Last month, I wrote about the departure of LLP Community founder Eric Cowperthwaite from the blogosphere. Well, that time has come, and its time for me to take over the reins of the LLP Community.
This post will serve as a permalink for the community and an introduction for new members, and will be updated as necessary.
1. What Is The Life, Liberty, and Property Community
The LLP Community was formed a little less than a year ago by Eric Cowperthwaite in the wake of the Supreme Court’s infamous decision in Kelo v. City of New London. Back then, Eric stated quite succiently what the community is all about:
To promote the big tent libertarian and classic liberal ideals of life, liberty and property. It doesn?t matter if you are a big ?L? or small ?L? libertarian, anarchist, rational anarchist. We want the big tent of people who believe that individual liberty and inherent rights are more important than the collective.
It?s also a great way to bring traffic to your site. Your activity hits the board on the Community Page and people come look!
Since then, the LLP Community has grown from a handful of bloggers to a community of more than 140 bloggers from all over the United States and Canada. While we don’t always agree with each other, the community is the modern-day equivalent of the pamphleteers who helped started the American Revolution and firmly in the tradition of thinkers ranging from Thomas Jefferson and Thomas Paine to Murray Rothbard and Ayn Rand. If really want to know what we’re all about, then there’s no better way to find out than to read our blogs. Wondering if you’ll fit in ? Well, its really pretty simple to know:
Are you someone who believes in the inherent rights of life, liberty and property? Do you think government?s job (if you believe in government) is to promote those rights? Do you define yourself as a libertarian, anarchist, minarchist, or classic liberal? Do you oppose the extension of the state further into your life?
If the answer is yes, then you’ll fit in well.
2. What do I need to do to join the LLP Community ?
First, you need to send me an email. Be sure to include your Blog’s URL and, if possible, links to a few things you’ve written on the subject of individual liberty, the Constitution, or any related topic.
Once I’ve told you that you’ll should add the Community Blogroll or Button, or both, to your blog.
The code for the blogroll is:
And the button code is:
<a xhref=”http://www.truthlaidbear.com/communitypage.php?community=lifelibertyproperty” mce_href=”http://www.truthlaidbear.com/communitypage.php?community=lifelibertyproperty” >
<img xsrc=”http://belowthebeltway.com/wp-content/uploads/2006/05/LLPButtonMed.jpg” mce_src=”http://belowthebeltway.com/wp-content/uploads/2006/05/LLPButtonMed.jpg” alt=”The Community for Life, Liberty, Property” /></a><br />
There are other versions of the button available if you’re looking for something different, I will have a post up with those buttons shortly.
I’d like to thank Eric for putting together this community and handing his work over to me. I look forward to seeing the community grow in the future.
