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:

If even destructive groups rely on this form of entrepreneurial organization, then hierarchy's time could truly be coming to an end.
