It’s time for a broader discussion about why national divorce is not a pro-liberty solution. Fundamentally, for any change in the structure of government to be pro-liberty, it must move us towards more individual liberty, not away.
The past couple of decades may have suggested that China’s competent, authoritarian style of governance may be an alternative model for the world. However, the regime is now faced with the consequences of its actions with a slim off ramp to preserve progress and power at the same time.
America needs to address its infrastructure woes, but a regressive tax with a disproportionate impact on those who can least afford it is not the way to go about finding solutions. If a federal gas tax holiday is implemented, it should be made permanent.
According to a survey from the American Farm Bureau Federation, the cost of an average 4th of July feast is up by 17 percent from 2021. Why is this?
There’s a reason why Partygate, involving senior British politicians such as PM Boris Johnson, hits a particularly raw nerve with the public
Freedom of speech during wartime is crucial for transparency. If this right doesn’t apply during wartime, does it even exist in any meaningful sense?
The factions people ally with are going through a dramatic change, but what is driving this political realignment and what does it mean for liberty?
No matter how or how often war is fought, the result is the same: it works out horribly for pretty much everyone involved. So in light of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, it’s pertinent to ask: how do governments keep convincing people that war is in their best interests? This video seeks to answer that question, […]
Inflation is the word of the day; rates in the United States have hit 40-year highs, and seemingly everyone is feeling the pain — from the gas pump to the grocery store. But with growing media attention also comes bad or misleading information. To set the record straight, we brought in the heavy muscle: Learn […]
Al-Qaeda’s terrorist attack on September 11, 2001, sought to secure the free world into giving up its freedom. The terrorists largely failed; the free world is resilient, after all. But here we are, more than 20 years later, and the Transportation Security Administration not only still exists but is still enacting its “security theater,” needlessly […]
The Guardian once called neoliberalism “the ideology at the root of all our problems.” New York Magazine called neoliberalism “the left’s favorite insult of liberals.”
But does anyone really know what the word means — or know anything about its origins?
As Vladimir Putin’s Russian troops immorally invade a sovereign nation, and with more bloodshed on the horizon, we spoke to Kevin Flanagan, SFL’s Director of Training & Engagement, currently living in Ukraine, about Putin’s power grab and the Ukranian mindset. We also spoke to Eglė Markevičiūtė, Students For Liberty’s Alumni and Vice-Minister of the Economy […]
As tensions rise between Ukraine and Russia, it can be easy to fall into the trap of picking sides. But there is no good side of war, and no good justification for it.
War, in all its forms, is wrong. Even so-called “justified” wars have had horrific unintended consequences.
With cameo appearances from Edwin Starr and George Carlin, this video lays out the Libertarian position on war in general, and Ukraine specifically.
We spoke to Students For Liberty alum and CEO of the Ukrainian Institute for Economic Leadership Mykhailo Lavrovskyi about Vladimir Putin, the Revolution of Dignity, and what Ukrainian sovereignty should look like.
Those flying cars we’ve seen for years in sci-fi films and cartoons? Yeah — still waiting. But we DO have cars that run on electricity, and they’re a big improvement over gasoline for many car buyers and for the environment.
Why, then, is it so difficult and expensive to get one?
This video seeks to answer that question, but we’ll give you a hint: state and federal government power are being leveraged in a big way.
If we’re living in late-stage capitalism, why have big companies like General Electric and Johnson & Johnson recently broken up? Weren’t we supposed to see endless consolidation and corporations that dominate the world? You might remember Duke University Professor Mike Munger from We Have a Serious Unicorn Problem. He’s back to explain, among other things, […]
A SLAM DUNK FOR LIBERTY features some of the great moments in college basketball and football history — from Michael Jordan’s championship-winning shot to Christian Laettner’s iconic buzzer-beater to Miami football’s iconoclastic dynasty — while laying out the facts around the NCAA’s century-long hypocrisy.
The history of Marxism (and its offspring, Communism) in Latin America is a sordid one. Many of its brutal dictators, including Fidel Castro, Hugo Chavez, and Pedro Castillo, have used the Marxist doctrine as a stepstool to power. But, as this video argues, those dictators only succeeded in plunging their countries into poverty — as Marxism promises to do anywhere its ideas are adopted.
The Build Back Better Act is an attempt by the Biden administration to distribute handouts for specific sets of voters ahead of the 2022 midterms
The United States government is, yet again, facing a budget crisis. Government funding is set to expire on December 3, 2021 and Congress has a deadline of December 15 to raise the debt ceiling. Otherwise, the U.S. will default on its debts, and a worldwide financial collapse becomes a possibility.
Modern Monetary Theory (MMT) is part of the reason these crises — not to mention inflation — are becoming more common. It theorizes that because modern states control currency and have the power to levy taxes, they can print as much money as they want.
As we witnessed during the 2020 election season, and as we are sure to witness during the upcoming holiday season, the United States Postal Service doesn’t exactly instill confidence.
If levied, the “billionaire tax” targeting unrealized capital gains would penalize entrepreneurship and have unprecedented destructive potential
Now that the war is over and American troops have withdrawn, how should U.S. policy treat refugees from Afghanistan? After all, the U.S. spent 20 years there and it ended in perhaps the least organized, most disastrous pullout in the history of human combat — but what, if anything, can still be salvaged?
In this video, we lay out a clear argument in favor of an open-borders policy from both an economic and a moral perspective.
The Chinese regime inherently rejects the ideas and values of individual liberty, meaningful economic freedom, transparency and human rights
Is immigration bad for the United States in 2021? Should the southern border be closed? Should we “build the wall,” as former President Donald Trump suggested?
Part 1 of Learn Liberty’s immigration series, “Why Should Conservatives Embrace Immigration?” tackles the stereotypical narratives around immigration from a Libertarian perspective — and from a statistical one.
As economic writer and researcher Daniel DiMartino describes, the economy doesn’t have a fixed number of jobs, and preventing highly skilled immigrants from entering the United States will only persuade companies to move those jobs elsewhere.
