"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

Your Voice(s) Heard
by L. Neil Smith
I forget exactly where I first wrote it: “At my age, time flies whether you’re having any fun or not.” But it’s true, and I just had another unsettling experience (some people would call it a “senior moment” that bears it out.

Still Not My Problem
by MamaLiberty
Not my problem. I’m sure a lot of people would consider that a harsh thing to say, but if you’ll stay with me a bit you should easily see that it is the only real answer to the whole “politically correct” thing sweeping this country and, incidentally, the world.

Arson at Australian Bank, but At Least No One Was Shot
by Mike Blessing
Yesterday, the Australian Broadcasting Corporation [ABC] reported that a court in Melbourne released a video from CCTV archives of an asylum seeker from Myanmar setting fire to a Springvale branch of the Commonwealth Bank. Apparently, the guy in question, 22-year-old Nur Islam, allegedly got pissed off because he had to stand in line to make his withdrawl, so he left the bank, went to a nearby gas station, then returned to the bank with a 1/3-full gas can.

Amazon Review of Dr. Patrick Johnston’s novel The Reliant
by J. Neil Schulman
The Reliant falls into two genres that I like: 1. Post-disaster survival fiction. One of my favorites is Lucifer’s Hammer by Larry Niven and Jerry Pournelle, about survival after a comet impacts earth — and this book has inspired everything from David Brin’s The Postman to the movies Deep Impact and Armageddon; 2. Christian themed fiction. My absolute favorite writer of Christian apologetics in both fiction and non-fiction is C.S. Lewis, whose Narnia books I fell in love with as a child, growing up as Jewish so I had no idea Christianity had anything to do with the stories. But as an adult I read all of Lewis’s published books and served several terms on the governing council of the Southern California C.S. Lewis Society. And that was when I was an atheist.

Benefits and Perils of Immigration: The Double Edged Sword
by Jeff Fullerton
Immigration is controversial issue that puts Libertarians on the spot because of the conflict of our belief that peaceful people ought to enjoy freedom of movement verses allowing ourselves to be murdered by our own virtue. There are people in this world who will take advantage of the generosity of western democracies—and they are taking advantage and many of them would also use democracy itself to impose a totalitarian world view upon free and open societies if they became the majority of the population.

A Nation of Sheep: Understanding England and the English
by Sean Gabb
I’d like to begin by thanking Hans and Gulcin for their great kindness in inviting me once again to Bodrum to address the Property and Freedom Society. But where to begin with the title that Hans has set for me? I could take the patronising approach taken by many Englishmen when called to speak about their country to an audience largely of foreigners. Whether I talk about Shakespeare, the Changing of the Guard and Churchill, or gush about the sinister pantomime that opened last year’s Olympic Games in London, it would have the same implied message. You see, we are an extraordinarily nationalist people. Our nationalism, however, doesn’t cause us to hate foreigners. Instead – and this applies also, and indeed particularly to Americans – we don’t hate you: we just feel sorry for you.
