ANYTHING PEACEFUL

Private Money Gets Ripped on bankrate.com

FEBRUARY 25, 2010 by PAUL CWIK

Yesterday I was looking at www.cnbc.com and there was an article on private money.  I thought , “Excellent, the work of the Austrians is starting to get through.” 

Yes, I was wrong again.  Apparently, if you don’t understand a concept, it is better to push it to the extreme and then make fun of it.  I find this attempt at debate shameful. 

It just shows that there is still a long way to go.

CURRENT ISSUE

April 2014

Around the world, people are struggling to throw off authoritarianism, with deeply mixed results. From Egypt to Venezuela, determined people build networks to overthrow their regimes, but as yet we have not learned to live without Leviathan. In this issue, Michael Malice and Gary Dudney discuss their glimpses inside totalitarian regimes, while Sarah Skwire and Michael Nolan look at how totalitarian regimes grind down the individual--and how individuals fight back. Plus, Jeffrey Tucker identifies a strain in libertarianism that, left unchecked, could reduce even our vibrant movement to something that is analogous to the grim aesthetic of architectural brutalism. The struggle for our lives and freedom is a struggle for beauty; it begins inside each of us.
