From the Director: Re: Fund Drive, Progress Report

The Libertarian Institute Textured Logo

To: Institute supporters, readers and listeners From: the Director: Here's a bit of an Institute progress report. We're in the middle of our Fund drive, which is going great. We've already raised more than $40,000 out of the $50,000 we're pushing for, and a generous donor has now offered matching funds which ought to put us over the top by the end of the week — with your help! We got one big one, but otherwise it has been hundreds and hundreds of donors making it happen. It's pretty cool to see. And we sure appreciate it. I have already signed and shipped hundreds of books to donors with...

Christopher Tapp Suing Idaho Falls Police Over Wrongful Murder Conviction

The cops, DAs and judges from Idaho Falls ought to all be caged like the criminals they are for the next 20 years to pay for what they did to this innocent man. Instead the same people responsible will be their own judges, will hand themselves immunity and then if anything will pay Tapp a pittance from the taxpayers rather than from any of the guilty. Read Will Grigg on the story of this innocent man's persecution...

12/13/19 Sheldon Richman on Trump’s Loyalty to Israel

Sheldon Richman discusses America's relationship to Israel in the wake of President Trump's speech to Sheldon Adelson's Israeli-American Council. Trump has received criticism as being anti-semitic for saying that American Jews, particularly democrats, do not "love Israel enough." This is odd, says Richman, since usually allegations of anti-semitism are based on people claiming that American Jews might have a special loyalty to Israel. He laments the fact that nobody cares about consistent principle anymore, happy instead to resort to sophistry and persecution if they think it will be...

Death and Taxes? How About Life and Liberty? Join us as we build a better Institute.

On a shoestring budget since our founding in 2016, we have done our best to hold the line on libertarian principle while prioritizing the fight against the government’s worst depredations first. In 2017 we published our director Scott Horton’s acclaimed book Fool’s Errand: Time to End the War in Afghanistan. While the broader libertarian movement and our Libertarian Institute family lost our hero Will Grigg in 2017, this year we proudly published a posthumous collection of his best articles of this century in No Quarter: The Ravings of William Norman Grigg. It’s a fitting legacy for a...

4/28/17 Sheldon Richman on The Libertarian Institute’s future and US policy on North Korea

Sheldon Richman, Executive Editor of The Libertarian Institute and author of many books, discusses The Libertarian Institute's future without co-founder William Norman Grigg, who recently passed away; the slate of new up-and-coming libertarian writers and the general expansion of the movement; the upcoming release of Grigg's book on the wrongful imprisonment of Christopher Tapp and Scott Horton's book on Afghanistan; and why North Korean leader Kim Jong-un is rightfully concerned about US-backed regime change against non-nuclear armed...

Will Grigg Was a Mighty Voice for Justice and Liberty

William Norman Grigg died this afternoon. He was a journalist, broadcaster, editor, musician, father, husband, and a self-described Christian Individualist. He was also my hero. Will’s main beat was stories about individual victims of the state: particularly Americans who have been unjustly imprisoned or wrongfully assaulted by government officers. His research for each article was exhaustive. From his home in Idaho, he traveled all around the northwest to get the story in person. He would get to know each subject personally, and seek face-to-face interviews with their powerful...

Chris Tapp case update: The Bastards of Bonneville County Have Won

Update re: The Last Full Measure of Malice: Bonneville County Seeks Plea Deal with Christopher Tapp "A deal has been reached in the Christopher Tapp case," reports today's Idaho Falls Post-Register. Appellate attorney John Thomas, who will discuss the details of the arrangement today with prosecutor Danny Clark and Judge Alan Stephens in anticipation of a hearing tomorrow, says that Tapp will not admit guilt as part of the deal -- which means, most likely, that the innocent man will take an Alford plea. This would mean immediate release from prison -- but not from the underlying...
