Ways to Reach a Wider Audience

Yesterday I wrote a post The Way Libertarians Should Engage in Politics outlining my view that libertarians should be able to take part in politics whilst retaining our identity. Personally, I think that Adam Kokesh’s idea to run for ‘non-president’ of the united states in 2020 is a little too gimmicky but at least he…

The Way Libertarians Should Get Involved in Politics.

  Libertarian prodigy Adam Kokesh and the Anarcho-capitalist ‘zen master’ Larkin Rose have clashed recently and very publically. The reason these two well-known figures have had a heated exchange is over Adam Kokesh’s decision to run for ‘non-president’ of the united states in the next US general election. My summary of the debate is as…

How we can Make 2018 a Libertarian Year

In 2016, the Overton window of British politics became unjammed. The window is now free to move. How can libertarians best capitalise on the new opportunities presented?

Libertarian Home in 2018

There is an interesting fact circulating the internet. All living adults were born between 1900 and 2000 – an era that mostly predates the internet and both Facebook (2004) and Twitter (2006). All children were born since 2000 and their earliest memories therefore include a fully matured internet (1983) and world wide web (1991). They…

Video: The Power of Fiction with Marc Sidwell

I don’t know who wrote this summary at YouTube for the video of Marc Sidwell’s talk, entitled The Power of Fiction, but he or she got it very right: Marc argues that stories have a secret super-power. Properly formed, they can reach new audiences with world-changing ideas, and do so in a uniquely compelling way.…

Reaching 20,000

Given the upcoming snap election I thought it might be appropriate to reflect on the health of the Libertarian movement in the UK. I am of the opinion that Libertarianism, in the long run, stands a good chance of being a dominant system of ethics and political operations if it exerts cultural pressure as opposed…
