  • ‘One Man’s Terrorist,’ A Film by David Kirk West

    While on Facebook recently, I stumbled upon a link to a movie that is being released in parts that was made by veteran and libertarian activist David West.

  • My One-on-One Interview with John Stossel

    On November 10th, Fordham’s College Republicans invited Fox News Anchor John Stossel to campus for a lecture on capitalism and government regulation.

  • John Stossel with Panel: What do Libertarians Believe?

    John Stossel recently hosted a panel with some great libertarians on what libertarians believe — and sometimes disagree on. It’s a great piece, and although I don’t agree with every idea presented by each panelist, it’s important to recognize that not everyone in the freedom movement agrees on everything. Part one is on immigration, abortion …

  • Be a Humanitarian– Support Sweatshops!

    An ancedotal victory by the student anti-sweatshop movement, as well as the spread of these folks on my campus compels me to tell the truth about the effects of sweatshops.  If we assume that most foreigners–like Americans– are self-interested, rational people, we can also assume that for sweatshop workers, their extremely difficult job is their best possible option. By imposing …
