Libertarianism and the Need For Compassion

A few weeks ago, Peter Moskos asked the folks at The Agitator to explain a few things about libertarianism and the need for compassion. Now, in a fit of shameless self-promotion, I’d like to link to my three part answer at Nobody’s Business:

Taken together, these form a sort of introduction to libertarianism for those who believe in the social safety net.


I think I have an idea how Jewish kids feel at Christmas time: Lots of people in the libertarian blogosphere are really excited about the new Atlas Shrugged movie, but I just can’t bring myself to care. If you care why I don’t care, and I’m not saying you should, you can read all about it in my latest post at the new Nobody’s Business blog.

In Which I Slap Around the Fairfax County Police a Bit More

My latest post at When Falls the Coliseum takes on the issue of why the police in Fairfax County, Virginia, should be more forthcoming about how and why one of their officers shot and killed an unarmed man.

Jennifer tells me I need to work on my self-promotion skills, so I’ll just say that I think this is one of my more rantastic pieces. I almost sound like I’m accusing the Fairfax County police department of operating a death squad. You really should check it out.

When Falls the Coliseum

When Falls the Coliseum is a way-cool group blog run by Scott Stein. I know its cool because (1) an earlier version of the site had posts and comments just like a blog even though it launched in 1999 and had to be administered by hand because nobody had written blogging software yet, (2) Nick Gillespie likes it, and (3) I’m now one of the contributors to it.

My first piece is up. It’s about why government spending is worse for the economy than taxing.
