An Excerpt from Blade of p'Na
by L. Neil Smith
The nearest city of any size on this world lies 500 miles north of
the northwest coast of the Inland Sea where Eichra Oren and I live. It was named by
humans, who for fifteen thousand years have called it Lanternlight. It's said there's
a city there, in the S-bend of a great river, in a hundred thousand alternate worlds.
Easy, rapid transportation and near-perfect communication have made such collections
of individuals and buildings pretty much obsolete in this one. Add to that the fact
that the landwelling population of the Elders' Earth is sparse, no more than a couple
hundred million sapients on the whole planet, all of them Appropriated Persons or their
descendants, and well spread out.
by Tyrone Johnson
Today, something on the close order of 93 million Americans are
out of work. Although the "official" government figure claims that unemployment is
less than 6%, that figure deliberately ignores the long-term discouraged who aren't
giving the government evidence of looking for work. A far more accurate picture,
using the government's statistics as organised by the algorithm used back in 1980,
shows unemployment running well above 23%.
The Most Libertarian Movie Ever?
by J. Neil Schulman
I've been writing about the Alongside Night Movie for over
five years, starting when I was still trying to put together casting and financing to
get it made. I've sold it hard on the libertarian content in the movie and how I believe
a feature-length narrative film can be effective in approaching people—especially young
people—to consider libertarian principles and comparing libertarian approaches with
far-more-popular government-reliant policies.
E-Book Round Up: Please Enroll Responsibly
by Sean Gangol
Recently I have been reading more and more E-books, which I hadn't
done much of before, since I was the type who preferred the old fashion paper books
(dead tree books, as many like to call them). This was mainly due to one of my favorite
reading spots being in the pool and Jacuzzi, which I didn't feel comfortable reading an
electronic device in. I didn't have much use for E-Books until Lee Doran, one of my
favorite YouTubers, wrote a book that was exclusively published on a Kindle format.
"Land of the License, Home of the Fee"
by Sean N. Gruber
Remember after 9/11 when Bush, his cronies and the complicit mass
media kept chanting "they hate us for our freedom!"? Well, I don't think the "terrorists"
hate us for our freedom. And you want to know why? Because we aren't free. Not even close.
Not a little bit, not at all. In this Country you need a "license" to drive. A "permit" to
carry a gun. One can't protest unless one does so in a designated "free speech zone" and
has permission from the local magistrate. When you are out driving you can be stopped at
anytime at either a "border patrol inspection" or a "sobriety checkpoint." And that reminds
me, you can't buy alcohol unless you have a state issued "id" and also you can't legally walk
down the street without one of those id's, lest you be stopped by a Nazi, I mean "peace
officer" and he demand to see it, even if he suspects you of no wrong doing—"your papers please!"
No, Ordering Sandra Bland Out Of Her Car Was Not a Lawful Police Order
by Edward Malone
You have probably heard the constant refrain from commentators,
lawyers, and legal scholars that ordering Sandra Bland out of her vehicle that day
in Prairie View, Texas may have been bad policing but it was legal. For example,
CNN legal analyst Danny Cevallos wrote, "If your motor vehicle is lawfully stopped
for a traffic violation, police can order you out of the car. Period." This Texas
attorney begs to differ.
