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. While most libertarians would reject the argument “we must have taxation to pay for the welfare state,” many do support the position that “we must control immigration because of the welfare […]

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. Some people within the libertarian movement – due to frustration no doubt – have developed a rather scornful attitude towards non-libertarians.

The Grave Danger of Self Defense
I get scads of emails about two positions I hold. The principle of self-defense is relatively unimportant, and You live a peaceful life, so you are proof that a stateless society can work. A communicator must always take responsibility for misunderstandings, so, as a clarification, here is a more detailed description of what I mean. […]

Murdering the Group; Saving the Individuals
Once more, bombs rain down in the Middle East, Arabs and Jews hurl fire and murder children, the world turns pale with horror and empty words pour from televised heads – and as usual, the obvious and effective solution can never be discussed! It’s the same with immigration, the national debt, welfare, the war on […]

Despot Cagematch: George III vs George III
If the Declaration of Independence were written today… In June of 1776, when Jefferson penned the Declaration of Independence, he took great pains to detail the abuses heaped upon the Colonists by George III, then King of England.

So one morning your daughter comes to you and says that she is engaged to Bobby, a boy she has been dating. “That’s great,” you say, giving her a hug, “but you have to marry Dave instead.” She wriggles out of your embrace. “Excuse me?” “You can’t marry Bobby, pumpkin. You have to marry Dave.” […]
