The ALBERT J. NOCK FORUM and Southern California
Supper Club is another club that may be of interest to you,
run by the host of the H. L. Mencken Forum. Albert J. Nock
wrote essays (An Anarchist's Progress) and books about
government like Our Enemy, The State and Mr. Jefferson.
The Nock Forum has been in operation for over 10
years, hosting speakers on engineering, scientific, financial,
and political issues. Controversial figures, on and over the
cutting edge of toleration and civil liberties, have also
graced the forum, but nobody more outrageous than you'll see
on a given day's Geraldo, Oprah, Donahue, or Montel Williams
show. I DON'T remember a speaker having had a sex change from
male to female, then discovering she was a lesbian, but I was
in Northern California for a while and may have missed it.
Past speakers at Mencken and Nock include: Max More (Extropy),
LiberTech's Chuck Hammill, Wendy McElroy (Freedom, Feminism,
and the State), David Justin Ross (Calera), J. Neil Schulman
(author of Alongside Night and Rainbow Cadenza), Vic Koman
(Jehovah Contract), Robert Anton Wilson (Illuminatus!, Natural
Law), L. Neil Smith (Confederacy SF novels), Dr. Sharon Presley
(Libertarian Psychology - Obedience to Authority), Samuel
Edward Konkin III (New Libertarian, Agorist Institute),
Brock Meeks (Computer Privacy), Burt Rutan (Voyager, FreeWing),
Paul Macready (Gossamer Condor and Albatross) and many others
on topics like nanotechnology, public key crypto, artificial
intelligence, immortality, informal markets and other topics
that look like Tim May's tag line. BTW, Tim has a standing
invitation from the host to speak about "Crypto Anarchy" and
get a free dinner (He's gotta be in town and schedule ahead).
The latest speaker was Richard Grant, author
(Incredible Bread Machine, Trashing Nuclear Power, Rent
Control and the War against the Poor), on "Bring Us The Head
of Michael Milken."
Date/time/location of the next ALBERT J. NOCK Forum,

STEVEN W. MOSHER "The Future of 1/4 of the Human Race."
ACAPULCO at Cerritos Plaza 1800 West Whittier Blvd.,
La Habra, California, East of Beach Blvd.
