Who are these Tyranny Fighters?
And who is Julian Heicklen?

For nearly three years these rights activists were heckled, harassed, hounded, arrested, abused, prosecuted and jailed -- and Julian himself was injected more than once with powerful antipsychotic drugs -- for committing the "crime" of peacefully distributing leaflets on public sidewalks to people who voluntarily accepted them.
"Originally, I went to the US District Court in Manhattan to inform juries of their rights. For me this is now the secondary issue. The primary issue has become freedom of speech. Jury nullification has become the vehicle to reclaim this right."--Julian Heicklen

Stopping the violence: replace law enforcement with rights protection

Stopping the violence: replace law enforcement with rights protection

Individuals are not well served by institutions that create manmade laws conjured up by a Political Ruling Class and blindly imposed on them by an Enforcer Class...


Politically correct robots: Where are the PC police?

Politically correct robots: Where are the PC police?

Political correctness is an obsession with America's political left. They had better get ahead of the offensive term "robot" before those life forms become sentient...


Reason is the enemy of the left, friend of the libertarian

Reason is the enemy of the left, friend of the libertarian

The anti-freedom anti-individualist anti-voluntaryist crowd sees libertarians as their enemy yet knows absolutely nothing about libertarianism...

BOOKS 1 & 2

in Garry Reed's "Fun&Freedom" Series


Selected Salvos

 from the

Loose Cannon Libertarian

As a longtime Libertarian Opinionizer I'm committed to the notion that life should be both fun and free. Each book contains a score of my earlier "fun&freedom" writings on libertarian political, social and cultural issues. Subjects as far afield as jury rights, the drug war, terrorist attacks, supreme court decisions, pot puffing and possibly the world's first book review review (yes, you read that right, a book review review) all serve as fit fodder for my cannon fusillades.

Laudatory Locutions from the Libertarian Literati


"Garry Reed’s writing style is something bordering H.L. Mencken and Groucho Marx. His quick wit and colorful turn of a phrase gives the reader something to chuckle about while being informed." - Robert A. McKeown, The Blue Collar Economist


"Definitely someone to be learned from if you’re a libertarian interested in honing your writing skills." - Henry Moore, The Libertarian liquidationist


"Salvos is stimulating, amusing, and engaging." - David Lloyd Sutton, San Francisco Book Review


"Mr. Reed has a fun style and breathes new life into the subject of Libertarian Politics and Philosophy." - Andrew Curtiss, Fort Worth Libertarian Examiner


"...manages to sound a bit like Harry Browne at times." - Matthew Reece, Charlotte Libertarian Philosophy Examiner


"His pieces combine a good dose of skilled writing combined with man-on-the-street demeanor." - Brian Patrick, Free-Market.Net
