InformationLiberationSep 04
An 87-year-old grandmother has been sentenced to prison in Germany for questioning the holocaust.

From DW.com:
A court in Detmold on Friday sentenced Ursula Haverbeck to eight months in jail on charges of sedition. The presiding judge ruled out the possibility of parole and said that Haverbeck had a lack of "any kind of respect" and that she had made more offensive comments in the courtroom.

Haverbeck is expected to appeal against the sentencing. In Germany, anyone who publicly denies, endorses or plays down the extermination

The Long History of French Military Intervention in The Middle East and Africa
Ryan McMakenNov 17
After the 9/11 Attacks, American politicians invented the "they hate us because we're free" explanation of why the US was a target for international terrorism. The slogan has been especially effective among very ignorant sectors of the population who seemed to be under the impression that the United States had been engaged in non-interventionist foreign policy prior to the 9/11 attacks. "Why, we were just minding our own business," came the shocked and exasperated claims of the know-nothings. "T... (more)

The Free Thought ProjectNov 13
Washington DC – It was recently revealed in declassified documents that US and NATO war games nearly sparked a nuclear war with the Soviet Union in 1988.

At the height of the cold war, the US military took part in a massive exercise in Europe called Able Archer that the Soviet Union interpreted as a possible warning sign of an attack. Luckily, the Soviet military decided to hold off on engaging with the western forces that were amassed in an unprecedented display just beyond their

Government Power Was His Mortal Enemy

"Sometimes standing against evil is more important than defeating it," wrote novelist N.D. Wilson. "The greatest heroes stand because it is right to do so, not because they believe they will walk away with their lives. Such selfless courage is a victory in itself."

In the last six of his 49 years of life, brought to an untimely end by tuberculosis, the classical liberal Frenchman Frédéric Bastiat produced an astonishing volume of books and essays in defense of free markets an

A Radical Libertarian in the British Parliament
The FreemanOct 01
When Murray Rothbard was a young student, he wrote under the pen name Aubrey Herbert. I thought he made it up. Not so. There really was a man named Auberon Edward William Molyneux Herbert. He was a member of the British Parliament. He lived from 1838 to 1906. He was a disciple of Herbert Spencer who kept Spencer's youthful idealism long after his mentor lost it. He was the author of "The Right and Wrong of Compulsion by the State."

For 150 years the American Lincoln cult denied what it called a "rumor" that, after a string of devastating battlefield defeats, Abraham Lincoln in 1862 offered command of the U.S. Army to an Italian mercenary named Giuseppe Garibaldi.  The "rumor" was proven to be true, however, when an Italian historian named Arrigo Petacco discovered in an Italian archive a faded letter from Garibaldi to King Victor Emmanuel II of Italy, telling the king of the offer (See Rory Carroll, "Garibaldi Asked by Lin...

As the culture wars intensify in America, let’s consider some of the roots of these contentious conflicts.

With the “Age of Enlightenment” of the 17th and 18th centuries, a “modern” narrative was invented to explain the history of the West, the wider world, and humankind’s place in the universe. This narrative claimed that liberty, democracy, republicanism and religious tolerance could only be achieved through an “Enlightenment project” of secularism taking control of both the pub
