  • The Human Freedom Index 2015
    REPORT: The Human Freedom Index 2015
  • The Human Freedom Index presents the state of human freedom in the world based on a broad measure that encompasses personal, civil, and economic freedom. Human freedom is a social concept that recognizes the dignity of individuals and is defined here as negative liberty or the absence of coercive constraint. Because freedom is inherently valuable and plays a role in human progress, it is worth measuring carefully. The Human Freedom Index is a resource that can help to more objectively observe relationships between freedom and other social and economic phenomena, as well as the ways in which the various dimensions of freedom interact with one another.

  • BOOK: Peace, Love, & Liberty: War Is Not Inevitable
    Atlas Network & Students for Liberty
    War teaches people to hate. Hate our enemies. Hate our neighbors. Hate those who are different. Peace allows people to love. To change enemies into friends. To replace conflict with cooperation. To replace hatred with love and friendship. What fosters peace? The evidence is in: liberty. What undermines liberty? The evidence for that is in, too: war. The essays in this book offer evidence and arguments for peace. The writers advance peace not merely as a moral ideal or even a desirable goal, but as an eminently practical objective. <Read the rest of the book>



  • BOOK: Why Liberty: Your Life, Your Choices, Your Future
    The book offers, as an alternative to the politics of force, a philosophy of persuasion based on individual liberty and choice. It includes contributions from student leaders such as Alexander McCobin, co-founder of the Students for Liberty, and Olumayowa Okediran, founder of African Liberty Students Organization, as well as highly visible thought leaders including TV personality John Stossel. "We are seeing an explosion among college students committed to the ideas of liberty -- there's no other word to describe it," says Dr. Tom Palmer. "And today's students are not only interested in discussing these ideas, they want to do something about it. That's why this new book so strongly represents the voices of today's student leaders, some very impressive young people who have developed their own vision for freedom, one that transcends old political divides, and who know how to get organized and to do something constructive to make their vision happen."
