About the Consortium

Notes On Liberty [is] the most interesting and intelligent libertarian blog on the Internet” – Dr Irfan Khawaja, philosopher (Felician College) and blogger (Policy of Truth)

Notes On Liberty is a blogging consortium dedicated to exploring philosophy, economics, law and public policy, history, and culture.

Founded in 2012, NOL was initially to be a project composed of scholars and activists in the San Francisco-Monterey Bay-Silicon Valley region of California, but quickly grew into something much more cosmopolitan than even that part of the world.

Today, NOL features contributions from economists, historians, political scientists, philosophers, lawyers, sociologists, anthropologists, and activists from around the world. True to its cosmopolitan spirit, NOL has featured thoughts in six different languages: English, French, Spanish, Russian, Portuguese, and Swedish.

We continue to publish thoughts in English, French, Spanish, and Portuguese – the four main languages of the West.

Work by the Notewriters has been featured on the American Conservative’s State of the Union blog, the Library of Economics and Liberty’s EconLog blog, the American Enterprise Institute’s Carpe Diem blog, RealClearHistory, iFeminists.com, the National Review’s Phi Beta Cons blog, Reason‘s Hit & Run blog, RealClearMarkets, and also won the first ever Thorpe-Freeman blog contest put on by Foundation for Economics Education’s flagship publication, the Freeman.

The tagline ‘Spontaneous thoughts on a humble creed’ comes from the insights of FA Hayek, who recognized that order comes from spontaneity below, not scripture from on high, and that liberalism is above all else a humble creed that requires each man to realize his knowledge is but a pittance of how the world actually works.
