Stand with The Libertarian Institute

The Empire has us on the brink of nuclear Armageddon. The central bank has us flirting with economic-social collapse. Americans are increasingly paranoid of one another and simultaneously invested in wielding the state against one another.

The voices of the establishment are legion. The voices of dissent are few. Make your stand for liberty by supporting The Libertarian Institute today.

Masks and Me: How Did We Get Here?

Masks and Me: How Did We Get Here?

“The spirit of the times may alter, will alter. Our rulers will become corrupt, our people careless. A single zealot may become persecutor, and better men be his victims. It can never be too often repeated that the time for fixing every essential right, on a legal basis, is while our rulers are honest, ourselves united. From the conclusion of this war we shall be going downhill. It will not then be necessary to resort every moment to the people for support. They will be forgotten, therefore, and their rights disregarded. They will forget themselves in the sole faculty of making money, and...

Did We Actually Flatten the Curve?

Did We Actually Flatten the Curve?

"The most brilliant propagandist technique will yield no success unless one fundamental principle is borne in mind constantly...it must confine itself to a few points and repeat them over and over."- Adolf Hitler (Mein Kempf, Chapter 6: War Propaganda) From the start of the COVID-19 panic, we have been met with admonitions from roadside signs, from well-meaning friends, from talking heads on TV, and from trending hashtags on social media. These pleas have generally had the same form, albeit using different words. Some of them said, “Stay Home and Save a Life.” Some of them were more...

Do Lockdowns Save Lives?

Appearances are of four (4) kinds: Things are as they appear to be; Things neither are nor appear to be; Things are, but do not appear to be; Things are not, but yet appear to be.      ~ Epictetus, Phrygian Philosopher Despite what seems to me incontrovertible data that lockdowns not only did not help, but also were destructive, people on social media are still trotting out the “How many people do you want to kill?” false choice. (To my credit, this author has yet to block anyone for asking such a question. Baby steps!) The thing that troubles me, and in full disclosure this insight only...

What Did Society Benefit By Social Distancing?

"To be governed is to be watched, inspected, spied upon, directed, law-driven, numbered, regulated, enrolled, indoctrinated, preached at, controlled, checked, estimated, valued, censured, commanded, by creatures who have neither the right nor the wisdom nor the virtue to do so."- Pierre-Joseph Proudhon Despite the fact that there has already been ample writing, both in the mainstream and in alternative press, on this subject from authors who are both persuasive and amply qualified mathematically and scientifically, this author finds himself wanting to offer a brief entry. As someone who has...

Why Didn’t This Election Scare Me?

"A Drunk Man's Mouth Speaks With a Sober Man's Heart." As the presidential race played out, there was a recurring hue and cry that, "This time it's different!" Pundits all over the mainscream media proclaimed it. Psychologists tried to explain it. My brother even texted me about my plans to seek safety, buy ammo, make sandwiches, or otherwise get ready for when all hell broke loose after the election. I openly admit that at various points, I too thought, "Are these two arrogant megalomaniacs are all that's left?" (By the way, is it just me, or does the American political process better...
