Self-ownership – Not a “politically correct” concept

Posted by Jesse on February 17, 2009

The latest podcast feed is better than the originals. Episode 2 – Self-ownership spells out the logical foundation for individual liberty.

This seemingly self-evident idea is one of the core reasons libertarians are so confident that people generally are libertarian at heart, even if the ideas aren’t applied consistently to other social/political issues.

Kane, er…Citizen X does a good job of keeping the libertarian case simple to understand. Learning how to apply the concepts of power and responsibility in our personal lives is the hard part.

I wrote a book for the layman explaining what really happened to the economy, who the true culprits are, and why the free market is the only approach that hasn’t been tried. It’s called Meltdown: A Free-Market Look at Why the Stock Market Collapsed, the Economy Tanked, and Government Bailouts Will Make Things Worse, and it was released yesterday. My publisher has made a free chapter available for download.

Book for the times – The Death of Politics

Posted by Jesse on February 8, 2009

From Liberty, as it is

This is not a time of radical, revolutionary politics. Not yet. Unrest, riot, dissent and chaos notwithstanding, today’s politics is reactionary. Both left and right are reactionary and authoritarian. That is to say: Both are political. They seek only to revise current methods of acquiring and wielding political power. Radical and revolutionary movements seek not to revise but to revoke. The target of revocation should be obvious. The target is politics itself.

Radicals and revolutionaries have had their sights trained on politics for some time. As governments fail around the world, as more millions become aware that government never has and never can humanely and effectively manage men’s affairs, government’s own inadequacy will emerge, at last, as the basis for a truly radical and revolutionary movement. In the meantime, the radical-revolutionary position is a lonely one. It is feared and hated, by both right and left — although both right and left must borrow from it to survive. The radical-revolutionary position is libertarianism, and its socioeconomic form is Laissez-faire capitalism.
