The Christmas season is upon us and here at The Liberty Herald we are thankful for the great readership we have had over the past four years. There have been ups and downs, and changing identities, but in the end we are committed to bringing you the very best in Libertarian journalism.
With that we wanted to feature some of Reason’s Ultimate 2020 Libertarian Gift Guide. We selected some of the best items we thought our followers would enjoy and possibly buy for the Libertarian in their life. Take a look!
A Glorious Liberty: Frederick Douglass and the Fight for an Antislavery Constitution, a new book by Reason‘s own Damon Root about the man who, perhaps more than anyone, insisted that the U.S. live up to its founding principles.
Ten Global Trends Every Smart Person Should Know: And Many Others You Will Find Interesting by Reason‘s Ron Bailey and the Cato Institute’s Marian Tupy. It makes a highly compelling case that the world is, in fact, getting better, which, according to the data, will surprise the vast majority of America.
Science Fictions: How Fraud, Bias, Negligence, and Hype Undermine the Search for Truth: “Science, the discipline in which we should find the harshest skepticism, the most pin-point rationality, and the hardest-headed empiricism,” he writes, “has become home to a dizzying array of incompetence, delusion, lies, and self-deception. In the process, the central purpose of science—to find our way ever closer to truth—is being undermined.”
Euphoria is just one emotion you’ll feel when playing this ultra-complex, post-apocalyptic-themed, worker-placement board game from Stonemaier Games.
Between two to six players compete to “build a better dystopia” by collecting resources and artifacts in a Brave New World-like landscape, all while trying to keep their workers’ morale high and their intelligence low (lest they get dissatisfied with their station in this totalitarian future).
For the fashionable libertarian:
I bought one of these Gadsden flag scarves at the Free State Project’s Liberty Forum last February and have had so many people ask where I got it. It’s a really nice weight and texture and has held up well with washing. Plus, it can double as a face covering, with some libertarian flair, in a pinch!
