The Philosophical Basis of the Conflict Between Liberty and Statism

by Donald W. Miller, Jr., MD

Americans are fighting a culture war against statism. Our country, founded as a limited constitutional government that derives its "just powers from the consent of the governed," is under attack by people who seek to transform it into a totalitarian state. There is a philosophical basis for this conflict, which is worth examining. It can be helpful to the defenders of liberty and freedom that are fighting this war.

In God We Trust, Do We?

by Dr. Gregory J. Brannon

Our founders most definitely prescribed to the motto, “In God We Trust”. They acted upon this belief to establish our country. Yet, today, the majority of Americans only take up the spirit of this motto in times of crisis. I believe at our core, we know that we are obligated to our Creator in whose image we are made. 

Hitler's Cross

by Erwin W. Lutzer

When Hitler was ruling Europe, where was the church of Christ? “Deine Reich komme,” Hitler prayed publicly: “Thy Kingdom come.” But to whose kingdom was he referring? When Germany truly needed a savior, Adolf Hitler falsely assumed the role. He directed his countryman to a cross, but he bent and hammered the true cross into a powerless substitute: a swastika. And many Christians followed him there.

Conceived In Liberty

by Murray N. Rothbard

For anyone who thinks of Murray Rothbard as only an economic theorist or political thinker, this giant book is something of a surprise. It is probably his least known treatise. It offers a complete history of the Colonial period of American history, a period lost to students today, who are led to believe American history begins with the US Constitution.

Progressivism: A Primer On The Idea Destroying America

by James Ostrowski

America is dying from an idea she only dimly understands, so-called "progressivism."  So, Jim Ostrowski, drawing on 45 years in politics, law and the Liberty Movement, deconstructs and demolishes the idea that has dominated American life for longer than any of us has been alive.  He lays the hidden premises of progressivism bare for all to see and then shows how they have led to the destructive policies that are dragging America down.
