Buying Crypto is a Libertarian Virtue

Buying crypto should be done not only for investment purposes but as a libertarian in principle. Why? When you buy and hold crypto and its price rises it creates an incentives for developers to develop and discover new applications of the technology. This decentralized tech will prove to be a godsend when the burden of […]

Gentrification & The North Pole

I highly recommend Libertarians watch through the 7 episodes of, “The North Pole”. An amusing web series about Oakland natives dealing with gentrification. Now as a Libertarian and an economics junkie my first impulse was to explain the economic reasons gentrification happens. Explain how government policies making it harder for natives to thrive and how […]

The Social Promise of Blockchain

One of the greatest things about the promise of Blockchain technology is it offers solutions the ideological desires of individualists, propertarians and egalitarians can be satisfied by.

Being an effective libertarian advocate

Some critical thinking when it comes to trying to convince someone of your position. There are two facets to the discussion: The problem – what the person is worried about and feels needs to be addressed The solution – the course of action desired to solve said problem As a libertarian I’m often less concerned […]

Their slow response to both men show how their desire to maintain power trumps any desire for justice and how unaccountable public officials can be. When the controversy broke out with Weinstein, Spacey, Laurer […]

Marketing the Liberty Message

When I suggest that people care about how they present and advocate ideas (being a good listener, empathy, positivity, framing to your audiences values), I sometimes get a pushback that basically suggests… – If people can’t get behind an idea stated in its most abrasive and disruptive form then they somehow must ardently be against […]

Politics and Corruption

Politics results in corruption either way. If big government values are the political flavor of the moment big money interests (big business, big labor, etc.) will agitate for new taxes and regulations that hurt their competition. If small government values are the political flavor of the moment big money interests will agitate for less taxes […]
