Special to L. Neil Smith’s The Libertarian Enterprise
New Patreon patrons (hint, hint!) will now be billed by Patreon on the day of the month on which they signed up. Prior to this change, patrons were billed on that day, and again on the first of the month, which could be rather tacky if you signed up on the 27th of the month. Existing patrons will still be billed on the first of the month.
Our Blast from the Past is L. Neil’s contenplation on how to pick a presidential candidate.
I’ve known Leslie Fish on and off for years, meeting her at science fiction conventions from time to time. She is a prolific filk song writer, and published science fiction author.

“Tyranny has had a makeover. It’s no longer a boot stamping on a human face forever. It isn’t a gruff cop dragging you into a cell for thinking or expressing a ‘dangerous’ idea. It isn’t a priest strapping you to a breaking wheel. No, authoritarianism is well-dressed now. It’s polite. It has a broad smile and speaks in a soft voice. It is delivered not via a soldier’s boot to the cranium but with a caring liberal head-tilt. And its name is Jacinda Ardern.” Jacinda Ardern and the woke war on free speech
