The Next Giuliani Moment: No War With China

giuliani moment china

In 2020, when Joe Biden was elected President the American people were told to rejoice, “America is back,” the adults had returned to the room. But did Biden voters know what the incoming administration meant by “America is back?” Biden has been incessantly stoking war with Russia, China, and Iran. During his first weeks in office, Biden flew a B-52 bomber over the Persian Gulf in an unmistakable message to Tehran, he sailed guided missile destroyers to the Black Sea, sailed a warship through the Strait of Taiwan, and deployed an air craft carrier strike group with several warplanes to...

Announcing the Institute’s New Managing Editor: Keith Knight

As we kick off our Spring funddrive, I figure now is a good time to announce the promotion of our great colleague Keith Knight to managing editor of the Libertarian Institute. Keith is a hardcore libertarian and is as devoted to spreading the message of freedom as any man I've ever known or known of. I've been very proud to have him associated with the Institute and will now be very glad to share a masthead with him too. Stay tuned. Keith's new book will be coming out soon! I have also added my good friends and associates Will Porter and Connor Freeman to the team. They are both hardcore...

Vaccines, Autonomy, and Mandates: A Libertarian Analysis

pexels nataliya vaitkevich 5863389

Prefatory Note Given the subject matter discussed below, I believe it prudent to state at the outset that I am not at all opposed to vaccinations themselves: indeed, I have received a COVID-19 vaccine, as well as all other normal-course vaccinations recommended for someone my age. Yet there are, it seems to me, interesting, difficult questions surrounding the state’s role in promoting or mandating vaccines. The goal here is to start a conversation not about the effectiveness of vaccines, but about the individual’s sphere of autonomy and what kinds of medical decisions are within it, and...

Pete Quiñones is Leaving the Institute

As some of you may have already learned, managing editor Pete Quiñones will be leaving the Institute on December 31st. Personally, I still love the guy and plan on remaining good friends. (And for the record, I do not blame him for the recent doxing of a couple of our fellow libertarians. He denied involvement to me and I believe him. So this is not due directly to that.) It's only that lately our paths are diverging and it's better for all involved if we go our own directions without the dissonance or contradictions involved in staying professionally connected in this way. We all wish...

Joe Norman On Why Localism Is Coming

We don’t need “the global village”; we need a “globe of villages”. And when I say need here I don’t mean it in an ethical, or moral, or aesthetic sense. I mean it in the most practical sense: in order to survive we must re-localize. The global village idea is a non-starter. It misses that complex adaptive systems of a certain class typically have a characteristic scale. That is, a certain size at which they necessarily are realized. Nearly every adult human being you will ever meet will be between five and seven feet tall. And you will not find a land mammal larger than an elephant....
