Archipelagos of Educational Chaos

The Journal of Libertarian Studies

The defense of government schooling, like government itself, is based on fallacies. In this article, I directly refute many of the main arguments for government schooling. Using argumentation ethics, all conceivable arguments are refuted, thereby eliminating any valid reason for its continuance.

What is the Mises Institute?

The Mises Institute is a non-profit organization that exists to promote teaching and research in the Austrian School of economics, individual freedom, honest history, and international peace, in the tradition of Ludwig von Mises and Murray N. Rothbard. 

Non-political, non-partisan, and non-PC, we advocate a radical shift in the intellectual climate, away from statism and toward a private property order. We believe that our foundational ideas are of permanent value, and oppose all efforts at compromise, sellout, and amalgamation of these ideas with fashionable political, cultural, and social doctrines inimical to their spirit.
