About Us

There’s neckbeards, there’s neocons, and then there’s us. The liberty and conservative movements cast a wide net, and we’re here to filter through the madness. We strive to provide clarity on issues typically propagandized, all in good humor. In essence, The Classy Libertarian (a play on classically liberal) represents the best of our movement, run by top activists around the world, coming together behind one united front.

Philosophical Stuff

We believe our minds exist ideological anarchy. Every human is free to choose for themselves what they believe and libertarians are unafraid to admit that conscience is self-restrained. We believe governments exist to protect that liberty and that the highest purpose of all humans is to pursue truth, beauty, and meaning in our lives.

When forcibly constrained, we radiate like hot coals against our oppressors until we are free to expand once more. Yet, “Freedom as an end in itself, freedom to “do what I want,” leaves us with a profound restlessness and despair. Freedom is in its fullest splendor when it is aligned with truth.”

The Classy Libertarian was founded by SFL coordinator William Nardi in December of 2018 as a project of Students For Liberty to further our parent company’s mission to educate, develop and empower the next generation of leaders of liberty. We do this by educating readers with the ideas of liberty which shape our worldviews, developing young writers skills with crafting a narrative using abstract political ideas and empowering them to fight for the magic of life. Nardi’s supervisors at the time recognized the need for the brand and student publication he envisioned and agreed to make it a part of their permanent programming.

(l)ibertarian Political Ideology?

Whereas the Libertarian political party uses an uppercase (L), we represent the ideology with a lowercase (l). Pinning down a particular definition is difficult because we shape our ideologies differently based on our worldviews, yet our particular brand can be defined as this: the belief that government should have as little voluntary control over our lives as possible and that society flourishes when self-restrained.
