Thus the University, as such, passes out
of the chain of institutions that have
traditionally advanced the human condition.
The Editor’s Notes

Attribute to L. Neil Smith’s The Libertarian Enterprise
We hear from L. Neil Smith this issue. To answer his question:
https://gab.ai replaces both facebook and twatter. No censorship.
https://infogalactic.com/ replaces Wikipedia — it is a copy of Wikipedia which is being re-edited to become neutral like an encyclopedia should. Naturally that revision is going to take a while! For topics that are controversial or difficult to decide, every attempt is supposed to be made to present all answers and to emphasise the lack of agreement.
There are browser plug-ins to automatically convert all wikipedia links to infogalactic links, which is splendid except when ya want to actually look at the wikipedia version. Search for the InfoSextant plug-in/extension for your browser. I keep a spare browser (QupZilla to be specific) without the plug-in for wikipedia directly.

Battlefield America Is the New Normal: We’re Not in Mayberry Anymore
by John W. Whitehead
The Rutherford Institute
“If we’re training cops as soldiers, giving them equipment like soldiers, dressing them up as soldiers, when are they going to pick up the mentality of soldiers? If you look at the police department, their creed is to protect and to serve. A soldier’s mission is to engage his enemy in close combat and kill him. Do we want police officers to have that mentality? Of course not.”— Arthur Rizer, former police officer and member of the military
America, you’ve been fooled again.
While the nation has been distracted by a media maelstrom dominated by news of white supremacists, Powerball jackpots, Hurricane Harvey, and a Mayweather v. McGregor fight, the American Police State has been carving its own path of devastation and destruction through what’s left of the Constitution.
And … some other stuff I forgot where I put it or something. Senility and all that.
Was that worth reading?
