Jan 19 News- Obama, Left/Right, Int’l Peace/War, Ahmadinejad on Honest Money

Posted by Jesse on January 19, 2009

Feature Article of the Day: Why Be Libertarian?

It is our view that a flourishing libertarian movement, a lifelong dedication to liberty can only be grounded on a passion for justice. Here must be the mainspring of our drive, the armor that will sustain us in all the storms ahead, not the search for a quick buck, the playing of intellectual games or the cool calculation of general economic gains. And, to have a passion for justice, one must have a theory of what justice and injustice are – in short, a set of ethical principles of justice and injustice, which cannot be provided by utilitarian economics.

Quotes of the Day:

Imperialism is an institution under which one nation asserts the right to seize the land or at least to control the government or resources of another people. – John T Flynn

The followers are cajoled into devotion by the leader’s pretended concern or admiration for them or for some cause in which they believe, by a pretense of virtue; it is mostly humbuggery…. [T]he role of leader requires performances in defiance of truth, ranging from the mild and on the whole inoffensive metaphorical exaggerations…to actions that are carefully written out of autobiographies because they are shamefully dishonest or even criminal.Humbuggery and Manipulation: The Art of Leadership (1988)

  • Joshua Frank talks with Scott Horton about ‘shedding the labels’ of left and right and finding the priorities that will enable new alliances to forge ahead and hold the lines against the inevitable encroachments of life and liberty, past present and future. And more specifically the role of America and the Obama administration in world affairs, how they may play out, and how events are reported on and perceived.

Antiwar News reports:

  1. Hamas Leader Declares Victory
  2. NATO’s SecGen says Karzai is a problem.

Some recent blog posts and articles of note:

Mike Rozeff breaks down the various forms of looting, how and why it occurs, the problems of the commons, and why centralized power is dangerous to liberty whereas the free market provides a better foundation with which to promote it.
