Freedom Works -> Deny Statism

Mises on War

War…is harmful, not only to the conquered but to the conqueror. Society has arisen out of the works of peace; the essence of society is peacemaking. Peace and not war is the father of all things. Only economic action has created the wealth around us; labor, not the profession of arms, brings happiness. Peace builds, war destroys. (Socialism, p. 59)

Question – what is up?

Posted by Jesse on March 12, 2009

Has this post degenerated? Or are we merely revealing the fundamentals? The nation is confronting the excesses and looking for leadership and concrete solutions to the problems and losses in prosperity and civil liberties that have been exposed – slowly but surely. Do we not need to know the function of government before we can allocate resources to it? The impetus of my arguments drive at the notion that the fundamentals in gov’t and “the economy” are being assumed, but not audited. Which is why people that I listen to for leadership make the claims that these measures we see being proposed by so many (in the three branches of gov’t) are not going to fix the problems but exacerbate them. This is why Ron Paul always stresses that we cannot address these issues without confronting the role of government in our lives. That’s why he is my President, by choice.

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.
