many elements in common, too many coincidences.
As a consequence, I believe that Americans have

They Saw It Coming: The 19th-Century Libertarian Critique of Fascism
by Roderick T. Long

To speak of a 19th-century libertarian critique of fascism might seem anachronistic, since fascism is generally understood as a 20th-century phenomenon. But it did not spring from nothing, and the libertarians of the 19th century saw it in the making.

Fascism differs from its close cousins, Communism and aristocratic conservatism, in several important ways. Let's begin with its difference from Communism. First, where Communism seeks to substitute the state for private ownership, fascism seeks to incorporate or co-opt private ownership into the state apparatus through public-private partnership.

And remember crazy people have always been around:

Bath School disaster
The Bath School disaster is the name given to three bombings in Bath Township, Michigan, on May 18, 1927, which killed 38 elementary school children, two teachers, four other adults and the bomber himself; at least 58 people were injured. Most of the victims were children in the second to sixth grades (7-11 years of age) attending the Bath Consolidated School. Their deaths constitute the deadliest mass murder in a school in U.S. history.

A Political Menagerie
by L. Neil Smith
My mom was used to calling herself a "fallen-away Catholic". Like so many others of that kind, she never got entirely free of it, and carried baggage of guilt and self-hatred with her to the end of her days.

Review of "Lincoln" a picture by Steven Spielberg
by Il Fettucinni
Lea and I mumped to the Sunset Theater in Bellingham Friday afternoon to see "Lincoln" the movie by Steven Spielberg. Spielberg has a magical ability to take almost every movie he makes and turn it into cinematic gold. His awards are many and profound and in the main, honestly deserved. So despite the fact that I had done revisionist reading on Lincoln and found incontrovertible proof that he was a liar, a mass murderer, and masterminded the bloodiest war in US history that was unnecessary, that killed over 660,00 young men, I still wanted to see how Spielberg would handle him.

Today, I was "This Guy"
by Kent McManigal
No, I am no August Landmesser. I did follow my conscience, though. It may not have been exactly a Nazi rally, and I probably wasn't in any real danger, but if you won't stand up (or remain seated) for what's right when it is easy, how do you expect to stand up for what's right when it is hard?

Connecticut Conspiracy?
by Neale Osborn
I know it makes one think of tinfoil hats (mine looks like a Stetson), but I see conspiracies in the mass of mass shootings. We've got Aurora, Oregon, and Connecticut, to name a few, just in the last few months.

The War Against Armed Crime: We Need Guns to Make Us Safer
by Sean Gabb
The current debate on armed crime is depressingly predictable. Everyone agrees something must be done. Just about everyone agrees this something must include laws against the sale or carrying or simple possession of weapons. More controls on weapons, the argument goes, the fewer weapons on the street: therefore lower levels of armed crime. charges.
