Editor’s Note: Celebrating Two Years of Spreading Liberty

–Dallas, Texas–

Dear OUTSET Reader,

My goodness, how time flies! As the saying goes, it feels just like yesterday that I hit the publish button our our very first article. In June of 2014, I had written down the concept for a new publication in a Moleskine notebook – a nameless idea at the time – but by August, OUTSET Magazine was a reality.

Even though our appearance, team, and methods have changed over the past two years, what has always been at the center of what we do here is our belief that liberty is worth sharing.

Leading this community has been a privilege. Our success has been made possible by our Contributors, past and present, who have dedicated their time and talents to the advancement of our core beliefs and values. And, of course, we also thrive because of our audience.

Whether you have been with us from the very beginning, or today is your first time on this site, thank you for your attention. Thank you for your continued support. And thank you for being our partners in liberty.

Here’s to many more years of success!

On behalf of the entire OUTSET team, thank you!
