TGIF: The Antimilitarist Libertarian Heritage

by
With the United States on the verge of another war in the Middle East — or is it merely the continuation of a decades-long war? — we libertarians need to reacquaint ourselves with our intellectual heritage of peace, antimilitarism, and anti-imperialism. This rich heritage is too often overlooked and frequently not appreciated at all. That is tragic. Libertarianism, to ... [click for more]

Is the Foreign-Policy Elite Clueless?

by
The American foreign-policy elite seems to have no idea what it’s doing. Americans may believe the government — especially the foreign-policy side — is at least minimally competent, but when one surveys decisions from the last few decades, one has to wonder. The current crop of policymakers, like earlier ones, know what they want to do: make the world safe for ... [click for more]

The Miracle and Morality of the Market

by
One of the great fallacies arrogantly believed in by those in political power is the notion that they can know enough to manage and command the lives of everyone in society with better results than if people are left to live their own lives as they freely choose. The fact is, there is far more in the world that successfully ... [click for more]

TGIF: Ownership and Ideas

by
Like many libertarians, I’ve learned a lot from Murray Rothbard on a wide variety of subjects. Of course, no one gets everything right, especially someone as intellectually ambitious, multidisciplinary, and prolific as Rothbard. Nevertheless, reading the work of the man who left such a mark on the modern libertarian movement is as profitable as it is pleasurable. While rereading [click for more]

What the New York Times Neglected to Say about Marijuana Legalization

by
The editorial board of the New York Times recently called for the legalization of marijuana in a seven-part series titled “High Time: An Editorial Series on Marijuana Legalization.” Although the New York Times raised many good points in favor of marijuana legalization, the newspaper’s editors neglected to say something they should have about the subject. In its introduction, ... [click for more]

How Trade Wars Shaped Early America, Part 1

by
Part 1 | Part 2 Fair trade is once again a rallying cry for many Americans. Many contemporary leftists believe that the U.S. government should impose restrictions or tariffs on imported goods that are alleged to have been produced by underpaid or oppressed Third World workers. Few contemporary protectionists are aware of the sordid history ... [click for more]

Obama Follows Bush’s Iraq Playbook

by
U.S. politicians are exploiting the gruesome beheadings of two American journalists to whip up war fever against ISIS, the “criminal gang” masquerading as an organization of devout Sunni Muslims that controls large parts of Syria and Iraq. The American propaganda campaign seems to be working if recent polls are accurate. No decent person is anything ... [click for more]
