  • White Privilege

    I overcame this rising video on youtube and it got me thinking of what is considered "white privilege", mainly on how to define it and how to quantify and measure it scientifically to see if it exists. Anyone have any comments on the theory of "white privilege" and whether there is any truth

  • Rothbard on Time Preference & the Demand for Money.

    In Rothbards "America's Great Depression", he makes the assertion that: "The demand for money is completely unrelated to the time-preferences people might adopt." Pg 40. "Keynesian Criticisms of the Theory." I am having difficulty understanding this. Is it not true that when a persons demand for cash holdings or savings

  • Re: Why does the liberal media hate Sarah Palin?

    Because somebody needs to fill the "stupid republican" role. Now that Bush is out of the spotlight, Palin is the next best thing.

  • Tax Cuts, "Trickle-Down"Economics, & Graph Refutation.

    - Many left-leaning people that argue that tax cuts aren't the best policy for the economy employ graphs, similar to the one's above, that highlights a negative correlation between tax rates and economic preformance (whether it be job creation or wages). If at all, how are these graphs, and ones like them, misleadleading and what is the best

  • Re: health care as a "right"

    [quote user="Nick"] the overall health of the population is still affected by the health of the weakest individuals, so what should society do about them? [/quote] "Society" is an abstract concept. It would be better to ask: What should individuals do about it, and what is the most efficient way to improve their well being?

  • Re: The State Is Not Great: How Government Poisons Everything

    Big fan of your work Jacob but here's my advice: People are more inclined to watch videos (and, thus, those videos get more views) when they are generally not much longer than 5 mins. Blame it on low attention span I guess. Because most people are not commited ancaps like us, if some of your videos were a little shorter I believe they would reach

  • Re: National Parks

    [quote user="rosstaylor"] I understand your argument, but if it wasn't for the government, I truly believe that nature's most beautiful creations would have been destroyed. I feel that this is more or less a protection of "private property" for us and for future generations. There are no foundations large enough to buy the

  • Treatment & rehabilitation of criminals.

    In our forced monopoly of governance, the state (particularly the US) deals with criminals by throwing them in large prisons with other criminals and hope they get better. I'm not sure if I agree with this approach. Now, setting aside for a moment that many of these "criminals" were doing victimless trades, and that there are obviously

  • Re: What would be done about lobbying and regulation lobbying in a Free Market?

    As long as there is government, particularily a democratic one, there will always be lobbying. Rent seeking has always been a response to a coercive monopoly that yields as much power (from and through) theft. Eliminate the state, eliminate lobbying.

  • Re: Response From Anarcho-Communist

    [quote user="mahall"] [quoteuser="Dustin Jussila"]Somebody whould write an expose on how the left argues. All leftists argue with a similar, I dunno, flavor. I can't quite put my finger on it. This guy worldview is pretty clouded anyway. [/quote] That's interesting. Could this flavor simply be collectivism? [/quote] Certainly
