Who We Are

Stopping Socialism is a project launched in 2018 by Justin Haskins, the author of Socialism Is Evil: The Moral Case Against Marx’s Radical Dream (2018); The Heartland Institute, a national free-market think tank; and The Henry Dearborn Institute for Liberty. Nearly all of Haskins’ Socialism Is Evil is available, at no cost, on the Stopping Socialism website.

The Henry Dearborn Institute for Liberty is a nonpartisan, pro-liberty research association focusing on local, state, national, and international policy issues and the defense and advancement of important Western values—the same values that have made America the world’s most exceptional nation.

HDI’s mission is to develop and promote policies and defend the ideals of personal responsibility, individual liberty, religious freedom, education reform, free markets, responsible but fair immigration, international peace, fiscal restraint, constitutional reform, gun rights, and, most importantly, virtue (as it has been traditionally understood in the Western tradition).

HDI aims to promote these policies and ideas in the public arena by publishing articles, conducting research, and producing various forms of multimedia, including podcasts and videos.

HDI is primarily composed of individual scholars and pro-liberty professionals who work toward accomplishing HDI’s mission for little or no money. This is a passion project for those involved, not a money-making endeavor. The Henry Dearborn Institute for Liberty does not accept donations at this time, and it is not a 501(c)(3) nonprofit.
