In the spirit of Ambrose Bierce's The Devil's Dictionary, this is the first collection of Rollins' biting definitions and aphorisms which have singed the pages of many libertarian periodicals. A sample of a few definitions are: Agriculture, n. The cultivation of legistlators to raise subsidies; pillage in the name of tillage. War On Drugs, n. A war to make the world safe for alcoholism. A deliciously satirical piece of work.
