Libertarianism.org’s first week was a terrific success. If you haven’t visited yet, I encourage you to do so. The site’s an excellent place to learn about and explore the theory and history of liberty.
This week Libertarianism.org added
- A new video in our Libertarian View series. Blogger and GMU professor Don Boudreaux tells how his working‐class upbringing and economics training led him to libertarianism.
- George H. Smith published a new essay in his Excursions series. Smith examines colonial reaction to the Declaration of Independence’s list of grievances as well as the political principles informing its drafting.
- Jason Kuznicki wrote a long blog post on the difference between “ideal acts morality” and “common sense ethics”—and how these two approaches play out in politics and real life.
- Miles Pope began a series of posts on Jan Narveson’s classic book, The Libertarian Idea.
- I blogged about Elizabeth Warren’s popular argument for paying higher taxes and how it relates to the intriguing subset of political philosophy dealing with political obligation.
- Finally, Libertarianism.org expanded its social networking reach to Google+. So if you’re a Google+ user, be sure to circle Libertarianism.org. And while you’re at it, we’re also on Facebook and Twitter.
