We often joke that each new Free Radical magazine is the best one yet. This latest issue really is the best one yet. Issue 74 of The Free Rad tackles all the popular delusions that threaten life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness, and gives you the ammunition to defend yourself against the purveyors of misery who promote them.

In this Free Radical, find out about:

  • The tightening environmental noose, and how, in their push to punish emitters, the high priests of the state religion of environmentalism are well on their way to criminalising productive activity altogether.
  • Global warming -- does the latest UN report mean "the panic is officially over"? Find out inside from the man who took down Sir Nicholas Stern.
  • What's the inside word on Richard Dawkins and 'The God Delusion,' why has the delusion lasted so long and why does it infect morality so -- and what does the God delusion and its wall-to-wall sackcloth and ashes have to do with the environmental delusion of doom and gloom?
  • What makes talkback king Leighton Smith tick? And he seems so sensible, so why isn't he a libertarian?
  • The man who took a knife to a gun fight, and why the police want to crucify the man who didn’t.

All this and more, much more, including more leaked billboards (some of which are below), news of ethnic fundamentalism in New Zealand, more bans on free speech, the case for a new scientific enlightenment, why Sweden works (or appears to) ... and some welcome signs of victory over Nanny State. All this and more in the Free Radical magazine -- 74 blows for freedom and still going strong.

This is compulsory reading for everyone who swears off compulsion. Enlightening reading for everyone who values Enlightenment culture. Good reading for everyone who likes a good read. The Free Radical -- "a magazine of rare courage and intellect," says George Reisman.

Leighton Smith

Ross Elliot's picture

Leighton's an interesting case, isn't he? The prototypical conservative, and a really nice guy. It's only because New Zealand media is so starved for voices such as his that he enjoys the profile he does.

But he's also symptomatic of the problem: he's having a dollar each way. He wants capitalism, but not too much of it. He can't stomach a Randian view of the world so his morality degenerates into faith. His views on drugs, etc. are based upon the idea that safety & security come before freedom. And because he doesn't actually get that the chimera of safety is the biggest threat to freedom, he can only shake his head and wonder why western civilisation is sliding into the abyss.

That said, he's the most widely listened to voice of semi-sanity we have in this country, and for that I'm grateful.

Further, I would have thought Lindsay was the perfect fill-in for Leighton while he was away on his lengthy holidays. I mean, Kerre Woodham? C'mon!
