Promoting Freedom in an Authoritarian nation

Reminder to sign petitions against Lese Majeste laws

It doesn’t matter if it’s about writing justified criticism, mindless slandering, not standing up in the cinema or re-telling truths or rumors…the Lese Majeste law is a tool of oppression and should be revoked. His Majesty the King deserves not only respect for his good work with this nations poor but also the benefit of the doubt that he is as loved and revered as the tourist-pamphlets tells us. This can only be the case if the LM-laws are revoked. Continue reading

A taxi drivers opinion and a Libertarian reflection

Libertarian blog-posts run-downs

Just some recent blog-posts that some might find interesting:

The Libertarian Slant has a post called ‘Obama Lies, Democrats Lie, USA dies‘ outlining his view of Obama’s presidency sofar. Not a rosy picture of hope and change. Perhaps not so balanced but sure entertaining.

Freedom Bunker is on the same train with ‘#748 – $13 Vs Your Federal Tax Bill – Reparations – The $30M Mouse – Destroying The 2nd Amendment – Still On The Wrong Track – Obama Disapproval‘ (Internet radio clip.)

Last and not least, a text by Jeffrey Tucker (editorial vice president of www.Mises.org) that Little Alex in Wonderland has reprinted, entitled ‘IP: It’s a Market Failure Argument‘. It’s a highly interesting read for any true free market proponents.

Blog online – Libertarians in Thailand

We follow the military and the parties throughout the nintiees, the new ‘populist’ authoritarian Thaksin during the beginning of the 21th century, the military coup, the puppet government following and the democrat party continuing the path of the old days…and wonder when Thailand will ever reach a political maturity of its population that allows freedom to be asked for.

Our goal is to critically observe and object to the political establishment in Thailand, promote individual and economical freedom – to promote Libertarianism as the one ideology for a truly free and happy nation
