The next few days, I will be expending most of my posting energy on what is turning out to be a very long essay on several themes that I have had to face or been asked to answer regarding political theory. I was originally going to make it an essay about the inherent conflict between “the Civil Magistrate” and “the State.” And I realized that this needs to take place in the context of a larger setting. Given its length, I may end up making it an Amazon ebook, but it will be free. The outline or section titles are as follows:
TITLE: Libertarianism, Civil Magistrates, and the State.
i. Introduction: The Need for Civil Order
ii. What Libertarianism Is
ii. Christian Foundations of Libertarianism
iv. Libertarianism as Propertarianism
v. On Conflict, Justice, and Civil Magistrates
vi. The State and its War on the Civil Magistrate
vii. Whether we Ought to Oppose the State
The reason for this announcement is to explain why I won’t be posting much until it is done, which won’t be long.
