# Anarchie Bunker at - Daddy, why did we have to attack Iraq? - questions and answers about U.S. foreign policy. Hehe. [geeks]

Q: So basically, what you're saying is that we attacked Iraq because George W. Bush hears voices in his head?

A: Yes! You finally understand how the world works. Now close your eyes, make yourself comfortable, and go to sleep. Good night.

"War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things; the decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling which thinks that nothing is worth war is much worse.

"A man who has nothing for which he is willing to fight; nothing he cares about more than his own personal safety; is a miserable creature who has no chance of being free, unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself."

# National Rifle Association - is online. They are currently providing it free of charge, but they want your name, zip code, and email address. No response from that email address was required, so you can let your conscience decide whether to tell them the truth. Requires Flash. [kaba]

# Henry Appleton at Against Politics - Anarchism, True and False - a clarification of anarchism from way back in 1884. [root]

The Anarchist does not want to destroy all existing institutions with a crash and then inaugurate the substituting process on their ruins. He simply asks to be let alone in substituting false systems now, so that they may gradually fall to pieces by their own dead weight. He asks the humble privilege of being allowed to set up a free bank in peaceable competition with the government subsidized class bank on the opposite corner. He asks the privilege of establishing a private post office in fair competition with the government established one. He asks to be let alone in establishing his title to the soil by free occupation, cultivation, and use rather than by a title hampered by vested rights which were designed to keep the masses landless. He asks to be allowed to set up his domestic relations on the basis of free love in peaceable competition with ecclesiastically ordered love, which is a crime against Nature and the destroyer of love, order, and harmony itself. He asks to be taxed upon what has been robbed from him under a machine in which he has practically no voice and no choice. In short, the Anarchist asks for free land, free money, free trade, free love, and the right to free competition with the existing order at his own cost and on his own responsibility, - liberty.

# Joel Simon at The Libertarian Enterprise - Temporary Worker, Permanent Tourist - losing his wife and his corporate job has taught Mr. Simon that he can live on a lot less than the income to which he had grown accustomed, and more easily do so under the radar of Uncle Sugar. [tle]

# Wing Enterprises - Little Giant Ladder System - I saw this on the TV yesterday afternoon. Looks like a very nice ladder. Costs it too.
