The New Imperialism
Sam Aurelius Milam III
15x5 Page Background GIF ImageRecently, Serbian forces were attacking the people in Kosovo.  Those people are ethnically distinct from the Serbians, and wanted their region to be independent.  The Serbians wouldn't allow it.  They destroyed houses, created thousands of refugees, and killed or wounded hundreds of people.
15x5 Page Background GIF ImageFor some time now, Russian forces have been attacking the people in Chechnya.  Those people are ethnically distinct from the Russians, and want their region to be independent.  The Russians won't allow it.  They're destroying houses, creating thousands of refugees, and killing or wounding hundreds of people.
15x5 Page Background GIF ImageIn response to Serbian activity in Kosovo, NATO launched a series of brutal and destructive air attacks against Serbia.  The action was praised as courageous and morally justified.  Since then, the U.S. government has tried every tactic to force Slobodan Milosevic from office.  Even today, it continues trying to interfere in the internal politics of Serbia.1
15x5 Page Background GIF ImageIn response to Russian aggression in Chechnya, a few politicians have asked the Russians to please stop killing people.  There isn't any sign at all of any impending NATO action against Russia.  The U.S. hasn't suggested that Boris Yeltsin should step down.
15x5 Page Background GIF ImageWhy the different response to situations that are identical, in terms of so-called "human rights" violations?  The reason is that NATO is willing to strut and thump its chest when the odds are 19 to one against a second-rate little country that can't defend itself but, when faced with a foe that might actually be dangerous, NATO suddenly has other, more pressing business, elsewhere.  While some people will excuse this as justifiable caution, I can suggest a different motive.  I believe that the attack on Serbia didn't have anything to do with "human rights" or justice. NATO intends to expand its own power and the fight with Serbia strengthened the alliance.  A fight with Russia would certainly weaken it, and maybe destroy it.
15x5 Page Background GIF ImageNATO should stop insulting our intelligence with high-sounding weasel words about moral justification.  It should stick to its original purpose of defending its member nations from aggression.  It doesn't have any business dictating the morality, beliefs, internal politics, or behavior of other nations.10x5 Page Background GIF ImageGun

"And one other note about the bombing of Belgrade during the war.  The U.S. Trade Representative Charlene Barshefsky was asked this week why negotiations with China about joining the World Trade Organization have dragged on for so long.  'What happened,' she said, 'is that men never ask for directions and mistakenly bombed the Chinese embassy, in Belgrade' ".
ABC World News Tonight with Peter Jennings, Wednesday, November 3, 1999

15x5 Page Background GIF ImageWell, I suppose it isn't really such an outrageous statement.  I suppose that it wouldn't particularly annoy me, except for one thing.  If a man dared publicly utter such a general criticism of women, he'd be denounced as a sexist pig.  The news agency that reported the statement would be inundated by feminist outrage.  Women can, with impunity, denigrate men in public, in whatever way suits them.  A man doesn't dare make the slightest criticism of women for fear of political crucifixion.

The Inescapable Conclusion
15x5 Page Background GIF ImageThe Fundamental Principles of Liberty are general.  They apply in all situations.  Tyranny is the only exception.  The Principles obviously don't operate in the USA.  Obviously, the USA is a tyranny.10x5 Page Background GIF ImageGun

The War on Muffshots
Sam Aurelius Milam III
15x5 Page Background GIF ImageOn November 10, Inside Edition ran a piece about women who're aghast upon learning that men will discreetly follow them on the street and secretly point hidden video cameras up their skirts.  I don't know where those women have been, but men have been peeking up women's skirts and down women's blouses for as long as women have been wearing skirts and blouses.  Most of us make the effort, although some of us are less discreet than others.  I heard of a man who taped a $20 bill to the floor outside his office and watched for women to bend over to pick it up.  Another man taped a mirror to the floor below his office partition adjacent to a female colleague's desk.  Video cameras are a tactical variation but otherwise nothing new.  Whether such peeking is good or bad is a matter of opinion, but it certainly shouldn't surprise anybody.
15x5 Page Background GIF ImageAnother point that should be raised is that these women are utterly unaware that they've been videotaped.  I'm reminded of the Indians who believed that their souls were stolen if their pictures were taken.  The objections raised by these women are similarly puzzling.  That is, how can they say they're harmed if they're utterly unaware of it and totally unaffected by it?  Nevertheless, they're outraged and demand an end to their "victimization".  OK, if they want to protect themselves they can easily do it.  All they need to do is wear pants, long dresses, or bathing suit bottoms under the short skirts.  Will they bother to protect themselves?  Of course not.  They'd rather demand that government do it for them by passing repressive legislation intended to regulate the behavior of men.  Such legislation is now being enacted.  Two states have already outlawed such videotaping.  As of this writing, California is in the process of becoming the third.  We can be sure that other states will fall in line because any man who dares opposition will be demonized as a pervert.
15x5 Page Background GIF ImageOK, maybe taking pictures up a woman's skirt is bad and maybe it isn't.  We all have our opinions.  However, just because something is bad doesn't necessarily mean that it should also be illegal.  As long as it's possible for this particular group of "victims" to easily, effectively, and non-coercively protect themselves, then they don't need a police state to do it for them.  Nevertheless, the War on Muffshots is under way.  Soon, extra cops will be needed on the streets to conduct Muffshot surveillance of backpacks, brief cases, and baby strollers.  We can have random Muffshot checks at work and our homes can be subject to Muffshot raids.  Cops will be able to search motor vehicles, without a warrant, for Muffshot violations.  We can have a Muffshot Czar.  The Muffshot Enforcement Agency can train dogs to sniff for cassettes at airports and schools.  Muffshot "busts" will be common.  The courts can be crowded with plaintiffs claiming that their videotapes weren't shot from an illegal angle, but from a few degrees higher, while cops busily falsify the angle measurement data.  The prisons can be filled with Muffshot violators serving three-cassette sentences.  Vice squad women, sans panties, can conduct miniskirt stings, enticing men to videotaping they "probably would have done anyway" (the perverts!).  We can have Muffshot turf wars and criminal gangs that sell Muffshot paraphernalia, including scratch 'n sniff screens, probably manufactured in somebody's bathtub.  Legally registered video cameras will be required to have lens locks and be stored in child-proof cabinets, and anyone who wants to buy one will have to submit to a three day waiting period and a background check for a Muffshot history.  Scratch 'n sniff televisions will be outlawed and TV screens will be routinely dusted for fingernail prints.
15x5 Page Background GIF ImageWell, it might not get quite that silly, but even so the entire coercive so-called "common sense" methodology of the wars on drugs, cigarettes, fireworks, pornography, domestic violence, guns, smog, terrorism, drunk driving, male-only institutions, abortion, child abuse, dolphin abuse, and every other reformer's repressive agenda can now be applied to the Muffshot War, thanks to a bunch of women who refuse to act like adults and take the simple precautions by which they could protect themselves.  In the end, they will have created thousands of times more victims, of far worse atrocities, than they would ever have numbered themselves, even by their most exaggerated claims.  You know the most ironic and predictable part?  When they're done, we'll still take a peek whenever and however we can.  Nothing they do, however outrageous or irresponsible, is going to stop it.10x5 Page Background GIF ImageMale Symbol

15x15 White Space GIF Image
15x5 Page Background GIF ImageI received the following letter to the editor in response to the November Frontiersman and didn't have enough space in the December Frontiersman to print it.

Dear Sam --
15x5 Page Background GIF ImageThe Reform party continues to magnify the barrenness of the US mainstream's political & cultural landscape.  What more convincing proof of the need for revolutionary change in US society could there be than the non-existence of viable potential leaders for an alternative party within the pale of the mainstream itself?  What more convincing proof could one ask of the mainstream's inability to regenerate itself from within, exactly because it has expressed its oppressive character by shutting out all talents but the (often unintentionally) comical?  Buchanan?  Trump?  These are the only saviors this once great society can produce?  Even the media, formerly pushing these monstrosities of contemporary mainstream culture exclusively, is starting to grasp the damning implications, & is desperately suggesting that Perot run again in his old age, or that Ventura run prematurely.  I can only suggest that Ventura now try to get maverick Republican Gov Johnson of NM to join Reform & run for president.  Johnson is libertarian in tendency, favoring low taxes & marijuana legalization.  He has little future with the Republicans as he cannot run for another term for governor due to term limits.  As a Reformist, he could run for president, speak out against the drug war on the world stage, very possibly take 5% of the vote away from drug hypocrite Bush, & very possibly become one of Reforms first senators ...  I also suggest that Ventura further turn the tables, trickster-wise, on Trump by appealing to Maria Maples to run for a seat in the House.  This would be a more appropriate way for her to combat Trumpism than by airing dirty laundry.  In her pursuit of wealth & sexual freedom (at the ski lodge, on the beach -- classic moments in US history) she truly embodies libertarian values.

Elliot;  N. Merrick, New York
