Two of the Notewriters are featured in this issue: myself and Nick. The Independent Review, by the way, is the leading libertarian academic journal in the world today. If you want to find good, intellectually stimulating arguments about liberty, then TIR is the place to go. Many of the Notewriters have been featured in TIR. Indeed, most of my recruitment of Notewriters has been based off of stuff they’ve written that’s been featured in the journal. Edwin (“Hayekian Spontaneous Order and the International Balance of Power“), Jacques (“If Mexicans and Americans Could Cross the Border Freely“), Vincent (“Social Justice, Public Goods, and Rent Seeking in Narratives“), and Andrei (“From ‘National Socialists’ to ‘Nazi’“) all have beautiful pieces of work in the journal.
Nick’s article is part of an elite mini-symposium on Rawls and his Theory of Justice, while mine slipped in near the end of the journal as a piece on libertarian foreign policy. Both pieces are paywalled, but here is an earlier draft of Nick’s piece (titled “Rescuing Rawls from Rawls”) that you can read, and here is an earlier, readable draft of my piece.
You can buy the entire issue here, and I recommend that you do!

Re confederation: Does not the same human behavior that gives rise to governments also insure that confederations are temporary? Could our arriving socio-economic collapse signify a need for advancing the sophistication of human government?
