Jesse Walker (born September 4, 1970) is books editor of Reason magazine.[1] The University of Michigan alumnus has written the books The United States of Paranoia: A Conspiracy Theory (HarperCollins, 2013) and Rebels on the Air: An Alternative History of Radio in America (NYU Press, 2001), and he maintains a blog called The Perpetual Three-Dot Column. His articles have appeared in a number of publications, including The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, The Washington Post, The Atlantic, Salon, The New Republic, L.A. Times, L.A. Weekly, Chronicles, and No Depression.


Walker's writings display a definite libertarian bent, and he has cast a protest vote for the Libertarian Party's nominee in every presidential election of his adult lifetime except one, though "more often than not, I think they've put up a terrible candidate."[2]

Foreign policy[edit]

Walker was critical of the War on Terror[3] and opposed the Patriot Act.[4] He has stated that it is a myth that the U.S. pursued an "isolationist" foreign policy between World War I and World War II.[5]
