Links to Favorite Libertarian Web Sites
Advocates for Self-Government
This is one of the best sites for libertarian education. It includes The World’s Smallest Political Quiz, “Short Answers to Tough Questions” and you can sign up to receive the Liberator Online, a bi-weekly email magazine with a circulation of over 65,000.
The Libertarianism.com website is designed to help you quickly and easily get a basic understanding of what libertarianism and the fast-growing libertarian movement is all about.
Wikipedia, an online encyclopedia that anyone can edit, has a good series of articles on libertarian ideas, including variants within the philosophy and how it compares to other political philosophies.
This is perhaps the best non-"mainstream media" website for news and op-eds from a limited-government perspective. It provides a daily-changing lineup of articles by some of the foremost libertarian writers, as well as interesting pieces that you definitely will not find at the Associated Press.
Foundation for Economic Education
FEE was founded in 1946 to study and advance the "first principles" of freedom: the sanctity of private property, individual liberty, the rule of law, the free market, and the moral superiority of individual choice and responsibility over coercion. They publish “The Freeman,” a monthly magazine worth subscribing to.
The Ludwig von Mises Institute
The Institute, which has an impressive research website, is the research and educational center for the Austrian School of economics, emphasizing classical liberalism and libertarian political theory. It is named for the one of the most notable economists and social philosophers of the twentieth century.
Founded in 1968, Reason is a non-profit organization that promotes individual liberty, free markets, and the rule of law. The Reason Foundation publishes the critically-acclaimed monthly print magazine, “Reason.”
The Cato Institute
The Cato Institute is a non-profit public policy research foundation headquartered in Washington, D.C. It is named for Cato's Letters, a series of libertarian pamphlets that helped lay the philosophical foundation for the American Revolution.
This is the official site of the Libertarian Party, the third-largest political party in the United States. Libertarians (with a capital “L”) are members of the Libertarian Party, as opposed to libertarians (with a small “l”) who simply espouse libertarian ideas.
Libertarian Party of Iowa
This is the site for the Iowa branch of the Libertarian Party. They are pretty small and not very active, but they did win a legal case, with the ICLU and the Green Party, to allow Iowa residents to register as third-party members (Iowa was one of only two states that restricted party registration to the two major parties).
Campaign for Liberty
This is where Ron Paul continues his 30 + years of effort to promote and defend the great American principles of individual liberty, constitutional government, sound money, free markets, and a noninterventionist foreign policy, by means of educational and political activity.
The Free State Project
The Free State Project is a fascinating attempt to create a libertarian society by convincing 20,000 pro-liberty activists to move to New Hampshire.
