"But let me offer you my definition of social justice: I keep what I earn and you keep what you earn. Do you disagree? Well then tell me how much of what I earn belongs to you - and why?" ― Walter Williams
In our May 2023 issue, the Tar Heel takes a look at the flurry of legislative activity that is ongoing in the NC state house right now. We have two great interviews - with Orange County LP Chair Matthew Clements, and with GNRC's Andy Stevens. We have some great opinion pieces on currently pending legislation, a scathing rebuke of the Fayetteville city council by Mike Ross, and a brilliant defense of the second amendment philosophically by Justin Hinckley. Enjoy!

Reflections from an Old Libertarian
Recognizing that humanity has relied on storytelling to pass along history for millennia, each month, an OG North Carolina Libertarian will share stories, platforms, wisdom, inspiration, or ruminations for the benefit of our Tar Heel readers. We stand on the shoulders of giants, and thus see further than others.
Who says Libertarians aren't cultured? A review of a book, new or old, but always somehow relevant to our modern discourse.
