L. Neil Smith’s The Libertarian Enterprise — The Curious Nature of Revolution

. By L. Neil Smith  Sometimes I wish that my soapbox were just a little bit taller. Over the past two or three decades, I have more-or-less accidentally made a number of historically significant predictions in various of my books and essays that have turned out to be correct. In 1977, for example, in my […]

L. Neil Smith’s The Libertarian Enterprise — It’s Socialism, Stupid!

. By L. Neil Smith  Somewhere between 100 million and 200 million individuals died, in the 20th Century alone, owing to the myriad failures and atrocities of socialism. That’s in incidents _not_ connected with warfare. (which amounts to another couple of hundred million). Whole regional populations were deliberately starved to death because they refused to […]

L. Neil Smith’s The Libertarian Enterprise — Arguing with a Snowflake

. By L. Neil Smith  Recently, out of the blue. I received a Facebook communication from an old friend of perhaps 30 years who has apparently become another Precious Snowflake. It was nothing but one long, hysterical rant, as you will see. I decided to answer the man point-for-point, not because I thought it will […]

L. Neil Smith’s The Libertarian Enterprise — DRIVING AWAY THE VULTURES

. By L. Neil Smith  Drooling down from their metaphorical saguaro cactus perches, following last week’s  baseball diamond shootings of Republican congressional representatives and their staffs, the usual Democratic Party vultures were unable to decently restrain themselves, or their vile mouths, even for half a day. Reporters couldn’t resist bringing up the insane shooting of […]

L. Neil Smith’s THE LIBERTARIAN ENTERPRISE — Follow the Money!

. By L. Neil Smith  Any individual, these days, with more than a couple of “little gray cells” to rub together (of course this automatically excludes most Hollywood types and _all_ left wing media and politicians) frequently wonders why Europe in general and Germany in particular seem as Hell-bent on committing cultural suicide as a […]

L. Neil Smith’s THE LIBERTARIAN ENTERPRISE — Choosing Sides

. By L. Neil Smith  Politics in our nation may seem to be confusing at the moment — a bewildering, surrealistic  mess — with various individuals acting out a half-baked melodrama that appears to make no sense, but things begin to clear up quickly if we adopt another model than we have traditionally used to […]

L. Neil Smith’s THE LIBERTARIAN ENTERPRISE — Imaginary Crimes

. By L. Neil Smith  I have often compared American socio-politics today, with religio-politics during the Tudor era in England. King Henry VIII and Elizabeth I. In those days, all that it took to get your enemies out of power and pointed toward the head-chopping block was to catch them saying publicly or writing the […]

L. Neil Smith’s THE LIBERTARIAN ENTERPRISE — The Prime Minister’s Niece

. By L. Neil Smith    I once had a political argument with a British Prime Minister’s niece. She was my then-wife’s best friernd and they had gone to college together. At that time, the mid-70s, the Irish Republican Army was up to its old tricks, blowing things up and killing innocent people. They had […]

L. Neil Smith’s THE LIBERTARIAN ENTERPRISE — I’m Back!

. By L. Neil Smith You may have noticed that there wasn’t any _The Libertarian Enterprise_ last weekend. That’s because our mighty Editor-in-Chief Ken Holder and his esteemed and valorous wife Pat were struck down with what doctors here were insisting on calling by its semi-formal name, “influenza”. My own wife Cathy and I preceded […]

L. Neil Smith’s THE LIBERTARIAN ENTERPRISE — Straitjacket America

. By L. Neil Smith It’s very difficult to convey the unreality, the surrealism of things that those of us who think for a living (or at least a serious hobby) have been subjected to, since the General Election last November, and especially since Inauguration Day in January. The other day I found myself embroiled […]
