Libertarians and Iraq
by Daniel G. Jennings
What does the Iraq War mean to Libertarians and how
should they respond to it and think about it?
This Hurricane Season
by Sean Gangol
I don't know if anyone else remembers the exact moment
they lost all faith in the government, but I remember losing mine two years
ago during Hurricanes Katrina and Rita. Not that my faith was all that
strong to begin with. By then I had already considered myself a cynical
Libertarian. I guess there was still a part of me that wanted to believe
that the government would rise to the occasion, when needed.
Why We Must Win
by A.X. Perez
A few years ago a young lady in El Paso County, Texas
tried to cover up the death of her infant and was caught out. She was
charged with what amounted to negligent homicide of an infant. She admitted
to covering up the child's death while being interrogated by the sheriff's
deputies. She also asked for an attorney repeatedly, a request which the
deputies denied. All of this was videotaped.
The YouTube Debate
by Jonathan David Morris
Anyone who's ever spent any time on YouTube knows it's
the Internet's greatest time-suck yet. Thirty second clips spawn 30 minute
sessions as one bumbling weatherman leads to another, till suddenly you
realize you've spent the last six hours watching breakdancing babies,
teenage girls fighting, and terrible rap songs performed by two dorks
who think it's a hoot to bust rhymes about math. If there's ever been
an opiate of the masses, YouTube is that opiate. TV only trained us for
YouTube. In ten years, we'll wonder how we were ever mindlessly
entertained without it.
