Statism

MARCH 30, 2013

Statism is an ideology that supports the use of the government in order to attain specific ends beyond the defense of rights to property and person. This includes, but is not limited to, the use of the state to sponsor welfare programs, wars of aggression, and implementation of price controls and tariffs. This employment of state power is not in the defense of its citizen and their properties and therefore occurs in opposition to individual liberty.

CURRENT ISSUE

November 2014

It's been 40 years since F. A. Hayek received his Nobel Prize. His insights, particularly on the distribution of knowledge and the impossibility of economic planning, remain hugely important today. In this issue, we look back on the influence of his work. Max Borders and Craig Biddle debate whether liberty must be defended from one absolute foundation, further reflections on Scottish secession, and how technology is already changing our world for the better--including how robots, despite the unease they cause, will only accelerate this process.
