Weekend Insights – The End of 2020

Welcome back to Weekend Insights, your LCI “President’s Corner” of miscellaneous articles, events, books, vids, and whatever else I’m thinking about… Since I didn’t get it published Sunday morning, this is going out via email on Monday, but hey better late than never!

Merry Christmas! I hope you had a terrific holiday full of family, fun, and joy in Christ. Did you gift someone with a copy of Faith Seeking Freedom?

It’s the last week of the year, and if you’re thinking about making that end-of-year donation to a charitable cause, I hope you’ll consider giving to the Libertarian Christian Institute. We currently have a generous donors matching dollar-for-dollar over $4000 in donations through the end of 2020, so please help us to earn that in its entirety! We are honored to serve the church through our efforts; join us in spreading the word about what it means to have a free society.

Here are just a few links to close out the year…

I was recently reminded of Hayek’s excellent essay Why I Am Not a Conservative. Perhaps you won’t agree with all of it, but you’ll certainly learn something. For further reading, check out Deirdre McCloskey’s Why You Are Not a Conservative as well.

It’s interesting to consider in retrospective Jacob Sullum’s June 2020 piece When Should Force Be Used to Protect Public Health? in light of recent months. One thing is for sure: the State is truly horrible at such a job.

For the historians among us: Just How Dark Were the Dark Ages? Neat article that shows just how much we have yet to learn about the past.

Don’t make New Years resolutions, try a Past Year Review.

What were your favorite articles from this year from LCI and beyond? Let us know in comments via Twitter (and follow me here) and Facebook.

Once again, I cannot express how wonderful it is to work with all our supporters toward the common goal of sharing liberty with others. Along the way, we get to do so much good. So to all our people everywhere, THANK YOU for your continued support. Here’s to a marvelous 2021!

Cheers, and have a great week!
