Carol Moore (born 1948) is an American libertarian, active in the New York City, Los Angeles and Washington, DC Libertarian parties, including stints as chair and secretary of the latter party.[1][2][3][4][5] She is an outspoken libertarian feminist.[6][7]

She is co-founder of Pro-Choice Libertarians (1987) and Libertarians for Peace (2002) which both still have websites and Facebook presences.

She has been an anti-war and war tax resistance activist since the late-1970s, most recently organizing dozens of protests with the DC Anti-War Network.[8][9][10][11][12][13][14]

She has written widely about political decentralism and secession. Her writings focus on governance in smaller political units.[15][16][17][18]

She has criticized the street violence tactics of anti-capitalist black bloc members of the anti-globalization and peace movements and the fact that they are condoned by leading "progressives."[19]

Moore also argues that "there is a link between sunspot activity and human tendencies to mass action and social and political change" and predicted in a libertarian publication that the fall of the Soviet Union would come at the height of the next sunspot cycle in 1989.[20][21]

She is author of a 1995 book on the Waco siege entitled The Davidian Massacre.[22][23][24][25][26][27][28][29]
