Column on Besmirching Libertarianism by Professor Tibor R. Machan

Now that libertarianism has gotten some publicity in mainstream forums, those who are convinced of its merit have much work to do. This is because of the well publicized distortions of the position in prominent forums, especially by well credentialed academics in law, political economy, ethics, philosophy, and other disciplines bearing a public policy. You see, the idea that no one ought to coerce another even for noble purposes is pretty much common sense in America. Sure, some folks disagree, among them many highfalutin academics with great skills at sophistry.

LP Monday Message: Lights of Liberty Awards

February 7, 2011

Dear Friend of Liberty,

Thanks to the generous support of our contributors, we raised around $2,000 last week when we asked for help to buy a teleprompter. We'll be ordering an affordable model shortly, along with lighting, a podium, and a few other things needed to help us generate good-quality videos. We really appreciate the financial support for this effort.

War for Terror by John Jay Myers

Wars are not about ideals.  Wars are about things, things people want.  Telling people that wars are about religion or ideals is what is known as propaganda.  No one wants to be the guy who is fighting over a “thing” because that makes you appear greedy.

How much is your liberty worth?

The Libertarian Party of Georgia's Executive Director, Brett Bittner, wrote an excellent piece and with his permission I am reposting it here on LP.org.

Recently, I came across an interesting piece on Seth Godin's blog about the fear of giving.
