Enemies of Freedom, a North Korea Tour, & More: Reason's 45th Anniversary Issue

Reason TV's Kennedy joined Reason's Matt Welch and Katherine Mangu-Ward to find out what's in the August/September 2013 issuea as they celebrate 45 years of publicizing "Free Minds and Free Markets." The August/September 2013 issue is on newsstands now (go here to subscribe for just $14.97 a year).

The cover story, "45 Enemies of Freedom," tallies up those who have made the world less 'groovy' since Reason was founded in 1968; enemy highlights include anti-vaccination vixen Jenny McCarthy and the nanny-state mayor himself, Michael Bloomberg. Michael Malice's piece, "My Week in North Korea," details his travels through the hermit kingdom and discovers the perpetual paralysis that keeps North Korea's fashion, technology, and mentality decades behind. And in "How Reggae Defeated Mambo,” Chris Kjorness charts the move of the Caribbean's culture capital from Cuba to Jamaica as the communist revolution stifled freedom of musicians to create.

A year's subscription to the print edition of Reason costs $14.97 (the discount grows with multi-year subscriptions). Subscribers get the mag weeks before any of the material shows up online.

About 5 minutes long. Filmed by Todd Krainin and Joshua Swain. Edited by Swain.

    Jenny McCarthy is an enemy of freedom?

    Please do explain.

    Apparently opposition to vaccines. I don't understand, though, how someone who wishes to prevent the government from forcing people to vaccinate their children according to a particular schedule is an "enemy" of freedom.

    Sometimes Libertarian "rationalism" gets the better of their "live and let live" instincts.

    Plus, Richard Nixon doesn't look good naked covered only by a protest sign.

    "I don't understand, though, how someone who wishes to prevent the government from forcing people to vaccinate their children according to a particular schedule is an "enemy" of freedom."

    Were you born this fucking stupid, or is it something you had to work at with a claw hammer?

    It's the claw hammer, plus the two decades of education. Amazing how public school and college can numb the brain.

    Was there something interesting or intelligent to your post that I missed somehow,or are you just being an a-hole?

    Does Reason celebrate every anniversary? Is it because every year the editors are shocked that they still haven't been shut down?

    Nice job on that, Mr. Malice (if that's *really* your name). "Kim" seems pretty cool.
