FAITH SEEKING FREEDOM: LIBERTARIAN CHRISTIAN ANSWERS TO TOUGH QUESTIONS

kerry baldwin – profile


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

My 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. I am a confessionally Reformed Christian orthodox Presbyterian in the tradition of J. Gresham Machen (1881 – 1937), an outspoken libertarian and defender of Christian orthodoxy.

I 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, I was introduced to the works of Roderick T. Long, Gary Chartier, and Gerard Casey (among others), and became convinced of anarchism. I am a reformed libertarian anarchist and hold that to be properly grounded in Reformed Christian convictions, and find an alternative to patriarchialism, feminism, egalitarianism, and complementarianism in a Reformed perspective.

I am a single, homeschooling mother of three. I enjoy 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. I enjoy studying Reformational Philosophy by way of Roy Clouser, and appreciate 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 forward with the complementarian/egalitarian debate, I’m working on research, articles, and podcasts, concerning a Reformational (Dooyeweerdian) philosophical view of individual identity and social anthropology.

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: Identity

Exploring a reformed view of identity through the Socratic method. The Socratic method is a time-tested of method of teaching critical thinking and critically exploring ideas. It also teaches self-awareness, self-control, and self-confidence with those who disagree with you.
