Thoughts, essays, and writings on Liberty. Written by the heirs of Patrick Henry.

“Either 'taxation without consent is robbery,' or it is not. If it is not, then any number of men who choose may … call themselves a government; assume absolute authority over all weaker than themselves [and] plunder them at will…”     Lysander Spooner

What is The Liberty Papers?

by Eric

The goal is to create a repository of writing and thinking on classic liberal thoughts, theories and ideas on government, politics, individual rights and freedoms and more.

We are not Libertarians, or Anarchists, or any other -ism. We are the heirs of Patrick Henry, Thomas Paine, James Madison, Thomas Jefferson and the many other men who dedicated their Lives, their Fortunes and their Sacred Honor to the idea that the rule of law should supercede the rule of man.

  2. What!?! No Bastiat!?!
    Who am I kidding? Perry is here. Of course there will be Bastiat.

    Some Ludwig von Mises would be nice too.
    Milton Friedmand and F.A. Hayek also.

  3. There’s more to come, I promise. The site is barely started at this point. I’m sure that we can count on von Mises, Friedman, Hayek, Hazlitt and many others to show up as this gets rolling.

  4. Not to mention Walter Williams, Thomas Sowell, etc :-)

    Maybe some de Tocqueville, Locke, Hobbes, and the man so righteous he had a beer named after him, Samuel Adams.
