My Advice Towards Liberty

My Advice Towards Liberty
I’ve already written about what I consider to be rational strategy for Libertarian-minded individuals in North Dakota. I would like to elaborate on my previous points.   The Libertarian Party of North Dakota should aim to be considered the ‘Party of Principle’, regardless of how it may be interpreted by those of opposing beliefs.

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?

Even if the people of North Dakota have similar values their... Read More

The Public Service Commission, Brady Wind Farm, and Property rights

The Public Service Commission, Brady Wind Farm, and Property rights
  After reviewing the story regarding the Brady Wind Farm it seems obvious this is a perfect example of the importance of property rights. When settling disputes between parties the main and most important question to address is, “Whose property is involved?” This may seem like a basic question but property rights and contracts are fundamental in peaceful human cooperation....
