Ari Armstrong is creating media defending Reason & Rights
26

patrons

People are best able to flourish in a culture that values reason and a political system based on the principle of individual rights. My aim as a writer is to produce articles and books advancing those values.

You can help me publish my work by joining me at Patreon. And, by contributing $5 or more per month, you'll get exclusive access to my weekly Reason & Rights Letter. In the letter I'll discuss important authors and speakers, comment on the issues of the day, and share insights into my books in progress. (Normally the letter will come out every Monday, but the schedule and frequency may vary.) Of course, Patrons who can afford more play a larger role in making my work possible.

A bit about my background: I've covered politics and culture since 1998, writing for the Objective StandardComplete Colorado, and other publications. I've appeared on CNN and various television and radio programs. I'm also the author of Reclaiming Liberalism and Other Essays on Personal and Economic Freedom and Values of Harry Potter: Lessons for Muggles. Now most of my articles appear at AriArmstrong.com.

I joined Patreon to maintain my independence. I need to follow the evidence and reasoning where I judge they lead. Independent funding from many small donors helps me to free up time for this work in a way that doesn't compromise my autonomy.

Writing books is a major part of my efforts. I plan to write more theoretical works on metaethics and the theory of rights as well as books on specific political topics, including libertarian anarchy, abortion, and gun rights. Over the past couple of years I've written tens of thousands of words on moral theory, slowly developing my ideas and working toward a draft.

I also publish articles at AriArmstrong.com on a wide range of topics. One thing that's important to me, and that donor funding helps me achieve, is a web site free from distasteful ads, glaring imagery, distracting pop-up alerts, and the like. Sure, I'll use my site to tastefully promote my books and fundraising efforts. Always I'll strive to respect my readers' time and quality of experience.

I deeply appreciate your help pursuing this work. Unlike many writers, I don't draw a regular paycheck from a university, think-tank, or major publication. Nor do I neatly fit in with any major ideological group; I'm not conservative, Progressive, or libertarian. I'm a liberal of the classical tradition, deeply influenced by such thinkers as Ayn Rand and Ludwig von Mises—but liberals of that sort are a dispersed group. So my path is sometimes lonely.

I'm looking for readers and supporters willing to consider different ideas, challenge popular narratives, and step outside of echo-chambers.

Please join me in this work by becoming a Patreon supporter, at whatever level fits your budget. Thank you.
