Overview

Selected Salvos 2 is the second collection of political, social and cultural articles from the Loose Cannon Libertarian archives in the ongoing Fun&Freedom series. Just as the original Selected Salvos anthology presented a score of articles in a writing style described by one reviewer as "bordering H.L. Mencken and Groucho Marx" with its "quick wit and colorful turn of a phrase" and another observed that the content "manages to sound a bit like Harry Browne" this entry in the series continues that tradition with more of the same. But this time there's a theme: Playboynomics, in which a pair of articles, "Tax Dollars for Sex Scholars" and "The Playboy School of Economics," chastises the use of taxpayer takings for academic research while other commentaries criticize similar economic abuses. It's a great companion to Selected Salvos 1. Both belong side by side between the libertarian bookends on your bookshelf.

Garry Reed has been a fried for many years. We've talked a lot about most aspects of freedom and politics, not always in agreement by a long shot, but I was always pleased to see that he would er on the side of individual sovereignty, even when he didn't immediately embrace the full extent of the potential because pragmatism kept getting in the way. Gradually, with interesting back and fill at times, he came to understand that electoral politics could not even be justified by any kind of pragmatism. Slavery, by any name, is still slavery. And theft is still theft, no matter how many people want to justify theft. Garry has collected articles from the last fifteen years or so into two small volumes. They describe the journey from Libertarian political apologist, to the voluntarist he has become. Unlike so many, this journey is taken with wit, much terrific insight into humanity, and an unbelievable number of plain old belly laughs. And he paints even his sometimes painful transition with humor and good cheer. If you have also made this journey, or are even wondering about it, these books will do you much good, and will serve as a springboard, perhaps, to conversation with friends who remain stuck in pragmatism, or actually still believe that there is some magic about electoral politics that can "restore" freedom in America. Show them it just isn't so.
