KINDLE            PAPERBACK       ePUB

What David Lloyd Sutton called a "deliciously irreverent collection" of insightful articles in his review for the San Francisco Book Review proves that political, social and cultural opinionizing can be both fun-provoking and thought-provoking at once.

 

Want to understand economics? Don't study Keynes or Hayek, study Scrooge McDuck. Want to know how government causes rather than curbs chaos? Don't ask your officious office-holder, ask your neighbor. Want to know how nanny state political correctness really works? Don't research the past, research the future. Want to read a book review review? (That's not a typo). Don't read those cranky conventional critics, read a Reed Review. Want to understand the real meaning of "bipartisans?" Don't consult your dictionary, consult Selected Salvos: "If we Democrats and Republicans work together to divvy up taxpayer booty we can both buy partisans."

 

This is "Fun&Freedom" stuff stuffed into twenty articles and a mere 76 pages for some quick reads, quick insights and quick laughs.

Interview with a small town 'cautious libertarian'

When most people encounter a libertarian they immediately force-fit that person into a category, as they do with nearly everyone else, and then proceed to treat that person as that category. They don't get that libertarians are individuals generally united by the Zero Aggression Principle and otherwise cannot be easily categorized...

 

 

Texas cannabis conservatism faces Reefer Reformation

As a socially and politically conservative state, sometimes called The Buckle of the Bible Belt, there's little surprise that Texas can't pass a marijuana decriminalization law, a recreational marijuana law, or even a medical marijuana law.

Jury rights activists rally in NYC for Silk Road trial

Debunking the Daily Kos anti-libertarian bunkum

When a writer like "arendt" at Daily Koss gets the most fundamental premises of his nearly 3,000-word harangue-plus-addendum against libertarianism so utterly wrong you know there's no sense reading all the way to the end since conclusions based on false premises are virtually guaranteed to be just as false...

 

 

Forget net neutrality, libertarians want net freedom

FFTF, Fight For The Future, is a nonprofit group fighting to implement "net neutrality" in the name of "Activating the internet for the public good." To accomplish this they want to take the internet out of the hands of big greedy, powerful, corrupt corporations and put it into the hands of big greedy, powerful, corrupt government...

 

 

Voluntaryists take on the tasteless TSA tormentors

The Voluntaryist Valiants are vaulting back into battle with yet another action packed adventure comic book episode and these dealers of defensive deeds are in need of freedom's financing. In other words, a new Voluntaryist Indiegogo crowdfunding campaign went live over the weekend...

 

 

Chicken salad economics and the ghettoization of America

"Taxes," Oliver Wendell Holmes famously wrote, "are the price we pay for a civilized society." But taxes, libertarians know, are the skim the "civilized" ruling classes take from the ruled classes to maintain their ostentatious lifestyles and to keep the "uncivilized lower classes" in their place...

RECENT EXAMINER READER REMARKS:

Your work keeps getting better and better.  Keep it up!

This writer, Garry Reed, is a prolific Libertarian who has taught me so much. He is an analytical thinker and a sparky writer.

I love your stuff.  Please keep writing.

Your articles are an inspiration. I am so glad you find the time to write them, I will always find the time to read them.

Thanks for the great reporting. I am a lifetime registered Republican. I am very angry with all the politicians. I have voted republican all my life, but things are really changing now. The more I read your articles and listen to the media, the more I think I'm a Libertarian. I also consider myself a Conservative and an Independent.

Damn you, Garry! I'm too busy as it is, and now I have to stop and read your posts whenever they show up, because they are just that good. Hopefully lots of people who aren't already members of the choir are reading these too!
