"Irrational" is a better title. This magazine is for right-wingers who are embarrassed to be called "conservative", and would rather make a transparent attempt to appropriate words/terms that sound more hip, ex. "reason" and "free minds". But remember, reason and free-thinking are not the domain of of conservatives whose only beef with conservatism is that conservatives don't like legal pot. Go sell that happy horse pile somewhere else.
Nevermind the reviews of non readers... I've been reading Reason for the last couple years. I have never found a magazine that makes arguments so well with meaningful interpretation, solid statistics, and asking the right questions. I don't always agree; I have a love/hate thing with Nick Gillespie. There is no defense of one single ideology. This is not for liberals, conservatives, Republicans, or Democrats. This is for people with free minds drawing rational conclusions from well-laid facts and logical arguments.
very good Different from most political reads. Really helps explain the libertarian concept. Not screaming dogma at the reader, simply explains and points out many inconsistencies and inefficiencies of current systems.
Excellent for libertarian news Anyone calling this a "fascist" magazine either 1)hasn't read it or 2)has no idea what fascism is. And there are MANY distinctions between this and conservative viewpoints besides weed (gay marriage, abortion, and civil liberties to name a few). So libertarians and open-minded people, enjoy...and closed-minded people, please come up with some better arguments. Thank you for your time.
Trinity Hampton is a big government idiot Reason is a good libertarian news publication. This Trinity Hampton knows nothing about the ideas of libertarianism. She should read Milton Friedman, Ayn Rand, F. A. Hayek, Adam Smith, and John Locke to understand that libertarianism is right wing when it comes to economic issues, but left wing on personal issues. Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness Forever. Capitalism at its best.
Not Democrat and Not Republican If your tired of listening to the never ending tripe being dished out by the "mainstream" political parties, give yourself a break and read Reason. If you are afraid to have a different point of view then just call people names (fascist) or slander by association (Koch Bros) and slink away. If you want to hear some fresh ideas for social and individual freedom this is the place.
