FFF/YAL Civil Liberties College Tour: War on Terrorism, Civil Liberties, and the Constitution (videos)

In the second week of February 2012, the Future of Freedom Foundation and Young Americans for Liberty cosponsored a panel entitled "The War on Terrorism, the Constitution, and Civil Liberties" that included Bruce Fein, Glenn Greenwald, and FFF president Jacob G. Hornberger. The panel visited Columbia University in New York, Indiana University/Purdue University in Indianapolis, Middle Tennessee State University ... [click for more]

No One Should Be Forced to Act against His Conscience

A question arises from the recent controversy between President Obama and the Catholic Church that aches for an answer: If Catholic institutions have a right to abstain from paying for what morally offends them, why don’t the rest of us? The initial Obamacare rule held that all employers, in fulfilling their new legal requirement to provide health insurance to their ... [click for more]

In Defense of Censorship

I was intrigued by the headline I saw in an evangelical magazine: “Google, iTunes, Facebook All Censor Christian Views.” The article turned out to be about the recent release at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C., of a report by the National Religious Broadcasters (NRB) on censorship by “new media” communications platforms. The report is called True Liberty in a ... [click for more]

The Missing Peace Dividend

I recall watching the TV news the evening that Germans were taking sledgehammers to the Berlin Wall. They were smashing it into little souvenirs, reminders of a world split in two for decades. I allowed myself to feel happy for a people who had never known any type of freedom, anything of life that was not under authoritarian rule. ... [click for more]

The Catholic Bishops and the Morality of Government Mandates

The Catholic bishops are absolutely correct in their criticism of the Obama administration’s decision to require all employers, including all religious institutions, to provide health insurance that makes contraceptives, sterilizations, and abortion-inducing drugs available to their employees. The mandate is both unconstitutional and morally objectionable. The Obama administration appears to be making the political calculation that the controversy will subside ... [click for more]

Bushs Torture Program Began Ten Years Ago

Last month was the 10th anniversary of the opening of the “war on terror” prison at Guantánamo, and as this year progresses it is appropriate to remember that there will be other grim 10-year anniversaries to note. This week, one of those 10-year anniversaries passed almost unnoticed. On February 7, 2002, as Andrew Cohen noted in the Atlantic, in the ... [click for more]

War with Iran Would Be Madness

Barack Obama’s refusal to rule out military action against Iran, and several Republican presidential candidates’ pledge to launch a war if elected, should appall anyone who believes, with the free-market liberal Ludwig von Mises, that “not war, but peace, is the father of all things.” If the U.S. government or Israel were to attack Iran, all hell would break loose. ...

TSA — Tenth Anniversary of a National Nightmare

Less than a month after the 9/11 attacks, George W. Bush promised Americans, “We will not surrender our freedom to travel.” In hindsight, he may have been referring to himself and other high-ranking government officials. Because for all other Americans, airline travel has become more arduous and more perilous in the past ten years. The Bush administration and Congress responded ... [click for more]

Consolidate or Eliminate?

In his 2011 state of the union address, Barack Obama promised to create a leaner, more efficient federal bureaucracy. In his recent 2012 address, the president reiterated his grandiose plan to reorganize the federal government: In the coming months, my administration will develop a proposal to merge, consolidate, and reorganize the federal government in a way that best serves the ...
