"So what about Ulbricht? He will most likely die behind bars, an old and enfeebled man. How will posterity remember him? Will he be considered a martyr or a fool? It’s hard to say.

But one thing is clear: He was an innovator and an entrepreneur in a space that most fear to tread."
The man will die behind bars, but his idea lives on in the wild world of the Web.

"When we refuse to take responsibility for the rudeness we see around us, and when we refer every single instance of less than ideal behavior to an outside authority armed with guns and clubs and the full power of the state, of course they’re going to take us up on it."
When we upgrade every instance of common rudeness into a criminal offense, we shouldn't be surprised at the outcome.

The private sector isn't just more efficient than government — it's also much more flexible in its ability to bend the rules and adapt to different situations.
When something is moved from the private, voluntary sphere to the public, coercive sphere, debates and division arise where none previously existed.

Nebraska recently abolished the use of the death penalty — a notoriously expensive, ineffective, and inefficient policy.
Other states should follow Nebraska's lead and abolish the expensive, ineffective, and dangerous policy that puts life and death in government's hands.

"President Obama said the Baltimore riots showed the need for new 'massive investments in urban communities.' What Baltimore needs is an investment in new thinking."
Trusting federal housing subsidies to help save the city is the ultimate triumph of hope over experience.

Here are 5 reasons why Californians can't stop moving to the Lone Star state.
Economic freedom -- and the jobs, affordability, and benefits that come with it -- is drawing Golden Staters to Texas.

So essentially, Democratic policies have made California an unbearable place to live and now Californians are flocking to conservative Texas.

So-called "microagressions" might be making a mountain out of a molehill, but they're also proof of how much better our world is getting everyday.
A recurring theme of recent human history is that the less of something bad we see in the world around us, the more outrage we generate about the remaining bits.

"Unions want to give workers and business the option — the freedom! — to prioritize what’s important to them and negotiate their own pay! Isn’t that nice."
Unions want to "give workers the freedom" to negotiate their own pay ?-- but only if those workers are paying union dues.

Many Californians are ditching their state in favor of Texas' much more habitable economic climate.
Economic freedom -- and the jobs, affordability, and benefits that come with it -- is drawing Golden Staters to Texas.

Story
Introduction
The Foundation for Economic Education (FEE), one of the oldest free-market organizations in the United States, was founded in 1946 by Leonard E. Read to study and advance the freedom philosophy. FEE’s mission is to offer the most consistent case for the “first principles” of freedom: the sanctity of private property, individual liberty, the rule of law, the free market, and the moral superiority of individual choice and responsibility over coercion.
