The Top 100 Libertarian Websites, Blogs, and Podcasts

1. - Libertarians have understood for decades now that the primary source of the government's power, even more than the sheer titanic force of its overwhelming firepower, is its coercive monopolization and manipulation of the money supply. Long have libertarians let loose the chant, "End The Fed! End The Fed!" Here we have a means of direct action that no political force can ever nullify. Free market, private currency. Open source, transparent, decentralized, peer-to-peer, anonymous, cryptographically secure, and deflationary. The end of the imperialist Washington military monetary hegemony is nigh, and libertarians are getting wealthy off of absolutely knee-capping the federal government.

2. Jordan B. Peterson - "Why don't you make yourself into an individual and get the hell away from the ideology?" -Jordan Peterson (CBC News Interview 1/28/18) Jordan Peterson is the practicing clinical psychiatrist and philosophy lecturer from Toronto University who became famous worldwide in 2017 for his free speech advocacy in Canada. Whether or not he would claim the term "libertarian" to describe himself, his elevation of the individual above collectivism exemplifies libertarian ideals to the highest degree, and with utmost sophistication and erudition. His YouTube channel is highly recommended, especially the deep tracks.

3. WikiLeaks - Who has done more relevant journalism in the 21st Century, or perhaps even in the last hundred years, than WikiLeaks? Holding governments to account, putting into practice a radical transparency ethos when it comes to the world's most elite and powerful– WikiLeaks has put governments on notice: Your secrets aren't safe. You cannot hide malfeasance and nefarious activities in the darkness away from the public eye, carefully shrouded in sanitized network television programming. The Internet is here now, and people are using it to watch you back. Before WikiLeaks, libertarians were paranoid that the government was watching them. Now because of WikiLeaks, governments are paranoid that libertarians are watching them.

4. Reason Magazine - Libertarianism's news magazine in Washington DC. It was a monthly print magazine "of free minds and free markets" starting in 1970. During the 1970s and 80s, the magazine's contributors included Ayn Rand, Milton Friedman, Murray Rothbard, Thomas Szasz and Thomas Sowell. The magazine has a circulation of around 50,000 and was named one of the 50 best magazines in 2003 and 2004 by the Chicago Tribune. The online version was founded by Virginia Postrel in 1995, and updates daily with several articles covering news, politics, and libertarianism.

5. The Ludwig von Mises Institute - The Mises Institute in Auburn, Alabama promotes teaching and research in the Austrian school of economics, and individual freedom, honest history, and international peace, in the tradition of Ludwig von Mises and Murray N. Rothbard. The Mises Institute was founded in 1982 by Llewellyn H. Rockwell, Jr., Burton Blumert, and Murray Rothbard. Additional backing for its founding came from Mises's wife, Margit von Mises, Henry Hazlitt, Lawrence Fertig, and Nobel Economics Laureate Friedrich Hayek. The Austrian School of economics espoused by the institute is formidable in its explanatory power regarding the historical boom and bust cycles that have characterized modern, central banking economies.

6. The Cato Institute - Ever the enlightened scholars of Washington public policy analysis, Cato's researchers are responsible for a prolific output of empirical evidence in favor of individual liberty, limited government, free markets, and peace. Hard lefties act like Cato is some right wing think tank, but they opposed the Iraq War, support drug legalization, and were pro gay marriage before Obama was, and they wield both the philosophical rigor and the factual evidence to back it up.
