I’m Matt Murphy, a software engineer by day and a liberty advocate by night, helping to drive America’s politics not to the left or right but toward sanity. I’m not a politician, or an institutional economist. I operate outside the proverbial beltway, and the analysis you’ll find here will be about the impact of public policy on ordinary people.

My inspiration for the name of the blog is derived from Paul Krugman’s “Conscience of a Liberal”. The blog will establish that a libertarian paradigm is the only way to achieve truly enlightened public policy, by focusing on the vast unintended consequences of the coercive power of the state.
