I am very pleased to announce The Homeschooling and Liberty Summit, which begins February 1st, and continues through the end of the month.

It is an absolute honor to be involved in something of this magnitude, along with so many giants in the liberty and unschooling world. Ron Paul, Peter Gray, Pat Farenga, Pam Laricchia, Tom Woods, Thaddeus Russell, Scott Noelle, Skyler Collins, and the list goes on!

One of my mentors and favorite libertarian theorists, Hans-Hermann Hoppe, has once again gotten it dangerously wrong on libertarianism.

Everyone and their mom likes to posit that humans have rights, and they shan't be violated. Some say the source of these rights are God, or the gods. Others say that our rights were bestowed upon us by nature. Others, by "government" (Oy!). Through my study of this concept and the evolution of where my thinking on it stood, I have decided, for now at least, that "rights" are just liberties.

Here's a conversation I've had over the past week or two regarding jurisdiction. A number of themes are touched on throughout. This conversation began when a friend shared this success story of someone successfully defending themselves from an IRS attack by challenging jurisdiction, covering a six-year span.

The best way to understand the voluntaryist perspective on politics is to realize that there are only two types of laws: 1) those that prohibit crime, and 2) those that prohibit liberties.
