Happy Zagmuk—If You Can Keep It
(The Feature Article)

Happy Zagmuk!
Happy Zagmuk!

The important question is not
"What's your religion?" but
"How do you feel about the Bill of Rights?"


The Impeachable Offenses of Barack Hussein Obama
by Terence James Mason
In 7 parts.

Happy Zagmuk—If You Can Keep It
by L. Neil Smith
Maybe it's because I've been a libertarian for so long, accustomed to being no more than a tiny mote floating in a vast ocean of those who disagree with me about almost everything. Or maybe it's because I grew up the son of a mother who described herself frequently as a "fallen away Catholic" and a father to whom religion was never very important. In any event, It's always bothered me more that people disregard the Bill of Rights than what's written in some holy tome or another.

Winter's Bone
a novel by Daniel Woodrell

by Eric Oppen
We hear a good deal of how the War on Drugs devastates communities and families, but most of what the mainstream media sees fit to print is focussed tightly on "minority" neighborhoods in the cities. But the damage is just as great in the rural areas, and this is where Winter's Bone is set.

Who Loves Liberty More - Liberals or Conservatives?
by Paul Bonneau
Back when I was living in Wyoming, I put together a website that purported to rank those in the Wyoming legislature, based on their support of or hostility to liberty. The site is here: Wyoming Liberty Index. Naturally, that was when I still believed in the utility of political work. I might have been called a minarchist back then as well (although I went back and forth on that one). If some people used the Index to help them unseat liberty-hostile legislators, or support the more liberty-friendly ones, it wouldn't have bothered me; however I stayed out of that end of things, mostly because the ruling class feels the need to punish anyone who influences elections. So much for free speech...

Whither Now, libertarian?
A Covenant of Unanimous Consent article

by Dennis Wilson
What IS the NAP and who IS a libertarian? The Non-Aggression Principle (NAP) is highlighted in red in the following statement.) "A libertarian is a person who believes that no one has the right, under any circumstances, to initiate force against another human being, or to advocate or delegate its initiation. Those who act consistently with this principle are libertarians, whether they realize it or not. Those who fail to act consistently with it are not libertarians, regardless of what they may claim."—L. Neil Smith

E-Book Round Up: A Libertarian and Objectivist Christmas Carol
by Sean Gangol
(Some Spoilers) Considering the time of year that we are in I thought that it was appropriate to a do a review of an E-book that reimagines Charles Dickens' classic "A Christmas Carol." While I admit freely that I have never read the original Dickens short story, I have seen countless versions that have appeared on both the big and small screen (my favorite is Scrooged with Bill Murray). When I found this version in the Nook book store I was reminded of the article that Russell D. Longcore wrote five years ago, titled "Ebenezer Scrooge and Economic Freedom." The funny thing about that article is that it made me see Scrooge in an entirely different light. It brought into question whether people's hatred of the man was even justified.

A Shortage of Mature and Same Adults
by A.X. Perez
I have always felt that no one who fails to show an almost idolatrous love of the ideals of liberty reflected in the US Constitution should be elected to Congress or the Presidency. The alacrity displayed by almost every candidate for President to junk the Constitution in pursuing the War on Terrorism reflects their unfitness for that office.

ID Cards: Solving a Problem that Dare not Speak its Name
by Sean Gabb
Writing in the Daily Telegraph on the 10th December 2015, two Members of Parliament—Frank Field and Nicholas Soames—regret the cancellation, in 2010, of the previous Labour Government's identity card scheme. They argue that the threat of terrorism requires us to think again. By all means, let us think again. However, since no material facts have changed, I see no reason for reaching the same conclusion as before. Identity cards are an astonishingly bad idea—so bad that it is hard to make a case for them with any semblance of good faith.

Our mostly-usual practice is to skip the week between Christmas and New-Years. We will probably do that again this year. Which means we will be back January 3, 2016. Another way of saying it is we will not publish on December 27. No matter which way you look at it, it's the same thing. As best I can tell.

And in other news, "We wish you a merry christmas, we wish you a merry christmas, we wish you a merry christmas, and a happy new years." Also a merry zagmuk, and a pleasant any and all other end-of-year holiday. Unless your calendar ends at some other time of the year, in which case you are on your own, okay?
