Recommended Posts

Your proprietor's schedule constraints have collided with a backlog of thought-provoking and enjoyable writing from the liberty movement. Over the next three days, I'll post teaser quotes and links from same to this blog. I hope you enjoy them.

I'll add links to Part II and Part III here once I post them over the next couple of days.
