The Anatomy of the State

The anatomy of the state, by Murry N. Rothbard, is a fantastic essay. Everyone should give it a read: http://www.lewrockwell.com/rothbard/rothbard62.html What the State Is Not The State is almost universally considered an institution of social service. Some theorists venerate the State as the apotheosis of society; others regard it as an amiable, though often inefficient, […]

  • Cash Is a Blessing
    Starting today, the Royal Bank of Scotland will become the first bank in the U.K. to impose a negative interest rate on depositors. The negative rate will apply only to corporate customers, including mutual fund managers and pension funds, holding deposits of certain foreign currencies including euros. This means that RBS—in which the U.K. government still m […]
  • The Neocon Crackup
    Although I rarely find myself agreeing with neoconservative foreign policy adviser Elliot Cohen, it happened last week, when Cohen in a controversial tweet inveighed against the pro-Trump Journal of American Greatness.  Let me admit that I usually read this website publication with pleasure; and although, unlike its contributors, I am not a Straussian of any […]
  • Vote Trump?
    Stayton August 18, 2016 at 1:09 PM I wish Bionic Mosquito would do a post about the pragmatist vs. purist debate currently being waged among libertarians. “To vote Trump or not to vote,” if you will. Your wish is my command, but I suspect my response won’t be tremendously satisfying. I’m a parent. I haven’t got the luxury of principles. –        Benjamin Mar […]
  • Colleges Are Lunatic Asylums
    As the fall semester begins, parents, students, taxpayers and donors should be made aware of official college practices that should disgust us all. Hampshire College will offer some of its students what the school euphemistically calls “identity-based housing.” That’s segregated housing for students who — because of their race, culture, gender or sexual orie […]
  • What Should the US Do About Crimea?
    Is Crimea about to explode? The mainstream media reports that Russia has amassed troops on the border with Ukraine and may be spoiling for a fight. The Russians claim to have stopped a Ukrainian sabotage team that snuck into Crimea to attack key infrastructure. The Russian military is holding exercises in Crimea and Russian President Vladimir Putin made a vi […]

  • Dead Is Dead
    by Scott Cattanach Just this year, the National Academy of Sciences concluded that CAFE (“Corporate Average Fuel Economy” – the federal government’s new car fuel economy standard enacted in 1975) had contributed to the deaths of an extra 1,300 to 2,600 Americans every year in traffic accidents.  A 1989 Brookings-Harvard study estimated an annual death … Cont […]
  • Don’t Play Their Games
    by Johan R:son Sjöberg 4/16/2004 So you say you’re tired of government and all its stupidity? You say you don’t like its arbitrary rules, regulations, prohibitions, tariffs, controls, et cetera? You say you don’t know what to do to get rid of it? I’ve got some good and some bad news for you. I’ll start … Continue reading "Don’t Play Their Games" Th […]
  • The Meaning of Jurisdiction
    by Paul Hein 5/5/2004 If you ever instigate a lawsuit, one of the first things that you will likely file with the court, as part of your initial complaint, is a statement of jurisdiction. I am not a lawyer, but I gather that this is routine: a complainant acknowledging that the court has the jurisdiction … Continue reading "The Meaning of Jurisdiction […]

  • Let the Peace Games Begin
    The contrast between the two games couldn’t be starker. On the one hand, the world’s most technologically advanced militaries and weapons systems are deployed to practice combat. On the other, despite tremendous nationalist pressure to beat the other, athletes from North Korea and South Korea competed with each other peacefully, even gracefully, in the 2016 […]
  • Tomas Young’s War Is the Cost of Empire
    When the eulogy for the US Empire is finally written, it will not serve to glorify the exploits of the US government abroad. There won’t be a laudatory recounting of examples of the Empire spreading so-called democracy across the world by the barrel of gun, or by drone strike, or by military occupation. No one […] The post Tomas Young’s War Is the Cost of Em […]
  • The Foreign Invasion of American Politics
    As one of my Twitter followers put it so succinctly: “Globalization: Where leaders from any country get to pick US Presidents.” As the Clinton campaign’s Robby Mook tears a page out of Joe McCarthy’s book and smears Donald Trump as being “Putin’s puppet,” the irony is that this election has seen foreign interference in American […] The post The Foreign Invas […]

  • Biden in Belgrade: A Trip Down NATO-Invasion Memory Lane
    Vice President Joe Biden’s visit to Serbia was intended to send a message that the US stood by its policies, essentially promoting Hillary Clinton’s campaign. All it managed to do, however, was dredge up the bitter memories of the 1999 NATO invasion. Before jetting off to Belgrade on August 16, Biden gave a fiery speech […] The post Biden in Belgrade: A Trip […]
  • War: The Islamic State and Western Politicians Against the Rest of Us
    On July 28, London’s Central Criminal Court of England and Wales, aka “the Old Bailey,” announced the conviction of Islamist preacher Anjem Choudary on charges of “inviting support for a proscribed organization” (the Islamic State). He’ll be sentenced, likely to a long stint in prison, in September. On August 18, social networking service Twitter announced [ […]
  • Congress Must Take Action To Block Weapon Sales To Saudi Arabia
    Last week, the Pentagon announced the approval of the sale of an additional $1.15 billion worth of weapons to Saudi Arabia. The callousness of this announcement – just days after Saudi Arabia rebooted its devastating bombing campaign in Yemen – is breathtaking. The Saudi-led coalition has used American-made fighter jets, bombs and other munitions in […] The […]
