LIBERTARIANS PONDER THEIR HERITAGE
The Libertarian Party is tracing its history back to its earliest days, which is somewhere around 1972. The results: “The LPedia” — a master library for loyal and curious Libertarians that will include historical documents, archives, news accounts, training materials and more.
“This will be a huge project as we have an incomplete collection of these items in our archives and they are fragile. We’ll also have to overcome the challenges of scanning large newsprint pieces. The home for these records will be LPedia.org — the working collaborative, crowd-sourced history of the Libertarian Party,” advises Caryn Ann Harlos, who is overseeing the project.
“This will not be limited to national items, though national items are those items in the scope of our Historical Preservation Committee. State parties can also use LPedia to preserve and update their history. It will take on a life of its own — spontaneous order if you will. Very libertarian,” she says.
