  • Re: Misuse of the term "Liberal"

    If you agree with that meaning of fascism, you agree that what people call liberalism in the US is fascism. In terms of chronology and intellectual history the Fascist, National Socialist and Soviet regimes drew heavily and openly open Wilsonian Progressivism, which is a species of liberalism; and in the specific case of Italy many of the 'fascist'

  • Re: How Well Will Ron Paul Do in New Hampshire?

    The trouble with New Hampshire, and the Free State Project in general, is population flight. The northeastern People's States have done such horrific damage to their economic and social liberties that the population is emigrating to greener pastures, such as New Hampshire. However, these people bring with them their social democratic politics; and

  • Re: League of Nations - Why does it not work?

    Do you want the historical or theoretical answer? Historically it was because the League of Nations was in fact a puppet of the Allies intended to establish once and for all Anglo-American hegemony in Europe and, if possible, the entire planet. Obviously, such an institution is not well calculated to avoid a conflict of international interests. Theoretically

  • Re: Paul Krugman says something important, which you should read.

    It's not him who writes his more political columns or inserts overtly political statements into them. It's his wife, fellow acclaimed economist Robin Wells, who has a veto on everything he writes publicly, as of 2002. I did not know this, but I am not surprised. The perils of marriage! Ironic that she left the U.S. due to Reagan's election

  • Re: Why Does the Eygptian Mob Have to Create a New Government?

    Why not live free? Why not rally to get rid of their existing government and then live freely. Do unto others that which you see is good? Because they are socialists. That is what socialists do, they implement states. As warranted as their complaints are the Egyptian people have no real alternative in mind, they seek to replace one despot with another

  • Re: Gold Standard | Purchasing Power of USD

    I don't think there's any way to ever gain back the purchasing power loss of the dollar. This is not strictly true. If they stopped the expansion of credit and ceased intervening in the economy the dollar would rise relative to goods and foreign currencies.

  • Re: Is Austrian Economics "right"?

    'Austrian' Economics, along with some of the Supply-Side, Public Choice and Neo-Institutionalist works, is economics simplicter. The 'mainstream' schools are not economics but a combination of numerology, statolatry and technocratic planning.

  • Re: Rationalwiki about libertarian history

    RationalWiki is a product of the Progressive Dawkinsian atheist, who is so immersed in the religion of liberal statism that he is not aware it is a religion. These people are intellectually of little value, simply repeating the tropes they learned in college, but they are representitive of the 'elite' in the United States.h

  • Re: Civil disobedience

    No, you are not being pessimistic. Civil disobedience works fantastically well if you have a large subsegment of the population which will engage in it, but so long as most people support the present regime at least passively there is really no benefit from it. It is far more practical and productive to protect yourself than to bother butting heads
