I’m Tom Mullen, author of A Return to Common Sense: Reawakening Liberty in the Inhabitants of America. I want to welcome you to my new website here at tommullen.net, which is dedicated to ideas that are conspicuously absent from our current political discourse: the natural law and our natural, inalienable rights.
Some people say that these ideas are outdated; that they don’t work in the complex, technological world that we live in today. I disagree. In fact, I argue that not only are natural rights and the natural law still relevant, but that they are the key to solving every one of our societal problems.
Today, all political and economic debate focuses on aggregate results, with each side arguing that their program will achieve better ones. These are collectivist arguments, which sacrifice individual rights for collective goals. I believe that before we can solve any of our problems, we must first shift the discussion from results to rights. Only then are we prepared to take just and equitable action.
So, this website sets out to rediscover the natural law, our inalienable rights, and the true meaning of liberty. On it, you’ll find all of my latest articles, television appearances, speaking engagements, and radio interviews. There are also links to other great writers and educational resources on the subject of natural law. I invite you to participate in this discussion and to encourage your family, friends and neighbors to do the same. Together, let’s go wherever these timeless ideas take us…and reclaim the freedom that we were born to enjoy. Thank you for your support.
