Zitate L. Neil Smith

„Then they marry and see each other mostly in profile for the rest of their lives.“

—  L. Neil Smith

"Back to the Trees!"
Kontext: I suspect that our ancestors adapted to bipedalism for the view above the level of the grass, as much as for anything else. Later, they discovered that they could carry things if they remained upright.
Change of posture brought other changes. Notice, for example, that human beings court face-to-face. Then they marry and see each other mostly in profile for the rest of their lives. But see each other they do, while animals, at least judging from my cats, hardly ever look one another in the face. Ultimately, I believe that eye contact changed everything.

„The War on Drugs is over. Drugs won.“

—  L. Neil Smith

"The Brontosaurus in the Broom Closet".
Kontext: The War on Drugs is over. Drugs won. It's time to stop wasting money, destroying lives, grinding up the Bill of Rights, and giving greater and greater power to the jackbooted thugs, in an unnecessary and futile attempt to enforce one group's ideas about what chemicals and vegetables some other group ought to manufacture, cultivate, distribute, purchase, possess, and consume. Repeal the drug laws, and prices will drop a thousandfold, driving most participants out of the business.

„All real libertarians are dedicated to the eventual elimination of all taxes.“

—  L. Neil Smith

"The Unnecessary Depression".
Kontext: All real libertarians are dedicated to the eventual elimination of all taxes. That's one way you can tell them from the fakes. If anyone asks what government will run on, tell them it's not our problem. If they can create a 'government' that doesn't initiate force and steal from us, that doesn't break things and kill people in the enforcement of the will of parasites, that doesn't subsist by beating individuals up and killing them, they're welcome to try. Just leave us out of it altogether.

„Any politico who's afraid of his constituents being armed, should be.“

—  L. Neil Smith

"The Brontosaurus in the Broom Closet".
Kontext: Any politico who's afraid of his constituents being armed, should be. Leaders of the anti-gun movement (for the most part, politicians who enthusiastically advocate confiscatory taxation and government control of everything) realize that a populace is much easier to herd, loot — and dispose of — if it has been stripped of its weapons. The naked fraud and transparent fascism of victim disarmament must be eradicated through the repeal of all gun laws at every level of government.

„I'm tired of being considered some kind of criminal or dangerous throwback for no other reason than that I value, exercise, and defend my rights under the first ten Amendments to the United States Constitution.“

—  L. Neil Smith

"I'm Tired (With Apologies to Pearl Bailey and Madeleine Kahn) Presented to the second annual Liberty Round Table Conclave near Estes Park, Colorado, 2 July 1998 http://www.ncc-1776.org/tle1998/libe40-19980709-01.html.

„We live in times of wonderful technology and crappy politics. The task before us now is not to let the latter destroy the former.“

—  L. Neil Smith

"A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to Des Moines," http://www.ncc-1776.org/tle2008/tle474-20080629-02.html 29 June 2008.
