This is a blog about politics. We suppose, theoretically, it would be possible for us to care less about sports or celebrities. But that would involve effort on our part.

Who are we?

In the bright of day we are an ordinary team, a Kiwi and an American. In the dead of night, we are Justice. We are the Night. We’re not Batman. But we still fight crime!

This is a blog specifically targeted at stories that suck away civil liberties around the world. We take liberty seriously, we take ourselves lightly.

“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights – that among these are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.”

Your liberty and pursuit of happiness are at stake. How long do you think it will be until lives are at stake, if they aren’t at stake already?



  1. Hello,

    I noticed that you don’t have a contact form, thus I will be leaving my message here. I have read some of your articles and I am thoroughly impressed.

    I am the owner of The Leather Library blog and senior editor for The Smoking Jacket Magazine. That being said I am always looking for thoughtful and creative individuals to contribute (as regularly, or infrequently as they like) to The Leather Library. The Leather Library is a website that discusses philosophy (especially philosophy of science), literature (especially Tolkien), global catastrophic risk, politics and all the finer things in life.

    I want to extend an offer to you to write for The Leather Library in any capacity that you are comfortable with, from an occasional contributor, an author and/or and editor! Should you accept you will not be bound to any particular set of guidelines or restrictions; I encourage The Leather Library’s contributors to run free with their imagination. This opportunity will also help to promote your own personal site and you will be given an official page on the ‘staff’ list with links to your site which will consequentially increase your sites SEO. Also every time you post on your own personal site, you can create a post on TLL which will drive its large audience to your site.

    Also, given your specialties, there is a particular portion of TLL that is called ‘The Alliance’, short for ‘The Alliance Against Mass Surveillance’ that I believe you would be suited to write for. This is a section dedicated to reporting on the laws and politics that are stripping people of the privacy and civil liberties.

    Please do not feel obliged to accept my offer should you feel uncomfortable.

    Yours truly,

    Steven – Owner/Executive Editor of The Leather Library Blog (http://theleatherlibraryblog.com/)


    1. Mr. Steven,

      Thank you very much. We are honored you enjoyed our blog.

      The main author of the blog (myself) wishes to accept your offer to contribute to The Leather Library, likely on a somewhat infrequent basis and as occasional editor. If acceptable to you, I would like to possibly repost some of my blogs on your site. If you only allow original content, that’s perfectly fine; however, it may mean the content is more infrequent.

      Thank you again for the offer and for visiting.

      Most sincerely,


      1. Both reposts and originally content are accepted. We here at TLL are happy to have you on board. Please visit the contact form here and send me the email associated with your blog so that I can invite you to be a contributor. http://theleatherlibraryblog.com/contact-the-leather-library/

        Once that is done please visit my personal page here: http://theleatherlibraryblog.com/the-team/steven-umbrello/

        You will have a similar page. Please follow the format and write your own biography. Please send it to me in a word document or in the main message of an email with a profile picture of your choice.

        Thank you for joining TLL


    2. Hi Steven,

      Due to time constrains I (the other half of this duo) have not had the chance to contribute posts to our blog. Whilst having helped with editing and formatting, I believe that this (grand) opportunity is not well-deserved (for me). And as such, I regrettably will pass on your offer for now. However if you are interested in the posts that do feature from me, I would be more than happy to hear from you at that time.

      I have no doubt that my partner (in crime) will be a great addition.

      Thank you for visiting – it really made our day. Hope you have a good one.
