We Need Rules, Libertarians

So asks Jordan Peterson.  In response, he offers food for thought: The probability that it’s the friendliest and nicest people is very, very low. I suggest that what he is saying is that the probability that it’s the meanest and nastiest people is very, very high. Hans Hoppe weighs in on this topic: Why Bad […]

Why They Are After Trump

For several months, I have felt that the Trump=Russia witch hunt was a diversion. Sure, they want Trump out, but not for the stated reason – not for Russia.  They want Trump out because what he represents is a voice for people who are tired of seeing every libertine, immoral, property rights and wealth destroying […]

Man Destroys God

Prologue God creates dinosaurs. God destroys dinosaurs. God creates man. Man destroys God. Man creates dinosaurs. –        Dr. Ian Malcolm, Jurassic Park We know what happens next – dinosaur devours man. I refer to the conclusion from my piece, “And the Dying Cheer”: It is interesting: reaching the height of western liberal values immediately preceded […]

The #1 Target of Marxists

From the conclusion to my post regarding a look back at some of the early history of the Arab-Israeli conflict in Palestine: If history repeats itself, and the unexpected always happens, how incapable must Man be of learning from experience. –        George Bernard Shaw This “unexpected” hasn’t gone on for over one hundred years because […]

Pigs at the Trough

I was thinking about writing a post containing the list of CEOs of major US corporations who have come out against Trump’s decision regarding the Paris Climate Accord.  I am overwhelmed.  I would make my life easier by writing a list of those who haven’t. I cannot let it go unsaid regarding one of these: […]

That Pesky Enlightenment

It continues to cause problems.  Let’s consider one of the bedrock principles from the Enlightenment: “equality.”  Pay attention to the evolution of the term. From John Locke: A state also of equality, wherein all the power and jurisdiction is reciprocal, no one having more than another; there being nothing more evident, than that creatures of […]

America Invaded

Fantastic, I know.  Perhaps you are thinking, “what – is this a post about the War of 1812?”  After all, that might be the last (if not only) time that one would consider the statement in the title to be true. It has long helped that the United States was protected from invasion by two […]

The Most Libertarian President of My Lifetime

Who?  Which one?  Is bionic 225 years old? Let’s dispatch with the last question.  Average male life expectancy is something around 80 years; feel free to assume I am average.  So, let’s consider all presidents since Franklin Roosevelt as eligible candidates. Ivan Eland has written a book, Recarving Rushmore.  He examines all presidents up to […]

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. […]
