ANYTHING PEACEFUL

Radicals for Rules (Students for Liberty Austin)

DECEMBER 26, 2012 by MAX BORDERS

Most of us try to argue that libertarianism is the light and the way. But what if we were to argue instead that libertarianism is a structure that makes all sorts of other communities and political forms possible?

If you’re interested, check out this talk from the Students for Liberty regional conference in Austin, TX. In it, I argue that we can move beyond tug-of-war politics.

I know, I know. Forty-five minutes is a long time. But if you’re interested in a variation on libertarianism that not only reconciles competing systems but scraps political parties, you may want to watch.

Thanks to Jason Rink and the Foundation for a Free Society, you can follow along with the presentation:

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. Plus, Jeffrey Tucker identifies a strain in libertarianism that, left unchecked, could reduce even our vibrant movement to something that is analogous to the grim aesthetic of architectural brutalism. The struggle for our lives and freedom is a struggle for beauty; it begins inside each of us.
