Sunday Best - Feb 22nd 2009

1) All-time best: Libertarian Anarchism: Responses to Ten Objections by Roderick T. Long
A classic of libertarian theory by one of its most famous academic proponents, Dr. Roderick T. Long.

2) Best news-related: Battling the Threat of Famine with One Hand Tied -- Thanks Again Greenpeace and FOE by Ronald Bailey
While crops worldwide are being infected with a dangerous rust, adaption to this new situation becomes increasingly difficult due to the political minefield of genetic engineering. Demonizing technology will hardly improve global living standards - and it's a play with fire (or, more appropriately, "a pending disaster in global agriculture") in this particular case.

3) Best debate: Most Libertarian Country on the Mises Institute boards
A discussion on the freest place on earth that turned into an argument over secular statism. Quite thought-provoking.
