At the beginning of 2017, Luke had his first piece of writing published by Being Libertarian and quickly became a contributor to the libertarian news site, The Libertarian Vindicator. Through the Vindicator, Luke discovered his passion for addressing critics of the philosophy and bringing together different factions of liberty lovers which compelled him to become an editor for The Libertarian Coalition, a forum dedicated to an open-minded discussion of libertarian ideas from all walks. After many guest contributions to Being Libertarian, Luke was asked to join the website as a contributor, where he writes his column Scoring For Liberty, which discusses sports, politics, and economics from a libertarian lens, and his Educator series that seeks to strengthen libertarian’s understanding of educational techniques and policy to better arguments against public education. Luke is one of the District 1 Executive Committeemen for the Missouri Libertarian party, and the founder of the Missouri Chapter of the Libertarian Positivity Caucus. Outside of politics, Luke is a paraprofessional for the Special School District of St. Louis, a musician, composer, and a loving husband and father.

  1. Austin Petersen openly admits that he completely opposes the NAP! Considering that the non-aggression principle is part of the very definition of libertarianism, this means that Petersen is NOT libertarian. The fact that he will likely leave the LP and join the Republican Party is just another proof. Anyone who still thinks thinks Austin Petersen is a libertarian, does not understand what libertarianism is! This includes the Republican supporting “libertarian vindicator.”


  2. For the sake of the Libertarian party, and other Libertarian candidates running for public office, I sincerely hope Mr. Petersen declares as a Republican. No, we haven’t forgotten about his tweets. Yes, we still think he is a moron.
