      Dear All,

      Three publications to recommend:

      John Kersey, The Freeman on the Land Movement: Grass Roots Libertarianism
      in Action

      Those of us who hold that libertarianism is a process that rests upon a
      series of logical and connected principles would hold that these
      principles are capable of discovery by any who choose to look for them.
      The developments in English law during the post-1997 era have placed an
      increasing regulatory burden upon the citizen which has been perceived by
      a number of people as unjust, petty and politically motivated. In that
      situation, it is unsurprising that some people have sought to exercise a
      degree of independence from the state, and that in the course of
      establishing the means by which such independence may be brought about,
      they have re-examined the relationship between the state and the
      individual in law. Their resulting movement is of profound interest to
      all concerned with the future development of libertarian ideas in England.

      David Webb on the Managerial State

      The basic question of politics is "who does what to whom?" This was put a
      little more succintly in Russian by Vladimir Lenin as "kto, kogo", "who?
      whom?" He was a Marxist with a fondness for class analysis of society, but
      that does not reduce the force of his view that the fundamental facts
      behind any society are who the ruling class are and who the ruled.

      The Passive Smoking Scare: When Ruling Class Propaganda Masquerades as
      Science, by Sean Gabb

      As science, this Report is worthless. Common sense alone should tell us
      that. Its purpose, beyond any reasonable doubt, is not to describe the
      world, but to justify the power of those who rule the world. It is meant
      to justify taxes and other aggressions against the masses, and to justify
      the employment of an army of clients. Modern states have no precedent in
      the scale of what they can steal, and no single ideology is nowadays
      sufficient to legitimise what they do. But the anti-smoking movement is an
      important strand in the coalition of forces that comprise the managerial
      state. Together with political correctness, environmentalism, health and
      safety, and a general desire to regulate every aspect of our lives, the
      war against tobacco is an equivalent of the obsession with religious
      conformity or the passion for big military establishments that legitimised
      earlier ruling classes.
