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.

How Two Socialists Became Libertarians. Jo Ann Skousen & Keith Knight

by | May 24, 2022

The problem with political decisions isn’t that most of us don’t get our own way. It’s also that these decisions are usually imposed on us against our will, by threats of violence… Democracy, as we practice it, is unjust. We expose innocent people to high degrees of risk because we put their fate in the hands of ignorant, misinformed, irrational, biased, and sometimes immoral decision makers.

– Jason Brennan, Ph.D., Against Democracy (2016; New Jersey: Princeton University Press), pp. 240, 230.

Jo Ann Skousen is currently associate editor of Forecasts & Strategies, she co-authored of several investment books, and is associate producer of FreedomFest.
