Although politics in the United States are largely determined by the roles of solely Republicans and Democrats, third parties exist throughout the country, and are trying to take foot in the decisions made for the future. In the Pioneer Valley of Western Massachusetts, Libertarians, Green Rainbow Party, and Independents are popular amongst third party supporters, and help define what they believe to be the best course for their country. Supporters of Libertarian movements can differ greatly in their beliefs, with the core of their values being in limited control of the state. Many believe in the legalization of marijuana and/or all drugs, and that a person’s life should be left up to their own choosing. The party has been known to be described colloquially as “economically conservative, socially liberal.” The Green Rainbow Party is towards on the opposite side of the spectrum, with a more overall liberal viewpoints. Along with many other beliefs, they stand for social and economic equality, and many fear greatly for the climate change the world is undergoing. And finally, represented in this are a handful of Independents. These citizens are not siding with one political stance or the other, and tend to look solely at the values of a politician. While not exactly a political party of their own in the sense that they have no singular shared belief system, Independents play an important role in the change from the two-party political system the United States faces today. Although their beliefs can differ greatly, from anti-state to universal health care, from anti-gun to pro-gun, they all agree on one thing; that this country needs to be more run by a system with more than two choices, and that values matter more than a mainstream political stance.+ More details

It follows three members of the Free State Project -- ordinary citizens attempting to reclaim a voice against a government which they believe shares neither their priorities nor their interests. Often considered radicals in their hometowns, they have begun a mass migration to 21st Century New Hampshire. The film presents a nation-trekking examination of a high-minded but ultimately practical group of people and their beliefs. Libertopia is a microscopic view of a growing, 13,000-person strong movement with three of its sojourners as the lens.+ More details
peaker: David Kelley, founder of The Atlas Society, a non-profit that researches and promotes the Objectivist philosophy. Ayn Rand and Friedrich Hayek were notable 20th century advocates of capitalism. They were two of the most important theorists of the free society and defenders of the free society. Both of them based their political views, in part, on theories in epistemology. David Kelley discusses the radical difference in their views on a core epistemological issue, the nature of abstractions. Rand held that we form abstractions from the observation of particular, concrete things. Hayek held the opposite view that abstractions are primary; some are innate, some acquired from our cultural environment, but neither can be independently supported by observation of concretes. Kelley shows why Hayek's view is both false and inconsistent with a fully individualist moral and political theory.+ More details
From Bob Dylan to the Dixie Chicks, contemporary American folk music has always been inseparably intertwined with politics. In the 60’s and 70’s the airwaves were filled with anthems about peace, equality and social justice, but today there is a new breed of folk-rock singer that has embraced the far-right of the political spectrum. At the forefront of this movement is Johnny Freedom, a conservative libertarian who has gained notoriety for his controversial lyrics.+ More details
The Republican defeat in the 2012 elections was in part due to the GOP’s failure to offer consistent pro-freedom policies. But that party is a coalition of libertarian-minded constitutionalists, social conservatives, and status-quo oriented neo-conservatives. These factions are locked in a civil war over fundamental issues: Should the party focus on rolling back the welfare state or simply make it operate more effectively? Should they push a social agenda that limits liberty? And what, exactly, is possible in politics anyway? Can the GOP be reformed? Does the Libertarian Party offer a viable alternative? And do the Democrats offer any hope for liberty? In this webinar, recorded March 25, 2013, TAS Director of Advocacy Edward Hudgins diagnoses the cultural ills of the Republican Party. This webinar recording features audio with an online slide show. After a roughly 30-minute presentation, Hudgins takes questions from the audience. 70-odd minutes total.+ More details
