Earlier this year, I pointed out that Trump and Republicans could learn a valuable lesson from Maine Governor Paul LePage on how to win a government shutdown. Today, let’s look at a lesson from North Carolina on how to design and implement pro-growth tax policy.

The idea of human rights began to be applied to other areas. Freedom of speech. Freedom of the press. Freedom of association. Freedom to trade, create, buy and sell, travel and move. The root was the same in every case: the core governing unit of society is located within the individual. The...

Complaints about illegal immigration are constant and repetitive.  They’re sowing chaos along the border, using welfare, taking American jobs, and their mere presence is destroying respect for the law.  Some oppose legalizing any illegal immigrants until the border is secure.

Good news:...

Our current welfare system is a dysfunctional mess. It’s bad for taxpayers and recipients. Replacing it with a universal basic income probably would make the system simpler, but at a potentially very high cost in terms of cultural capital.

 While there is no question that the innovations of Uber and Lyft have caused medallion owners and taxi companies hardship, the misguided response of these groups has often been to call for increased regulation of ride-sharing services. They argue that Uber and Lyft have an unfair advantage...

Debating access to deemed “public goods” is always a messy, dogmatic, and stinky mess. From healthcare to education to retirement, there has never been a dull moment. Of interest to libertarians should be the debate surrounding broadband internet access. This discussion is not of the net...

Unfortunately, most Americans do not bat an eye at the worst offenses committed by the presidency, namely the killing of millions in undeclared wars of choice with nations who have never attacked the United States. But Americans on both the right and the left are increasingly feeling the effects...

Don’t get me wrong, if you want to be done with the NFL and boycott them, fine. That's your right. But that this is the last straw says more about you than it does about football.

It is worth remembering more of Lord Acton than his most famous quote.  After all, as his Acton Institute biography states, "he was considered one of the most learned people of his age, unmatched for the breadth, depth, and humanity of his knowledge," and "became known as one of the most...

When I speak with people who admit they do not read as much as they would like, one of the major reasons holding them up is settling on a good book. With as many options out there as there are, it is easy to get lost in the noise. That’s why I...

After suffering continual abuse at the hands of her husband, Rebeca Lolosoli formed a “women-only” village called Umoja in 1990 in the Samburu region of Kenya. She wanted to create a safe-haven for abused women seeking freedom from the toxic and unjust society they all came from.

If people do not imitate the president, either agreeing with whatever he does or being outraged by it, they will glue themselves to other figures in culture: tv stars, pop idols, football heroes, public intellectuals — we cannot escape the gravitational pull of powerful models beckoning us by...

Hurricane season has once again reminded modern America of the limitations of being human. Is our attempt to civilize Florida just another example of reaching for the forbidden fruit? Should we have told the Army Corps of Engineers, local governments, and private developers, “careful, Icarus,”...

On any list of knee-jerk PC verities, the “obvious” racism of Chief Wahoo — the cartoon character that has been the Indians logo for seven decades — would be near the top. I get why people make that claim, but I’m going to argue that they’re wrong.

No question that the duel is a violent tradition and the liberals of the 19th century were right to shame it into near non-existence. On the other hand, duels were a great way to minimize the carnage resulting from human conflict. They had social utility: only those who disagree risk life and...

That moral vision grounded thinkers like First Things founder Richard John Neuhaus and its guiding spirit Michael Novak. Many writers and scholars at the Acton Institute and elsewhere carry on this tradition. But it’s waning at Fr. Neuhaus’ old magazine. In its place we’re seeing pleas for...

London’s days of over-priced, uncertain, and dangerous cabs ended when Uber started operating there in 2012. The ride-share company quickly went on to dominate the London private hire car market. Today, that was all thrown out as Transport for London (TfL) revoked Uber’s license to operate.

Supporters of the “fight for 15” go to great lengths to insist that such a hike will have little or no adverse effects on employment for low-skill workers. However, such claims fly in the face of the economic truism that “there are substitutes for everything.”

If you're reading this, I'm thrilled. My email must have made it through to the editor. Admittedly, I wasn't sure what to expect considering I sent it from a new phone that beeps and buzzes at me more than the hideous little robot with the swiveling head on Star Wars. I think his name was Joy...

Free market reforms have ushered in prosperity for millions of the world’s poor. But can governments and international organizations really plan a market economy from the top down? The short answer is, “No.”

One of the options was to make an “offer in compromise” — send Customs a check, and if they deemed the amount to be high enough, they would return his truck to him. “That’s like a shakedown,” Serrano said.

They did not come to beat Nazis or chase Pro-Trumpers off the Mall, the way the mainstream media suggested on Friday. Instead, thousands of Juggalos — ardent fans of the Insane Clown Posse (ICP) duo —assembled near the Lincoln Memorial to protest their vilification by Uncle Sam. They came to...

I had already changed out of my sensible flats, pantyhose, and business casual separates and into my Converse High Tops and shorts. I flung my backpack purse over my shoulder, and I was out the door. Laundry, cleaning, and all other forms of adulting were going to have to wait. I was going to...

In the past three years, we’ve seen two separate votes for the independence of one nation from another political body. First, in 2014, was the vote for Scottish independence from Great Britain, which failed to pass. Then, in 2016, came Brexit where Great Britain voted to withdraw from the...

Our generation has little real-world experience to deal with reactionary movements and their effects. But we ignore such movements at our peril. I show that such rightist thought has deep roots tracing to the early 19th century, when the followers of Hegel split into right and left branches,...

Since the 1960s, the FDA’s relentless demand for ever more expensive (both in time and money) clinical testing is the main cause of sky-high prescription drug prices.

Poland’s Law and Justice party has made international headlines due to its radical reform policy regarding the country’s judiciary system. These reforms are problematic, but they are not the only reason to be concerned about the future of freedom in the Central European state.

The real world effect of unions is that a minority of workers exert their power over the majority, limiting the number of available jobs, creating lags in productivity, and lowering job security for all.

The problem of inequality has often been considered to be one of the biggest social problems of our generation. Widespread concern about the great disparities of income and wealth have fueled anti-globalization sentiments all around the world, and threaten to undermine the advances in trade,...

Absolutely nothing–no amount of regulation, no number of belligerent articles, no plethora of hectoring denunciations by big shots–is going to stop ICOs from completely disrupting the way companies raise funding in the future. The crypto market has been too wonderfully successful without the...

As a professor, I’ve attended many administrative meetings. The one near-constant thing I, and others, have noticed at these meetings is that the coffee always runs out, but at least a small remnant of a donut remains. Why this occurs tells a great deal about how we use social norms to solve...

Government-managed medicine, under the guise of helping those most in need, does quite the opposite: it creates a two-tier system, arguably similar to that of Germany today.Over the past decades, the free market has provided consistent and superb specialist care—for the rich or poor— because...

This is the appeal of the crime novel, of the police detectives on television and in the movies. We see them as avenging angels, as heroic figures who will stop at nothing. We see them as empathetic warriors who, like Michael Connelly's Bosch, will not let politics or other impediments stop them...

Business owners are greedy. They would love to charge us high prices. But a system of free enterprise means that they can only earn money if they cater to our needs and wants. So long as politicians aren’t showering them with bailouts, subsidies, or handouts, they compete to provide us ever-...

If any good could come of this tragedy, it should prompt a serious rethinking of the use of deadly force in the face of non-compliance. Surely there are better ways to protect the community and guard the precious value of human life.

More arresting is Marx’s comment that history repeats “the first time as tragedy, the second as farce.” Today the farce being played out in the United States is plain for all who care to witness it. The historic tragedy that the farce obscures is harder to discern, and portends the resurgence of...

I was at the movie theater, one of the ones that lets you take a glass of wine in with you. Of course, they are plastic. They are not stupid; no one wants breakage in the theater. It was great! And it got me thinking: you know, we don’t want breakage anywhere, actually. It’s not okay in the...

The justice system is not accustomed to being told “no.” And why should it be? Ninety percent of felony cases never actually make it in front of a judge or jury. This is one reason why Browder’s case was so unique; he refused to take a plea deal. And so the system destroyed him.
