Thomas Knapp Named News Analyst at C4SS

He is uniquely suited to explain how libertarian principles, consistently applied, reach beyond the inconsistent market liberalism of figures like U.S. Congressman Ron Paul into full-blown market anarchism.

Thomas Knapp started "Rational Review" many years ago. It made a lot of us in the freedom movement go "WOW!!!!"

He had to change the format because it was eating too much of his time. In the beginning he would link the online newspaper's (mainstream newspaper) headline, but completely rewrite an introductory section underneath. This meant he had to read the article ... and a lot he did not post, and then creatively come up with his own spin ... often the exact opposite of what the article's author intended. He was so on the mark on what the correct interpretation of some "news" item was it was an example of what news blogging would eventually become. It was hilarious, informative and oh so good.

"Rational Review" is still great, but other contributors have helped lighten the load. But many years later Thomas Knapp continues to roll out a excellent daily news link and opinion online newsletter. More than anyone I can appreciate how much effort he must put in daily to bring attention to the stories that ought be told.
