I've long dreamt about a very cool, liberty oriented coffee shop, where I could go, visit, learn, debate, and just hang out, and here it is, in my own home, on my laptop. This "coffee shop" is brand new and is already my favorite place online. But it will be even better when you join in.
You can expect me to teach at Liberty.me. I know a lot about investing and speculating, knowledge I will share in Liberty.me Live events and in our forum discussions. Rick Rule, Legendary Investor
Liberty.Me has become an invaluable resource to me and my growth as a free and liberty-minded individual. I have learned more here through exposure to those more and/or differently involved in the liberty movement, some new and some people I have already known, like Walter Block, Mises, etc. I have also gained a fantastic group of friends and fellow liberty lovers who never cease to amaze and educate me. I spent nearly a decade in the war and was truly saddened when I returned and woke up, but found much of America still asleep and apathetic to everything going on. This platform gives me hope, and a place to voice my opinions, knowledge, and grievances with others and develop those ideas among the community. Jesse Lohse
I'm a believer in freedom. That's why I'm a member of Liberty.me. It's a website started by my friend Jeffrey Tucker to make your life better. It's about innovating, being more productive, and making new friends. The result is a global network totally dedicated to freeing our lives and the world from oligarchy and control by elites. It would be great to see you there. Patrick Byrne, CEO of Overstock.com
Liberty.me has become my favorite social media platform. Every person I have interacted with has been respectful and offered so much advice, by choice! I’ve been able to learn about bitcoin and even connected with other parents who unschool. It truly is the home of everything liberty minded. Mandie Koeckes
I joined Liberty.me about a year ago or so, or maybe less than that. I always liked Jeffrey Tucker’s style and depth, and I had the feeling it was going to be an interesting community of like-minded people, where I could participate and whom I could share views with. Well, actually, Liberty.me has totally exceeded my expectations. Not only do I find it absolutely interesting but I almost ceased using Facebook!
I do feel I’ve already made new true friends at Liberty.me, plus the amount, quality, and depth of the information and knowledge I now have access to, by being a member of Liberty.me is just mind-blowing! I am not exaggerating, it is phenomenal!
The site is very well set up: there are discussions, blogs, articles, groups, news, links, etc.! Plus I can download tons of priceless books and guides. And also the members writing articles are brilliant, as are their articles! It is an ongoing source of priceless information and knowledge!
I am amazed. I’m amazed at the fact that something like Liberty.me has come to exist… and at the incredible speed it is growing! We’re welcoming new members all the time… more and more each day!
It is very pleasing and encouraging to see all this actually happening! Really! I’m so pleased to be a part of Liberty.me!
Let’s continue growing! We will win!
Cheers! Jorge Trucco
We had this guy, Specialist Babwaller, who was always next to me in the chalk on the flight line down at Bragg. He always used to pester me about these “liberty ideas” and about books he was reading that made him think our military service wasn’t all it was cracked up to be while we were getting our chutes and waiting for interminable amounts of time. He said that what we were doing didn’t make the world a safer place at all, but actually made it more dangerous. I didn’t take him too seriously back then, but I always wondered what it would be like to have a community of philosophers and political theorists and economists and writers and artists so that high-minded ideas like that could be debated and scrutinized in a way that led, somehow, to enlightenment. Well, it took a while, but there finally is such a place, and it lives and breathes on the Internet -- Liberty.me. My buddy Babwaller would have been proud to be a member had he survived our infiltration mission in the mid-90s. Luck would have it that I did survive, though, and I guess I'll just have to be proud enough for two that this amazing digital city exists and continues to evolve in inspiring ways.

Liberty.me is a social community with more focus than Facebook, broader than Twitter, good for learning, sharing and expanding your mind. Discussions, live sessions with subject experts, books and more. If you have an open mind it will be an asylum on the Internet. Ken Jons-Un
Compared to Facebook, Liberty.me is kind of like being in the airport and then making your way into the private lounge: You had no idea how mind-numbing CNN was in the background until you were in a quiet spot and could actually *think*. Robert Murphy, PhD
Liberty.me has provided me with the hope and resource I have been looking for to keep me going in liberty thought. It provides the atmosphere and community I need. I'm just speechless. It's like it's a godsend. Zachary Slayback
Liberty.me is the coziest place on the internet. It’s populated with extremely interesting, thoughtful and well mannered people. This city is alive and is constantly expanding and being built by us, its inhabitants, as much as it is by its creators. Ady Sheerer
