Death and Taxes? How About Life and Liberty? Join us as we build a better Institute.

On a shoestring budget since our founding in 2016, we have done our best to hold the line on libertarian principle while prioritizing the fight against the government’s worst depredations first. In 2017 we published our director Scott Horton’s acclaimed book Fool’s Errand: Time to End the War in Afghanistan. While the broader libertarian movement and our Libertarian Institute family lost...

Mind the Gap: A Strategy For Saying Libertarian Things

The Tenth Amendment Center's Michael Boldin calls it "the Horton rule." (It is my rule, but I didn't name it that.) It goes like this: Because libertarians are so dang good on everything -- better than the left on things the left is good on (e.g.: gays, drugs, cops, wars) and better than the right on the things they're...

The Rule of Law or CIA Coup?

It's pretty obvious. Americans should support the impeachment and removal of President Donald Trump, but not for Ukrainegate. In fact, they should oppose his impeachment on Ukrainegate grounds completely. Trump’s real offense is waging an un-authorized, unconstitutional, illegal, treasonous and for-real genocidal war against the human beings of Yemen. His war crimes in Afghanistan, Somalia, Libya, Syria and Iraq have at least taken place...

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...

The Great Ron Paul: The Scott Horton Show Interviews 2004–2019

The Libertarian Institute is proud to announce the publication of the brand-new book, The Great Ron Paul: The Scott Horton Show Interviews 2004–2019! It's the heroic Dr. Paul at his very best on war, peace, economics and individual liberty. We know you're going to love it.

Coming to Palestine by Sheldon Richman

The Libertarian Institute is proud to announce the publication of our latest book, Coming to Palestine, by our heroic executive editor, Sheldon Richman. In this incredible volume of essays, collected over 30 years, Sheldon Richman exposes the true history of Israeli dispossession of the Palestinians. Coming to Palestine turns the typical story most Americans have been told about Israel's founding...

Fighting the Last War

Reprinted from Antiwar.com. America is still fighting the last war. I admit to having a bit of the same problem. I’m now working on a new book to follow-up my previous one about the war in Afghanistan. The tentative title is Enough Already: Time to End the War on Terrorism. The biggest problem with writing this book now is...

Antiwar.com: Now What?

Reprinted from Antiwar.com. The question, “Now what?” seems appropriate today. First of all, R.I.P. Justin Raimondo. As Tom Woods said, Justin was the soul of this site. Despite popular misunderstanding, he was not the editor or webmaster (that’s me, Jason Ditz and Eric Garris, all of whom remain on the job for you here), but was very much the editorial director...

Mueller Report: It Was All a Bunch of Nothing

Update: so no strangers around here get the wrong idea: Trump should be in the Supermax with Barack Obama for genocide in Yemen. Neither I nor the Institute have any partisan favor for or even against him. Just the same bias against all presidents, especially in wartime. But truth matters, etc. ----------------------- The Mueller Report is here. The CIA and FBI swung...

FPF #254 – Close Call in the South China Sea

On FPF #254, I discuss a close call between US and Chinese Navy ships. The US ship was conducting a 'freedom of navigation' mission in waters claimed by China. The Chinese ship carried out maneuvers that brought it very close to the US ship. I review the history of the US and Chinese tensions over the region. I explain...
