Libertarianism and the Varieties of Virtue
In Reason, William Ruger and Jason Sorens seek to offer an alternative to the sort of thick libertarianism to which many of those associated with the Center for a Stateless Society are committed. They seek to defend what they call “virtue libertarianism.” Sometimes, they seem to be concerned with virtues in the narrow sense of…
What’s Wrong with Inequality?
If you believed the talking heads, you might think concern with inequality in our society was just a product of envy and economic ignorance. That’s another reason not to believe the talking heads. The fact that someone has more wealth than I do doesn’t injure me or make me worse off. And the economy isn’t…

Leviathan and Behemoth
Introduction The capitalist economy has gone through another shock, and the potential for another, larger one is on the horizon. While it’s seemingly in its death throes, capitalism continues to fuel growth. Under such a system we have seen a vast improvement in general living standards across the globe, despite rigged markets and the omnipresent…
The Untenability of Libertarian Transphobia
Transgender people and issues are receiving more attention in media and policy spaces, but there seems to be some uncertainty from libertarians on how to go about approaching them in both personal and political contexts. This is odd from a group that boasted acceptance of same-sex unions long before the mainstream left or right and…

Individualism, Anti-Essentialism and Intersectionality
Social justice is, in large part, based in the concept of identity politics, or politics based on oppression, privilege, and group identity. Identity politics is important because of social and historical context. Understanding group interactions and their effect on the individuals in these groups is essential to fighting oppression. While many libertarians and individualist anarchists…
Il Problema Conoscitivo delle Prerogative
Nel suo saggio classico, “The Use of Knowledge in Society” (L’Uso della Conoscenza nella Società, es), F. A. Hayek parla del concetto di conoscenza distribuita. Ogni individuo ha una conoscenza unica che deriva dalle sue esperienze e dalle sue preferenze, conoscenza a cui altri, per quanto informati, non possono accedere. Scrive Hayek: Dire che la…

Why Human Action in a Freed Market Means We Must Continue the Fight
Within the libertarian blogosphere, there has been a huge debate between libertarians who believe we should join the fight against privilege and those who think we shouldn’t. This debate is crucial to the libertarian movement, for it calls into question the scope of coercion (i.e. – is privilege a form of non-aggressive coercion?) and our…
