Abolish the Income Tax and IRS

For some time now we’ve lived with the scourge of civil asset forfeiture, under which the police can seize a person’s property on the mere suspicion it was used in a crime and without having to charge the owner with an offense. Since the authorities have no burden to prove guilt beyond a reasonable doubt, the burden of proving ... [click for more]

An Individualistic Foreign Policy

Two Americans were killed this past summer fighting for the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) in its ground offensive against Hamas in the Gaza Strip. Both were young men, and both were U.S. citizens. One had dual citizenship and the other joined the Israeli army after visiting the country in 2012. It turns out that there is a long ... [click for more]

TGIF: The State Is No Friend of the Worker

The election season is upon us, and we’re hearing the usual political promises about raising wages. Democrats pledge to raise the minimum wage and assure equal pay for equal work for men and women.

Leonard was a major influence on my worldview during the nearly 40 years I knew him. While I had not seen him much in ... [click for more]

The Politicians Are Scaring You Again

They are doing it again. “They” are the war-party politicians, Democrats and Republicans. “It” is scaring you into supporting another war in the Middle East. When will the American people learn? If in a republic the people are the ultimate check on government power, a gullible, easily frightened public is a disaster waiting to happen. Where is the derisive skepticism ... [click for more]

The Hegemony Builders

  Who are these, obsequious fools Lickspittles drawing e'er near To the flames of power, but fulfilled By a moment in diadem's glare?   “To arms!” they cry – to all but they For what good is slavish applause If spent upon a battlefield – What then for Caesar's next cause?   Oh mighty lambs, lust for war! Heedless of misery and pain Lust for him who makes it so Suckle the breast ... [click for more]
