YAR logoAbout the Magazine

Young American Revolution (YAR), the official publication of Young Americans for Liberty (YAL), is the premier publication for young libertarians, conservatives, and anti-statists of all stripes.

Each issue contains the best political, cultural, and economic writing by a rising generation of young Americans fighting the welfare-warfare state -- alongside essays and reviews by seasoned veterans of the liberty movement.

YAL understands the importance of spreading this powerful message and recognizes the opportunity for success is now. A publication written to educate and train an audience of future leaders and opinion makers is essential to our cause.

In its first year, the magazine featured interviews with Rep. Ron Paul and Judge Andrew Napolitano, as well as essays by Thomas E. Woods Jr., Glenn Jacobs, former Rep. John Hostettler, Justin Raimondo, Jack Hunter, and other leading pro-liberty voices. Young American Revolution is edited by Daniel McCarthy, former Internet communications coordinator for the Ron Paul 2008 presidential campaign and senior editor of The American Conservative.
