For various reasons (well, mainly money), the fourth issue of the Molinari Institute’s left-libertarian publication The Industrial Radical has been delayed for nearly a year; but today it is finally at the printer. Issue I.4 features articles by William Anderson, B-psycho, Jason Byas, Kevin Carson, Nathan Goodman, Irfan Khawaja, Tom Knapp, Smári McCarthy, Grant Mincy, Anna Morgenstern, Sheldon Richman, Amir Taaki, Mattheus von Guttenberg, Darian Worden, and your humble correspondent, on topics ranging from the Manning / Snowden whistleblower cases, the protests in Brazil, deference to authority, America’s foreign policy morass, Obama’s war on the environment, and the myth of 19th-century laissez-faire to alternative currencies, identity politics and intersectionality, abortion opponents as rape apologists, the Trayvon Martin / George Zimmerman case, the inside scoop on PorcFest, and why anarcho-capitalism cannot be a form of capitalism.
Issue 2.1 will follow soon thereafter, and we’ll be on an accelerated schedule until we’re caught up.

Over at C4SS I’ve posted the abstract to a paper on Left-Libertarianism: Its Past, Its Present, Its Prospects that I’ll be presenting at the MANCEPT 2014 Workshop on the Current State of Libertarian Philosophy in Manchester UK in September.
As it happens, Kevin Carson has a more detailed post up on the same topic: What Is Left-Libertarianism?
Read them both – or be left out of all the cool conversations among the cool people in the corridors of counterpower!
I’ve also posted some of Baum’s comments (partly disingenuous, I argue) on his own writing methods here.
I remember watching this show, and particularly this closing scene, on tv sometime between 1972 and 1974 (i.e. ages 8-10). It caused “Giant Robot!” to become permanently embedded in my vocabulary.
I also remember thinking (not precisely in these words) that if the proportion of explosion-caused-by-destroying-the-monster to explosion-caused-by destroying-the-monster’s-fingernail is no greater than the proportion of the monster to its fingernail, the bigger explosion wouldn’t be enough to destroy the Earth.
In other news, the following promos look generally promising:
So last week I was in Vegas for the APEE, where I got to meet C4SS comrade Nathan Goodman (here’s his contribution to our Spooner panel). Then zipped off to San Diego for the Pacific APA and a panel on Eric Roark’s new book.
It’s end-of-semester time here at Auburn so not much time for blogging. More later. If you like people being cut in half I have an upcoming project that may interest you.
