L. Neil Smith’s The Libertarian Enterprise | Animals Are Property

L. Neil Smith’s The Libertarian Enterprise | Animals Are Property

  By L. Neil Smith Last Friday I watched an episode of _The X-Files_ in which innocent zoo animals were being abducted — apparently by benign, superior UFOsies (the ones who mutilate cattle and stick huge needles in women’s bellies) — to save them from a despicable mankind responsible for the erasure of thousands of […]

L. Neil Smith’s The Libertarian Enterprise | Hall-Pass Nation

L. Neil Smith’s The Libertarian Enterprise | Hall-Pass Nation

  By L. Neil Smith I went out to a bar the other night to listen to karaoke. Yeah, I do that. For some perverted reason, a young lady near the entrance demanded that I produce identification. Since I am plainly a 72-year-old man in a wheelchair, I felt that this was peculiar and uncalled-for — especially since no […]

L. Neil Smith’s The Libertarian Enterprise | A Tale of Two Idiots

L. Neil Smith’s The Libertarian Enterprise | A Tale of Two Idiots

  by L. Neil Smith I confess that I don’t keep as close an eye on music as I used to.  I read today in a Breitbart article by A.W.R. Hawkins about one Eric  Church, a “country-western superstar” I never heard of — I looked him  up afterward and discovered that I’d never heard any of […]

L. Neil Smith’s The Libertarian Enterprise | Once More, With Thinking

L. Neil Smith’s The Libertarian Enterprise | Once More, With Thinking

  By L. Neil Smith It’s entirely possible that I explain myself too much at times; it annoys me when I have to do it. It means I didn’t do my job right (mostly I have always thought of myself as a teacher who had to construct his own classroom) in the first place. Unlike a public school teacher, […]

L. Neil Smith’s The Libertarian Enterprise | Exactly How STUPID Do You Have To Be?

  by L. Neil Smith Way down south in Venezuela, they’ve eaten their cats and dogs — and the animals in the zoo. In North Korea, I’ve heard they’re eating one another. And in Sweden (as in much of Europe) hostile barbarian  savages are eating Western Civilization alive. California is eating itself. In each case (and many […]

L. Neil Smith’s The Libertarian Enterprise | The Avocado Paradigm

L. Neil Smith’s The Libertarian Enterprise | The Avocado Paradigm

  by L. Neil Smith That nasty Stalinoid mouthpiece Joy Behar showed up on The View last week where she customarily dispenses her spider venom, with a fairly serious-looking bandage on her wrist.  She explained to her coven that she had injured herself cutting open an avocado. My cynical daughter (I raised her right) speculated this represented a […]

L. Neil Smith’s The Libertarian Enterprise | The Gun Culture’s Dirty Little Secret

L. Neil Smith’s The Libertarian Enterprise | The Gun Culture’s Dirty Little Secret

  by L. Neil Smith Does the United States Constitution mean what it says? Does it say what it means? Was it written as some kind of obscure code that can only be interpreted into English by individuals with special education and credentials? Or was it written as the “operating system” for a free society, by and for ordinary […]

L. Neil Smith’s The Libertarian Enterprise | The East Is Flummoxed

L. Neil Smith’s The Libertarian Enterprise | The East Is Flummoxed

  by L. Neil Smith Foreign policy is not my cup of _kimchi_. In fact, this is the first time I can remember ever writing about it. Not even Europe figures significantly in my novels; future-wise, the Old World is irrelevant.  Like General Billy Mitchell, Homer Lea (look him up), and prophetic  others, I’ve always seen America […]

L. Neil Smith’s The Libertarian Enterprise | Bernie Sanders Wants You Dead

L. Neil Smith’s The Libertarian Enterprise | Bernie Sanders Wants You Dead

  By L. Neil Smith Sometime in the late 1950s, when I was ten or twelve years old, there was a program on the radio  called “What We Must Know About Communism”, apparently an audio treatment of a book of the same name by Harry and Bonaro Overstreet,  covering the entire subject from Hegelian dialecticism […]

L. Neil Smith’s The Libertarian Enterprise | This is Not Assault

L. Neil Smith’s The Libertarian Enterprise | This is Not Assault

    By L. Neil Smith  No more chilling and prophetic words were ever spoken by a public servant than this macabre denial of objective reality by Bill Clinton during the Paula Jones / Monica Lewinsky impeachment inquiries in 1998. But it was much more than just a run-of-the-mill idiotic remark from an unusually sleazy […]
