Government and the Environment: a Role to Play?

In response to the anarachist or anarcho-capitalist argument that the government must take no role in environmental protectionism or defense of nature–that the free market will do it for us.

Things Jesus Never Said

Libertarians advocate for getting the government to stop backing/supporting/granting/licensing ANY type of marriage of any kind – gay, straight, or […]

Drowning in Debt: Neither Party Recognizes the Danger

“Under democracy one party always devotes its chief energies to trying to prove that the other party is unfit to rule — and both commonly succeed, and are right.” ~H.L. Mencken

Charity With Other People’s Money is Not Charity

A voter who takes pride in supporting such programs is telling us that he’ll do good with his own money — if a gun is held to his head.

Commodity Prices During “The Bernanke Era”

What people today call inflation is not inflation, i.e., the increase in the quantity of money and money substitutes, but the general rise in commodity prices and wage rates which is the inevitable consequence of inflation. ~Ludwig von Mises

Proposed vs Actual Reality of Democrats vs Republicans

“You have the really evil party and you have the really stupid party. Sometimes they get together and do something that is both evil and stupid. That’s bipartisanship!” Tom Woods
