Böhm-Bawerk is famous as ... [click for more]

Dangerous Speech: Would the Founders Be Considered Domestic Extremists Today?

“If you can’t say ‘F***’ you can’t say, ‘F*** the government.’” ― Lenny Bruce Not only has free speech become a four-letter word—profane, obscene, uncouth, not to be uttered in so-called public places—but in more and more cases, the government deems free speech to be downright dangerous and in some instances illegal. The U.S. government has become particularly intolerant ... [click for more]

Bernie Sanders: Revolutionary Stuck in Reverse

I get why people like Bernie Sanders. He seems like a genuine person. Most of his funding comes from grassroots donors and he has a mostly deserved outsider status. He’s honest about his political beliefs, and isn’t afraid to call himself a socialist. He has all the rancorous charm of Peter Finch in the 1976 film, Network : He’s ... [click for more]

The Failure of the Americans with Disabilities Act

The Americans with Disabilities Act was enacted 25 years ago. It promised a brave new era of equality and freedom. Instead, it has spawned endless lawsuits and absurd federal decrees while harming some of the people it sought to relieve. The original law was badly drafted and subsequent amendments and administrative decrees have made it far worse. The 1990 ADA ... [click for more]

Television, Football and Politics: Gaming Spectacles Designed to Keep the Police State in Power
