To End the Wars, Attack the Right From the Right

Sadly, the antiwar and anti-national security state inclinations of American liberals and progressives have weakened since the days of President George W. Bush. Partisan incentives during Barack Obama’s presidency combined with the FBI-CIA-Democratic Party-media plot to falsely accuse President Trump of high treason with the Russians, or at least terribly insufficient patriotism, for the last 3 years have done much to confuse liberals about...

Entrepreneurship in a Stateless Society

Given the State’s far-reaching involvement in various aspects of our lives today, it’s clear that the absence thereof would at least to some degree have led to an alteration of the social and economic arrangements presently characterizing our societies. Anarchists all agree that a stateless society would, generally speaking, turn out better than a Statist one, but they differ...

The Problem of Elizabeth Warren’s Wealth Tax Plan

Elizabeth Warren is among the strongest contenders and Democratic hopefuls for the presidential election of 2020. During the fourth Democratic debate, on October 15th, 2019, the economic policy of Elizabeth Warren, also known as the “Wealth Tax Plan,” was given close attention regarding how it could reduce income inequality in the United States.  The central argument about the wealth tax...

Russia Takes Over for US as Buffer Between Turkey, Syria

The US forces in northern Syria long served as a de facto buffer force, positioned in between Turkey and both the Syrian government and Syrian Kurds. With US forces withdrawing, Russia is taking over that role, moving into that space the US formerly filled. For Russia, it’s a bit more pro-active than what the US was doing. Russia describes its forces...

American Gun Ownership: The Positive Impacts of Law-Abiding Citizens Owning Firearms

Gun Ownership
It’s no secret that mainstream press coverage of gun ownership in the United States tends to be in favor of gun control – especially when those reporting on the topic are not firearm owners themselves. Journalists focus on how many people are killed by guns, how many children get their hands on improperly stored firearms, and how many deranged...

Empire of Islands: Geopolitics of the Philippines

Empire refers to a grouping of territories under one common authority. Although nowadays it’s more applicable than ever, the term has peculiarly disappeared from the political lexicon. The term connotes romantic images of Rome and Britain at their heights. As the Irish say, the sun never set on the British empire but that’s only because God couldn’t trust the...

Assessing Presidential Actions – From A Libertarian Perspective

It should be apparent to everyone by now that collectivist thinking is running wild and identity politics is en vogue. ​You’re supposed to hate Trump because one group says so, or you’re supposed to love Trump because another group says so. But to the libertarian individual, this means nothing. It really doesn't matter what type of thinking happens to be en vogue. To the...

The Ft. Worth Killer Cop Will Probably Get Away With It

Those who take police accountability seriously had reason to celebrate this month when Amber Guyger, the police officer who walked into 26-year-old Botham Jean’s apartment, mistook it for her own, and fired a fatal shot into him, was found guilty of murder and sentenced to 10-years in prison. Many saw it as a penetration of the “Thin Blue Line”...

Don’t Be Sorry, Jane Fonda

The American war on South East Asia, or more commonly known as the Vietnam War was at its bloody peak when Jane Fonda went to Hanoi.  Millions had died, and the promise of victory was ever elusive for the US government. The support for the war inside the United States had waned. The war had pained presidential administrations and...

Is the Non-Aggression Principle Axiomatic?

The Non-Aggression Principle is one of the most well known and core ideas to libertarianism.  It succinctly lays the groundwork for how libertarians believe people should interact with each other.  But is it always the answer for interaction?  Does it hold literally hold 100% of the time?  Or is it more of a guideline where extenuating circumstances require us...
