    Forbes ^ | 10/3/2022 | Derek Saul
    The world’s wealthiest man Elon Musk faced sharp backlash Monday afternoon after sharing his thoughts on how to end Russia’s invasion of Ukraine on terms far more amenable to Russia than the Western consensus, continuing to opine about global politics on the heels of bad corporate news closer to home. -snip- Musk’s controversial foreign policy proposal came as Tesla shares cratered 9% in Monday trading, hitting a three-month low as the market reacted poorly to third quarter vehicle deliveries falling short of estimates.

    Georgia Republican Senate nominee Herschel Walker and incumbent GOP Gov. Brian Kemp are both widening their leads over their Democratic opponents, according to a poll.Former NFL star Walker is ahead of incumbent Democrat Sen. Raphael Warnock by 47-44%, an InsiderAdvantage/FOX 5 Atlanta poll released Thursday shows.

Men support Walker at 60%, while women support...

    Even the staunchest libertarians deserve love. So throw away the pot you only smoke out of principle and take a shower, you son of liberty! You're going to need to put a little effort into a girl if you ever find one. Here are some pickup lines to add to your repertoire: "I don't believe in big government, but it should be illegal to look that good." — Classic. "Are you made of gold? Cause you're the standard by which women should be measured." — Awwwww yeah! "Hello, I am wearing deodorant." — This will set you apart from the...
  • Left Libertarian: A Tradition That Champions Equality and Social Justice

    Can libertarians be of the Left? Many would laugh at such a question. After all, libertarianism tends to be a fervently pro-free market ideology. But all ideologies have their shades of grey. With libertarianism being no exception to the trend. The left libertarian tradition is one that champions equality and social justice under the framework of a free-market economy. The leftist libertarian political economy stresses a separation of economy and state while championing mutual ownership of resources in a voluntary manner.

    Kraken, one of the world's largest cryptocurrency exchanges, will pay employees four months' worth of wages to leave if they disagree with its values, according to The New York Times. In a Wednesday report detailing internal cultural turmoil at the company, the publication cited interviews with Kraken employees who recounted "hurtful" comments around preferred pronouns and demeaning statements toward women, among other incendiary remarks, made by CEO Jesse Powell. The employees also said Powell held a companywide meeting on June 1 in which he unveiled the program, called "Jet Ski," designed to incentivize employees to leave if they don't believe...

    No political movement is a monolith. Political movements have their own sub-sects and factions within them. Libertarianism has been no exception to this rule. One variety of libertarianism that stands out is paleolibertarianism. The paleolibertarian strand of libertarianism fuses traditional cultural values and philosophical values with the standard libertarian antipathy of government intervention into private affairs.

    At its recently concluded national convention the Libertarian Party removed a long standing platform plank which condemned bigotry as irrational and repugnant. The national committee, which runs the national Libertarian Party in between conventions, is as its first order of business in the new term about to take up the following resolution: “Whereas, The Southern Poverty Law Center has strayed from its origins as a defender of civil rights and has defamed the now-current Chair of the Libertarian Party and several other prominent members in an attempt to slow the progress of freedom; now, therefore, be it Resolved, That Libertarian...
  • Libertarian Socialism: Does It Make Sense and How Does It Work?

    Libertas Bella ^ | 5/9/2022 | Jose Nino
    Are libertarianism and socialism diametrically opposed? The libertarian socialist would say no. The political philosophy of libertarian socialism categorically rejects state interference in social affairs and instead proposes the abolition of authoritarian institutions that inhibit freedom and justice. The rejection of state socialism and the current mixed economy define libertarian socialism. Instead, the libertarian socialism project calls for decentralized institutions that use direct democracy or voluntary associations to break up centralized institutions and institutions captured by rent-seeking capitalists.

    American ^ | February 27, 2022 | Jeremy Egerer
    The reason I'm not a libertarian is because I'd like to be free. The libertarian says he does, too, but is living proof that wanting something and getting it are two completely different matters — and his theory stands directly in the way of his practice. His first problem is his dislike of government, which he shares many times with other "conservatives." This means he's the least likely to actually go into it (and who wants to hire a man who doesn't believe in his job?), and since he forfeits the position, all kinds of important bureaucratic and so-called "oppressive"...

  • Exporting Toxic Wokeism

    01/14/2022 5:30:58 AM PST · by Kaslin · 3 replies ^ | January 14, 2022 | Ilana Mercer
    America has made a habit of exporting democracy at the point of the bayonet, be it by fomenting war or agitating for color-coded, plant-based revolutions, blessed and backed by the duopoly. While not as lethal, cultural trends and products exported can be toxic, too. They, moreover, displace and contaminate indigenous culture. To wit, Wokeism is made in America, is entirely toxic, and, sadly, suffers no supply-chain disruptions in its spread abroad. In case you’re not awake to it, woke is the current state-of-being in America. In particular, to be woke in America is to be anti-white and to be anti-white...

    You can rarely be sure that judicial incompetence will kill people, but Federal District Judge Terry Doughty crossed that line when he issued an injunction blocking the Biden administration's requirement that nursing home personnel be vaccinated for COVID-19.(The injunction, which the administration is appealing, has since been modified by a higher court to apply only in the 14 states that sued.) This week, Supreme Court Justice Neil Gorsuch produced something worse than incompetence. A recent study in the New England Journal of Medicine showed that nursing home patients are far more likely to die of COVID if there are many...

What follows is a spirited discussion of the role of the state in creating problems.
  • Gavin Newsom Says Recall Frontrunner Larry Elder Doesn't 'Believe in' Minimum Wage (And what's the bad part?)

    Newsweak ^ | 8/7/2021 | Aila Slisclo
    Democratic California Governor Gavin Newsom is doing his best to make sure voters are aware that Larry Elder, his chief Republican opponent in the recall election, "does not believe in a minimum wage." During a Friday press briefing in San Bernardino, Newsom slammed Elder, a veteran conservative talk radio host who has been at or near the top of recent polls as a Newsom replacement, for telling The Sacramento Bee on Tuesday that his "ideal" minimum wage would be "zero." Newsom did not name Elder but noted that he had been endorsed by former President Donald Trump's ex-adviser Rudy Giuliani...

    Menstrual America has gained the upper hand. Feminized America has been on display in all her undignified inauthenticity, in the crybabies of Congress and in the loud and proud quitting at the 2020 Olympics. In Menstrual America, medals go to congressmen and cops who wail the loudest when recounting their professional failings of Jan. 6, 2021. And props are given not to athletes who "bring it" despite the jitters; but to those who crumble and quit, and then crow about the authenticity of it all. Menstrual America's rich and famous belong to a fraternity of foolish, showy killjoys. They take...

Nothing can bring you peace but the triumph of principles.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson, Self-Reliance “Insist on yourself; never imitate.

All my other projects have been collaborations, usually with L. Neil Smith.

    As Connor Boyack recently discovered, there is no such thing as bad publicity. The creator of the popular Tuttle Twins children’s book series, which reinforces libertarian values and free-market principles, saw his book sales surge after an established progressive magazine wrote a lengthy feature article attacking the books.Current Affairs published the expletive-laden piece in its July/August print issue, calling libertarianism “one of the most disgraceful political tendencies in the world.”Apparently, not everyone agreed with the far-left writer, Rob Larson, that a political philosophy grounded in individual rights, personal responsibility, and consent is “disgraceful.” Soon after the article appeared online at...
