Center For Individualism encourages the submission of articles for publication on our platform. We are dedicated to exploring possibilities for a future society based on self-reliance, individual initiative, entrepreneurship and institutional innovation.
Commentaries, explanations and exegeses of classic liberal texts and ideas.
We call it “classic content made simple”, especially classic liberal and Austrian Economics content. Our writers have commented on works by F.A. Hayek, Ludwig von Mises, Carl Menger, Adam Smith, Mark Skousen, Deirdre McCloskey, and several more. We are bringing classic ideas of freedom and free markets to a broad audience.
Individualism, Innovation and Entrepreneurship.
We encourage communication of ways in which the individual can make good decisions, make strong contributions and live a meaningful life. We welcome ways in which entrepreneurship can be explained and encouraged as a creative, enjoyable and, above all, moral task. We cheer bottom-up innovation and new thinking about business, life and institutions.
Technology’s Role In Social Order.
We believe that technology, invented and developed and perfected by the individuals who conceive it and use it, encourages individuals by augmenting them with new capacity, connecting them with vast amounts of knowledge, and interconnecting them with people all over the world. We have referred to the technologies of spontaneous order. We encourage explanations and explorations of the positive role of technology in advancing beneficent social order.
Freedom And Liberty
We aim to uphold positive ideas about individual economic and political freedom, and we like to support Liberty, and will welcome articles in this vein.
Relating News Cycle Events to Classic Principles.
We have written about the current President’s deregulation activities as an illustration of how leaders can make positive change; about the current state of education; and about changes in music distribution as indications of the liberating effects of technology. We are not a current affairs or news site, but if writers can make a link between today’s headlines and classical principles, we like to use the opportunity to make a lasting point.
