Alongside Night: The Motion Picture
by L. Neil Smith
Too many years ago to think about comfortably, I made a convention
speech in Phoenix entitled "You Can't Fight a Culture War If You Ain't Got Any Culture"
(and yes, I am aware that it should have been "No Culture"). Well here's the news, boys
and girls, ladies and gentlemen, and everybody else in between: the libertarian movement
has plenty of culture. Its latest manifestation has arrived in the form of a motion
picture version of J. Neil Schulman's long-beloved novel, Alongside Night, a prophetic
story of a revolution brought on by a monetary crisis, the sort of crisis seven billion people
are living through today.
Not Exactly a Review
by Tomas L. Knapp
The Power of Habeas Corpus in America: From the King's
Prerogative to the War on Terror by Anthony Gregory (Independent Institute /
Cambridge University Press, 2013)—I first encountered Anthony Gregory's work
back at the beginning of the decade, on—if I recall correctly—LewRockwell.Com.
At the time I considered him the most promising young libertarian writer around, and
I've seen nothing in the intervening years to change that evaluation. He writes well,
he keeps it interesting and his arguments are morally compelling and thorough in their
logic. That's true of his short pieces to this very day, and it's true of his first book.
Colorado, Interrupted: Why I Support the Secessionist Movement
by Jonathan David Morris
I have never been to Colorado. It's possible I've flown over it,
because I've been to the west coast several times. But: (a) I don't know, and never will;
and (b) there's a difference between going to and going through a place anyway.
To Those on Social Security
by Paul Bonneau
Many people on Socialist Security (I can hardly think of it as "Social"
any more) have come to the realization, or at least the uncomfortable suspicion, that they
are on the dole. I guess this is kinda hard to miss these days, although I won't expand on
reasons why in this article (use a search engine). Assuming it's the case for the reader—that
is, he's aware it is a form of dole—the question then becomes, what to do about it?
The EMANCIPATION of the PEOPLES of the WORLD
by Danilo D'Antonio
When the various Countries of the world became democrats, the
minorities who inherited from previous regimes the assignments of the Public Functions
for the course of their whole life, instead to return them to the citizens as demanded
democracy, continued to keep them for themselves. With the occurred democracies, these
primaries collective resources would have to start to be participated by TEMPORARY
assignments. Their hoarders, instead, took advantage of positions of power to keep the
undue privileges of the tyrannical era.
Saint Traryvon and Niven's First Law
by Rich Matarese
I'm a science fiction fan. Most people are mundanes. They don't read SF
much, they don't consider speculative fiction the cutting-edge genre in modern literature,
and they're largely illiterate in the sciences and in scientific method.
From The Rust Belt to Matagorda & Back Again:
a History Lesson and Hope for the Future of Freedom
by Jeff Fullerton
Welcome to Matagorda Island. An interesting strip of land also referred
to as a sand split or barrier island off the coast of Texas that was acquired by the War
Department as a bombing range during World War II. Later became an Air Force installation
and eventually a federal wildlife refuge.
Survival Sheath Systems
Reviewed by L. Neil Smith
Over the years, I've worn dozens of different kinds of holsters.
Half of them I've designed and made, myself. And in the particular instance of knife
sheaths, I hardly have one I haven't drastically altered, usually to bring the crossguard
(if there is one) up to belt level. When I was doing this for a living, more than a few
of my efforts showed up at Jeff Cooper's American Pistol Institute, where one famous
instructor, retired law enforcement officer Bruce Nelson, who designed the great "Askins
Avenger" line for Bianchi International, declared me to be "the fourth or fifth best
holster-maker in America". The point here isn't to brag—I haven't made holsters
commercially for a very long time—but to demonstrate that I know a good thing when
I see it. And seen it I have.
