Anaheim, Ca. — Police officers shoot non-lethal rounds including bean bags and pepper spray into a crowd of protesters that included children. They were protesting police brutality and several fatal police shootings that took place recently.
The police are supposed to protect and serve, but we regularly see police abuse. What’s going on? What do [...]
How often have libertarians been called hypocrites for doing things like driving on roads, collecting social security, and even promoting libertarian legal systems, i.e., “forcing” the non-aggression principle on people? Too often to count. But [...]
Don’t Be a Lazy Libertarian
Lately there seems to be a brouhaha regarding conspiracy theorists in the ranks of the liberty movement. Many of my personal friends and fellow Skeptical Libertarian contributors have opined it is downright detrimental to getting [...]
