ZAP: The Heart, Soul, Spine, Guts, and Cojones of Libertarianism
(The Feature Article)

QE2 to 007
QE2 to 007
(tip o' the hat to Rob Gillespie)

Here was a rational ethical guideline, a way
for Killer Apes to trade and get along without
eating one another, that was more profound,
better "engineered", and more universal in its
application than either the Golden Rule or
Kant's Categorical Imperative.


The Impeachable Offenses of Barack Hussein Obama

ZAP: The Heart, Soul, Spine, Guts, and Cojones of Libertarianism
by L. Neil Smith
The natural enemy of a rational social order appears to be the shrimp cocktail, or the bacon-wrapped shrimp. Stick with me, while I attempt to explain how the corrupt desire to be invited to all of the "right" cocktail parties undermines and threatens the most admirable and fundamental philosophical achievements of the libertarian movement.

Thanks for the Apology—I Knew What I Was Getting Into
by Norma Jean Almodovar
Love your endorsement of John McAfee. The office for which I ran was Lieutenant Governor. my book was finally published by Simon and Schuster in 1993. I am writing three more. I'll probably get harassed by the cops and the statists for them too.

She: A History of Adventure (1887)

by Richard Blake
Published in 1887, after being serialised in The Graphic, She: A History of Adventure stands at the beginning of modern fantasy literature. This was the decade in which the expansion of historic time required by Darwin and the geologists was established in the public mind. The space had opened for thoughts of civilisations before our own, and even before the previously unknown or dimly-known civilisations now being revealed by the archaeologists. I will not say that She was the first book to fill this space. But it was the most notably triumphant. It is a classic that has never gone out of print. It is said to have sold almost a hundred million copies, and has been translated into dozens of languages. Its influence remains pervasive within the various genres and sub-genres to which it gave birth.

by Norma Jean Almodovar
Freedom—Is there man born who lusts not after liberty?
Freedom—Are there anywhere souls who crave not to be free?
Those who would not look up to the sky and to God vow,
One has the right to live one's life the way one chooses how?

Trump and the Rise of the Unprotected
Why political professionals are struggling to make sense of the world they created.
by Peggy Noonan
Feb. 27, 2016

There are the protected and the unprotected. The protected make public policy. The unprotected live in it. The unprotected are starting to push back, powerfully.

The protected are the accomplished, the secure, the successful—those who have power or access to it. They are protected from much of the roughness of the world. More to the point, they are protected from the world they have created. Again, they make public policy and have for some time.

I want to call them the elite to load the rhetorical dice,
but let‘s stick with the protected.

They are figures in government, politics and media. They live in nice neighborhoods, safe ones. Their families function, their kids go to good schools, they‘ve got some money. All of these things tend to isolate them, or provide buffers. Some of them—in Washington it is important officials in the executive branch or on the Hill; in Brussels, significant figures in the European Union—literally have their own security details.

Because they are protected they feel they can do pretty much anything, impose any reality. They‘re insulated from many of the effects of their own decisions.

And that seems to sum it all up.

Our publisher notes:

THE GREATEST COMIC ADVENTURE EVER PUBLISHED Now available online, in full color

Remember the Alamo?

In an alternate universe, frontiersman Davy Crocket survived the 1836 siege at the Alamo, and Mexican General Santa Ana did not. This changed history for all of North America: Texas remained an independent republic; Mexico fell under rule of the French and did not regain her independence.

In 1947, Texican President Charles A. Lindbergh learns that something has crashed near the far west Texas town of Roswell. He dispatches his best friend, "Wild Bill Bear", and three of his best Texas Rangers, to investigate. Our four heroes find themselves in a race against agents from the United States and Britain, the Franco-Mexican Empire, the California Republic, and the Third-and-a-Half Reich, to find that crashed machine and learn its secrets. And as a result, they will change the course of history—again.

Wild Bill and his motley crew of Texas Rangers ride again, this time in a hi-resolution, full color .PDF release of the popular alternate history story from five-time Prometheus award winner L. Neil Smith and cartoonist legend Rex F. May (a.k.a. "Baloo"). Now readers can enjoy the full effect of Scott Bieser and Jen Zach's marvelous art for this fantastic tale of strangely familiar people living in an even stranger world that is all too familiar.

This grand adventure, serialized on the web in 2006-2007 and printed in greyscale in 2008 can now be yours to enjoy in hi-resolution and full color. Be the first kid on your block to get this gigantic masterpiece of a story, now available for $9.95 at DriveThru Comics.
