Strong Atheism: The Case for Evacuating the Middle Ground
In the world of philosophy, those who make the active claim that God does not exist are often viewed as extremists. Taking a positive stand about the nonexistence of God is considered akin to claiming that all forms of matter, energy and consciousness have already been discovered, and that there is nothing new to be […]

Universal Morality: A Proposition
Sometimes the greatest plans can be derailed by a single word. One of my earliest articles was entitled “Proving Libertarian Morality,” which was my attempt to provide a rational and universal justification for a theory of ethics, and which has proved thoroughly confusing for some people, all because of one single word. I wrote this […]

Turtles All The Way Down
According to an apocryphal story, a well-known scientist was describing to an audience how the Earth orbits the sun and how the sun, in turn, orbits the centre of a vast collection of stars called our galaxy. At the end of his lecture, a little old lady got up and said: “This is all nonsense. […]

Statist Dating
Statist DatingBy Stefan Molyneux So this afternoon, when my son comes home from school, he’s carrying a cat-cage. He throws his books on the kitchen table and flashes me a smile, heading to the fridge. “Hey son,” I ask, “Where’d you get the cat?” “Oh” he says, opening the fridge door, “it’s my date’s.” “Your […]

Worst. Meeting. Ever!
In my role as a business consultant, I am often asked to provide solutions to highly complex problems. Recently, a large, politically well-connected agricultural business paid me a fortune to provide them with a five-year plan on how to best allocate their assets, capital and human resources in order to maximize profitability. The complexity of […]

The Gun in the Room Part 2 (Part 1 below)
Compliance is not Freedom First of all, thanks to everyone who shared their thoughts with me about my last article – “The Gun in the Room.” In general, responses tended to fall into two rough categories: Great article! - and You’re insane! Naturally, I do not wish to take issue with the first assessment, so […]

The Gun in the Room
“Put down the gun, then we’ll talk.” One of the most difficult – and essential – challenges faced by libertarians is the constant need to point out “the gun in the room.” In political debates, it can be very hard to cut through the endless windy abstractions that are used to cover up the basic […]

A Personal History of Political Freedom
My journey towards personal, political and philosophical freedom has been a complete and total circle. When I first began to explore philosophy in my mid-teens, I started with the usual suspects – Ayn Rand, Aristotle, Plato and so on. I fully accepted all of the theoretical principles inherent in a rational and empirical approach to […]

Importing Freedom
Perspectives on the Question of Immigration - By Stefan Molyneux and Wilton D. Alston One of the truly “hot button” libertarian issues is immigration.

Respecting the "Sheeple"
Loving Non-Libertarians As If They Never Hurt You…One of the greatest challenges in the libertarian movement is reaching out to non-libertarians.
