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.

Understanding Foreign and Domestic Socialist Propaganda

…[W]e human beings, as social animals, need individual freedom to fully flourish. The equation is simple: individual freedom = social cooperation = individual and social flourishing. Many corollaries follow. To pick one, the freedom to choose with whom we will cooperate entails competition among those who wish to cooperate with any given individual.

The Myth of “Black Essentialism” (feat. Erec Smith, Ph.D.)

Intellectuals have been particularly prominent among those who have turned the black redneck culture into a sacrosanct symbol of racial identity.

– Thomas Sowell, Black Rednecks and White Liberals (p. 52)

The World Needs a Separation of Economy and State! (feat. Mark Pellegrino)

When I say “capitalism,” I mean a full, pure, uncontrolled, unregulated laissez-faire capitalism—with a separation of state and economics, in the same way and for the same reasons as the separation of state and church.

– Ayn Rand, Objectivism A to Z

Mark Pellegrino is the co-founder of The American Capitalist Party.


The Truth About the U.S. Government’s Drone War

[W]ar is simply a euphemism for theft-funded mass murder, a blatant crime that we would never dismiss if non-government actors were to engage in it.
