Nathaniel Dwamena


Pretty much everything, the whole training was enlightening and now I will be able to communicate libertarian ideas more or very to people unlike us Libertarians because now I am well versed with the practicality of libertarian ideas. So to me as a young libertarian, I feel all the modules were and are equally important to the advancement of liberty ideas

Emmanuel AcquahGhana

The speakers were effective at communicating. They supported their arguments with data and examples. I also like the fact that one could view the course after the live presentation. This afforded me the opportunity to attend other equally important engagements without a miss of any of the important topics. The books have also been helpful

Learning never stops, even at 3 AM (sleepless in Omaha). The perceptive intellectual content, skilled presentation, and warm host personality easily overcame my early morning insomnia grogginess. The first question sounded like one of mine from the past. If so, I am honored. More importantly, the thoughtful answer broadened my Libertarian horizons. The course is off to a good start. Kudos!

How to Find Freedom
in an Unfree World


Master the Philosophy
& Communicate Effectively



Sharing the Message: What Works and What Doesn’t by Mary J. Ruwart

In our pursuit of advocating liberty, it is crucial to recognize that anger towards proponents of statism, while understandable, can impede the dissemination of our message.

By fostering humility and compassion, the class aims to share the ideals of liberty more effectively, promoting understanding over confrontation and facilitating meaningful conversations that bridge ideological gaps.

Climate Change: A Serious Threat? Are There Libertarian ‘Solutions’? by James Taylor

In some perspectives, the global warming crisis may be questioned if temperatures are not consistently warming as expected. Some argue that climate change initiatives are viewed as a Trojan Horse for socialism, as they fear it serves as a pretext for expanding the Welfare State and misrepresenting capitalist principles.

Can Christians and Libertarians Agree on the ‘Same’ Basis of Liberty? by Michael Severance

Michael Severance discusses how Libertarianism and Christianity share a strong compatibility rooted in their shared value of personal liberty. Encouraging a harmonious relationship between these two ideologies is essential, as they both advocate for limited government intervention and uphold the freedom of choice. In alignment with Lord Acton’s wisdom that “All power tends to corrupt and absolute power corrupts absolutely,” there exists a common thread between these beliefs that calls for increased camaraderie and understanding between Christians and libertarians.

Liberty as an Islamic Value by Imad-ad-Dean Ahmad

One of the Quran’s fundamental legal principles is the unequivocal prohibition of initiating coercion, essentially embodying the non-aggression principle. It explicitly states, “Let there be no compulsion in religion.” However, it’s important to acknowledge that some Muslims may not fully grasp this principle or interpret it in ways that lead to unwarranted impositions on fellow believers. It’s crucial to recognize that liberty is also an inherent Islamic value, reinforcing the importance of promoting both freedom of choice and peaceful coexistence within the faith.

Short Answers to the Tough Questions by Mary J Ruwart

Advocating for liberty is like being a good teacher. To change people’s minds, we need to be ready for their tough questions about different topics like the environment, poverty, or abortion. So, we should write down these questions and find good answers by doing our own research. As Mary Ruwart wisely mentions , “If we want to change the world, we must first be willing to change ourselves.” This means we should be well-prepared and knowledgeable before we try to convince others about liberty.

The Unknown History of Mutual Aid for Social Welfare Among the Poor by David Beito

The concept of a world without a Welfare State might seem unfamiliar to many today, yet it was the reality for Americans and much of the world two centuries ago. During the late 19th and early 20th centuries, central governments had minimal involvement in social welfare, with fraternal societies, churches, and voluntary institutions primarily addressing the needs that the State now theoretically covers. In essence, while we often associate the State with welfare provision, it is worth acknowledging that societies can function without such extensive government involvement in social welfare.

Who Will Build the Roads? by David Beito

American history provides a valuable lesson in the effectiveness of privately-built roads from the country’s early days, resulting in an efficient road system. This historical precedent highlights the feasibility of constructing roads through the private sector, a model that has also proven successful in places like Chile in Latin America. It underscores the potential benefits of private sector involvement in infrastructure development and challenges the conventional notion of government as the sole provider of such services.

Libertarian Controversies: Abortion and Voluntary Slavery by Walter Block

The prospect of rendering abortion obsolete through the ability to transfer a fetus from an unwilling mother to a willing one is on the horizon, supported by advancing scientific capabilities. This promising development stands poised to reshape the discourse surrounding reproductive choices. It underscores the potential for a future where alternative solutions to unplanned pregnancies may supersede the need for abortion.

LGBTQIA+ Communities, State Marriages, and Immigration by Walter Block

Can a World Government Ever Be Libertarian? by Mary J Ruwart

The influence we wield should never be underestimated, for the seeds we sow today may yield significant results in the future. It’s important to recognize that some of our most impactful victories may not involve nurturing the next great champion of liberty but preventing individuals from veering toward ideologies like Karl Marx or Michael Harrington. Our efforts in guiding others can shape the course of their beliefs and, ultimately, the direction of society

How to Share the Libertarian Message with Students by James W. Lark

Throughout history, various ideals of a perfect society have emerged, often deemed utopian and unattainable. Libertarians, too, envision an ideal society, but what sets this vision apart is its attainability through limited government and a steadfast commitment to individual liberty. Unlike some other philosophies, the libertarian aspiration for a better world is rooted in principles that can be realized, offering a tangible path toward the realization of this ideal society.

Responses To Common Objections To Open Migration by Per Bylund & Ken Schoolland

The notion that immigrants steal jobs is refuted by the fact that they often contribute to job creation, and labor competition can indeed drive innovation, productivity, and service improvements, ultimately benefiting society as a whole. Advocating for open borders becomes more compelling when people recognize the potential advantages it holds for fostering prosperity and facilitating the exchange of talent and ideas across borders.

How to Share the Libertarian Message by Telling Stories by Ken Schoolland

Sharing the libertarian message through storytelling is not only impactful but also deeply connective, bridging the intellectual and emotional realms. Stories possess the unique ability to engage both the mind and the heart of the audience, capable of evoking smiles and even tears as individuals grasp the profound principles of liberty. Through narratives, we hold the power to impart these invaluable lessons in a way that resonates on a personal level, fostering a deeper understanding and appreciation for the cause of liberty.

What Would a Libertarian Anarchy Look Like? by Mary J Ruwart

The influence we wield should never be underestimated, for the seeds we sow today may yield significant results in the future. It’s important to recognize that some of our most impactful victories may not involve nurturing the next great champion of liberty but preventing individuals from veering toward ideologies like Karl Marx or Michael Harrington. Our efforts in guiding others can shape the course of their beliefs and, ultimately, the direction of society.

Mary Ruwart, in her exploration of “What is mental and emotional freedom and how do we attain it?” delves into the realm of personal liberty beyond the physical. She discusses the concept of mental and emotional freedom, which involves having control over one’s thoughts, feelings, and reactions, even in the face of external challenges or pressures. Ruwart suggests that attaining mental and emotional freedom requires self-awareness, mindfulness, and the ability to manage one’s emotions and thoughts constructively. She advocates practices such as meditation, emotional intelligence, and self-reflection as ways to achieve this kind of freedom, ultimately leading to a more empowered and fulfilling life.

How can libertarians improve their relations with themselves and the rest of the world? by Jeffrey Tucker

Jeffrey Tucker, in addressing the question of “How can libertarians improve their relations with themselves and the rest of the world?” emphasizes the importance of effective communication and outreach. He suggests that libertarians should work on better articulating their ideas and principles in a relatable and persuasive manner. Building bridges with those who hold differing beliefs through respectful dialogue and finding common ground could be another key aspect of his approach. Additionally, fostering a sense of unity and collaboration within the libertarian community may also be emphasized as a way to present a more cohesive and appealing image to the world. Ultimately, Tucker advocates for a strategy that promotes understanding and cooperation while staying true to libertarian values.

The power of refusal by Robin Koerner

Robin Koerner’s “The Power of Refusal” explores the idea that refusing to comply with unjust or intrusive government policies can be a powerful tool for promoting liberty. In this context, he argues that citizens should exercise their right to dissent when they believe their freedoms are being infringed upon. Koerner advocates for peaceful acts of civil disobedience, non-compliance with unjust laws, or grassroots movements aimed at challenging government overreach. The central message is refusing to go along with policies that violate individual rights can serve as a catalyst for positive change and the preservation of personal liberty.

How our subconscious beliefs influence our ability to accumulate wealth? by Jeff Crawford

Jeff Crawford, in discussing how subconscious beliefs influence our ability to accumulate wealth, explores the idea that our deep-seated beliefs about money and success can shape our financial outcomes.

How to Slash Drug Prices 80% Virtually Overnight by Mary J. Ruwart

The 1962 Kefauver-Harris Amendments, meant to safeguard patients, ironically choked medical progress. The FDA’s iron grip on drug development doubled timescales, ballooned prices 80%, and stifled innovation, costing millions of lives.

Rethinking these Amendments is urgent, for their deadly side effects on lives lost and innovation stifled may outweigh even the worst drug disasters.

Dr. Varner has worked for years on the inside, and combining his insider’s knowledge of the industry and a lifetime of study of free-market economics, he’ll show you where the system is broken, the perverse incentive structures that influence market actors, and multiple realistic policy proposals that can fix the terrible problems. Don’t enter another debate about healthcare unprepared.

How Liberty Enriches the Poor and Discourages Discrimination by Mary J. Ruwart & Ken Schoolland

Picture a bustling marketplace where anyone can trade, innovate, and rise. That’s the promise of free markets: less government, more opportunity. Countries like Hong Kong, thriving proof, show how this unleashes prosperity for all, not just the privileged few. It’s not perfect, but compared to stifled economies controlled by red tape, the choice is clear: let the market work its magic. Unleash the potential in everyone, and watch poverty shrink, not expand. So next time someone wants more government, remember the bustling market. That’s the future we should build, together.
