Racist, or Libertarian; Pick One – Why Racial Prejudice is Not Compatible With Libertarianism

Racist or Libertarian 2
Why Racial Prejudice is Not Compatible With Libertarianism There is a frustrating trend among libertarians, to create criteria that exclude others from their own interpretation of the philosophy. One might claim it is impossible to be both pro-life and libertarian, or that someone who believes in borders is misunderstanding our platform. Thus, the phrase “you’re not a real libertarian!” has...

The Feldman Foundation Moneybomb

Friends, As many of you know, one of the main reasons I decided to run for Chairman of the Libertarian National Committee is because I feel the party needs to do a better job of identifying and supporting its candidates for political office. It is imperative that these candidates receive not only financial support, but that our party’s volunteers are...

Muh Constitution!

Gun rights are in the news again. Some kids who probably can’t even recite the Bill of Rights want to tell me how “a well regulated militia” means only the most consistently violent people in our society should have guns, and some people who probably spent the last few months making excuses why a clown in a cheap toupee...

The Problem with “Someone” Doing “Something”; A Libertarian Solution to the School Shooting Epidemic

Florida School Shooting Scene
“Someone should do something.” We hear it every time there’s a tragedy like the school shooting that occurred this past week in Florida, where at least 17 lives were taken at a high school by yet another kid with a gun. Everyone wants “someone” to do “something”. More often than not, that “something” is placing further restrictions on gun ownership,...

Legislation will not stop violence. The Parkland shooting took place in a “gun-free zone.”

The way that lawmakers, a lot of social media, and those in popular media have been responding to the recent Parkland shooting in Florida, should tell you quite a bit about what their intentions are. The hashtag #GunControlNow is trending, and it seems many are of the thought that the only way that we can honestly approach dealing with...

The Poverty Mindset

“If I have seen further, it is by standing on the shoulders of giants.” - Isaac Newton, 1675   As humans progress through time, we build off of the achievements of others.

lanzmann
You don't know what you don't know. You may think you know what happened in the holocaust, declare it a monstrous atrocity, and leave it at that.

Jay’s Execution

"And that was the moment something clicked in Jay’s mind. He could pinpoint the start of it all to that very moment, with the Senior Editor wiping perspiration from his wrinkled forehead before taking a shaky drink from his mug of coffee. From there, sitting in that stuffy office, Jay could map out everything, from one to the other, that now led down a musky hallway toward his death."
