The Art of Liberty Foundation is a start-up public policy organization focused on spreading voluntaryist/libertarian ideas through effective media tailored to visual learners, busy people, and short attention spans. The foundation produces books, articles, podcasts, memes, videos, infographics, and monographs that explain the basics of voluntaryism and libertarianism while exposing the illegitimacy, illogic, and immorality of government in addition to its criminality and corruption. The Foundation is also focused on developing and testing viral and uncensorable methods of widely distributing voluntaryist/libertarian solutions and evidence of government and media criminality through the hand-to-hand distribution of low-cost “picture books”, data DVDs and USB flash drives. Finally, the foundation is interested in researching strategies for effectively exposing and transitioning from organized crime/governmental control to real freedom and voluntary free market solutions including libertarian intentional communities, political secession, the transition of non-redistributive government services to private schools, protection companies, arbitration providers, private restitution-vs.retribution-based prisons and insurance-supported private fire brigades, technologies that promote digital liberty, free markets, private encrypted communications, anonymous digital cash and free market monetary competition.
We are currently raising funds to accelerate these efforts.
Our Current Projects and Programs
Start-Up Public Policy Organization
The Art of Liberty Foundation is looking to accelerate its growth as a startup public policy organization focused on exposing the illegitimacy and criminality of “government” from a principled voluntaryist libertarian perspective with scholarly research and effective, censorship-resistant dissemination of evidence. We relocated the foundation to New Hampshire and plan on focusing at least 50% of our efforts in the state with outreach and educational activities and research into peaceful transition strategies from legitimate non-redistributive public services to free-market schools, private protection companies, and insurance-agency supported fire brigades.
The THICKREDLINE Project
The THICKREDLINE Project – #THICKREDLINE – Our effort to support Sheriffs, chiefs, Deputies and officers to say: NO! to politicians and peacefully collectively refuse to enforce victimless crimes supported by the community. Art of Liberty Foundation principals co-founded the organization and board member Howard Lichtman was the principal author of the THICKREDLINE Handbook for REDLINING your agency.
The Pre-State Project
The Free State Project is an effort by voluntaryist and libertarian-leaning freedom activists to move to a single State,
New Hampshire, with a history of liberty and a population low-enough where migration or concentration of freedom-activists could effect real change. The Pre-State Project is our effort to accelerate the objectives of the Free State Project by exposing organized crime’s control system and offering the voluntaryist alternative of real freedom, non-violence, tolerance, and peace. The goal of the project is to convert 25,000 libertarian-leaning among existing New Hampshire residents to voluntaryism, real freedom and activism by exposing the control system of Statism and government criminality through mass distribution of physical books, Liberator flash drives, and a TBD documentary in DVD to get around the censorship of the media and the DARPA Internet. The campaign would also host town hall meetings across the state with informative speakers and an introduction to the freedom oriented social and political networks in the state.
