Liberty Forum FTW!!

Issue #30 – Thursday, March 12, 2015 By Sandy Pierre I’ve attended all of the Free State Project’s eight New Hampshire Liberty Forums (yes, I know that technically the plural of “forum” is “fora”; I’m using the vernacular intentionally, deal with it). I helped to organize the first one, and put together the printed program […]

3 Communication Lessons For Libertarians

Issue #29 – Thursday, Feb. 26, 2015 By Lauren Rumpler One thing I have been studying in the past 3 months is communication. People often feel that when they win, they need to point it out or the other person and even the audience don’t notice. And trust me, they notice. The only thing that […]


Issue #28 – Thursday, Feb. 19, 2015 By Richard Masta The northeast has been enjoying a wicked storm today. I woke up at 3:30 AM for work and drove through a foot of powder to my job. Visibility was zero. We were sent home early.  I stepped back into the storm at 9:50 AM. The […]

Evolving Beyond Retribution

Issue #27 – Thursday, Feb. 5, 2015 By Dale Everett An open letter to activists espousing violence as a form of activism against statism. A shepherd had a nice flock of sheep but he was endlessly frustrated because his neighbor had more sheep than him. One day he had just birthed a new lamb only […]

Are You An Activist?

Issue #26 – Thursday, Jan. 29, 2015 By Sandy Pierre I have long considered myself to be a liberty activist.  And as someone who lives in New Hampshire and interacts with other Free State Project early movers on a regular basis, many of the people in my social circle consider themselves to be activists as […]

Do We Need Police?

Issue #25 – Thursday, Jan. 15, 2015 By Scott McPherson Last month police killed another unarmed man, this time in Phoenix. Rumain Brisbon was shot twice in the chest for selling drugs. That’s not the official version. The officers said they “mistook” a pill bottle he was carrying for a gun. Of course. And Eric […]

A Little Less Douche

Issue #24 – Thursday, Jan. 1, 2015 By Dale Everett I realize the derogatory label of “douche” seems a rather vague term. In fact, this video by Daly Show TV seems to play upon its obscurity as an insult and deserves credit for inspiring the title of this article. I found myself using it lately […]

The Problem of Evil

Issue #23 – Thursday, Dec. 4, 2014 By Mike Ruff I’m going to attempt to distill “the Problem of Evil” down for folks who don’t have the time or inclination to run all over the place reading Leibniz and Kant and Hume and Epicurus et al. It’s a big part of the story in The […]

Citizen, Arm Thyself

Issue #22 – Thursday, Oct. 30, 2014 By Scott McPherson Had we a standing army, when the British invaded our peaceful shores? Was it a standing army that gained the battles of Lexington, and Bunker’s Hill, and took the ill fated Burgoyne? Is not a well-regulated militia sufficient for every purpose of internal defence? And […]

The Issue of Copyright

Issue #21 – Thursday, Oct. 23, 2014 By Curt Howland We, as in society in general, are going to have to deal with copyright.
