"The seemingly eternal conflict in human societies
is between slavers and individuals who simply
want to be left alone to enjoy their lives."

THE CURRENT ISSUE


EDITORIAL MATTERS:

PUBLISHER'S NOTE, mostly to Georgia and Indiana libertarians.

An article I wrote last week seems to have stung certain state party officialitos, even though it was primarily intended for the chair- warmers and hangers-on in the national LP. Where is it written that "The guilty flee where no man pursueth"?

The article contended—with evidence—that the Libertarian Party would be in much better shape today if they had begun listening to and following my advice—which consists principally of growing a set where controversial issues are concerned—years ago.

Decades, even.

Rank-and-file members should understand clearly that those they have, perhaps unwisely, voted into office have responded by requesting that I not send them my nasty old mailings any more, in essence, sticking their fingers in their ears, squinching their eyes shut, and chanting "I am not listening to L. Neil Smith!" over and over again.

Very adult.

Those who would like to know what I have to say (perhaps with an eye toward replacing these sluggards) may add themselves to my lists by following these instructions:

Flash Editorials November 26, 2011
by Russell D. Longcore
The Nation: Mitt Romney started the negative ad season this week, rolling out a TV ad that featured a few seconds of Obama speaking. What the ad omitted was that the clip showed Obama quoting something stupid John McCain had said four years earlier. At the end of the ad, you hear "I'm Mitt Romney and I approved this message." Shame on you, Mitt.

Righteous Indignation by Andrew Breitbart
Reviewed by John Walker
Andrew Breitbart has quickly established himself as the quintessential happy warrior in the struggle for individual liberty. His breitbart.com and breitbart.tv sites have become “go to” resources for news and video content, and his ever-expanding constellation of “Big” sites (Big Hollywood, Big Government, Big Journalism, etc.) have set the standard for group blogs which break news rather than just link to or comment upon content filtered through the legacy media.

Thoughts On Not Dying
by L. Neil Smith
My wife Cathy startled me the other day by saying, "I want to die young." Let's just say that the lovely and talented mother of my only child is over 50, so at first this seemed like an extremely peculiar thing to say, until I realized what she actually meant by it. She wants to continue feeling young, right up to her final moment. She also says — and this is a big part of it — she wants to leave this mortal coil with lots left to do. I have to admit that the idea is appealing. Let the graduate students try to figure out how I would have finished my last book. Then they'll die with lots left to do, as well.
