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.

Death by Regulation – How the U.S. Government is Killing Americans

by | May 20, 2020

Any statute or administrative regulation necessarily makes actions
illegal that are not overt initiations of crimes or torts according to
libertarian theory. Every statute or administrative rule is therefore
illegitimate and itself invasive and a criminal interference with the
property rights of noncriminals.

Murray N. Rothbard – Economic Controversies, p. 406

“Death by Regulation” is the title of a great book by Mary J. Ruwart, can be found here:
