  • Jordan Peterson Video Debate Screening at University of Tulsa

    Tonight I screened the recently gone-viral video of Jordan Peterson, Clinical Psychologist and Professor of Psychology at the University of Toronto, debating Cathy Newman of Channel 4 News. While this debate does not represent two opposing members of political competency, it is an exemplary video to dissect when discussing the topics of free speech, in …

  • Recruitment at the University of Arkansas – Little Rock

    Today in the Arkansas capital the UALR chapter, along with Jason Hammons, hosted our first event. Our goal of the event was to increase YAL’s campus exposure and to spark some interest in some students. The chapter spoke to several students about the importance of limited government and why we need to return to outright …

  • Activism at ASU-HS

    Activism on small campuses is a challenge, but at Arkansas State University – Heber Springs we always have great conversations with students. Today, September 26th, Conner Lindsey, Dylan Platt, and I took to campus to spread our message through mobile “clipboarding.” The ASU-HS students really enjoyed YAL’s message and took all of the pocket Constitutions …

  • University of North Georgia

    This semester our YAL group has enjoyed meeting on Tuesday evenings to really dig into some interesting topics. We have discussed events from media and censorship to occupational licensing and some other topics that allowed our group that already had good base knowledge in the philosophy of liberty to discuss some of the intricacies of …

  • Free Speech with NSU’s YAL chapter

    The YAL Kennesaw State chapter has officially been RSO certified for nearly one month. During this time our unit has grown exponentially. Our first tabling session on October 5th went much better than anyone ever expected! We were able to speak with dozens and dozens of individuals that were curious about the libertarian philosophy. Some …

  • Arguing for Liberty to Kansas City

    For anyone one who knows anything about Missouri, the first  thing they will know is the humility which grasps the individual. Our successes, as a state as well as people, are built upon the hard work of farmers, pioneers, and fluffy mustached satirists (I’m looking at you, Mark Twain). But as of recently, we have …

  • Pokemon Go and Spontaneous Order

    Having trouble finding activities for you and your YAL chapter to do as a group? Need a good recruiting tool to get people at school to join your team? Well now you can catch them all! Unless you’re living under a rock or hate technology, you’ve probably seen your friends go crazy over the Niantic …

  • The Two-Headed Leviathan

    A gigantic monster has taken over our country, a two-headed sovereign that controls our federal, local, and state governments. This two-headed creature, which has one head of a donkey and the other of an elephant, has a monopoly of power in the political economy of these United States. The most simple and well-known fact about …

  • America on Trial: Socrates, Obama, and Why They Are Opposites

    *Disclaimer: If you’ve not read any of Plato’s works, this rebuttal may not make much of any sense. For further reference, see Plato’s Apology, Republic, and my personal favorite, Phaedo. I have to ask Brandon Griefe who recently wrote an opinion piece entitled Obama: A pupil of Socrates a sincere question: Are you serious?! You cannot …
