NOVEMBER 14, 2012 by SANDY IKEDA

Dr. Sandy Ikeda explains why he thinks "Don't Tread on Others" is the heart of libertarianism, not "Don't Tread on Me."

CURRENT ISSUE

April 2014

Around the world, people are struggling to throw off authoritarianism, with deeply mixed results. From Egypt to Venezuela, determined people build networks to overthrow their regimes, but as yet we have not learned to live without Leviathan. In this issue, Michael Malice and Gary Dudney discuss their glimpses inside totalitarian regimes, while Sarah Skwire and Michael Nolan look at how totalitarian regimes grind down the individual--and how individuals fight back.

The struggle for our lives and freedom is a struggle for beauty; it begins inside each of us.
