Libertarian News’ purpose is to highlight the violence and hypocrisy of coercively funded government and to present logical arguments against it. The basis of these arguments stems from the extensive work of Murray Rothbard and Ludwig von Mises, as well as many other philosophers, economists and historians that favor voluntarism. Libertarian News abhors the initiation of violence in any form, for any purpose, including violence against animals.
