Libertarian

On the 100th Anniversary of Women’s Suffrage, Voters Are Once Again Demanding a Voice

On August 8th, 2020 at 12 Noon, protesters are gathering in the first nationwide driving protest in counties all across the nation. The Libertarian Party of Palm Beach County will lead a group of local community members in a COVID-safe demonstration, driving convoy style in a loop from Town Center Mall in Boca Raton to and from Delray Beach. They will decorate their cars parade-style and will “go live” together on their social media channels.

One of Ayn Rand’s lesser-known works of fiction paints a disturbingly familiar picture of cancel culture

Recent legislators, activists, and education reformers have promised to lead us into a new world of equity. No longer will some groups have a different lifestyle from others. No longer will some groups have a different education from others. There will be reform or else, Hawk Newsome warns, “we will burn down this system and replace it.”

For a preview of these glories, we have only to open Ayn Rand’s Anthem. In this dystopian novella, collectivists achieve their ideal by burning cities and books, then implementing central planning. Now everyone is equal: equally poor, equally housed, equally limited in what they can say and do and think.
