About

This is a group blog providing analysis from a libertarian leaning/classical liberal perspective.  Postlibertarian means we think free markets do the best job allocating resources, but we acknowledge where markets can fail. It means we think republics are a good starting point for government, but we acknowledge that democracy comes with its own set of problems. We like the Non-Aggression Principle, but we also realize that gradualism can accomplish a great deal by working within the institutions we have today. We often disagree with many on the Right and Left, but we also believe differences of opinion should be tolerated, discussed, and debated.

It also means that there are areas outside politics that we’ll be discussing, tangentially related to libertarian ideas, including philosophy, cryptography, prediction markets, rationality, game theory, and the singularity. Bloggers’ backgrounds include software, computer science, engineering, economics, and political science. We tend to focus on American politics because that’s where we mostly live.

Also among the projects here is the Libertarian Web Directory, which is looking to catalog all sorts of libertarian web resources in a central location.
