"Before joining a tribe and throwing ideological titles around we ought to learn the pros and cons, history and meanings, and most importantly some actual depth to the things we claim to support."
While I don’t usually do this, I feel when talking about as divisive of a personality as Ben Shapiro that I need to clarify...
"The push to make cuts to the government is something I can fully support, but to do so before freeing up the market to take on what the government shouldn’t have been involved in in the first place is to put the cart before the horse."
"The reality of non-compliance is far from being anti-law enforcement; it can indeed be viewed as being anti-authority, as our Bill of Rights is very much geared towards restraining authority."
"The fact that so few people vote for Libertarian candidates is a very useful signal that party higher-ups should be paying attention to. This isn’t a case of citizens failing in their obligation to vote for the LP, it’s the LP failing in their ability to sufficiently attract voters."
"Free speech has been a central point around a number of topics, but can free speech be a murder weapon? Where is the line drawn between free speech and bullying?"
"Have you ever wondered why so many people have such bad political views? Why is it we all seem to have that extended family member who thinks they have the answer to every political question (despite dubious credentials)? More than almost any other topic, political opinions are prone to over-confidence."
"Backpage had its flaws, but it demonstrated potential for even better competitors to create tools for facilitating the world’s oldest profession like any other job; an entrepreneurial spirit to maintain safe workers and satisfied customers."
"The idea of economic freedom as is used by progressives is a bastardization of the term and one that attempts to conflate abilities and positive rights with negative ones."
"Appearing uninterested and struggling to even talk about climate change does not make our movement, and libertarianism as a whole, look good."
