I'm trying to accumulate as many sources as possible in favor of libertarianism and against statism. I daresay I might be able to find some here ;)

About Material

I am looking for anything that is accessible for free on the internet that is not a book, or if it is a book then one which is divided up into concise and useable sections (For a New liberty is a fairly good example)

Preferences:

Concise and to the point with easily read and quoted materials

Authoritative authors

Videos less than 15 minutes long are the best, but any type of video is the best

Data and figures are usually good to use "Loook at mee! I have a gwaphh!  Believe what I sayyy! :O"

Minor preferences:

I would like it if the materials were not from Mises, I already have a lot of sources from this site and I would like to have a wide variety of sites to use, the same thing goes for Cato, so I would appreciate it if only the best sources were cited from these sites.

Government sources or other sources which are not known for biases would be best

Preferably pure text is under 20 pages

Topics

Any topic that supports libertarian viewpoints is welcome! But some topics are more important than others

Historical Topics:

The truth about the industrial revolution

Things the government lied to you about or didn't tell you (For instance the fact Roosevelt really seems to have set up Japan, and that Coolidge killed thousands)

Why it wasn't government mandates that helped workers escape poor living conditions

The Great Depression (although I have a fair amount of data on this)

Violations of the constitution

The fed's role in economic troubles

Against Government horror stories about free markets

Current issue topics:

Why it is that American healthcare is terrible and why other countries don't have great healthcare systems

The reality behind the Recession and the case for laissez fair

Why the more socialist systems of Europe are not better (here pure data would really be good)

The drug war (data here is appreciated too)

U.S involvement in foreign wars

The case for ending social security

Economic issues

Why it is that government involvement in the economy usually has negative effects

The real reason economies grow

The Reasons capitalism is the best system

Political/other

Against democracy

Pro anarchist legal order and defense

A concise case for libertarian ethics

Why downturns are not part of a free market economy

Pro private charity and public services

Pro minarchist foreign policy

The inherent problems of government

 

Any data would be really helpful, if you would like to just throw useful sources at me then I would appreciate it. You can not put to much data here, the above are just some stuff that I can specifically think of that I could use.

Thanks!

Milton Friedman's entire Free to Choose series online

Probably the best book against the drug war, and the overexagerated myth about many drugs.

I noticed you didn't mention Reason magazine. So I'll just leave here a link to their "TV" website. They have a ton of great videos, I'm sure you'll find plenty you can use.

Some of my favorite short video clips:

David Friedman on education

Judge Napolitano on Government

Milton Friedman minimum wage

Hayek on moral values and alturism

Thomas Sowell on Welfare

How about just some propoaganda in general? If you take the time to search through his blog, this guy does some great anti-state artwork. 

This one happens to be a favorite of mine:

I'll add more in a bit, but for now...

 

Videos:

There are a few YouTube channels that specialize in doing exactly what you're asking for...taking parts of books, lectures, and interviews and breaking them into nice, bite size pieces focusing on different topics:

LibertyPen

Malthus0

brittle13

A nice collection of playlists of these kinds of videos here:

WideWorldOfWisdom

 

And there are others that produce quite a bit of useful original content:

shanedk

TheraminTrees

10000Pennies

EconMilitia

Nielsio

kaziqbal

ReasonTV

afq2007

CFPecon101

 

Then of course there are various lectures:

The New Deal: History, Economics, and Law

The Economics of the New Deal and World War II

Thomas E. Woods: The Truth About American History (10)

 

Books:

These aren't free, but they fit all your other criteria:

If they haven't been mentioned: Youtuber's Jacob Spinney and Lee Doren.

Freedom has always been the only route to progress.
