COI #83 – Does Biden’s Afghan ‘Peace Plan’ Stand a Chance?

COI_Logo

On COI #83, Kyle and Will break down the Biden administration's new Afghan "peace plan," which sets out a series of lofty goals for ending fighting in the country and setting up a post-war government. But after two decades of failure in Afghanistan, it's unclear what the plan will accomplish beyond extending the American occupation. The Supreme Court has refused to hear a case that could have challenged the legal doctrine of qualified immunity, which places massive obstacles in front of anybody seeking accountability for abusive and murderous police officers. The case stemmed from a 2016...

This fund drive for the Institute is long overdue. You-all were so generous in the big book fund drive of Summer, 2019, that I couldn't bear to come back to you until the thing was finally done. And there was a severe delay caused by my over-doing it and having to start over. But now the book is done and the Institute is broke. So we turn to you, our faithful supporters to see us through. The legendary Sheldon Richman, the brilliant Kyle Anzalone and our great group of writers and podcasters make up this Institute and I'm proud to be associated with them. This is the future of the...

7/31/20 Sheldon Richman: What Social Animals Owe to Each Other

Scott interviews Sheldon Richman about his new book, What Social Animals Owe to Each Other, a collection of essays exploring libertarian political philosophy, particularly as it relates to ancient Greek philosophy and the roots of liberalism. Libertarians sometimes think too narrowly, says Richman, giving in to the stereotype of libertarians as rugged individualists who reject cooperation and community altogether. In reality, of course, libertarianism not only allows for these things, but also sees them as vitally important for the division of labor, free trade and the improvement of...

What Social Animals Owe to Each Other

Hooray! Announcing the publication of executive editor Sheldon Richman's new book, What Social Animals Owe to Each Other! These essays, written over the past 20 years, have a single underlying theme: namely, that we human beings, as social animals, need individual freedom to fully flourish. The equation is simple: individual freedom = social cooperation = individual and social flourishing. Many corollaries follow. To pick one, the freedom to choose with whom we will cooperate entails competition among those who wish to cooperate with any given individual. So the imagined conflict between...

1/31/20 Sheldon Richman on Trump’s New Apartheid Vision for Israel/Palestine

Sheldon Richman discusses President Trump's new "Vision to Improve the Lives of the Palestinian and Israeli People," which is really just an update of last year's "Deal of the Century." The plan presents itself as generous and fair, but really, says Richman, it simply codifies much of the settlement and annexation of Palestinian land that Israel has been engaged in for decades, and would create what in practice would be an apartheid state. Richman says this plan is, for the most part, probably a ploy to paint the Palestinians as unwilling to cooperate after they inevitably refuse. Indeed,...

The IRS or The Libertarian Institute?

Friends, We should be so lucky to somehow know that the government has only wasted all the money they've stolen from us over the years, rather than doing something horrible to someone with it. America's completely insane and criminal income taxation system has one good loophole going for it: you can deduct donations to not-for-profit 501(c3) charitable institutions like The Libertarian Institute from your yearly round of extortion by the IRS. The Institute is growing. We've got a great site with a great bunch of writers and podcast hosts. We've published four great books and are working...
