091517961X Brand New! Perfect for Resale, Support Radical Independent Booksellers With Kids to Feed! 1999 edition Trade paperback (US). Glued binding. 72 p. Audience: General/trade. This booklet was written by Dr Wilson following debate in Ireland about whether divorce is against "natural law". I remember seeing the coverage about this on British tv when this was occurring, in the mid 80s, and I thought then that Ireland must be a very backward country to ban divorce and condoms, for "natural law" reasons. Wilson contributed to a debate on this in an Irish "libertarian" publication, but found his comments intercut with interjections from the editor, and then wrote this, in which he presents evidence that so-called libertarians can be highly illiberal. A great read. He makes the important case that those who "believe" they are doing the right thing are dangerous, as they think that their own interpretation of natural law is the right interpretation for everyone. He also looks at what constitutes natural law in different cultures. debate in Ireland appears especially baffling; he reports that the debate included concern that machines were against natural law. My conclusion after reading this was that perhaps the only way to avoid controversy about abusing nature and natural law is for us all to live like tribal aboriginal peoples.

More Description

From the far reaches of the human mind, come these tales of unrestrained, anti-authoritarianism. No government, no leaders, no authority, no rules, and complete freedom of action Egoism, solipsism, anarchism, and other heresies -- now revealed to corrupt your mind

"...unabashed rhetorical mudslinging on a high intellectual level..". -- Hakim Bey

"An appropriately savage attack on the 'natural law' doctrines of certain 'libertarian' pundits". -- The Egoist

"This is Wilson at his non-fiction best..". -- FreFanzine

A continuing episode in the critique of natural rights theories started by L.A. Rollins' The Myth of Natural lights, Wilson lets fly at Murray Rothbard, George Smith, Samuel Konkin and other purveyors of the "claim that some sort of meta-physical entity called a 'right' resides in a human being like a 'ghost' residing in a haunted house". An entertaining, informative and well-thought-out book that should be read by anyone who has ever been attracted to any ideology.
