Perspective

Today’s Totalitarianism

APRIL 01, 2014 by THE FREEMAN

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.

Abundance Down There, and Back Up

DECEMBER 06, 2013 by THE FREEMAN

While a number of thinkers and economists have been lamenting The Great Stagnation, a quiet revolution is developing. And much of it is happening "down there"--in areas invisible to the naked eye.

Healthcare Whodunit

DECEMBER 02, 2013 by THE FREEMAN

Obamacare hasn't gotten off to a good start. At least it's not the only story in reforming American healthcare.

On Being a Catalyst

NOVEMBER 01, 2013 by MAX BORDERS

Working for liberty sometimes means inspiring, pushing, and encouraging others to think about the world in new ways. It means catalyzing the process of innovation by channeling your enthusiasm and recombining ideas you know in your gut to be right.

Take This Job

Work is the engine of the economy and the path to fulfillment

OCTOBER 01, 2013 by THE FREEMAN

Work isn't always pleasant, but it's the true engine of the economy, and it's gotten less dangerous and back-breaking even as it's become better paid. Free from the interference of the sanctimonious political types, it can be a path to fulfillment, whether on the job site or during increasing off hours, when we can, yes, work on what we truly love.

Hacking Leviathan

SEPTEMBER 03, 2013 by THE FREEMAN

The same system that saddled us with Leviathan is unlikely to liberate us from it any time soon. We have to come up with workarounds on our own. Hacking Leviathan--that is, coming up with clever, peaceful, voluntary ways around the State's roadblocks--constricts the State's predations in actual fact while the Beltway types bloviate and cut back-room deals.

The Great Power Auction

JULY 03, 2013 by THE FREEMAN

It's time for State power to be broken up and decentralized. It's going to take a lot of innovation to do it.

Freedom and Flow

APRIL 24, 2013 by THE FREEMAN

Appreciating the idea of flow unlocks a greater understanding of ourselves. We might also discover that, as we seek and strive, we play a role within evolving systems that gives our lives a meaningful connection to something larger than ourselves.

The Beautiful Possibility

MARCH 27, 2013 by THE FREEMAN

A world without the State--without even the need for one--is a beautiful thing to contemplate. It's worth investigating, whether or not we ever arrive at that point. The April issue, in print soon, explores this strand of classical liberal thought.

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.
