In a world of increasing globalization and increasing resistance to it at the same time, via populism, nationalism is beginning to rise. Nationalism, in many ways, is seen as the antidote to globalization, so to speak. Populism has begun to sweep across Europe and the United States recently, as a reaction to what is seen as the “global elites”. While nationalism is a powerful tool in combating the attack on a nation’s sovereignty from global hegemony, it is on balance, a double-edged sword. In certain forms, nationalism turns a given state into a hegemon of its own.

Today marks a historic day in the Libertarian Party and the Liberty movement! While some people counted out the Libertarian Party Mises Caucus after the 2018 national convention, we have been working diligently to grow our influence and our body of work. Spurred on by an endorsement by Ron Paul, and a slew of popular libertarian podcasters joining the LP, the LPMC now boasts over 40 organizers across the country.

A recent article by an unknown guest contributor on the Bilan Report suggested that a libertarian society is unsustainable for various reasons. Among these are the ideas that all personal freedom leads to libertinism, individualism is incompatible with the NAP (non-aggression principle), and the supposed libertarian assumption that all governance is bad. The author makes many misconceptions about libertarianism in their article. In response, this piece attempts to set the record straight on libertarian philosophy.
