Narnians Hate the State Too!

David Theroux, Founder and President of the Independent Institute, President of the C.S. Lewis Society of California, and friend of LibertarianChristians.com has recently published a three-part series on the political philosophy of C.S. Lewis entitled “C.S. Lewis on Mere Liberty and Statism.” I highly recommend these articles for your reading (see the links following my synopsis).

Lewis, of course, is well-respected among Christians for his excellent stories and compelling explication of theology. Turns out he also favored liberty as a defining characteristic of civilized society. He reaches this conclusion through a consistent application of natural law.

Mission Accomplished, Obama-Style

On January 23, 2009 a two-day-inaugurated President Obama ordered his first murder of Iraqis with Predator drones. Now, exactly sixteen months past his inauguration, Barack Obama has failed to live up to one of the simplest measurable campaign promises I can imagine, a complete pullout of Iraq in sixteen months. We haven’t seen one brigade returned home without another taking its place, in fact nearly all aspects of the Federal Government’s Middle East interventions continue to increase in scope.
