The Last Test of Democracy: Part Four
The Great Moratorium
by L. Neil Smith
In 1972, when I was 26 years old and had been a
libertarian for a full decade already, I attended a week-long seminar
in Wichita, Kansas hosted by the local 7-Up bottlers and the Love Box
Company. It was conducted by perhaps the freedom movement's greatest
educator, Robert LeFevre. He wanted everyone to call him "Bob".
The Global Warming Creed

I believe in Gore, the Prophet All-Knowing, the Creator
of the Internet, and in Global Warming, his brain-child:
What's the True Source of our Right to Bear Arms?
by Paul Bonneau
There are some odd posts being made on gun forums these
days. For example, "its people like you that will hand the white house to
a commi democrat, who will select the next supreme court justice member....
and they will destroy the 2nd..." This, apparently an attempt to convince
us to vote for McCain, that great protector of the 2nd Amendment. Here's
another: "The jack booted feds will roll you (and me) up like an old
carpet. If you think you can resist then you will join the ranks of the
Branch Davidians and the martyrs of Ruby Ridge. All the good sheeple will
fall in line or die." This is supposedly what will happen if Obama or
Hillary gets elected.
Artificial Scarcities and Surpluses
by Dennis Lee Wilson
I have recently been musing on some of the artificial
scarcities and surpluses created by the multiple governments at all levels
(National or Federal, State, County, Parish, City, School District &
whatever) and what they have done TO the human race.
Give Me That Old Time Religion
by A.X. Perez
Libertarians don't like the word sin. Why should we?
Would be tyrants use the word quite a bit to try to force us to live life
their way instead of our own. There is also the issue that what is sinful
for one faith (eating meat on Friday during Lent for Catholics, Anglicans
and Lutherans, for example) is not for others (Most Evangelical Protestants).
Not to mention that there's always some spoilsport calling everything we
like doing a sin. We don't like the word sin applied to or actions.
