Elections within a two party system bring a problem to the front burner.  This video discusses this issue.  What should Libertarians do at election time? http://youtu.be/itrsnJo4amE

When they look back and ask which think tank was talking about crypto first, they'll see the Adam Smith Institute.

One of our members wrote this a while ago on the erosion of civil liberties in the UK. (He's Austrian and pretty horrified.)
Mark Feldner attacks the continuing encroachment of civil liberties in Britain and worries about the lack of a public debate.

Bryan Caplan discusses whether it's worth moderating our rhetoric about open borders to convince more people. I agree with him that it isn't – you give up integrity without any promise of a return.

We've got a fun lineup at our Liberty Lectures, next October 19th:

Chandran Kukathas (LSE) - 'Liberty and Multiculturalism'

Dr Adam Martin (KCL) -'The Political Economy of a Basic Income'

Jamie Whyte (ASI Fellow) - 'Evidence-Based Policy or Policy-Based Evidence?'

Theodore Dalrymple (TBC) - 'Culture as a Cause of Poverty' 

These are usually student-only, but we've opened them up to non-students as well. Tell your friends!
