Less than a month after the inauguration of Donald Trump as President of the United States, it is still unclear to many what exactly his presidency will mean for civil liberties, immigration, free markets, international trade, and war and peace. To discuss the Trump presidency and the US and European libertarian movements’ continued relevance, all are welcome to Mises UK’s intimate symposium in South Kensington featuring Jim Turney, former US Libertarian Party Chair.

Interview: Matt Battaglioli on ‘The Consequences of Equality’


I used a different recorder for this particular podcast. For some reason, the recorder has me and Matt out of sync and gives the impression that I have a habit of interrupting him at the end of his answers, which is slightly annoying to listen to. Matt will confirm that I did not in fact do this. For my part, I’ll return to my old Skype recorder. 

The Consequences of Equality is a critical analysis of egalitarianism. Economics, political theory, ethical theory, and sociology are all used to tackle some of the most controversial questions of the day: “What is the nature of equality?” “Are people truly equal, and in what ways?” “What would it mean if they are not?” and, most importantly, “What occurs when a society fails to accept the inevitability of inequality?” —Dr. Richard Lynn

An Appeal from the Libertarian Alliance (UK)


CLICK HERE TO GO TO OUR CROWDFUNDING APPEAL 

We humbly ask our supporters to help us improve our website, blog, and archive. Already a big “thank you” goes out to Derek Bernard, Nick Russell, Tom Rogers, Neil Lock, and Hedley Lester for supporting our appeal.

The Libertarian Alliance currently has two websites (thelibertarianalliance.com and libertarian.co.uk, the former used as a Blog and the latter as an Archive).

There is here a mass of original high-quality libertarian, anarchist, and conservative literature published over the decades since our establishment in 1979 which needs to be better organised and more widely available. There is also a need to merge the old website with the new one. In addition to more than a thousand essays in our archives, there are also multimedia files of lectures at Libertarian Alliance conferences, along with our appearances in the media.  Continue reading

The Libertarian Book Of TRUMP


In a new book, “The Trump Revolution: The Donald’s Creative Destruction Deconstructed,” I argue that Donald J. Trump is the quintessential post-constitutional candidate.

In the “Opening Statement,” titled “Welcome To The Post-Constitutional Jungle,” oldies will recognize a nod to the Guns N’ Roses classic, “Welcome to the Jungle,” as well as to broadcaster Mark Levin’s coinage.

We inhabit what Levin has termed a post-constitutional America. The libertarian (and classical conservative) ideal—where the chains that tether us to an increasingly tyrannical national government are loosened and power is devolved once again to the smaller units of society—is a long way away.
