"Gun control is the idea that it’s better to see a woman dead in an alley, strangled
with her own pantyhose, than to see her with a gun in her hand."—T.D. Melrose

Observations of Collectivism
(The Feature Article)


Is it True, or is it CNN?
Is it True, or is it CNN?



The left regards [individualism] as a kind of
stubborn perversion, which they ignorantly
and twistedly confuse with racism or elitism

The Editor’s Notes
by Ken Holder, Editor
Our Mr. Smith swings his mighty hammer (“pen?” … “keyboard?”) and whacks that nail right square in his article this issue. That is what it is that is so off about the … the … none of the commonly-used words for Political Correctors and/or Slavers are really meaningful anymore, having been twisted and perverted by those self-same Enemies of Liberty so as to spread confusion, fear, uncertainty, and doubt among the thinking classes, so as to advance their agenda for enslaving everybody.

Observations of Collectivism
by L. Neil Smith
I was reading an article the other day about some guy named Kris Kobach, who is the Republican Secretary of State for the state of Kansas. It seems that he has accepted a job writing regularly for Breitbart, which has caused every “progressive“ head within a thousand miles to explode.

Jerry and Me
by J. Neil Schulman
Jerry Pournelle read the manuscript of Alongside Night after David Hartwell had given it final acceptance for publication as a Berkley paperback original and— at a LASFS meeting—Jerry handed me 30 pages of notes, telling me that Robert Heinlein had given Larry Niven and him extensive notes on The Mote in God’s Eye with the admonition, “Pay It Forward.”

How I Got My TV, a Piece of Fiction
by A.X. Perez
I’ve known the Awats for the last fifty years or more. So when Farah showed up at the counter to pay for a couple of pounds of ground beef and a loaf of bread I thought nothing of it.

State Censorship, Corporate Censorship: A Libertarian View
by Sean Gabb
Every age we have so far known has been one of censorship. This is not to say that opinion has been equally constrained in all times and places. Sometimes, as in the Soviet Union, it has been oppressive and omnipresent – even extending to an imposition of orthodoxy on the natural sciences. More often, it has been focussed on perceived criticisms of the established political and religious order. Sometimes, dissent has been permitted among the intellectual classes – especially when expressed in a language unknown to the people at large, and only punished when communicated to the people at large. Sometimes, a diversity of political orders has limited any particular censorship to an area of just a few square hundreds of miles. Sometimes it has been limited by a general belief in the right of free expression. But I can think of no time or place where publication has been absolutely unconstrained.
