FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Veteran libertarian activist and internet news publisher becomes second C4SS paid staff member.
AUBURN, ALABAMA March 20, 2009 Center for a Stateless Society Prominent libertarian activist and news publisher Thomas Knapp has joined the Center for a Stateless Society as the Centers second paid part-time staff member. In his role as News Analyst beginning April 1st, 2009, Knapp will be producing one or more op-ed pieces per week as well as mentoring volunteer contributing writers.
Knapp has long been associated with the libertarian wing of the Libertarian Party and is the founder of its breakaway ultra-faction, the Boston Tea Party. As well as being a prolific blogger on the side, Knapp brings over a decades experience with online news writing, editing, publishing and team leadership; first for the former Free-Market.Net and later for his own publication, Rational Review. He is author of the e-book Writing the Libertarian Op-Ed, among other works.
C4SS Director Brad Spangler said of the move Knapp was the logical choice for the position. His continuing editorship of Rational Review News Digest immerses him in the news cycle so thoroughly that it can only be likened to a fish in water. This is the man who produces the daily crib notes for an entire eco-system of libertarian online content producers. His wealth of experience means he is uniquely suited to explain to the general public how libertarian principles, consistently applied, reach beyond the inconsistent market liberalism of figures like U.S. Congressman Ron Paul into full-blown market anarchism. Were very pleased to announce Tom is joining the Center.
The mission of the Molinari Institute is to promote understanding of the philosophy of Market Anarchism as a sane, consensual alternative to the hypertrophic violence of the State. The Institute takes its name from Gustave de Molinari (1819-1912), originator of the theory of Market Anarchism. The Center for a Stateless Society is the Molinari Institutes media center.
