    Silver! Where did you buy it?

    Howdy all…first…this is awesome! lol I can’t believe I’m actually in it! Thanks everyone for doing this and putting this most excellent website together. So proud and happy to have a part. 🙂 Ok, so I’m looking to buy silver, but don’t know where to buy because a) I’m totally unfamiliar with the process an db) there seems to be lots and lots of options and it’s a little overwhelming. I’ve dealt with Amagi metals before, and I know they are pretty cool (one of their reps is ancap (they sponsored Speak Liberty NOW), and they’ve even posed on JT’s Facebook wall before…lol), and I’ve spoken to a rep with EuroPacific Capital previously. He was great, but they wanted a minimum of 5k or 10k )I forget which now). Shoudl I just go with a rep from somwhere, or does anyone have any suggestions? Thanks in advance! Cheers!

    Who is the most important libertarian writer ever?

    Informal poll: Who is the most important writer in the whole libertarian tradition? Thomas Paine Rose Wilder Lane Murray Rothbard Ayn Rand (I know, I know, she doesn’t want to be on this list, but she is) JRR Tolkien Some other? I’m looking through the table of contents in Jeff Riggenbach’s The Libertarian Tradition and trying figure out who deserves the top spot.

    Minimum Manners for Men

    I sincerely hope that this post does not offend anyone. Really. If you are offended, please accept my apology. But this is free speech right? I just have to say this. People talk about the war between the sexes. Both sides can do things to fix the problem but because men cannot control what women do, and can only control themselves, I would like to offer 5 simple points of manners/norms to de-escalate. I offer my iron-clad guarantee that this will work. No need to make a big show.  No production. Just make it casual and normal. No words need ever be exchanged. Just do it and watch the magic. I’m strongly of the opinion that a major reason for the persistence of the kind of “feminism” that actually bugs and scares men has to do with the collapse of standards of behavior by men. These fives rules fix that. 1. Men should hold doors for women. No matter what. This is true for entering any public or private space. The woman goes first. The one exception is the turning carousel. Those can be awkward but the man usually goes first. 2. Men must always and forever open the car door for women, no matter what, forever and ever, wherever, whenever. You don’t have to go around the car to let her out unless she sits and waits for this (which she will not unless it is  formal occasion). 3. A man always lights a woman’s cigarette. You can do this if it is in her mouth, or, she asks for one from you, you can light it in your mouth and hand it to her, which can be just a bit erotic. 4. The first time any woman comes to any table for eating, ever, all men must gesture toward standing, and the man closet to her MUST pull out her chair. I know this seems old world but if you do it, you will forever be considered the most amazing man ever. If she gets up again and comes back, you do not have to do anything, and, in fact, should not. This is a one-time deal. 5. A man must never ever impose himself physically on a woman, no matter what, whether it is sex or kissing or slapping on the rear or touching her in provocative ways or even holding her hand when she has not signaled interest. If you do make some physical move, and she says no, even slightly hints at it, your only job is to respond by backing away, no matter what. Forget the old movies and forget the scenes in sex novels. Times are changed. You must signal that you are not a threat, and this means listening when she hints at no. I’m happy to hear more ideas. Or corrections. Or emendations. I really do believe that doing these things — very simple but highly symbolic and even substantive — can make the war between the sexes reduce in importance.

    Dressing for Success: a possible Liberty.me guide by Jeffrey Tucker?

    Could this be a topic for a possible Liberty.Me Guide, that Jeffrey might do? I do love his style and would be interested in getting tips off him.
