GESUNDHEIT DUMMY! (P) By Rex May JoNa Books, 2000 Readers of Liberty magazine and National Review have been seeing Baloo's cartoons for years, but those unfamiliar with his work have a delightful opportunity to discover why Liberty bills Baloo as "the best cartoonist in the world."

The Political Compass & Why Libertarianism is not Right Wing
by J C Lester:- 
   The political distinction between left and right remains ideologically muddled. This was not always so, but a return to the pristine usage is impractical. Putting a theory of social liberty to one side, this essay defends the interpretation of left-wing as personal-choice and right-wing as property-choice. This allows an axis that is north/choice (or state-free) and south/control (or state-ruled). This Political Compass clarifies matters without being tendentious or too complicated. It shows that what is called ‘libertarianism’ is north-wing. A quiz gives the reader’s Political Compass reading.
