The Politics of Loveliness

With less than a month to go before the British public decide who they want to lead the country. New election promises have become a staple of our daily news intake. In past elections issues of ‘competence’ and ‘reliability’ dominated the headlines. Yet this time round there seems to be a competition to decide who is…

Tip Jar open

In the last few months Libertarian Home has been working hard to entertain, facilitate, educate and represent as many libertarians as possible. We held a conference, designed leaflets and shot videos. Some of this was funded by ticket sales but none of it has made a profit. Without the ability to hire help, pay honoraria, and…

Shed scheduled to slide southwards

I needed to get an old shed taken away. Whether the council tip will take it is a complex business. The council website says I shouldn’t burn it. So better left to someone else to take away. The leading provider of that service is the council, who sent a bureaucrat acted who exactly like any…

The Panama Papers Tell Us Nothing and We Have No Solutions

What exactly do the Panama Papers tell us? Nothing, absolutely nothing. There is nothing surprising in the Panama Papers at all. The Guardian have made a good job of the whole shock horror, class war, what about the poor millenials thing, but ultimately there is very little to say. Is anyone surprised that wealthy people…

#BrusselsAttacks Are Not an Excuse for Arresting an Idiot

As many of you will be aware earlier this week a group of crazed jihadists brought death and destruction to the streets of Brussels. They killed over 30, injured hundreds and damaged important infrastructure. After incidents of this nature emotions often run high and some people react in stupid ways. One example is Matthew Doyle from…

#JuniorDoctors We Don’t Pay Doctors for Saving Lives

If you’ve been following the wonderful Sam Bowman on Twitter recently you will have noticed his rather amusing ‘Trolling Campaign’ against the #JuniorDoctors pay dispute. Or as some of us might describe it, his attempt to talk sense to them. Sam’s intelligent, logical views can be summed up in a nice article he wrote for…

The Crime the Baby Boomers Actually Committed

In typical fashion Brendan O’Neill has taken it upon himself to once again prick the bubble of Generation Y moaners. This time in relation to their gripes with the Baby Boomers and all their ‘wealth’… To see how entrenched historical amnesia has become, consider this remark made by a member of Generation Y, those born…

#Brexit: Can we be Proud of Britain’s History?

British MP Liam Fox said last week in a speech discussing why Britain should leave the EU that Britain had a proud history that it didn’t have to hide from… “The United Kingdom, is one of the few countries in the European Union that does not need to bury its 20th century history” #scc16 —…

The virtuosity of individualism

Conventional wisdom dictates that individualism is a destructive force which has enraptured and degraded our society. According to leftist orthodoxy it manifested itself in our culture with Thatcherism and rampant consumerism and has infected the “selfish” millennial generation, the only explanation for their worrying right-wing tendencies. Conventional wisdom is, as is so often the case, quite wrong. I…

Stop giving in to terrorism, stand up to it!

It is little wonder that over a decade after the “war on terror” was declared terrorism is still going strong. Indeed, it is having rather a successful recruitment drive. It is not just that it provides a fulfilling ideology for young men and women to cling to, it is just so damnably effective! I do not…
