L. Neil Smith’s THE LIBERTARIAN ENTERPRISE | Instead Of An Article

L. Neil Smith’s THE LIBERTARIAN ENTERPRISE | Instead Of An Article

  By L. Neil Smith I had originally planned to spend the back end of this week writing a whizz-bang piece on one of any number of topics that badly need addressing. Instead, I profligately elected to consume my time and energy writing my current novel, _Rosalie’s World_, a fourth Ngu family story — involving Wilson Ngu, Jasmeen Khalidov […]

L. Neil Smith’s The Libertarian Enterprise | Enough is Enough

L. Neil Smith’s The Libertarian Enterprise | Enough is Enough

   By L. Neil Smith        “A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the      security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and      bear Arms, shall not be infringed.” — The Second Amendment The United States Constitution The twenty-seven simple, easily-understood words of the Second Amendment to the […]

  By L. Neil Smith  I apologize to the entire Earth, to everybody living on it, to all creatures great and small, and to the blue heavens high above. I apologize for being born a member of that tiny and insignificant fraction of the human race which, having been cruelly deprived of melanin by a heartless Auntie Evolution […]

L. Neil Smith’s The Libertarian Enterprise | Instead of a wall

  By L. Neil Smith Over the decades, I’ve thought a lot about borders and immigration. More recently I became an enthusiastic advocate of Donald Trump’s border Wall and it’s been a strange, kind of crawly experience to listen to the left wing’s insane and infantile objections to it. Hell, I grew up in Newfoundland where the […]

There Is No Such Thing As “Socialism”

There Is No Such Thing As “Socialism”

  by L. Neil Smith  “The goal of socialism is communism.” — V. I. Lenin . When I wrote the celebrated space pirate novel _Henry Martyn_, way  back in 1988, I wanted it to be about an ancient star-spanning  civilization, not entirely unlike our own, based on _euphemism_ — a  culture in which nobody ever […]

L. Neil Smith’s The Libertarian Enterprise | Maybe Even Trilobites!

L. Neil Smith’s The Libertarian Enterprise | Maybe Even Trilobites!

  By L. Neil Smith Every single bird and mammal I can think of, even some reptiles and fish, will exhibit something that ethologists call “threat display” whenever it feels menaced. Dogs and cats, horses and cattle, geese and pigs all engage in what amounts to a form of violence reducing behavior, growling, snarling, puffing up with poison spines, […]

L. Neil Smith’s The Libertarian Enterprise | Massa Bloomberg Speaks!

  By L. Neil Smith I have never liked or respected Michael R. Bloomberg, even the slightest bit. This, you may remember, is the hyper-authoritarian specimen who, as Mayor of New York City, attempted to employ the full force of the law — 33,000 badges, assorted pistols, revolvers, shotguns, nightsticks, tear gas, handcuffs, belly chains, maybe even brass knuckles […]

L. Neil Smith’s The Libertarian Enterprise | Mysteries of the Socialist ‘Mind’

L. Neil Smith’s The Libertarian Enterprise | Mysteries of the Socialist ‘Mind’

  by L. Neil Smith For an individual supposedly sporting a bachelor’s degree in economics and “international relations” (whatever the hell that is), Congressional wannabe and Democratic Socialist _wunderkind_ Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez seems to know very little about either. Asked about economics, for example, the crazy-eyed cutie immediately falls back on the worst kind of Marxo-Keynesian garbage, and, frustrated by her grievous […]

L. Neil Smith’s The Libertarian Enterprise | Let’s Jail the Kiddies!

  by L. Neil Smith A long time ago, in a galaxy not that far away,  I was an auxiliary or reserve police officer, with a gun, a badge, genuine false arrest insurance, and everything. I signed up for a variety of reasons. The three greatest “authorities” on police work in a future libertarian society were (a) the Head […]

L. Neil Smith’s The Libertarian Enterprise | The Fermi Paradox Resolved

L. Neil Smith’s The Libertarian Enterprise | The Fermi Paradox Resolved

  by L. Neil Smith In 1954, the dashing atomic physicist Enrico Fermi, who constructed the first nuclear reactor, asked a casual question of his buddies over coffee: given what seemed to be the overwhelming likelihood that there are thousands of intelligent species living elsewhere in the galaxy, and there probably had been for millions of years, why hadn’t […]
