  • Nike and the Colonial Flag

    Nike and the Colonial Flag

    Any White, non-Jew who wants to offer his opinions on both the Holocaust and US slavery has got to be a fool. Nevertheless, I’m going to do both. I’m prompted by the issue of Nike deciding not to feature the flag of the 13 original US colonies on one of its shoe styles. All countries […]

  • The Shoe On The Other Foot

    The Shoe On The Other Foot

      My kids spent a significant portion of their childhoods growing up in a little town in Idaho. It’s a lot smaller than Tikrit, or Basra or Helmand province, but little Idaho City and Boise County can serve as an illustration of a principle. What principle? Well, the principle of people of simple means resisting […]

  • Protecting Intellectual Property

    Protecting Intellectual Property

    Those of us who come from the Libertarian, Anarchist, Capitalist, Voluntaryist or similar schools of thought are used to dealing with coercive elements who lay claim to our property, particularly in the form of confiscating our “fair share” of taxes. The coercers begin with some premise that gives them, they say, the moral right to […]

  • Please Stop Voting To Hurt Other People

    Please Stop Voting To Hurt Other People

    I get so tired of people waving national flags and bragging about how they live in Freedom. Because they don’t. Freedom is the condition of every individual having complete control over his or her life and property. Therefore, – if somebody can successfully vote to have your money taken from you, you don’t live in […]

  • Government Job Creation

    Government Job Creation

    In their never-ending quest to garner enough votes to stay in power politicians have several time-proven tactics. One of these tactics is to promise that initiatives will “create new jobs” for the community. This is how a pure government program works. They announce there will be a new $100 annual tax. However, that tax will […]

  • Passport To Freedom Conference

    Well, it’s the Monday after the Nomad Capitalist conference, Passport to Freedom. It was a blast and one of the best things about attending was the ability to meet and network with so many people doing their part to move Freedom forward. Andrew Henderson and Matt DuBiel put together a superb conference and kept it […]

  • Building Personal Freedom

    Do you consider yourself to be free? Are you more free today than you were ten years ago? Twenty years ago? Do you think our society is moving toward more individual freedom, or away from it? What I see is steadily increasing regulation of every individual’s activities and what he is ‘allowed’ to do with […]

  • Freedom App Interview At Freedom Lovin

    Many thanks to Kevin over at Freedom Lovin‘ for interviewing me about The Freedom App and living with personal Freedom. Our discussion was eclectic and, I hope, very interesting. Kevin is another person encouraging people to build their own Freedom without waiting for some government to provide it to them. (Cuz’ that’s a looong wait.) […]

  • Interview With Nomad Capitalist

    Andrew Henderson over at NomadCapitalist.com interviewed me for his radio and podcast program. We talk about living life as a permanent traveler, the contrast between countries where prospects are improving rather than diminishing, how weaker countries actually offer greater freedom because they have less ability to coerce and related issues. I hope our discussion stimulates […]

  • Not Being Governed

    Many thanks to the folks over at NotBeingGoverned for featuring my 2,000-word article, Whose Idea of Freedom Should We Use? on their site. These guys are champions of individual freedom who come at the issue from many different perspectives and encourage lively debate. (*cough* intellectual property.) I’m a bit envious of their very busy Facebook […]

  • Hat Tip to Nomad Capitalist

    A tip of the hat and a thank you to the folks over at Nomad Capitalist for mentioning The Freedom App on their list of “Andrew’s Favorite Books on Finding Freedom.” After mentioning greats like Harry Browne, Frank Chodorov, Albert Jay Nock and Doug Casey, Andrew Henderson says; “This book outlines how life boils down […]
