It cuts off, Conza. Can you provide a link?
[Nevermind, post was edited]
I've been uploading some images of my cat promoting ancap on facebook, just for personal fun (i don't typically like to advertise my own political beliefs [though i'll respond to others'], so this was a fun way of at least exposing some very small amounts of ancap in a fun format and an approachable/humorous way, without having to directly attribute it to myself :P
anyway... i thought you guys might get a little bit of a kick out of it. (the cat's name is Kasha [russian for oatmeal] which is where i derived my username, after combining it with something someone said in one of the mises.org blog or daily posts...) :)
"The Axiom of Radness:"
"i told her she probably needs to work on her rhymes if she wants to make it big..."
"I hate it when she makes me turn the pages for her. 'a little light reading' my ass."
Anyway, it might just be silly, but hopefully at least some of you get as much of a kick out of them as I had making them :)
I lurk these forums here and there... love the discussions! Hi everyone!
love that poem, especially first verse.
fist bump to you, kash
My humble blog
It's easy to refute an argument if you first misrepresent it. William Keizer
Yeah, I kinda wish I refined it a bit more now (especially that second one, it makes me really cringe), but I wasn't about to spend much time on it at all... it was just a spur of the moment fun thing to do during some down time.
Thanks, glad you enjoyed it! *fistbumps*
I, Pencil, even in a greatly simplified flowchart, is still mind numbingly complex. Any non-market based system must come to terms with this simple fact.
"The market is a process." - Ludwig von Mises, as related by Israel Kirzner. "Capital formation is a beautiful thing" - Chloe732.
Judging by chart, everyone on this forum is a centrist or moderate .
Freedom has always been the only route to progress.
I'm against a national defense because I'm against nations.
Indeed, the inherent universality and borderless nature of the market as a social sphere is something the statists with their committees, backroom meetings, Bilderburg conferences etc, can only hope to mimic. Like Hayek said, the curious task of economics is truly to show to such fools how little they really know about what they imagine they can design.
"When the King is far the people are happy." Chinese proverb
For Alexander Zinoviev and the free market there is a shared delight:
"Where there are problems there is life."
"Judging by chart, everyone on this forum is a centrist or moderate ."
I thought it was good propaganda. Seeing that, I'm sure a lot of ignorant folk would agree with it and take steps to check it out.
"I'm against a national defense because I'm against nations."
Well it doesn't say "nation-state"
I sometimes worry I only superficially understand Austrian economics when I laugh at comic stripes like these.
I came up with this for a blog post I wrote...
From Kinsella's facebook.
You're not lighting up the Ethics of Liberty, right?
Although you have that right - it's your property.
^Nice little grinder you got there , anything to get rid of that conservative stigma associated with "right wing" libertarians.
Absolutely not. One just needs a strong foundation to roll on
As for the right-wing dilema, agreed.
My comeback is simple if that happens to me - I work at a bong shop,
+1 for the fat chick gif.
Conza please share the link to that young lad gif.
Is this what you^ were looking for?

"But, superficial appearances can sometimes be deceiving, and that is true in this case. Let us consider an example. When A trades an a to B for one of his b’s, each of them, A and B, gain in welfare in the ex ante sense. That is, A values the b he receives more than the a he must give up in this exchange. And, similarly, B, ranks the incoming a more highly than the outgoing b. Perhaps the best illustration of this is that famous front cover of the Saturday Evening Post where Normal Rockwell draws the milkman and the pie man, each sitting in front of their respective trucks, munching away on a pie and slurping at a bottle of milk. We are given to understand by Rockwell, an artist who would appear to know more about economics than Friedman, that right before the scenario he depicted, the milkman (A) traded a bottle of milk (a) with the pie man (B) for one of the latter’s products (b), and that each did so because he valued what he received more than what he had to give up for it."
