Libertarianism and the Importance of Causality

Even though support for the free market has become stronger in the last decades, libertarianism can still only be considered a fringe movement. Most people still believe that many social problems are due to “market failure” and therefore require State intervention to be “solved”. Despite the obvious flaws of modern socialism, with its unlikely combination of redistributive welfare state and globalist crony capitalism, and despite libertarianism’s robust philosophical and empirical foundations, the liberalism of Ludwig von Mises is still far from enjoying the majority support that it so amply deserves.

My article “The Education of the Modern Socialist” deserves a follow up. That first part showed that a change has occurred in the definition of "socialism"; a necessary one in view of the failures of this ideology during the last century.

Why Libertarians Should Support the Multipolar World

The current international tensions have intensified a debate that has existed for at least a decade, between two radically different views of the world and of international relations: the unipolar world and the multipolar world. When libertarians disagree on foreign policy, that difference of world view is often the underlying cause. The purpose of this article is to show that the concept of the unipolar world is contrary to the principles of libertarianism and that the multipolar world is an important step in the direction of liberty internationally.
