This blog is a commentary on contemporary business, politics, economics, society, and culture, based on the values of Reason, Rational Self-Interest, and Laissez-Faire Capitalism. Its intellectual foundations are Ayn Rand's philosophy of Objectivism and the theory of the Austrian and British Classical schools of economics as expressed in the writings of Mises, Böhm-Bawerk, Menger, Ricardo, Smith, James and John Stuart Mill, Bastiat, and Hazlitt, and in my own writings.

don’t do it. That’s the meaning of making something a matter of law and making
laws control all aspects of life.
are enforced by men with clubs and guns, ready to use them in the face of
resistance. At the same time, the individual human life is valueless in the
eyes of Marxists/Socialists. It’s an egg that must be broken “to make an omelet,”
the omelet being socialism.
Sanders and Warren need to fear each other, the American people need to fear
them both. Both advocate a philosophy fit for gun-slinging, club-wielding
