One of the Largest Libertarian Art Sites in the World!

libertarian, 15000 hits, voluntaryism, ancap, artist, art15,000 Hits! Since we started Libertopia Cartoons in December of 2014, we’ve continued to see a lot of growth over the past two and and a half years with the continued mission of being a hub for libertarian artists – as well as always delivering great liberty-themed artwork! We’re excited at how we’ve been able to help share libertarian and voluntaryist ideas through a number of creative ways, often through a visual medium that’s designed to reach out to a variety of audiences. So to celebrate this achievement, we thought we’d take a look at some of the great stuff we’ve been able to accomplish or be a part of over the past year!

Recently Julie and I had a lot of fun appearing on the Actual Anarchy Podcast, where we talked about Ghostbusters from an anarcho-capitalist perspective. We also compared the original movie with the 2016 version. Check it out here!

Our Infographic “When Government Does It” made big waves on social media with likes from Tom Woods and a share from Adam Kokesh. Don’t miss it!

Check out our recent interview with the creator of the Voluntaryist Comic, as well as a great discussion on the free market with the owner of Libertarian Country. Our talk with activist Caryn Ann Harlos was a highlight as well!

We had a lot of fun chatting with Bines online, and featuring his pro-liberty street art at Expressions of Liberty.

Libertopia weighed in on the subject of government supported artwork at the following article: Hey Patreon, Not Every Artist Supports Theft!

And in addition to our growing library of cartoons and infographics, we recently launched the official Libertopia Store with some really awesome libertarian products you won’t find anywhere else! Plus, don’t forget about our 60 page art ebook we released at Libertopia: Collection One!

We’re looking for artwork of any kind – 2D art or 3D illustrations, traditional or digital art, paintings, photos of sculptures, posters, cartoons, text art and more (if you need a little inspiration, feel free to look over some of our own cartoons here at Libertopia!). All skill levels welcome – even people who may not think they’re artists are encouraged to send in a sketch!

See the winners from last year HERE!

So why participate? This is a great opportunity to get a little recognition and appreciation for your talent (as we’ll be sure to promote your entry through social media), and bragging rights as a potential winner in one of the few libertarian art contests out there! Plus, it’s a fun way to network with other libertarian artists – as well as develop some great liberty-themed art to display in your portfolio or through social media.

The details: Please send one entry per applicant – a jpeg under 400K would be excellent. The art must be your work. Any age may contribute! Please send your name, age category (child or adult) e-mail address, web address (if you have an online portfolio), and a brief description of your work (The child category is for kids 13 and under). Please keep artwork clean without profanity, and pertaining to a libertarian/voluntaryist/ancap theme. Please send to silverlake37 (at) outlook (dot) com. (If you would prefer that the entry you send in appear online with an alias or initials, please let us know and we will make sure that happens!)

GreatDayAll art submissions will be exhibited under the “Artist Page” here on Libertopia. The cutoff date for entries will be July 17 (Monday). On July 19 (Wednesday), we’ll announce the first and second place winners in each of the two categories through a blog post (an honorable mention may also be awarded at our discretion). First place winners will receive a PDF copy of our Libertopia Volume 1 libertarian art book (as seen here). We’ll also have special award icons that will be displayed with the winning art on Libertopia, as well as e-mailed to you for use on your portfolio sites. Certificates will also be sent via e-mail! All art will remain on display on Libertopia for as long as this site is up and running. However, all artwork ultimately belongs to the artist – so if you decide you’d like it removed sometime down the road, we can do that.

We’re looking forward to seeing your artwork soon!

Uber, the Free Market and Muh Roads…

Cartoon, libertarian, political cartoon, Uber, Lyft, free market, politicians, statism, politics, crony capitalism

Are there any Uber or Lyft drivers out there? With more and more local governments implementing burdensome regulations, it seems like the temporary free market revolution in individuals using their cars to earn a living may be at an end. Yeah, these politicians always like to blab about safety and the common good, but it seems like the reality of it is that they just want to secure a little influence from political lobbyist organizations and campaign funds from powerful companies (also known as cronyism). And then pat themselves on the back for a job well done. But then again, when you’re dealing with State owned roads, I guess they can ultimately regulate them however they see fit. Muh roads…

Have any thoughts regarding socialism, statism, crony capitalism, uber regulations, government money making schemes or the free market? Leave a comment! Be sure to check out our graphics page for even MORE of our exclusive libertarian / voluntaryist / ancap political cartoons, art and infographics! Plus, don’t miss our great libertarian artist interviews as well!

Libertopia talks Ghostbusters on Actual Anarchy Podcast!

Ghostbusters, libertarian, ancap, voluntaryist, cartoon, who ya gonna call, free market, Statist, Statism, Actual AnarchyThe team at Libertopia (which consists of myself Lewis Liberman, and Julie Wilder), recently had the honor of appearing on Actual Anarchy to talk about the many themes in the Ghostbusters 1984 movie, as well as the more recent 2016 reboot. In this awesome hour long discussion with the hosts of Actual Anarchy, we covered many topics such as taxation, the free market, whether those power packs the Ghostbusters carry around would be a liability in an anarcho-capitalist society, AND if the new 2016 Ghostbusters is really a feminist/progressive/leftist/social justice warrior dream come true. This is a particularly insightful discussion, as we have the perspective of what a libertarian lady thinks about it all.

Plus, we talk a little bit about our own journey as libertarians, as well as thoughts and perceptions on Statism in general. So if you’re curious to know more about who we are, check out the podcast at the following link. Episode 17 – Ghostbusters (you can also find it on itunes and a bunch of other places too).

Also, be sure to check out the Actual Anarchy page and podcast. There’s a TON of great content on their site, which looks at movies and society in general from a Rothbardian / Anarcho-Capitalist perspective. Don’t miss it!

“Liberty Schmiberty”…Does Republican Senator Bob Dixon Voice What’s on the Hearts of Many Public Servants?

Bob Dixon, Missouri, Senator, Liberty, Republican, Meme, Career Politician, Establishment, Statist, Statism
Liberty, schmiberty… I’ve heard enough about people’s liberty being taken away… I am tired of hearing these arguments over and over again, they just don’t hold any water for me.” – Spoken by Republican state Senator Bob Dixon from Missouri recently while defending a Prescription Drug Monitoring Program bill on the floor of the Missouri Senate (as reported by Missouri First in an email bulletin). Dixon, like many so-called “public servants”, has been building a career out of flexing the power of the State over those he claims to work for. Formerly working in the House of Representatives, he also attempted a run for governor. His wikipedia page additionally lists how he “likes the idea of a more limited government”.

Of course, this one senator was honest enough to say what was on his heart – but those politicians who vote to strip away the rights of the people are pretty much saying the same thing. Democrats, Republicans, Neo-Conservatives, Progressives, the Establishment, big “L” Libertarians…whatever. This is a problem with “public servants” throughout America – and perhaps the rest of the world. They say one thing to get elected, and then do another once they get a little taste of seductive power and bloated importance. Sure, government in Missouri and many other states may have started with high aims to secure liberty for the people, but it’s fairly obvious that at this point it’s failing miserably. Liberty, schmiberty.

Neo Con Air

Trump, Make America Great Again, Syria, cartoon, political cartoon, libertarian, Neo-conservatives, Constitution, PeaceWar, what is it good for? Absolutely nothing. Unless you’re a bunch of neo-conservatives and Trump. But oh no, this is all part of the plan to make America great again. Right? Cause there ain’t nothing like bringing Democracy (or life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness) through force of arms. Anyway, while coming up with this cartoon, I couldn’t help but think about how politicians absolutely LOVE talking about how they’re about to do something like raise taxes or bust some heads because…ya know, it’s for the kids.

Movies you might enjoy after looking at this cartoon include Dr. Strangelove, and Con Air. The later pick is just cause it’s a cool flick, while Dr. Strangelove’s Major “King” Kong is a character to watch for if you want to know where a little of my inspiration for this illustration came from.

Thoughts or suggestions on Syria, the Trump phenomenon, conservatives, progressives, the military industrial complex, or establishment media propaganda? Leave a comment! And if you’re the type that might enjoy a little humor over all the lunacy out there, then you’ll definitely want to check out our graphics page for even MORE of our exclusive libertarian political cartoons, art and infographics! Plus, don’t miss our great libertarian artist interviews as well!
