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.

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.

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.

Reason magazine is one of the best ways to stretch your brain that I can think of. And if you want to enjoy engaging in intellegent discourse with your kids of 15 plus, this is a GREAT resource. The writings and the topics and questions this nmagazine rsaises removes the barrier of age entirely. It is REASON--just plain common sense smarts

The only way to understand what the right course of action is for our society is to really drill down to the core philosophical principles that should be followed. If freedom and peace are the highest goals of your philosophy, then Reason shows the necessary path to achieving both in the real world. Unfortunately it is easy to lose one's way in the false dichotomy of Red vs. Blue, and Reason does a fantastic job of eviscerating the brickbats, red herrings, and nonsense of both sides while casting a light on the way to true peace, prosperity, and freedom.

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.

Reason has great articles by authors who are traditional Liberals.  There is no other source with the clear logical presentation of the facts related to our current events.  This is essential reading for understanding our world.

Make you think. What is really going on? A different perspective. Forces you to think.

Reason Magazine is what it says: REASON! Thought provoking articles and items that go "outside the box" of "Conservative vs. Liberal" or Republican vs. Democrat. It is overall "Small l" libertarian and treats the reader as intelligent and able to reason out any subject in their own mind. Heavy topics of all aspects of government policy are presented in a way anybody can understand. Often with a humorous edge that honestly makes it fun to read about politics. Articles are well thought out and sources documented. What I found most refreshing is that the magazine is humble and honest about things. If they make a mistake they are quick to make it right. It's a refreshing thing in a world made up for the most of arrogant "political journalists" who tell you "what to think" instead of trusting the reader to weight the evidence provided.

This is really one of a kind that gives a different point of view (Libertarian) on current topics. It also has lots of crazy news items from around the country every month to show how our government gets out of control.

I used to really enjoy Reason Magazine, but somewhere along the line the quality of the articles seriously degraded. If you are looking for a libertarian publication, this is no longer it. Then again, a lot of the libertarian community is no longer the same as it was.

Reason Magazine has phenomenal articles that are not only well-written, but incredibly enlightening and informative. Even if you don't subscribe to the independent political line of thought, the reports on sex slave trade, North Korea, and economics are fascinating. I would recommend this to anyone, but buy the issues individually since they come out every 2 months. Since a subscription is 1.25/month, you end up paying 2.50/issue versus the individual cost of 1.99/issue.
