Don’t Be Scared About The End Of Capitalism—Be Excited To Build What Comes Next

No!
There aren't any other options. It's all either one form or the other of each of the two types of systems. This article refers to it as "old binaries" and intimates that there will be some future option so much better than either. There won't be. You can tell the author isn't on solid ground when you read statements like this, "...not all experiments with socialist principles have gone so horribly...

No, The Communist Soviet Union Wasn’t Anti-Fascist

WII photo of tank and driver likely in Poland.
It's odd to me that we need to have a discussion on how Communism, Fascism, Socialism, and Nazism are the same. Though there are differences between them they are as related as a schnauzer is to a shepherd. They may be different dogs, but they are dogs. They are all collectivist and totalitarian. You can spend time arguing the subtle things that make them unique from each other but in the end they...

Horse was the other red meat. I will eat just about anything really. Liver, snails, elk, all sorts of odd and dead things from the sea that others might turn their nose up at. However, I won't eat anything at all. I do have some personal limits. I don't eat horse, or dog. This isn't because I don't think they would taste good and not exactly due to a cultural more.

It's not my intention to rework their books which are in-depth treatments of how economies operate and under what conditions they do well. I simply want to convey a little meaning...

Socialism Eats its Own

Socialism is Death
Socialism cannot work. Socialism is not Righteous. I'm not saying it doesn't work. That would imply that there are some tweaks and changes that could be made that would make it work. It cannot work.

"A political and economic theory of social org...

Scott Pruitt – Dangerous-Drilling-Denier Put in Charge of the Hen House

Scott Pruitt is a denier
For those who voted for Donald Trump his choice of EPA chief is a sign that his campaign was more than just rhetorical, more than just the typical promise and forget politics we have all gotten used to. For those who voted against Trump his choice of EPA chief is a sign that the dark demons of Tartarus are rising to consume us all. Just what makes Scott Pruitt so horrible? He doesn't bel...

Economics in One Lesson: The Shortest and Surest Way to Understand Basic Economics by Henry Hazlitt’s

You may have heard television personality and all around nice guy Mike Rowe recommend this book as he's often done. Though I am nice I'm not much of a personality still I'd like to throw my recommendation behind this book as well. It is easy to read, easy to understand and logical. The book is a favorite among libertarians and has been endorsed by Ron Paul who said: "I strongly recommend t...
