Novus Ordo

I’ve been a subscriber since 1991 when American Survival Guide went belly up and Backwoods Home bought their subscriber list and sent me a two issue trial – been hooked ever since.  It’s been my premiere source of motivation all these years.  The annual anthologies are a good thing to collect as most of the articles are things that are still valuable years later.

In addition, I think I’ve caught some of their type of libertarianism – especially the “leave me the hell alone” strain…;)

If you can’t afford the rather steep subscription ($35 per year/8 issues), if you just check the website each month many of the same articles are posted there for free.

Thanks for posting – there are many experts there and many good stories of people to left society to forge their own way.  Jackie Clay, Claire Wolfe, Dorothy Ainsworth, etc.

Arms discourage and keep the invader and plunderer in awe, and preserve order in the world as well as property... mischief would ensue were the law-abiding deprived of the use of them.
