21. We believe Liberty is Rising. Do you? Why?

Yes. The Internet. Social Media. The Ron Paul Revolution in the electoral political process. Disclosures of government secrets (WikiLeaks). 3D printing of firearms (Defense Distributed and DefCad). The massive rise of a robust homeschooling movement. Runaway entrepreneurship on an unprecedented level, beating the government outside the political process and in the realm of economics through providing superior alternative services. The lower barriers to entry in terms of startup costs and the massive availability of free or inexpensive market information that has enabled this boom in entrepreneurship. Again, the Internet. The Internet. The Internet. The Internet. The most beautiful and productive and liberating anarchy anyone has ever seen in the form of... The Internet.

[And I forgot to mention, the rising popularity of non-violent parenting and the children's rights movement. This is HUGE. Thank you Stefan Molyneux.]
