Special to L. Neil Smith’s The Libertarian Enterprise

The sky will not fall as they conform to the Second Amendment as 43 other states have done.
Stephen P. Halbrook

This issue we cast a steely gaze northward. R. W. Gillespie gives us a view of Canadian current events. Trucker’s Convoy, anyone? In our Blast From the Past, L. Neil Smith takes on a certain Canadian rag, which used some very offensive language. Sarah A Hoyt gives us a taxonomy of trolls — the on-line flavor. Our editor is concerned for his own safety, and you should be concerned for yours, too.

And the thing about really supporting the Constitution is that you do not get to pick and choose. I can’t choose my favorite Amendment, the easy one, the First Amendment, and then shy away from the glass-clear directive of the Second Amendment, simply as a result of my own cultural discomfort. You have to stand up for it all, if you are to call yourself a supporter of the Constitution.
— Dr. Naomi Wolf

It’s Independence Day. Not July 4th. Independence Day. Do you celebrate December 25th?

The Science Fiction & Fantasy Writers of America (SFWA) mainitains a list of contacts for the estates of deceased SF writers. Should you be looking for permission to reprint some fine science fiction or fantasy, start here.

Should cops have “qualified immunity” for actions for which they have been convicted and imprisoned?

Why I left the left: The egalitarian, pro-worker left is gone and it’s not coming back.

Joe Biden’s Submissive — and Highly Revealing — Embrace of Saudi Despots: Biden’s immediate abandonment of his 2020 vow to turn the Saudis into “pariahs,” and his increasing support for the regime, shows the core deceit of U.S. propaganda.
(Editor’s note: This is a long and detailed piece on the perfidy of recent American administrations. Greenwald even mentions the option of turning American drillers loose as an alternative to buying oil from nasty regimes like the Saudis or Russians, an interesting turn for an American liberal.)
