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.

Hotter Than the Sun: Time to Abolish Nuclear Weapons (feat. Scott Horton)

by | Jul 1, 2022

… the use of nuclear or similar weapons, or the threat thereof, is a crime against humanity for which there can be no justification…it is precisely the characteristic of modern weapons that they cannot be used selectively, cannot be used in a libertarian manner. Therefore, their very existence must be condemned, and nuclear disarmament becomes a good to be pursued for its own sake. Indeed, of all the aspects of liberty, such disarmament becomes the highest political good that can be pursued in the modern world. For just as murder is a more heinous crime against another man than larceny so mass murder — indeed murder so widespread as to threaten human civilization and human survival itself — is the worst crime that any man could possibly commit…nuclear warfare is totally illegitimate…

– Dr. Murray N. Rothbard, Ethics of Liberty, p. 191
