War for Men's Minds
The Handshake versus the Fist
by Marco den Ouden

In the war for people's minds, is it better to be angry and defiant, to be a rebel? Or is it better to present our philosophy as a positive, as a truth that is universal? A truth that it hard for our ideological enemies to refute?

Some nations are successful and wealthy, while others suffer in poverty. To argue, in a world dominated by economic collectivism, the true reality behind the success of countries, one must objectively present empirical facts and rational understanding.

A Solution to the Greek Credit Crisis
by Paul Hibbert
Sanctions: 12Sanctions: 12Sanctions: 12 Sanction this ArticleEditMark as your favorite article

The current economic crisis in Greece requires a totally new, radical approach that allows the Greek people to reinvent themselves and restore their dignity. The proposal separates the economy from the legitimate functions of government so that manipulation of the currency for political and social engineering ends is no longer possible.

          Krugman has a regular column in The Times, so he can discuss what he chooses to discuss so why is he fussing, as he did in a recent column, that others have other topics they wish to discuss not the ones he likes? Must we all take the lead of Krugman? What conceit!

Precious Metals Dealers Embargo Minnesota
by Michael E. Marotta

Effective July 1, 2014, anyone who wants to sell any coin of more than 1% precious metal content must pay 10% of their estimated annual gross income to the state of Minnesota.  Like all bad laws, this one achieves the exact opposite of its stated intention. Rather than making Minnesota "safe for bullion" they are preventing all coin sales to anyone from Minnesota.

Arrogance of Power!
by Tibor R. Machan
Sanctions: 18Sanctions: 18Sanctions: 18 Sanction this ArticleEditMark as your favorite article

Just how utterly reliant on sheer power is President Obama can be appreciated from the fact that no one in his administration bothers to defend his policy of confiscating people’s resources.  Apart from calling upon the phony support of a few super rich folks like Warren Buffet -- who, I understand, is by no means offering his own wealth up for use by Mr. Obama (instead engaging in customary dodging and weaving, not paying up) -- no argument has been put forth by the administration for the progressive tax policy it relies upon.

Professor Lynn Hunt’s recently published book on rights, titled Inventing Human Rights, is filled with a great deal of very useful important information about the emergence of the idea of basic human, individual rights, but it also perpetuates, perhaps entirely unconsciously, a very serious and hazardous error.

Self-Referential Paternalist Foibles
by Tibor R. Machan
Sanctions: 30Sanctions: 30Sanctions: 30 Sanction this ArticleEditMark as your favorite article
At the foundation of this paternalism lies the belief that many of us ordinary blokes need some pushing around so we conduct ourselves properly, sensibly, prudently, wisely--in short, virtuously. Never mind that virtuous conduct needs to be freely chosen for it to amount to something praiseworthy. (Read more...)

Sobbing for Dictators!
by Tibor R. Machan
Sanctions: 6Sanctions: 6 Sanction this ArticleEditMark as your favorite article
As the BBC reported, the late North Korean dictator Kim Jong-il was provided with mass marches throughout the country in mourning of his recent death. As the thousands were shown on TV, they did what is routine on such occasions in countries with absolute rulers. The people gyrate and undulate and holler, supposedly expressing their earnest grief, although it is remarkable that no tears were in evidence from any participants. (Read more...)

TSA & a Free Country: Are the Compatible?
by Tibor R. Machan
Sanction this ArticleEditMark as your favorite article
Why does the TSA annoy so many of us? Not having the resources to do a survey, I resort here to what might be called educated speculation. I suspect it is because free men and women consider it invasive for government agents to order them around--pat them down, make them endure electronic surveillance, being ordered around by TSA agents, etc.--unless they give their permission.

So here is a wonderful opportunity for the current crop of Republicans, with Mitt Romney leading them in the next few months, to mount a bona fide, no holds barred revolution that will complete the first one. Ron Paul might have been counted upon to lead it but one may doubt that Mitt Romney is going to go there. Too many leaders of and people within the Republican Party remain statists who believe that the government rules the people instead of serving them. (Read more...)

A few weeks ago they ran the famous Oxford v. Cambridge rowing race on the Thames but a fanatical egalitarian, Mr. Trenton Oldfield from Australia, ruined it for everyone by jumping in the river and blocking the race in the name of resisting the elitism of rowing! He was dubbed in the UK the “anarchist swimmer” and has mounted some other guerrilla strikes to make his point. Among other things he is urging cabbies to take well to do passengers on long detours and cleaners not to place toilet paper where they are expected to serve rich folks. (Read more...)
