Articles

Up from Serfdom, by Jacob G. Hornberger, 9 Apr 2010
Response to criticism by David Boaz on "Up From Slavery" to Hornberger's "Liberal Delusions about Freedom"
"Thus, ever since our inception some 20 years ago, The Future of Freedom Foundation has focused not on proposals designed to reform, modify, improve, or reduce the welfare state, regulatory state, and warfare state but instead on raising people's vision to a much higher level, one that focuses on the libertarian principles of a free society and a constitutional republic—e.g., the separation of economy and the state, of health care and the state, and of education and the state; the right to keep and bear arms; the protection of civil liberties; and the restoration of a noninterventionist foreign policy."
