Libertarians need less strategy — and more principle!

"I can only wonder where are the principled people of action today -- the Paul Reveres and the Patrick Henrys ('Give me liberty or give me death!')? In fact, as of the date of this article I know of no other website, libertarian or otherwise, which has removed donation links to PayPal and/or credit cards in support of WikiLeaks. This lack of inaction to implement strong ostracism of all companies refusing to provide services to WikiLeaks makes it very clear that among those calling themselves libertarian, particularly among the free marketers and Miseans who still retain their Amazon links, the principled are damned few and far between at the present time!"

"The Pentagon pushed back Friday against news reports that accuse the US military of mistreating [Bradley Manning], calling the allegations 'blatantly false.' ... The Pentagon denies that Manning is being held in solitary confinement. ... '[J]ust being in a cell by yourself doesn’t constitute solitary confinement,' says Col. Dave Lapan. 'He is surrounded by other people' in adjacent cells .... Manning can watch television for one hour per day and read newspapers, military officials say." (12/17/10)

"Anyone who values the First Amendment ought to oppose the campaign to 'get' Assange by any means necessary. In a free society, you can't just 'change the law' to persecute someone you don't like, and you can't abuse your position to silence speech you oppose." (12/14/10)
