woman to take her meds? Any help appreciated.

Alert From Jews for the Preservation of Firearms Ownership

JPFO Alert: Stop What You're Doing (and read this!)

The next target of terrorists may not be what you think.

Bridges, dams, large urban centers—these are the places that we traditionally think terrorists will strike. But according to two instructors at a recent anti-terrorism conference, preparations are already underway for horrific attacks on American schools.

The article covers known terrorist threats to our public schools as well as how they could happen. It also makes some educated guesses on what effects a major attack on one of our schools might have.

A Reader asks:

I am looking for any scholarly libertarian ("initiation of force") arguments to the following:

"The externalities of depictions of violence and pornography are clear. To complaints about those products being on the market, libertarians respond with something like 'Just hit the remote control and change channels on your TV set.' But, like the person who chooses not to run a smelter while others do, you, your family, and your neighbors will be affected by the people who do not change the channel, who do rent the pornographic videos, who do read alt.sex.stories. As film critic Michael Medved put it: 'To say that if you don't like the popular culture, then turn it off, is like saying if you don't like the smog, stop breathing. . . There are Amish kids in Pennsylvania who know about Madonna.' And their parents can do nothing about it."
