2020: In Pursuit of Life (a Poem)

Wise men once asked what good a man gain the whole world but lose his own soul…Might he sacrifice all that he loves to attain some nebulous goal?For what tragic fool seeking LIFE would trade family, freedom, and song?Would seeking some ‘right,’ at all costs, engender more wrong? By this token, what purpose hath man […]

When is it Appropriate to Storm the Cathedral?

Recent events at the nation’s Capitol have left true Libertarians with a sense of curious ambivalence. On one hand, I see a bunch of children and fools, championed by a self-serving and pompous puppet-master, forcing their way into the Capitol building for the mere sake of maintaining the status quo. Their mission (supposedly?) was to […]

The Tale of Two Brothers

There once lived two brothers named Dante and Peter. They were orphaned fairly young where they lived, just outside a small remote village far, far away. Dante was the younger brother and had bright eyes; Peter, the elder, had a timid spirit but a warm heart. They were the best of friends and kindred spirits. […]

Wake up, LP. Grow a Backbone!

The Libertarian Party has become such a joke recently. I seriously pray that changes for 2024.

Turn on CNBC or any news channel and the stock market is surging; the economy is “bouncing back.” The Fed is raising rates because future economic outlook “is bright.” […]

Trump-Russia Timeline (by Brendan D)

I would here like to counter the “witch-hunt” narrative and attempt to present, in a more orderly and comprehensive fashion than ad hoc conversation would allow, the facts which should provide the basis for any conversation on this topic. I submit the following timeline. In it, I have tried to compile a good amount of […]

Government and the Environment: a Role to Play?

In response to the anarachist or anarcho-capitalist argument that the government must take no role in environmental protectionism or defense of nature–that the free market will do it for us. And to attempt so is amoral if/when no property rights are infringed upon. So fundamentally here is a logical concern I have with the “anarchist […]
