Lessons for Winning Liberty in a World of Statism
by Richard Ebeling
 sub-topic» General

What do friends of freedom have to learn from the successes of our socialist opponents? First, we must fully believe in the moral and practical superiority of freedom and the free market over all forms of collectivism. We must be neither embarrassed nor intimidated by the arguments of the collectivists, interventionists, and welfare statists. Once any compromise is made in the case for freedom, the opponents of liberty will have attained the high ground and will set the terms of the debate.

Love Liberty? Learn to Argue
by Abigail Hall
 sub-topic» General

This is important to remember when speaking with someone who doesn’t agree with you. Chances are, one talk won’t cause someone to change course completely. But one talk can do a great deal. One debate—a real one—can illustrate how markets better allocate resources than central planning. One debate can show how the minimum wage harms workers with the lowest skills. One debate can articulate the problems with drug prohibition. One debate can open the door to additional discussion.

Debates can change opinions and open up individuals to new ways of thinking. This should be our goal. In this way, we take small, but very real steps toward a freer society.

A Call to Action - Democracy at Stake
by Occupy London
 sub-topic» General

Our system of parliamentary democracy is unable to deal with the consequences of a social crisis it helped to create. We are facing record homelessness, while many more struggle to keep a roof over their heads, record numbers are relying on food banks to feed their families, and record numbers are facing fuel poverty as energy prices rise eight times faster than wages. Meanwhile inequality is reaching levels not seen since the nineteenth century.

Nobody voted for this.

It is becoming clear to millions in this country that our system of democracy increasingly functions in the interests of big business and a tiny wealthy elite.

It is for these reasons that the Occupy movement is calling for an Occupation of Parliament Square on Friday 17th October 2014 in order to demand fundamental change to Britain’s system of democracy.

India Property Rights Project Empowering Hundreds of Thousands of Farmers
by Ken Schoolland
 sub-topic» General

A property rights revolution is taking root in Gujarat, India, that is spreading across rural India, securing land title for hundreds of thousands of farmers. The evidence of success is so strong that this movement is expected to spread to 900 million plots of land in India and millions more across Asia, Africa, and Latin America.

11 Reasons to Draft-Dodge the Libertarian Guerilla Army
by George Donnelly
 sub-topic» General

When do we launch the armed resistance? That is the question bouncing around the libertarian/anarchist social media scene and blogosphere over the last few days. At what point do we stop risking arrest, stop pamphleting, stop speaking out, blogging, YouTubing and all that other stuff in favor of picking up arms and dropping cops and IRS agents by the dozens?

A Moral Spring
by Grant Mincy
 sub-topic» General

As this “Moral Spring” draws to a close here in North Carolina, I hope the citizens here realize they will always be at odds with the state, even with their prefered “state servants” in power. Indeed only in opposition to rule will our households, communities and Earth be healthy. Only without rule will we truly be liberated.

Restore the Fourth to hold protests on July 4th for Fourth Amendment rights
by Restore the Fourth
 sub-topic» General

The July 4th demonstrations seek to demand an end to the unconstitutional surveillance methods employed by the U.S. government and to ensure that all future government surveillance is constitutional, limited, and clearly defined.

Restore the Fourth aims to ensure that the will of the people is reflected in the government of the United States of America. This movement intends to bring an end to twelve years of Fourth Amendment abuses, and demonstrate the need for a return to the Constitution. All Americans should stand with them in this cause to protect the Fourth Amendment of the United States Constitution.

10 Tips to Make Sure Your Activist Group Isn't Set Up by the Feds
by Jason Charles

Here are 10 good tips to avoid the embarrassment of your group ending up in the headlines as another excuse to further the police state agenda. No matter if you’re a 9/11 group, anti-GMO, anti-war, Christian, Muslim or whatever the cause may be. If you run a group these tips are for you

The Calling: I Have Seen the Future of Freedom
by Steven Horwitz
 sub-topic» General

This past weekend in Washington, D.C., I attended my first International Students for Liberty Conference. I gave a number of talks and went to several other sessions. There were about 1,200 young libertarians in attendance, and as a group, they were absolutely outstanding. They are well-read, engaged, articulate, organized, and passionate. They are thinking, not just about the ideas of freedom themselves, but also about how best to forward them to other students and to the public at large.

Zombie Occupy Vs. The Vampire State
by Trevor Hultner
 sub-topic» General

In the past two weeks, Occupy Sandy has set up distribution sites at a pair of Brooklyn churches where hundreds of New Yorkers muster daily to cook hot meals for the afflicted and to sort through a medieval marketplace of donated blankets, clothes and food. There is an Occupy motor pool of borrowed cars and pickup trucks that ferries volunteers to ravaged areas. An Occupy weatherman sits at his computer and issues regular forecasts. Occupy construction teams and medical committees have been formed.

The New Putney Debates
28th October - 11th November
by Occupy London
 sub-topic» General

365 years ago the original Putney debates discussed the need for greater democracy and a new constitution for England. Today these issues are even more relevant, with decisions that affect us all being taken by a few, decisions on economic policy, energy, climate change, welfare and education for example.

The Concupiscence of Hierarchy
by Kevin Carson
 sub-topic» General

We can go even further than that, though. I’ve previously quoted Gupta’s arguments that the capitalist security state cannot afford to be honest with itself — to operate in the full knowledge of what its real goals are — because the true nature of those goals is too abhorrent. As a result, most subordinates within the state repression apparatus operate with the protective blinders of cognitive dissonance, relying on official doctrines about promoting “peace and freedom” around the world to conceal the truth of enforcing global corporate rule through drone assassinations, repressive states and death squads.

By stripping away this protective cover, and confronting lower-level state functionaries with the real nature of the system of power they serve, we can undermine the security state’s morale and cohesion.
