Welfare State Jesus

There are few things more intellectually pathetic than a political liberal who tries to make Jesus look like a political liberal. The Progressive political movement known as the social gospel is based on this view of Jesus. Its theology can be summarized as follows: “Thou shalt not steal, except by majority vote.” Nicholas Kristof writes […]

Milton Friedman vs. Private Property

This story deserves to be better known. One of the foundations of Western liberty is the defense of private property against invaders. This principle goes back to the Mosaic law. If a man shall cause a field or vineyard to be eaten, and shall put in his beast, and shall feed in another man’s field; […]

Gary North vs. Milton Friedman

One month before I joined Ron Paul’s Congressional staff in Washington, my article against school vouchers was published in The Freeman (May 1976). That was a long time ago. My article was directed against Professor Friedman’s chapter favoring school vouchers in his 1962 book, Capitalism and Freedom. School vouchers are a way to let parents […]

NAFTA Is Fascist

A common cliché of protectionism is this one: the United States government needs to negotiate better deals for American companies. It is time to call a spade a spade. This is fascism. Fascism is the economics of a government-business alliance. There should be no government-business alliance. The government should not be involved in business. Whenever […]

Leaks Are Good for Liberty

The White House is leaking like a sieve. Why should conservatives worry about this? The federal government does everything it can to increase the secrecy of its operations. It invades our privacy, but it whines when any of the rest of us invade the privacy of government bureaucrats. I am all in favor of WikiLeaks. […]

Greenspan on Gold

“When our friends get elected, they aren’t our friends any more.” — M. Stanton Evans My deceased friend Stan Evans became deservedly famous for this law of politics. This law applies to high-level appointments. Back in the days when I was starting out in my career, Alan Greenspan wrote an article for Ayn Rand’s Objectivist […]

Creative Production

Fifty years ago, I added a subtitle to the manuscript of my book, published the next year, Marx’s Religion of Revolution: The Doctrine of Creative Destruction (1968). I changed that subtitle two decades later in the revised edition: Regeneration Through Chaos. I changed the cover, too. There was a doctrine of creative destruction in the […]

Intellectual Schizophrenia

Going back to the Egyptians in the ancient world, education has always been based on some version of the textbook. The textbook came into its own in the second half of the 15th century. That was because of Gutenberg. But textbook-based education had always been used, except they were not printed textbooks. They were provided […]

Peter Thiel Can Create a Libertarian College

How do you set up an accredited university? You buy one. Then you convert it into a 100% online school. The secret to all this is the fact that small colleges are going out of business all the time. They have one asset worth retraining: regional accreditation. Everything else can be sold off. Let’s assume […]

When Your Child Dies

It has been a decade since I wrote my son’s obituary. I posted it the next day. Lew Rockwell posted it the day after I posted it. Writing it eased the pain. Writers often write to ease the pain. When you are depressed, work. Work is a productive pain-killing drug. Warning: If you ever get […]

Prevent Nuclear War With Russia

People in the media all think that they have the wisdom to advise President Trump. Frankly, they don’t. Of course, I am an exception. He should listen to me on this point. I am going to suggest something that I think he really should do. It would be good for the nation and good for […]

Sensible Politics Is About Revenge

I wrote this before Trump delivered his inaugural address. His address confirmed what I say here. I wrote my assessment of his speech within an hour after he delivered it. Read my assessment here. Bobby Fischer at the age of 14 became the youngest U.S. chess champion in history. A reporter asked him what he […]

Let the Battle Begin

Donald Trump’s inaugural address is going to go down in history as one of the great ones. I say this as a man with 59 years of public speaking experience and a Ph.D. in American history. There have only been three inaugural addresses that have come down through the ages. The first was Lincoln’s second […]

Where’s Hillary?

I am not one of those people who believes that a particular political party is at the end of the road. That’s because I think both political parties are in the hip pocket of the Council on Foreign Relations, and have been since approximately 1932. Political parties have periods in which they are dominant. Then […]

Our Deadly Enemy

In October, I published an article about Angelo Codevilla’s article, “After the Republic.” He has done it again. I have worked with him for over 40 years, when we were both on Capitol Hill as researchers. I regard him as the smartest guy in the conservative movement. His specialty is foreign policy, but in recent […]

Crisis and Legitimacy

Those of us who are known as conspiracy historians argue that the Council on Foreign Relations, the Trilateral Commission, and various other high-level elite societies provide most of the leadership at the national level of the United States. In other words, we think that the system is rigged. At the same time, we are well […]

Lame Duck Sings Swan Song

Julian Assange says that no state entity provided stolen emails to Wikileaks. He is adamant about this. It gets little coverage. Fox News did report this, but the Democrat-controlled mainstream media have not. Assange made this clear: “Everything is almost completely insecure now. Computer systems have become so complex that it is not possible to […]

Pneumonia Is Not Our Friend

Jim Henson created the Muppets. In late 1989, he sold his company to Disney for $150 million. In early 1990, he began experiencing flu-like symptoms. On May 15, he got really sick. Wikipedia reports: That night, Henson’s wife Jane, from whom he was separated, came to visit for the last time. Hours later, on May […]
