Welcome to the Libertarian Institute!

Welcome to The Libertarian Institute!

The idea has been percolating around for a while, and now we’re ready. It is a unique moment. The time is ripe for this new project to advance peace and liberty.

Our goal is to unite the libertarian movement and more importantly to realign American politics around our agenda — prioritizing opposition to the worst of state power: the permanent war state, the prison and police states, and the corporate welfare, corrupt contracts, and bank bailouts that rig the economy for the wealthy and politically connected.

The Libertarian Institute’s mission is to stress these issues and work with other groups from across the political spectrum against these greatest of abuses.

I am proud to announce that Managing Editor Will Grigg and Executive Editor Sheldon Richman join me in this ambitious venture. Their heroic legacies of authorship and activism will surely inspire confidence and help solidify the Institute’s place in the libertarian movement and the broader political conversation.

We have begun inviting those who today best represent libertarianism in our country to write for our website and blog, and to collaborate on many projects. They come from many places and perspectives. This diversity will set the standard for our group and mission.

To help support our efforts please go to LibertarianInstitute.org/support. We accept Bitcoin.

For any contribution of $50 or more, we offer as premiums Sheldon Richman’s newest book, America’s Counter-Revolution: The Constitution Revisited, or the brand new collection of long-lost Murray N. Rothbard essays from 1967 and 1968, Never a Dull Moment: A Libertarian Looks at the Sixties.

For any donation of $100 or more you can get a one-ounce pure silver QR Coded Commodity Disk — which has a QR code instead of an engraved face value. Scan with your phone and it will tell you the instant spot price in real time. (Is that the best thing ever or what?)

Thank you for all your excitement and support! It really means a lot to us. Let’s see what we can do to convince Americans to care about freedom.
