How Zoning Laws Squash Alternative Lifestyles

tiny house, zoning laws
You’ve probably heard of the “tiny house” movement.  For freedom-loving people, the movement is admirable:  People are choosing to forego the tradition of spending a huge fraction of their income to own and maintain a full-sized home, instead opting for a tiny house of about one to four hundred square feet, plenty for the basic essentials of living.  This...

Keynesian Economics Are Doomed To Fail

Keynes keynesian
Our country was initially founded on the principles of limited government, individual rights, and personal responsibility. These principles, obviously, were meant to give more economic freedom to the individual to undertake, create, stimulate and innovate.

Robinson Crusoe Economics

Robinson Crusoe
When we first start reading into libertarian philosophy, we see examples of how things currently are, and the benefits, both practically and morally, that come from removing levels of state interference. We see arguments for the reinforcement of our rights, and clearer definitions of what rights we do and do not have. One of the most influential and reused...

Instagram & Mental Health: Exposing Pink Capitalism

I’d like to start this article off by saying this: as the vast majority of people that come here to get information, I fully respect the right for private companies to do pretty much whatever they want with their companies.

A question frequently asked in libertarian circles is "what is the best way to advance liberty?"  Some claim that the Libertarian Party is the best vehicle for spreading libertarian ideas.

Steel Economics: You Don’t Want Everything Made In The USA

steel
I continue to see a lot of people all over the internet say that we need to "bring these jobs back from China, and build everything here in America", or closely similar to that. But none of us should really want that. I'll use steel as an example to show why. In China, a steelworker's wages are roughly $3.60 (US)...
