Your Site May Harm Everyone's Computers

Google's infamous site warning "This site may harm your computer" had popped up all over Google's servers about over 40 minutes ago. This was even happening while I was trying to do some research on the search engine for a post I'm writing for this blog.

One blogger complained about this on his site, writing the following:

I’ve logged onto 6 computers in 4 different states, and two in other countries. I’m getting warnings for every link in the SERPS with Google attempting to block traffic to them.

Here's a couple of pics to show what I mean here:

(The last screenshot was taken by the blogger who issued the alert.)

Maybe it's me, but is Google engaging in systematic censorship or what? Considering it's embracing the omnipotent state, it wouldn't be a surprise. After all, the once-hailed, once-innovative company has become a mouthpiece for the Ol' Great Messiah himself.

This is what happens when government and Big Business (like Google, for instance) collude, creating what happens to be the Fascistic State that we've come to loathe today.

Announcing Libertarian Papers: A New Journal

From the LRC blog, posted by Stephan Kinsella:

The Mises Institute is proud to announce the launch of a new, online journal today: Libertarian Papers. Edited by yours truly and boasting a impressive and geographically- and academically diverse Editorial Board, Libertarian Papers is publishing its first seven articles today, one per hour starting at 8:00 a.m. CST. These include articles by two eminent libertarian thinkers, Jan Narveson (writing on Nozick, justice, and restitution) and Robert Higgs (on depressions and war). These are followed by two, count 'em, two, previously unpublished memos from ... Ludwig von Mises and Murray Rothbard. Mises's is a memo dated New Year's Eve, 1946, to F.A. Hayek, relaying his concerns and advice about the then-nascent Mont Pèlerin Society. Rothbard's is a 1961 "confidential" memo the Volker Fund, about libertarian tactics and strategy. Provocative, fascinating stuff.

The last three articles to be published today are a fascinating three-part exchange between Nicolás Maloberti and Joshua Katz about libertarianism, positive rights, and "Possibility of the Legitimate State."

Arrested For Touching A Plant

Via Rob Wicks:

In the words of legendary singer/songwriter Bob Marley, "Get up, stand up, stand up for your right." The heroic Andrew Carroll decided to stand up for his in the city of Keene, New Hampshire. As expected, the police arrived shortly thereafter. Note the onlookers' apt description of the situation in which this peaceful young man is "getting arrested for touching a plant."

Some video here and here. There is also an interview with Andrew.
