My advice to Libertarians…

I’m not a Libertarian, but I understand the basic philosophy as well as the goals you wish to achieve. While I agree with some, as a whole I see Libertarianism as doomed to failure because…

A. Too many Libertarians seem to thrive on alienating Libertarianism’s greatest allies while flirting with its greatest enemies.

B. Too few Libertarians seem to care anything about realistically convincing people that they have a workable idea. Instead they seem to want to simply annoy people and whine when they don’t get attention

C. As with any political philosophy Libertarianism attracts kooks who want to push it to some extreme. Unfortunately Libertarians don’t seem to mind that so many of these kooks have become the face of Libertarianism, in spite of not really representing its core principles very well.

Charity of the Week: The Carlton Fund

http://thecarltonfund.org/

All of the projects supported by The Carlton Fund meet the following criteria:

1. They provide internet resources to groups who either lack access to those resources elsewhere, or the resources cost more than many of these individuals in these groups can afford.

2. The projects are not income generating. Which means any revenue derived from ads or any other monetisation method are insufficient to cover the basic operational expense of the project (site hosting, upkeep, maintenance, etc.)

3. They are free and open to anyone without fees of any kind.
