Down With Censorship!*

This entry is part 8 of 22 in the series Great Libertarian Memes

First, let’s get clear on what kind of censorship we oppose. We oppose any censorship by government, because only the government has the “authority” to legally use force against you for expressing your ideas. Your neighbor might kick you off his property if you say something he dislikes, or a privately owned newspaper can refuse to publish your letter to the editor, but neither should legally use force against you to shut you up.

What does it mean to be an effective local activist?

As I’ve aged, I’ve found myself transformed from scientist to engineer, from artist to performer, from philosopher to pragmatist. It’s a pretty typical pattern. Be it accident or serendipity, this journey has coincided with a sudden interest in politics. My middle aged pragmatism has paid off, personally, in this new hobby. I’ve definitely discovered that, at least in the political realm, experience is, for me, the best teacher I can find.

Proponents of “gun free” campuses often say there is no reason to believe that guns on campus would prevent violence on campus. They feel confident saying this merely because guns are not currently allowed on campuses so we cannot amass any evidence. But to the contrary, this evidence does exist. Law-abiding citizens can and have used guns to prevent violence at schools in multiple instances.

The Californicrisis and Bank Nationalization

When an economy undergoes a contraction, governments collect less revenue simply because less is happening and less is being bought. Consumer cutbacks are a good and healthy occurrence – individuals reduce consumption in favor of saving, and the economy can resume a sustainable growth pattern. The loss of revenue, however, is obviously despised by government bureaucracy.
