How free is your state?
Where does your state rank in the Freedom in the 50 States report?
We are looking for writers to write on topics relating to freedom and the spirit of the individual. Freedom Forge Press is non-partisan, objecting to both Democratic and Republican tendencies to be overly-controlling of too many aspects of our lives, from dictating the numerous programs to which our tax dollars must be allocated, to telling people what they should be allowed to do with their bodies and their lives. While government is necessary, it should exist to protect freedoms for every individual in the broadest sense, rather than taking freedoms away under the misguided label of helping the greater good–and causing the unintended consequences of those efforts. Instead, we believe that people should be given the freedom to choose which causes they would like to support, the opportunity to do so, and the ability make informed decisions about their own lives. It is the belief in the spirit of the individual–the faith that each man should be trusted to make the best decisions for himself and his family–that allowed this country to be the freest in the world. And it is continued belief in these principles that will continue to do so.
Mission: Freedom Forge Press is a small publisher seeking high-quality fiction and non-fiction that promotes the themes of freedom, independence, and the spirit of the individual. We are a nonpartisan organization seeking to promote the idea of freedom and limited government to a readership that embraces and defends freedom as a birthright.

Author Channels Vercors Family History Into a Novel of the Fight for Freedom in the French Resistance!
The Fortress: A Story of the French Resistance.
Six weeks before Operation Overlord, hundreds of miles from the beaches of Normandy...
There are no generals in the French Vercors, just a handful of men and women standing alone against the Nazi war machine. They have nothing left, no friends, no allies, no hope.

A frequent criticism of the US healthcare system is that greedy insurance companies kill sick patients so we have to make healthcare a "right" that is managed by the government.
What if we did...and then compared how government managed "rights" to healthcare work in other countries where delayed and substandard care would produce far more deaths in the US system.
Not to mention the medicrats will use a phalanx of police to deprive people of a right to seek care that is privately funded or offered by other systems...
Now flip the question: How many people die in other countries due to deficiencies in their healthcare systems? And how many people would die in the US if we had treatment outcomes similar to those in other countries?
"Big business loves big government." This is why we can't have nice things...

It took us a while to break the habit, too.
Were you taught to put two spaces after a period at the end of a sentence? Many people were, but now most publications recommend using just one.
Tipping our hat to the democrats and republicans working together to defund legalized government theft.
The House passed amendments this fall blocking Jeff Sessions' asset forfeiture directive. Now senators want to make it stick.
From our author, on reading Blythe as an allegory:
For those who read my novel “Blythe,” I think it is now time for me to share with you the deeper meaning of this work, which may not have been apparent on its first reading.
SPOILER ALERT FOR THOSE WHO HAVE NOT YET READ “BLYTHE”: DO NOT READ ON.
“Blythe” is an allegory on the spread of HIV/AIDS across society and search for a cure, all hidden in a story about love and separation.
HIV/AIDS is the driving theme that animates this entire novel. Once you understand that, it becomes a completely different, and, I hope, deeper, work of literary fiction.
If, after you first read “Blythe,” this wasn’t apparent to you, I encourage you to go back and read it again with this new insight; you will find it to be a completely new and even more moving tale.
I will include more insights in the comments below in the days ahead. And I welcome your comments and thoughts, too.

BY VAL MULLER Today, October 10, marks 60 years since Ayn Rand's Atlas Shrugged was published. For those of you who haven't read it--it is, after all, a lengthy tome--we wanted to highlight some of the freedom aspects we love about the novel. Having grown up in Russia, Rand saw her father lose his successful business to government thuggery. Under a government that disrespected property rights, Rand and her family faced the possibility of starving to death. [ 1,587 more word ]

But without government, who would ticket people for codes violations hours after a major hurricane passes through?
Is this true?
Domestication is the process that civilization uses to indoctrinate and control life according to its logic. These time-tested mechanisms of subordination include: taming, breeding, genetically modifying, schooling, caging, intimidating, coercing, extorting, promising, governing, enslaving, terrorizing, murdering…the list goes on to include almost every civilized social interaction.

Big government leads to big stupidity.... Part II
We are taking on Pennsylvania's real estate monopoly, which requires getting a license, passing two tests, and working for a competitor for three years, just to help someone post a listing on AirBnB.
Ideas have a marketplace. When colleges or governments try to restrict speech and relegate it to "safe spaces" they do a disservice to us all!

Bureaucracy. It’s a nasty word that literally means “power of office.” Kafka saw it in the anti-Semitic environment in which he grew up. Orwell saw it in the terrible dictators of the Second World War And Steinbeck saw it in the more disguised—and more dangerous iteration--in Dust Bowl America. Rand saw it everywhere: people were not free to interact with others in a completely voluntary way. [ 1,081 more word ]
