Progressives Against Progress

This entry is part 14 of 22 in the series Great Libertarian Memes

“Progress” is an abused word these days, especially by bureaucrats and the special interest groups that cater to them. Yet such groups, in the name of progress and social justice, support government intervention through intervention in the market, minimum or living wages, and universal healthcare. We find neither progress nor justice in government actions that advance one group at the expense of another.

Politics Hurt

This entry is part 13 of 22 in the series Great Libertarian Memes

When confronted with a problem most people today turn to the government—but in reality, it’s often the government that created the problem and its continued involvement only exacerbates the problem. Politics distorts free market signals, quashes rights, and, quite bluntly, kills individuals.

Down With Censorship!*

This entry is part 8 of 22 in the series Great Libertarian Memes

First, let’s get clear on what kind of censorship we oppose. We oppose any censorship by government, because only the government has the “authority” to legally use force against you for expressing your ideas. Your neighbor might kick you off his property if you say something he dislikes, or a privately owned newspaper can refuse to publish your letter to the editor, but neither should legally use force against you to shut you up.

“First They Came…”

“There is a time for everything,” says Solomon, the wise author of Ecclesiastes. Are we mindful enough of when it is necessary and right to proclaim justice on behalf of others? Let us not be silent when we have good opportunity “to speak truth to power.”
