Libertarians and identitarians don’t mix. Also: Refugees and the value of liberty. — FTN DAILY EDITION #124, Politics & Debate
Can’t play with us
Why Milo and Richard Spencer are not the victims here.
Nobody’s rights were violated.
We are having a hypocritical debate about refugees in the West.

Democracy is under attack.
It is fundamental to our modern humanity to be sovereign citizens with a say over our own lives and societies.
Just to reiterate
Liberty is better for you.
People in economically free societies live longer and have healthier lives. They enjoy greater political freedom and can better defend their human rights.
