Beyond Libertarianism: Cultivating a Cultural Repertoire

If you delve into the works of the great Austro-Libertarian authors like Ludwig von Mises, Hans-Hermann Hoppe, and Murray Rothbard, and carefully examine their annotations, you will discover that their writings are rich with intriguing sources that extend beyond economics and the libertarian framework of social theory. These incredible men were erudite scholars.

Is having children an act of aggression?

Recently, I encountered some comments on social media asserting that having children violates the non-aggression principle (NAP) and constitutes an authoritarian action. This view may appear illogical to many. However, it is not the first time I have encountered such arguments. What particularly surprised and motivated me to write this article is how some people struggled to counter this flawed argument, and even more concerning, how some were persuaded by its initial premise.

Freedom’s Renaissance: Reviving a Culture of Liberty

Culture is a term that refers to the beliefs, customs, practices, and social behaviours shared by a particular group or society. It encompasses the knowledge, art, language, philosophy, and social institutions that characterise a group of individuals. Culture can only be alive to the extent that people practice it. Cultural changes don’t happen by chance, and culture is always changing, sometimes for the better, sometimes for the worse, but it is always people who are acting to change the culture or to preserve it.

Let’s Train to Take the Train to Liberty

Javier Milei has now been elected for a quarter and the whole world could see how strongly he talks. Strongly in two ways. In his wording, first. He probably is the first president of a significant country who names the leftists like what they truly are: Evil. But more importantly, more to the point of this paper, Javier Milei is strong in his words by the soundness of his arguments. And it is easy to witness: very few people dare to argue against him, very few will counter-argue on inflation, for instance.

Socialism is a “natural” force of attraction (and not a rational argument)

Socialism is fundamentally a “natural” force of attraction, and in no way a rational argument. Socialism is like gravity. It is indeed the path of least immediate effort (according to several criteria), the line of steepest immediate slope, and therefore a considerable force of attraction.

The Libertarian Revolution

Libertarianism is growing and is becoming mainstream. The first libertarian president in History has been elected in Argentina, Javier Milei, giving even more visibility to the ideas of liberty. But the fact that presidents and other politicians that declare themselves libertarian are being elected is merely a consequence of a revolution that has been taking place for much longer than that.

Do not put all your eggs in one basket

Irrespective of one’s personal beliefs or moral values, the absence of viable refuge due to the universal application of rules carries inherent perils. Should a problem arise that impacts you, as problems inevitably do within any society, be it economic or otherwise, you shall find yourself bereft of options, devoid of choice.

The Matrix: A Journey of Individual Freedom

The Matrix can be seen as an allegory for oppressive governments who suppress individual freedom and autonomy with an increasing number of arbitrary laws and regulations, and enforce them by means of force with their police or military. As the machines will do anything in their power to keep control over humans, so do authoritarian governments. They will demonise, silence and hunt, even outside their frontiers, anybody who goes against them.

Libertarianism in One Piece : A Quest for Freedom

The primary theme of One Piece, at first glance, is the ‘spiritual journey’ of the protagonist, Monkey D. Luffy, who is in search of the elusive island known as ‘Laugh Tale’ with the goal of becoming the ‘King of Pirates’. This quest can be seen as a metaphor for a spiritual journey, akin to the search for the Holy Grail in medieval narratives. However, it’s intriguing to delve into the philosophical and political undertones that permeate the story, particularly the portrayal of Luffy as a paragon of libertarianism.

We need hundreds of Tax Havens

We have to go back to the realm of ideas, back to the economic principles, common sense and rationality. We have to renormalise high-performance, boldness and rationality. And in the case of the tax havens, nations need to be optimised into becoming competitive tax havens and not into becoming a tax hell where the State is the central planner of the economy. Tax hells have been tried several times and they failed. And the more a nation gradually goes towards becoming a tax hell, the more it becomes poorer.
