Trade liberty for safety or money and you'll end up with neither. Liberty, like a grain of salt, easily dissolves.
The power of questioning -- not simply believing -- has no friends. Yet liberty depends on it.

Note from the Editors:   Dear readers, contributors, and friends. We are sorry that we haven't been able to publish since July 28, 2014. Gilles has suffered three cerebral concussions that have left him impaired. He's lost most mobility. He cannot walk at all and moves on a chair. He's lost much ability with his two hands and has a difficult time to type on the keyboard. On top of this he has suffered some brain damage. Therefore, it is a condition that makes it impossible to maintain Swans until his health improves. We apologize for the inconvenience. We will try to put together an end of the year review, but we certainly cannot promise that it will happen. Same for our Infamous Predictions.

Steven Hohensee sent us a very generous financial contribution and we deeply thank him, but we will not cash the check until Swans is back to work.
