Happy New Year 2024

Happy New Year 2024

Another planetary sojourn around the sun has ended and another commences. Plus ca change, plus ca le meme chose as the French say. But who cares?

Being libertarian has always been hard and seems to get harder as we go. Everyone loves freedom until it costs them their free stuff, then suddenly the teat and heel of the state appear more attractive to Mr and Mrs Normie.

The last year has seen members come and members go but the core membership remains steady and the party and …

Lion of Liberty 2022

Lion of Liberty 2022

Jonathan Rainey of Dumbarton was presented with our Lion of Liberty award for 2022 at our AGM.

Jonathan is a young enthusiastic and outspoken activist who has stood in several elections in the Dumbarton area both in the council wards and parliamentary constituency.

On all occasions he puts in an amazing and almost inhuman amount of effort and his leafletting work load is almost legendary. He narrowly missed out on the award last year. Great job and certainly well deserved on this occasion.

He is also a contributor …

Why People Don’t Trust Pfizer’s Covid Vaccine.

Michael Shermer, a famous skeptic, was forced to admit that one of the reasons is that some of them are true. In his research he found that the fact that some conspiracy theories are real feeds people’s suspicion and makes them susceptible to the belief in others that are far less credible.

We are increasingly herded into taking a hard line on issues which are nuanced. One example of this is an apparent increase in two camps: some people are entirely …

The Real Pandemic

The Real Pandemic

For many months now a pandemic has been sweeping the western world. A disease that is a threat to health, our livelihoods and our very way of life. No, not covid-19, but a far more dangerous virus, that has infected the minds of government politicians all over the world: authoritarianism.

Symptoms include, but are not limited to, feelings of distrust and contempt for the public; brazen disregard for the rights of autonomous human beings; and the perverse delusion that governments are entitled to control our lives.

It …
