IN BRIEF

Regulation Freeze Has Fateful Typo

JULY 26, 2012

“A Republican-backed bill in the House is designed to freeze major government regulations until the unemployment rate reaches 6 percent or below. But the bill debated on Wednesday says the freeze should stay on until the employment rate equals 6 percent or less. That means there would be a freeze until the unemployment rate reached 94 percent.” (New York Times)

There are no accidents.

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.
