Hayek, which forewarned of socialist trends in Britain and America that ran the danger of leading to tyranny if taken to their logical ... [click for more]

TGIF: The Inherently Humble Libertarian

by
You would think that the advocates of a philosophy of political economy that embraces spontaneous social order, bottom-up rule-making based on peaceful voluntary exchange, and even competing polycentric law at least at some level would be safe from the charge of conceit. How conceited can someone be who forswears compelling other people to live in certain ways, ... [click for more]

States, United States: America’s James Bond Complex

by
Today, American politicians of both major parties — conservatives, “moderates,” and so-called liberals alike — insist that the United States is an “exceptional,” even “indispensable” nation. In practice, this means that for the United States alone the rules are different. Particularly in international affairs, it — the government and its personnel — can do whatever deemed necessary to carry ... [click for more]
