Emailed to email@example.com by current California Freedom editor Thomas Sipos. For some background on this discussion, see the comments at Thomas Sipos: On Angela Keaton and Ron Paul. Posted to IPR by Paulie. I have emailed Brian Holtz for a response, and have not yet heard back. If he chooses to respond by email or in the comments here, I can include one reasonably short response from Brian or Bruce in an update to the body of the post. Other than that, have at it in the comments!
Brian Holtz thinks that California Freedom, the newsletter of the Libertarian Party of California, which I edit, is “obsessed” with the antiwar issue.
Is it? Decide for yourself! Download FREE back issues of California Freedom at: http://www.ca.lp.org/cafreedom.shtml
I’ve been editor since June 2007. Bruce Cohen and Brian Holtz co-edited CF (with Bruce in the lead) before that. Compare their back issues with mine. Which is better? I think my issues are livelier and more interesting.
There are three libertarian meta-issues: Foreign affairs, economics, and civil liberties. The February California Freedom (which I turned in last week) has two foreign affairs articles, two economics articles, and three civil liberties articles (one each on gay marriage, medical marijuana, and internet privacy). Plus, articles on winning elections and fundraising.
Yes, I cover war and intervention almost every issue. And much else. If a libertarian publication has at least one economics article per issue, is it “obsessed” with economics?
Alas, some liberventionists are obsessed with silencing all talk of war, foreign aid, and intervention. They know that merely talking about these “divisive” issues will reveal them as being on the minority and losing side of this “divide.”
Anyway, download my back issues. Download Bruce & Brian’s back issues. Compare them. Which is better? YOU decide!
