Advocate Joseph Published in Bitcoin Magazine

Young Voices Advocate Joseph Diedrich was published in Bitcoin Magazine about the dos and don’ts of talking bitcoin with noobs.

If you’re reading this article, there’s a good chance you know a thing or two about bitcoin. You can prognosticate about prices and harangue about hash rates with the best of ‘em. Despite that, you’re still part of a minority, at least according to Bloomberg. Fewer than half of Americans know what bitcoin even is, and those who do have vastly different levels of knowledge. Effective communication will change that. Here are a few guidelines for conversing about bitcoin.

Advocate Rachel Published in Townhall.com

Young Voices Advocate Rachel Burger was published in Townhall.com about how Ferguson is the latest instance of shackled American journalism.

The United States, and its people, need to emphasize the importance of freedom of the press. This country cannot function as a “democracy” if its constituency is ill- or uninformed. Yes, a great deal of the media’s misreporting and click-baiting is its own fault. But let’s make it easier for the press to report on how our government is behaving–because for many, that’s what we’re interested in above all else.

Protests Continue In Missouri Town After Police Shooting Of 18-Yr-Old Man

Editor Casey Published in TheBlaze on Ferguson Protests

Editor Casey Given was published in TheBlaze about how libertarian politicians can use the ongoing situation in Ferguson, Missouri to establish themselves as leaders in police reform.

As Ferguson, Missouri continues to devolve into chaos, Paul Waldman is standing on the sidelines sticking his tongue out at the liberty movement.

“Why aren’t libertarians talking about Ferguson?” the American Prospect editor asks in the Washington Post, pointing to the fact that prominent politicians and pundits like Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.), Rep. Justin Amash (R-Mich.), and John Stossell haven’t said much since last Saturday’sshooting of unarmed teenager Michael Brown.

Editor Cathy’s New York Times Magazine Piece Covered By National Review

The The New York Times Magazine story which quoted Young Voices Editor Cathy Reisenwitz was written up by National Review.

Mr. Draper’s questions about libertarianism are directed toward the question of consistency: Ayn Rand believed that a fetus had no moral stature, but Ron Paul is deeply pro-life, as is his son. Mollie Hemingway has different views on marriage than does Cathy Reisenwitz. Never mind that Barack Obama cannot even manage to agree with Barack Obama on gay marriage, say, or the Export-Import Bank, or foreign policy, or domestic surveillance. Barack Obama was never about ideas, and Rand Paul libertarian-ish-ism is.

Editor Cathy’s New York Times Magazine Piece Covered by Reason

The The New York Times Magazine story which quoted Young Voices Editor Cathy Reisenwitz was written up by Reason magazine.

The so-called cultural issues have traditionally been a safe haven of libertarian concurrence and, as well, a showcase for the movement to demonstrate how it would apply laissez-faire principles to personal freedoms. One of the more pugnacious advocates of this across-the-board approach is Cathy Reisenwitz, a 28-year-old Washington-based journalist who has a tattoo under her right biceps that reads, “I Own Me.” (“What does that mean, ‘I own myself?’ ” David Frum, a former speechwriter for George W. Bush and Republican commentator, sputtered in exasperation when we spoke later. “Can I sell myself? If I can’t, I don’t own myself.”) Reisenwitz, a former staff member at Reason, writes a blog called Sex and the State that, she told me, “thoroughly disassociates culture wars from free markets — I disavow them 100 percent.” When I asked her where she stood on abortion, Reisenwitz replied, “I do not support any legislative restrictions on health care.” She also espoused purity on same-sex marriage, telling me, “If you’re going to say, ‘Government should be out of marriage,’ and you’re creating petitions and submitting bills, awesome. But in the meantime, if government is going to be involved in marriage as an institution, it should be available for everyone.”

Advocate Nick’s City A.M. Article Cited by Cato’s Dan Mitchell

Advocate Nick Zaiac was cited by Cato scholar Dan Mitchell in an article on his blog  International Liberty about private-public partnerships. Here’s part of Nick’s text that he quoted:

In the American island state of Hawaii, residents and business owners gathered together in 2009 to fix a road through a state park that was vital to the area. They completed it entirely for free, with locals donating machinery, materials, and labor. In fact, the project was completed in a shockingly brief eight days. …Private roads have a long and storied history in both Britain and the US. Between 1800 and 1830, private turnpikes made up an astounding 27 per cent of all business incorporations in the US. Britain, between 1750 and 1772, had previously experienced a period of “turnpike mania”, as noted by economic historians Daniel Klein and John Majewski. Put simply, private infrastructure is by no means a new thing. It is simply the slow return to the way many roads were originally built.
