To set the record straight on the matter of liberty and immigration, let’s look to one of the most influential classical liberal thinkers, Ludwig von Mises, for guidance…
The 2nd Amendment is so hotly debated in part because of the order of its two clauses: The prefatory clause: “A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State” and the operative clause: “the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.” In this video, […]

There has never been a better time to end American involvement in Yemen’s Civil War, and there has never been a better time to limit the president’s war powers.
China’s National Security Law has reduced Hong Kong’s autonomy and made it easier for the CCP regime to punish pro-democracy activists.
The idea of excusing Qatar’s terrible human rights abuses on the grounds of cultural differences is not only anti-liberty and anti-reason. It is disingenuous and utterly reprehensible.
In Iran, people across all generations and backgrounds are demonstrating together with one voice. As the weeks go by, Iranians are remaining resolute in demanding real change.
A libertarian’s opposition to American military involvement in this war should not be because of edgy nonsense about Russia being provoked, or the historically ignorant idea that Ukraine is only defending itself because it’s taking orders from the West.
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.
Another Pride Month full of celebrations all over the world has come and gone. If not for the FDA, there would’ve been hundreds of thousands more people celebrating.

Despite a myriad of evidence, Russia claims that the Ukrainians faked the atrocities in Bucha as a false flag attack. Sadly, many in the West buy this narrative.
How did healthcare in the U.S. get so messy, convoluted, and inefficient? Why is it so hard to know what a simple visit to the doctor — let alone a surgery — will cost?
Believe it or not, there IS an immigration policy that can credibly be called conservative. It’s a policy follows the examples of other English-speaking countries, and one that would reward skill and effort while protecting the institutions that have made America great. It also acknowledges that freedom’s strongest advocates come from places where freedom was […]

In Part 1 of […]
