Libertarian Law in the Middle Ages

“The lamps are going out all over Europe; we shall not see them lit again in our lifetime.” –  Edward Grey, Secretary for Foreign Affairs, on the eve of the Great War Prologue Genesis 2: 9 The Lord God made all kinds of trees grow out of the ground—trees that were pleasing to the eye […]

The Enemies List

The only U.S. president to make Saudi Arabia his first foreign visit… Trump signed a mega-deal with Saudi Arabia: Running parallel to Trump’s summit with Saudi King Salman on Saturday is a business forum that will include senior executives from about 45 U.S. companies. Defense contractors Lockheed Martin (LMT) and Raytheon (RTN) are due to […]

Arming the Beheaders

Despicable: deserving to be despised, or regarded with distaste, disgust, or disdain; contemptible This is the word that comes to mind when I read the speech given by Trump while in Saudi Arabia, the land with one of the most heinous human rights records on the planet.  Forgive the length of the cites; I know […]

The 1% President

Yes, I know…they are all presidents for the one percent.  But that isn’t what I am getting at. Donald Trump makes for an interesting president.  Whatever one hoped, feared, dreamt or desired out of his presidency, what can be said – without fear of being labeled a liar or some form of degenerate (deplorable?) – […]

Non-Aggression Is Essential

I have had a continuing dialogue in the comments section of my post Liberté sans Fraternité?  The conversation begins here: The NAPster May 6, 2017 at 5:03 AM.  I have decided to continue the conversation via this new post. —————————— BM: You continue to avoid the fact that I own the state-controlled property.  Why? NAP: […]

The Devil’s Pope

It’s been a while since I have commented on anything regarding the current pope.  That ends today! Those Rotten Libertarians The pope recently offered a critique, based on numerous strawmen, of libertarianism.  Several people have rightly offered a response.  The few that I have read have been respectful, attempting a rational and reasoned dialogue with […]

The Basket of Acceptables

I had two reasons to hold a rooting interest in Trump’s campaign to become president: first, virtually every position he took in the campaign was a poke in the eye of the establishment, neocon, culture-destroying elite.  Second, he said he would make nice with Russia. On the first, the point was not what Trump would […]

As the Trump Turns

As the Trump Turns I have been thinking more on the turning of Trump.  I read and listen to those who boldly and loudly paint the best possible interpretation of his complete 180 degree U-turn on several major statements Trump made during the campaign: getting further involved in Syria, coming to agreement with China, etc. […]

Real Libertarianism

This will be my final post reviewing the compilation of Murray Rothbard’s essays for the Rothbard-Rockwell Report, entitled “The Irrepressible Rothbard.”  This has been both an entertaining and enlightening read; further, it has provided a walk down memory lane – the national politics of the early 1990s. Max Lerner I begin with Rothbard’s examination of […]

Kulturkampf!

The title of an essay written by Murray Rothbard in October 1992, captured in the compilation “The Irrepressible Rothbard.” Yes, yes, you rotten hypocritical liberals, it’s a culture war!  And high time, too!  It is, of course, typical of our liberal “intellectual” and media elite: after having ridden through and captured our culture, after twenty-odd […]

The United Airlines Disaster

Anyone who flies knows the drill: airlines overbook their flights.  They do this because some passengers will change plans and not take the flight.  Occasionally this practice by the airlines results in too many passengers and not enough seats.  At the gate the agent asks for volunteers, offering compensation for those willing to take a […]

The Way the Wind Blows

NB: This will be one of my more disjointed posts.  Today’s events make clear where the world is headed…and one way or another, it ain’t pretty.   But my views on that are for another day. Just a couple of days ago, I wrote “The Takeover is Complete.”  Trump has gone from radical to neocon insider […]

Libertarians and the Nation

“The Irrepressible Rothbard” Murray Rothbard, writing at the time of the collapse of communist Eastern Europe, addresses the issue of the suppressed nationalities: …it is a chance in Europe at long last, to begin to reverse the monstrous twin injustices of Sarajevo and Versailles One wonders why Sarajevo and Versailles would need to be addressed […]

The Hollowed-Out Empire

John Batchelor interviewed Michael Vlahos, Naval War College.  The topic was “Imagining the Fall of the American Empire.”  Vlahos doesn’t just imagine it – it is inevitable. I offer some paraphrased excerpts from the interview – no transcript, just as fast as I could type.  I will offer these paraphrased excerpts without further comment until […]

What John McCain Means by ‘Our Country’

“I am more worried about this country than I’ve been in my entire lifetime,” [John McCain] said.  “We are seeing strains on the world order.” What does McCain mean by “this country”?  Does he mean the people, customs, and culture, or does he mean the government – the elite and their puppets in Washington?  Is […]

Why They Hate Rothbard

Given the foundational work Rothbard has done in developing and furthering libertarian theory, it is interesting to note how he is at best ignored and at worst despised by the broader libertarian movement. What is more interesting is that Rothbard takes bullets from all sides – in many ways, the one thing many mainstream libertarians […]

Uncomfortable Questions

An interesting dialogue.  One that raises uncomfortable questions.  The dialogue has been ongoing at this blog for quite some time; in many ways, the dialogue can be summarized here, beginning with the comment by Nick Badalamenti March 22, 2017, at 6:38 AM. For close to two years I have been examining the relationship of the […]

Libertarians and Open Borders

I return to the compilation of Rothbard’s essays originally written for the Rothbard-Rockwell Report, entitled “The Irrepressible Rothbard.”  This essay is entitled “Education: Rethinking Choice.” You might ask: what does education choice have to do with open borders?  Walk with me, and keep an open mind. Rothbard sees vouchers, allowing parents a choice in where […]
