On the Loss of a Friend
by L. Neil Smith
My old friend Ambrose has died. I don't suppose this really concerns
anybody but me, but it's my way of dealing with a surprisingly painful event, so please
bear with me. Ambrose was my cat—technically he was an Egyptian Housecat, Felis
silvestris catus, as Wikipwedia puts it, a small, usually furry, domesticated, and
carnivorous mammal—possibly the best such critter I've ever lived with in a lifetime
filled with cats. He was a striped, orangey-yellow tom, of the kind that display an "M"
on their forehead over their eyes. Or he was yellowy orange; to give you a better idea,
his sister's name was Amber, and his mother's name was Cinnamon.
A Life of One's Own?—Fugget About It!
by Jeffery Small
Tick... Tick... Tick... Tick... Behind the scenes, the gears continue
to turn slowly but continuously, always working to advance the progressive agenda. While
Obama acts as the carney—the front man for our dark national circus—constantly
repeating lies until they become accepted by many as though they were simple facts,
there is an army operating in the shadows, often financed with our tax dollars, busily
planning how to further exert control over our lives.
Judgment Play: My Years With Ayn Rynd—Chapter One
by Gnat Bloominthrall
What follows is the first chapter of Judgment Play: My Years With Ayn Rynd,
my 25-years-too-late parody of the Nathaniel Branden’s 1989 memoir Judgment Day: My Years With
Ayn Rand (not to be confused with the second and more restrained edition, My Years With Ayn Rand).
The introduction to Judgment Play was published in the February 2, 2014 issue of The Libertarian
Silicon Assassin: A Review
by Sean Gangol
(Contains some spoilers) "Silicon Assassin" is another libertarian based form of
entertainment that was unfairly panned by Davi Barker. "Silicon Assassin" is a web series shown on
YouTube, which centers on a form of artificial intelligence that has chosen to fight for individual
liberty. In the near future there is a great war that devastates the United States and allows the
government to take the powers that they need to finally do away with individual liberty. As it says
in the introduction, the government has basically become a twisted parody of the United States.
Want to See Alongside Night at a Movie Theater Near You?
by L. Neil Smith
Want to see Alongside Night at a movie theater near you? You
don't have to leave it to Hollywood moguls anymore. You can put Alongside Night
into a movie theater near you. Alongside Night has just been released into U.S.
movie theaters via TUGG.com, a revolutionary distribution model where movie lovers get
to put a movie they love (or would love to see) into a neighborhood movie theater and
make money (for themselves or their favorite cause) by selling tickets. It costs them
nothing and there's no cost to anyone if enough tickets aren't sold for the showing to

Ca. 2006 or earlier: Mexican Government begins crackdown on drug
cartels at behest of US government. Same time period to present: DEA begins various
"stings" in which it helps Sinaloa cartel smuggle drugs and money. However, while
smuggling occurs no one actually gets stung. Ca 2006: Bush Administration starts
Operation Wide Receiver in coordination with Mexican Government to trace movement
of guns from US to Mexico. Operation stopped when it becomes clear it is impossible
to keep track of guns.
Neale's Weekly Gun Rant Volume 42
by Neale Osborn
It has been pointed out to me that I made a simple mistake in my
blanket statement "EVERY SINGLE AMERICAN CITIZEN HAS THE RIGHT TO CARRY A CONCEALED
WEAPON". I shall now rectify the problem, then expand upon it, as suggested by Mama Liberty.
The Troika of the Anti-Intellectual Libertarian Faction
by Steve Vandervelde
First of all, before I go characterizing other people, I should
make clear where I stand. I am an individualist libertarian and a philosophical
anarchist. By philosophical anarchist I mean that individual liberty is the first
principle of politics, the rights of the individual, not any other collective demands,
are primary and override all other ethical considerations. Any human actions that are
taken outside of the realm of ethics are not justifiable, except by some un-ethical
means. You see, I agree with the basic meaning of anarchism, no ruler. It does not
mean no rules, simply no rulers. Under a libertarian system rules are established
contractually and by consent.
