Property, Exchange, and Contract: As Told By My Intellectual Influences

Property, Exchange, and Contract: As Told By My Intellectual Influences
Civilization Depends on Property, Exchange, and Contracts. A properly functioning society depends on the ability of its inhabitants to successfully comprehend the significance and importance of the natural law theory which emphasizes property, exchange, and contracts. Without a basic understanding of these ideas and the ability to enforce them individuals will succumb to, at first, minor inconveniences but will later... Read More

North Dakota, don’t be a pansy

North Dakota, don’t be a pansy
Beware of Zombies Every state in the US, including North Dakota, are content with being wimps, docile and subservient to the gang in DC. Can’t be different, heaven forbids states to develop their way of life and culture. No, no, no citizen, that’s radical. Probably racist, xenophobic and conspiratorial too. Localism and self-governance are far too simplistic in a complicated... Read More

Politicians are Creeps

Politicians are Creeps
  They Support the Initiation of Force and Desire the Illegitimate Power of Authority I’m genuinely creeped out by most politicians. The idea of someone begging for authority over other people seems bizarre to me. Just the phrase “authority over people” doesn’t make sense. Are there equal human rights? Do individuals own and control their bodies? Should individuals be free... Read More

My Journey to Liberty

My Journey to Liberty
Journey starts early Growing up in the 90’s and early 00’s, I watched a lot of action, thriller and war movies. The good guys were always the CIA, FBI, US military, or local PD and the bad guys were the drug dealers, fringe characters, and the foreigners. The opening monolog usually revealed the plotting of crimes or attacks with suspenseful... Read More

Secession: July 4th Edition

Secession: July 4th Edition
Fourth of Nullify Two-hundred forty years ago on July 4th, a voluntary association of free nation states seceded from the British Empire. Each “colony” independent, self-governed, and sovereign. King George mentioned each of the sovereign states in the Treaty of Paris, rather than the “United States of America.” These free nation states, contrary to government approved textbooks, did not form a...

Your Children Are Libertarian

Your Children Are Libertarian
Gather ’round Children Keep your hands to yourself. That’s it! Children at a very young age are taught not to hit or to take things that aren’t yours, and to cooperate with others. Libertarianism takes that same concept and applies it to everyone, including government. Responsible parents teach their children to behave and morals. I don’t think any reasonable parent...

Three Questions for Mr. Godfread

Three Questions for Mr. Godfread
Dear, Mr. Godfread I have assembled quotations from Mr. Godfread, and my attempt is to take what he has expressed, analyze them and pose a series of counter-questions.   “Free enterprise and the free market is critical to all businesses. Insurance is no different. More competition means lower prices and better products for consumers. I understand these principles and will bring them... Read More

The North Dakota Public Service Commission is Inherently Inefficient and Unethical

The North Dakota Public Service Commission is Inherently Inefficient and Unethical
The Public Service Commission claims the ability and authority to manipulate market processes according to its idea of a planned economic order; I oppose this claim. The P.S.C. dictates which businesses may enter certain fields, how property owners may use their land, how unowned land will be used, and how individuals may establish contracts. Unless granted special privilege by the P.S.C.... Read More

2016 North Dakota Primary and What’s Ahead: Why Both Major Parties Can’t Solve Anything

2016 North Dakota Primary and What’s Ahead: Why Both Major Parties Can’t Solve Anything
If it wasn’t obvious North Dakota is a “Red” state the 2016 Primary should be a firm reminder. Voter turnout was about 120,000 and in each statewide race Republican candidates received overwhelming majority support; about 85% average.  This isn’t so much of a surprise as it is an embarrassment. Even if the people of North Dakota have similar values their... Read More
