Book Review | Capitalism in America: An Economic History of the United States – Alan Greenspan & Adrian Wooldridge

Given Alan Greenspan's notorious reputation among libertarians as a Randian free-marketeer who became corrupted during his time in the Federal Reserve and ended up being largely responsible for the easy money policy that contributed to the Great Recession, I was curious as to how he would characterize particular events in the economic history of the … Continue reading Book Review | Capitalism in America: An Economic History of the United States – Alan Greenspan & Adrian Wooldridge

Book Review: The Trigger: The Lie That Changed the World | David Icke

Eighteen years after the most devastating attack on the Western world in peacetime in modern history, we can all see the destructive development against individual liberties that has been unfolding as a consequence: Never-ending wars in Afghanistan, Iraq, and later Syria, Libya, and various other countries in the Middle East and Africa; the power of … Continue reading Book Review: The Trigger: The Lie That Changed the World | David Icke

Hoppe on the Problems with Democracy and the Monopoly of Force

An important reason for why possibly a majority today justify or at least put up with having a monopoly of force with the power to tax them and restrict their freedoms is the perception that "the State is us", so to speak. We all have the possibility to try to convince a majority of the … Continue reading Hoppe on the Problems with Democracy and the Monopoly of Force
