Weekend Insights – Of Narnians and Cryptocurrencies

Welcome back to Weekend Insights, your LCI “President’s Corner” of miscellaneous articles, events, books, vids, and whatever else I’m thinking about… 

Just a few links for today for your viewing pleasure…

(This is probably in response to Visa’s prior announcement from a week ago.) Wild!

You know what vaccinates you against statism and won’t get you prosecuted (yet)? Our book Faith Seeking Freedom! (Can’t let an excellent play-on-words opportunity go to waste.)

Cheers, and have a great week!

This book will help you take your political conversations to the next level.

In Faith Seeking Freedom, the Libertarian Christian Institute has gathered together some of the brightest minds at the intersection of Christianity and libertarianism to collect brief but thoughtful answers to over a hundred questions frequently posed to liberty-loving believers.
