What is Capitalism?

No comments

It appears as though most people don’t know what capitalism is.  A recent worldwide BBC poll finds that only 11% of people across 27 countries believe that capitalism is working well.  People want more government regulation. What Capitalism is Capitalism is nothing more than the sum of the individual action of free people engaging in […]

Scott Horton, the heroic voice of AntiWar Radio on the TSA, the police state, empire, and the pathetic submission of the American people. This is 17 minutes of Scott at his best.  There is nothing I can say to add to this piece, you have to just listen to it yourself. Note:  Strong language [Audio […]

The purpose of this entry and the following will be to view slavery from an economic / individual liberty perspective.  I will make three fundamental propositions in this first analysis: 1)  Self ownership is the most basic form of property. 2)  Slavery cannot exist without the State. 3)  Slavery is economically unfeasible. These arguments are […]

Swine Fraud

This morning, I heard that 95% of all flu cases in the United State (not a typo) have been Swine Flu, and that there is a shortage of vaccinations available as people scramble to save themselves from imminent death. 95%?  Holy cow, it is a pandemic! But then there is this: In late July, the […]

I was recently made aware that the new Michael Moore movie Capitalism:  A Love Story closes with a list of “rights” as stated by the fascist Franklin Delano Roosevelt, following: The right to a useful and remunerative job in the industries or shops or farms or mines of the nation; The right to earn enough […]

Millions of people took action to participate in the […]

We’re All Socialists Now?

No comments

The February 16, 2009 issue of Newsweek indicates all that is wrong with the old dinosaur mainstream media.  The article is devoid of any economic theory, nor even a premise other than that socialism is inevitable and, what the heck, we might as well embrace it because “since neither consumers nor business is likely to […]

100% Austrian

1 comment

I’ve been studying the Austrian School of Economics for some time now, and I am proud to have finally found a home. In the business and management world, Dr. Deming taught that without proper theory, one has no sound basis for action.  Without theory, one finds themselves endlessly reacting to events that occur around them, […]

I Don’t Know the Answer

This is a statement that I wish those who advocate the free market used more often:  I Don’t Know the Answer. Those who argue for the State often challenge those of us who are against the State to pose our alternative.  Pick your scenario, it doesn’t matter:  How would we provide “xxx” without the State?  […]
