Best Libertarian/Classical Liberal Group Academic Blog

Best Libertarian/Classical Liberal Individual Academic Blog

Cast your votes in the comments section of this blog post. You can vote one time in each of the categories (for a total of four votes). If you wish, you can vote for the same blog if it is listed in more than one category. If a blog in any category does not receive a majority of votes cast, the winner will be determined by a runoff.

Write-in votes will be accepted in the first round of voting.

The majority of blog members must be either currently enrolled students or have experience as professors or instructors at universities, colleges, and high schools, or as professional staff at educational, research and public policy institutes and programs. The content of the blog should be generally supportive of free markets, civil liberties, and individual rights. The first round of the voting will close on December 31 and the results (and details of possible run-offs) will be announced shortly thereafter.

Chris Matthew Sciabarra - 12/16/2005

I hate these polls... because I like so many aspects of the different blogs listed... arrrrrgh (and point well taken, Aeon! :) )

So, I have to approach it this way--If I had a gun to my head ...

Best Libertarian/Classical Liberal Group Academic Blog: Mises Economics Blog

Best Libertarian/Classical Liberal Individual Academic Blog: Austro-Athenian Empire

Best New Libertarian/Classical Liberal Group Academic Blog: Szasz Blog

Best New Libertarian/Classical Liberal Individual Academic Blog: Theory & Practice (IT'S A LANDSLIDE!!!)


Roderick T. Long - 12/15/2005

That's okay, I'm planning to win our next poll, which will be for best libertarian person.


Aeon J. Skoble - 12/15/2005

Group: Volokh Conspiracy
Individual: Knowledge Problem (Note to Chris and Rod: you guys rock, but it seemed too conflict-of-interest-y. Also, you guys typically cross-post here. So it's KP.)
New Group: Cafe Hayek
New Individual: Theory and Practice


Roderick T. Long - 12/15/2005

Check out who&146;s ahead as of mid-December:

Roderick T. Long - 12/15/2005

Hey, I haven't voted in this thing yet.

Best group: Mises Blog.
Best individual: Rad Geek.


Roderick T. Long - 12/15/2005

Was this intended as a write-in vote in the category of "group blog" or in the category of "new group blog"? (It seems eligible for either as far as I can tell.)


Roderick T. Long - 12/15/2005

Hmm, I just noticed -- Rad Geek is eligible in the "individual blog" category, but not, I think, in the "new individual blog" category. (The rules say "new" means less than a year old.) Sergio, which category did you intend?

Chris Hibbert - 12/4/2005

I read Marginal Revolution, Agoraphilia, and Catallarchy regularly.
Of these, Marginal Revolution is definitely the best and most
consistent. Thanks for running the poll.


Blake Nathan Abrash - 12/3/2005

I'm hereby casting my vote for Mises Economic blog for best group blog and Austro-Athenian Empire for best individual blog.

Volokh Conspiracy


Nigel Kearney - 12/1/2005

Volokh. No strong opinion on the other categories.


Kevin Carson - 12/1/2005

For best individual academic blog, I pick Ken Gregg's CLASSical Liberalism (although some of his competition comes mighty close). He regularly posts what would be a damned fine Wikipedia article on some major libertarian thinker. Ought to consider putting out a collection of those profiles in hard copy sometime.

Eric W Cowperthwaite - 11/30/2005

There's no categories for non-academics? Too bad, there's a plethora of non-academic libertarian and classic liberal blogs out there.

You're right. That's what I meant. Been one of those days.


Roderick T. Long - 11/30/2005

> that it isn't a desrving choice,
> but again, just an observation

Ah, but write-ins are allowed ....


Roderick T. Long - 11/30/2005

David means "it should only be individual." Or so I conjecture. :-)


David T. Beito - 11/30/2005

This has been corrected. It should only be group.

Chris G Berez - 11/20/2005

I want to vote Positive Liberty for Best New Libertarian/Classical Liberal Group Academic Blog as well as Best Libertarian/Classical Liberal Group Academic Blog.

Thanks


Jason Kuznicki - 11/20/2005

Group academic blog: Positive Liberty

New group academic blog: Positive Liberty

Individual Academic Blog: The Fly Bottle (But is this really an "academic" blog? Just asking.)

New Individual Academic Blog: Theory & Practice (But however much sense the various classical liberal critiques of democracy may make, surely they are strongest when there is only one choice on the ballot. Not that it isn't a desrving choice, but again, just an observation.)


Jeanine Ring - 11/19/2005

I vote Austro-Athenian Empire for "Best Libertarian/Classical Liberal Individual Academic Blog".

I also humbly submit that these cateogry names are kinda confusing and clunky.

I also find it nighly amusing how much this intellectual beauty contest resembles other line-ups I'm currently participating in while hanging around online.

Ta',

Jeanine

Sergio Alejandro M?ndez - 11/17/2005

In this category my vote goes for Charles Johnson and his blog Rad Geek People´s Daily. On the others I still have doubts.


Charles Johnson - 11/17/2005

Before I abstain from voting on my own category, and vote on the others, I'm a bit curious to know how Theory & Practice can be both a New Libertarian/Classical Liberal Group Academic Blog and a New Libertarian/Classical Liberal Individual Academic Blog. Irfan's a good writer, but I'm not sure he's good enough to transcend the law of identity...
