Unveiling the New Lib​er​tar​i​an​ism​.org

Today it is my pleasure to announce the launch of the new Lib​er​tar​i​an​ism​.org. The team has been working on this redesign for six months and we’re really happy with the result.

The new Lib​er​tar​i​an​ism​.org isn’t just a fresh coat of paint. While our principled message of justice, prosperity, responsibility, tolerance, cooperation, and peace remains the same, we’ve rethought everything about how we introduce and explore that message and the ideas and history that inform it. You’ll find the site much easier to use and more helpful in guiding you through learning about libertarianism, whether you’re brand new to the ideas of liberty or looking to dig deep into particular topics.

This begins with our “What is a libertarian?” page, setting out the basics. It introduces the history, and sketches out how libertarians inform public policy. We think this page is the best one out there for people wanting to know what libertarianism is and how it applies to politics and policy.

The rethinking of the website continues into the way we’ve organized our vast library of essays, podcasts, videos, and books. We’ve grouped these into topics, such as individual rights, foreign policy, taxation, capitalism, socialism, immigration, and feminism. Each topic is introduced with an article from the Encyclopedia of Libertarianism and, for many of them, we’ve also selected some of what we think is our best content to help you begin exploring.

I think you’ll find the new Lib​er​tar​i​an​ism​.org to be the best resource out there for discovering and learning about the philosophy, politics, and history of liberty. I want to thank all of my Cato Institute colleagues who worked to bring this new website to life. And thank you for being part of our mission to make the world a freer, more peaceful, and more prosperous place.
