Toward an International Bill of Rights Union
by L. Neil Smith
The internet is an interesting thing. You can be communicating
with somebody across town today, somebody in another state tonight,
and somebody on the other side of the world tomorrow, all with equal
ease. In fact if their e-mail address doesn't show it, and you don't
know how to read that routing gobbledygook at the top of the message,
you can be doing one of those three things and not know which one it
Should Christians Comply With Gun Confiscation?
by Doug Newman
Jim Z. writes: "If the government put down a law
tomorrow that said we had to turn in all privately owned fire arms, as

neither. But I understand it happened, and this will be similar.
Of Rails and Liberty
by Daniel G. Jennings
Once upon a time, America had an efficient, cost

operated by private enterprise and developed without government money.

by L. Neil Smith
Permit me to begin this by confessing, as a
libertarian writer and thinker, that economics is not my long suit.
F. Paul Wilson observed many years ago that our movement seems to be
divided into two distinct groups: those he characterizes as "gnomes",
whose principal interest is the politics of money, and those he
designates "Flinters" whose highest priority is the practical issue
of self-defense. I call the latter "hooligan libertarians" and I'm
proud to number myself among them.
