James Bovard
James Bovard, who serves as a policy advisor to The Future of Freedom Foundation, is a frequent contributor to Playboy, American Spectator, and Investor's Business Daily. He has also written for the Wall Street Journal, New York Times, Reader's Digest, New Republic, Washington Post, Washington Times, and Newsweek.
Mr. Bovard is the author of eight books:
The Bush Betrayal [2004]
Terrorism and Tyranny [2003]
Feeling Your Pain [2000]
Freedom in Chains [1999]
Shakedown [1995]
Lost Rights [1994]
The Fair Trade Fraud [1991]
The Farm Fiasco [1999]

Most of these books can be purchased at laissezfairebooks.com. and Amazon.com.
He was the 1995 co-recipient of the Thomas Szasz Award for Civil Liberties work, awarded by the Center for Independent Thought, and the recipient of the 1996 Freedom Fund Award from the Firearms Civil Rights Defense Fund of the National Rifle Association. His book Lost Rights received the Mencken Award as Book of the Year from the Free Press Association. His Terrorism and Tyranny won Laissez Faire Book's Lysander Spooner award for the Best Book on Liberty in 2003.
Since the Clinton administration took office, Mr. Bovard's writings have been publicly denounced by FBI Director Louis Freeh, HUD director Henry Cisneros, Commerce Secretary Ron Brown, Agriculture Secretary Dan Glickman, the White House AIDS czar, and the chiefs of the U.S. International Trade Commission, the Equal Opportunity Commission, the Drug Enforcement Administration, and the Federal Emergency Management Agency, as well as former IRS commissioner Shirley Peterson. The National Treasury Employees Union and the American Postal Workers Union have also added their condemnations.
A Wall Street Journal review of Freedom in Chains declared: "James Bovard has become the roving inspector general of the modern State... Never has so much theoretical error and concrete folly been collected and juxtaposed so well under a single cover.
Mr. Bovard consistently illuminates the connection between faulty political ideals and specific policy disasters." The Orlando Sentinel wrote: "James Bovard, the American government's most unfavorite journalist, has done all who value liberty a great service. He has meticulously documented freedom's demise in America and set it all in its proper philosophical framework. National Review declared: "Freedom in Chains... offers a principled and often eloquent vision of the minimalist state. There is an integrity to it, and it is always refreshing to find a man who takes his freedom straight." The Orange County Register labeled the book "a modern-day libertarian classic."
Mr. Bovard's 1994 book, Lost Rights, continues to stir controversy. The Wall Street Journal said of the book: "Remarkable... astonishingly broad... excellent... Mr. Bovard's unrivaled research has resulted in a virtual encyclopedia of modern government abuse."
Mr. Bovard has been a regular contributor to FFF's monthly journal, Freedom Daily, since 1996 and has delivered lectures at many FFF events.

Jim Lesczynski is a relatively well-known libertarian activist, whose controversial and politically incorrect bits of street theater have led to interviews and features on The Daily Show, News Night with Aaron Browne, Wolf Blitzer Reports, dozens of talk radio programs, and in newspapers around the world.
His new book has been referred to as the long awaited ‘Atlas Shrugged’ for kids. The future is going to need an educated generation and Jim’s effort is worth our attention. (FreedomsPhoenix book review by senior editor Powell Gammill)
