The Southern Avenger Predicted the Alt Right in 2009

It was 2009 and the freshness of the liberty movement was still in the air with hope on the horizon, even with the recent election of Barack Obama as President. The liberty movement was an organized group on the right that would push back against the status quo; an alternative right of sorts. At least that’s what the once fiery paleolibertarian writer Jack Hunter called it back in 2009. A movement he could be proud of, with the likes of Paulites and Buchanites, who could deliver a huge blow to the neoconservatives and left alike. This alt-right in its infancy stage… Keep Reading

A Donald Trump Presidency Indicates the Necessity of Alt-Right Libertarianism

On January 20th, the reality finally set in. Donald Trump was sworn in as President of the United States. The anti-establishment, anti-globalist firebrand was at the helm of the most powerful position in these United States. The power that grew throughout the Bush and Obama years gave the Presidency an unprecedented amount of power. The power is there, but can this power be used to reduce government even slightly? Just within days of his presidency, Trump answered that question by signing an executive order to remove the United States from the corporate-devised Trans-Pacific Partnership. The Madman that is Donald Trump… Keep Reading

The Arms Industry War on America

Recently, the film Man Down premiered in theaters across the United States. The film showcases the negative effects that war has both on the people who serve in them and their families back home. The film has the viewer immersed in the story, and I couldn’t help but leave the film thinking about the problems resulting from American militarism. How is it that we have 200,000 veterans who are homeless? Why do we have one in five veterans ending up with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder? And why are 20 veterans committing suicide a day?   This depressing state of affairs has… Keep Reading

The Fight against Communism is Far from Over

The world is a better place now that  former Cuban dictator Fidel Castro has died.  One more dirty commie has been physically removed from the earth, so to speak. Unfortunately for the world, communism is still lurking and waiting for yet another chance to strike the evil capitalist pigs (such as libertarians) of the world and the United States specifically. We live in a country today that has prominent athletes wearing shirts with the likes of Che Guevara and Fidel Castro, for crying out loud!   This one fact shows us that the world has not learned from the sheer… Keep Reading

Jeff Sessions is Not Powerful Enough to Stop the Marijuana Industry

The news that President-elect Donald Trump picked Senator Jeff Sessions to be the next Attorney General has many libertarians up in arms for the pick. The Senator has been one of the strongest proponents of the prohibition of marijuana at the federal level and with this pick, we must hold Trump’s feet to the fire. Sessions has opposed legislation to make mandatory minimum sentencing less harsh and has said that “Good people don’t smoke marijuana.” Despite these ridiculous policies and ideas from Sessions, we must realize that marijuana legalization will not come through the federal government but will be achieved… Keep Reading

Students Must Fight Against Cultural Marxism’s Iron Grip on Campuses

A generation ago, we lived in a society that accepted free speech as a bedrock principle. This is not so much the case today as we in live a society that not only advocates against free speech but shuts it down unconstitutionally, as well.  According to the Foundation for Individual Rights in Education (FIRE), around 55 percent of college campuses across these great United States has some sort of restriction on free expression. How has a country gone from valuing free thought to needing trigger warnings so that others will not become offended? Social Marxism and egalitarianism are the main… Keep Reading

How Gary Johnson’s Failure Shows That Selling Out Doesn’t Work for Libertarians

Being dead-set in the middle of the libertarian students movement gives me a unique perspective in the development of the cause. It cannot be understated on how much the Johnson/Weld campaign has damaged the movement, both as a whole and for the future. The embarrassment began back when Gary demanded that Jewish bakers be compelled by state force to bake Nazi cakes. That was a pathetic misstep, and one that he has since amplified with many similar concessions of libertarian principle. Johnson sympathizers within the libertarian movement have said that these types of statements are necessary to remain pragmatic, but… Keep Reading
