Genetic Codes: Private Property Versus Public Goods
by Ingemar Nordin
The aim of the paper is to make a case for the protection of genetic
codes. It is argued that within a property rights (or "libertarian") approach this has to
be accomplished through having a copyright to the physical body parts and biological
tissues one owns. It is also argued that copyrights can only be upheld if biological
material is transferred or exposed to others in a contractual situation. Therefore
extra care has to be taken when things like hair and blood is thrown or given away.
How Do You Practice for Self Defense?
So, you've taken the basic pistol or CCW class in your area, bought
your gun and visit girl guntalk web sites or discuss with a few friends your choices in
gear and the right ammunition. You show up at the range at least once a month, and may
even be contemplating joining the ladies night shoot. You are carrying daily or at least
thinking about it....
Things That Make No Sense
by Brad Linaweaver
I always like to celebrate surviving another birthday (9-1) by thinking
about something that makes no sense. So, I'm a year older. The year is 2014, and the current
example of nonsense has to do with ISIS (or ISIL, or the Islamic State). Not only frantic
Republicans, but a fair smattering of Democrats and nervous Brits insist that this latest
tentacle of Radical Islam is the whole octopus. It's here at last, an existential threat.
Maybe even a metaphysical threat. It is the beginning of the dread Caliphate!!!! The Prime
Minister of the UK talks about it as a greater threat than Hitler's Nazis, Stalinist Commies,
Imperial Japanese, eternal China, pedophile priests and Injuns on the warpath.
Summer's End: A New Beginning
by Jeff Fullerton
Been a busy week so I have to settle on an update to the events
chronicled in other recent articles rather than some of the other subjects promised
earlier on and which I have been chomping at the bit to do. And I do occasionally
when time and energy permit the opportunity to do them well as they deserve to be
done. In the meantime it does make for a nice break from the polemic exegesis on the
evils of Big Government which even many capital L Libertarians can grow weary at
times. And the wars and rumors of wars rocking the world at large.

Ever wonder why cats torment their prey before they kill and eat it?
Turns out cats fight a lot among themselves and have a reasonably strong inhibition against
killing each other. Often this means that they have to "psyche" themselves up to killing
their prey by torturing it.
