  • Re: Stefan Molyneux responds to David Gordon.

    Sat. 12/07/07 14:04 EDT . post #208 Just a tangential note here: I suggest editing your tags and separating the tags words with semi-colons. This will create multiple tags and hence multiple opportunities for people to find this post. As it stands, your (single) tag is just one long string of words,...

  • Stefan Molyneux responds to David Gordon.

    'So it appears that I have been thoroughly called out by David Gordon at, ridiculed for my "preposterously bad" reasoning, told that I should learn how to construct basic arguments, and been loftily informed that I have failed miserably in my philosophical goals. The article is...

  • How much information do we know and can we apply it and what is "information"?

    Perhaps this question would belong on a philosphy forum (I'm conflicted over posting here even as I type) but I suppose that since general philsophical and theological topics sometimes appears on here that I am not overstepping my bounds. My inquiry is about information: what is it? How much of it...

  • Is there such a thing as a ‘necessary’ evil?

    It puzzles me how many people say this or that thing or particular action is a ‘necessary’ evil. Didn’t you just say it is evil? If it is evil then how is it necessary? How can you do good by doing something evil? Necessary evil seems pretty much like an oxymoron to me. This happens...

  • Production ≠ Creation?

    In the "Production" section, which follows the "Creative Genius" section of Human Action , Mises defines prouction as (p. 140) not an act of creation [...]. The producer is not a creator. Man is creative only in thinking and in the realm of imagination. In the world of external phenomena...

  • Libertarianism, Theology, and Religion

    Personally, I'm not a libertarian in the non-aggression sense (in principle my views could vary from "laissez-faire statism" [a more essential definition of ancap IMO] to totalitarianism depending on the exigencies of history), but I'm a Catholic and I would say that I believe that...

  • Is it truly possible to escape collectivism?

    I've been thinking about this a lot. Can you ever really leave collectivism when living in civilization or otherwise? I hear pro-collectivists claim that even capitalism in its purest form has collectivism in it since people will always join together in "collectives" no matter what. Is...

  • Any mutualists or "left-libertarians" on this forum?

    Not that I agree w/ their anti-capitalist ideology, but I want to know more about it. Under a mutualist system, would capitalism be allowed to happen? And why are mutualists opposed to capitalism when they say they support free markets and anarchy?

  • Can Ron Paul really end the FED?

    Can he? Supposing Dr. Paul gets elected president how would he be able to end the FED? There are tons of people who have an incentive to keep the FED around that he'll have to go against. It's just him and a handful of others in DC who want to end it. Do you think FED ending is realistic?
