Great Magazine

I've just recently started buying the magazine, but I've been on reason.com for a while and I find the whole organization to be a great voice in the political arena. Regardless of your views, the Reason writers make good arguments in support of their points.

Lots of assertions, no numbers.

I decided to read articles at random.

First article was about how Global Warming is apparently a hoax. I am not convinced by its arguments in the least, and after the rest of my experience, I'm not motivated to check its facts.

The second article was about how the Department of Education, among many other agencies, should be eliminated. No numbers are cited, no cost savings estimates, no real explanation on how exactly they expected a patchwork of state DoE's to make an education system that competes with every other nation in the world, nor how they expect states to react when all the funding that the DoE gives them for various education initiatives just poofs.

None of that. Just an assertion that it'd be a good idea, states would be fine because they have their own DoE's, and..well, that's it.

Really, really happy I didn't pay for this.

    So far, so good.

    If you have an open mind, this magazine is worth a look. I've just started reading and so far it seems to fit it's description. I believe it is making a principled case for liberty and individual choice. Some people get angry and call that right-wing. If the authors didn't provide good references to back up their points, you could probably make that case. Personally, I think it's speaking directly to the ideas behind our basic freedoms and not to any big party political agenda. That being said, I just started reading so if my opinion changes, I will make sure to update this review.

    Great Libertarian Read

    If you still believe in the two-party system, get ready for a shock. This magazine is not trying to be non-partisan, it's anti-partisan. Ultra-right-wing accusations do not apply when socially liberal.
