About Kerry Baldwin 

Kerry Baldwin is an independent researcher and writer with a B.A. in Philosophy from Arizona State University. In addition to her content and courses here on her website, MereLiberty.com, She’s also a regular contributor for the Libertarian Christian Institute.

Her writing focuses on libertarian philosophy and reformed theology and aimed at the educated layperson; challenging readers to rethink prevailing paradigms in politics, theology, and culture. She is a Confessionally Reformed Christian orthodox Presbyterian in the tradition of J. Gresham Machen (1881 – 1937), an outspoken libertarian and defender of Christian orthodoxy.

She became a libertarian, like so many others have in recent years, through exposure to the ideas of Ron Paul and a re-acquaintance with the US Constitution. In late 2016, she was introduced to the works of Roderick T. Long, Gary Chartier, and Gerard Casey (among others), and became convinced of anarchism. She is a reformed libertarian anarchist and hold that to be properly grounded in Reformed Christian convictions, and find an alternative to Patriarchalism, Feminism, Egalitarianism, and  Complementarianism in a Reformed perspective.

She is a single, homeschooling mother of three. She enjoys outdoor activities in the Jemez mountains near her home, and stereotypically introverted hobbies such as puzzles and brain teasers, reading, and learning more about herbal and nutritional medicine. She enjoys studying Reformational Philosophy by way of Roy Clouser, and appreciates the theology of Meredith Kline, Lee Irons, and Dutch theologians such as Herman Bavinck and Abraham Kuyper.

Current Projects & Independent Research

Women, Christianity, and Libertarianism

Moving beyond the complementarian/egalitarian debate, I’m working on research, articles, and podcasts, concerning a Reformational (Dooyeweerdian) philosophical view of individual identity and social anthropology. While I hold to the general complementarity of the sexes (Gen 1:27) and to the ordination of only qualified (1 Tim 3:3-7) and called (Acts 1:12-26) and confirmed (1 Timothy 5:22)  men, I reject Complementarianism for it’s substandard attempt at formulating a Christian anthropology, as well as its heterodox theology and view of the Gospel.

Here are some of the content I’ve already published regarding this topic:

A Novel Pro-life Libertarian View of Abortion

As some of you may know, I was recently in a debate with libertarian theorist and economist, Dr. Walter Block. We debated his theory of evictionism as a libertarian approach to abortion. I will continue work on a formal paper for peer review which includes the concepts of fetal self-ownership, child’s and parent’s rights (and responsibilities), rape, and differentiating aggressive and non-aggressive abuse.

Mere Liberty Courses: Socratic Seminar
