    It’s noteworthy that five of the most libertarian films ever made were produced by Britain’s Ealing Studios in the brief period, 1949-1957. These were among the much-praised “Ealing Comedies” that have become a classic genre in their own right.
  • Does Joe Biden owe his win to (Libertarian candidate) Jo Jorgensen?

    12/03/2020 5:37:26 PM PST · by Behind Liberal Lines · 58 replies
    In this historic 2020 presidential election, there is a strong case for former Vice President Joe Biden to attribute his victory to Jo Jorgensen, a professor of psychology at Clemson University and the presidential nominee of the Libertarian Party. Her vote total substantially exceeded Biden and President Trump's margin in Arizona, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, and Georgia. Libertarian Party candidates typically draw far more votes from conservative Republicans than liberal Democrats. And this year, especially, the major planks on her campaign web site were far more likely to win votes that otherwise would have gone to Trump rather than Biden. Consider Arizona....

    FATE, TX—Local libertarian man Gabriel Parton read yet another headline today about how the 2020 election was illegitimate. While Republicans nodded solemnly at the headline and Democrats screamed in rage, Parton reacted the way he does to everything: he just smiled smugly. "Actually," he said as a friend told him that the 2020 election was illegitimate, "all elections are illegitimate. Every election is simply the majority imposing their will on the minority through the threat of force, and as such is a violation of the non-aggression principle. I never consented to this election, and I am now being detained under...

    Science fiction, since the golden age of the short story magazines like Astounding and Analog has always had a libertarian streak. For a genre all about individuals using technology and reason to survive and thrive in an often hostile universe it’s hard not to come across as fundamentally libertarian (as much as the pinko writers over at TOR try…). libertarian science fiction stories But with so much sci-fi out there that could be libertarian, what’s actually worth reading and what should you avoid as if it were an unshaven leftist on the sidewalk who’s trying to collect signatures for her...

    The Libertarian vs. Liberal debate is confusing for some, but once you understand it, it’s clear as day. While both of these political thought processes have some areas that overlap, you’ll soon understand the fundamental differences between the history, modernization, and 20th century belief systems behind them.

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.

    @PeterSchiffPres. @realDonaldTrump got off easy with 60 Minutes. It's nothing compared to what 60 Minutes Australia did to me. I only wish I had my own recording to show the interview that actually took place, rather than the one they pretended took place. My Youtube response is later today. ----------------------------------------------- A lesson learned, perhaps? Apparently Schiff walked out on them when they accused him of money laundering etc. This is what it's based on.. Article from the NYT (19th Oct). Likely a hit job (i've not read it all yet).

    “The Mystery of Fascism” borrows its title from one of David Ramsay Steele’s most famous essays, though there are two dozen more essays in this collection. That’s why the subtitle is “Dave Ramsay Steele’s Greatest Hits”. This book is a stand-alone work that draws from three decades of Ramsay Steele's writing. But what topics does it address?

    Summit News ^ | 08/05/2020 | Paul Joseph Watson
    Libertarian Party presidential nominee Jo Jorgensen praised a company for firing an employee who had posted “all lives matter” on her private Facebook page as an example of the free market standing up against “systemic racism.” Yes, really. During a C-SPAN interview, Jorgensen argued that Rosa Parks was discriminated against because, “what a lot of people don’t realize is that that was a government-owned, government-run bus, and the only way that racism was able to go on for so long was the government was putting it into place.” She then claimed that it’s harder for private companies to engage in...

    Washington Examiner ^ | July 14 | by Anthony Leonardi,
    Sen. Ted Cruz said the future of conservatism after President Trump leaves office can be both populist and libertarian. The Texas Republican weighed on ideological debates among conservatives, saying the future of conservative politics can be a combination of libertarian beliefs and populism during a Tuesday interview with the Washington Examiner about his podcast, The Verdict, co-hosted by conservative commentator Michael Knowles. "I think properly understood, those concepts are complementary, and they're not antagonistic. So I am a conservative, an unabashed conservative. I'm also a populist. I am deeply a populist," Cruz began. "And I also have deep libertarian principles....

    Cato at Liberty ^ | July 14, 2015 | David Boaz
    Compared to the American Revolution, the French Revolution is very disappointing to libertarians. Compared to the Russian Revolution, it looks pretty good. And it also looks good, at least in the long view, compared to the ancien regime that preceded it. Conservatives typically follow Edmund Burke’s critical view in his Reflections on the Revolution in France. They may even quote John Adams: “Helvetius and Rousseau preached to the French nation liberty, till they made them the most mechanical slaves; equality, till they destroyed all equity; humanity, till they became weasels and African panthers; and fraternity, till they cut one another’s...

Make the decision that benefits the most people and not some 'lesser evil,'” the Clemson University professor tweeted on Monday, two days after she was nominated by the Libertarian Party as their presidential standard-bearer in November’s general election.

    Prof. David Collum ’77, chemistry, has come under fire from both students and administrators for a series of Thursday night tweets defending police officers that pushed and severely injured an elderly man. In a graphic film that has since become viral, a 75-year-old white man could be seen lightly brushing up against Buffalo police — who donned heavy tactical gear — as he approaches them. In response, two of the cops shoved the man, causing him to fall and hit his head. As the man lays bleeding and unresponsive, over a dozen officers appear to simply walk away, failing to...
