On The Occasion of Libertopia 2010
by L. Neil Smith
Ladies and gentlemen, fellow children of the American Revolution, I
regret not being with you on this occasion, but there is important businesshistorically
important businessthat needs to be discussed. Once again we find ourselves standing at
the brink. In just a few more days, our neighbors will choosefor themselves, and, to an
unfortunate degree, for uswhether they want to live brave and free or would rather
cower with the boot-heel of collectivism on their necks.
Learning from the Insane
by Bob Wallace
"Great men are almost always bad men," wrote Lord Acton. From their
badness you can learn much about the flaws inherent in the mass of people. Disease is as
instructive as health, since it tells people to flee the former and seek the latter.
Unfortunately, when it comes to politics, many people can't tell the difference between
the two, and in fact see disease as health, unholiness as holiness, war as peace, ignorance
Israel and Secession
by Russell D. Longcore
Does the Nation of Israel Have a Right To Exist? The nation of Israel
seems to be in the news on a nearly daily basis. And if Israel itself is not garnering
headlines, supporters of Israel take up the slack. By writing this article, I am not
taking any position on Israel's actions. I am not taking a position on Israel's politics.
No position from me on Israel's interaction with its neighbors. What I want to get you to
consider is whether Israel has the right to exist as a sovereign nation... or if ANY nation
has a right to exist.
Rip-Off by the Federal Reserve
by Jim Carter
The Federal Reserve uses euphemistic smoke and mirrors to obscure their
operations. With full knowledge the following is not the way the Fed/government describes the
system, allow me to offer a different analysis of their mathematical operation.
Salt on the Ruins
A Chapter from the Forthcoming Where We Stand
by L. Neil Smith
They were rightalthough I had to see it for myself before I
fully grasped the magnitude of the phenomenonchildren are learning machines, more
or less in the same sense that sharks are eating machines. The only phenomenon more
astonishing than that is the way the public school system manages to kick, stomp, and
crush a child's inherent curiosity and love of learning, often destroying it altogether
by the third or fourth grade. Yes, children are learning machines. The fact that
government schools have managed to condition them against learning is an
astonishingif wholly negativefeat, achieved at the unspeakable cost of
countless hundreds of billions of dollars.

Several years ago, I agreed to provide some writing for an outfit
called "Strike the Root" which was pretending to be against government oppression,
tyranny, and the violence of the state. The name of the site comes from a quote from
Henry David Thoreau about how for all the thousands hacking at the branches of evil
there is only one striking at the root. It has one of those Biblical sounds,
reminiscent of Jesus talking about taking out the corrupt tree both root and branch.
You could probably look it up.
