After the USSR, the USA Collapses

Everything has an end, so do empires, both the United States and the Soviet Union. Washington has outrageously favoured a small camarilla of ultra-billionaires. Now it has to face its old demons, prepare for secession and civil war. Each of the two camps that are fighting in the United States, the Jacksonians and the Neopuritans, wants to end the other. The former speak of insurrection, while the latter want repression, but...

Separating the Men from the Boys

I have stumbled across a book review written by Lester Hunt.  He is reviewing The Ethics of Liberty, by Murray Rothbard.  The review was written in 1983, just after Rothbard’s book was published.  Hunt begins by putting Rothbard’s libertarianism in context: Though he is an economist by training, the ultimate basis for the form of anarchism Rothbard defends is not economic but moral. Rothbard’s anarchism is based on natural...

Commit

Commit. Commit yourself in all the most important things in your life, whatever those things may be. A common distinction between conservatism and libertarianism is a lack of commitment. A common distinction between progressivism and conservatism is a lack of commitment. That’s not always bad. There is nothing wrong with a lack of commitment to bad things. There is everything wrong with a life absent commitment. How easy it...

Biden’s Inaugural Address

You can watch Biden’s speech, straining through razor wire, views obscured by military helmets and SWAT vans, nervously looking over your shoulder.  Or you can get the highlights here, because I’m pretty sure what he will say. Fellow Americans, Kamala and I (and Jill) are so happy to be standing up today to take over the country, I mean, lead the nation.  It’s a great day, and I thank you, and our great military, for being...

America’s First Revolution Is Happening Now

Hear me out and you will understand the title. There is a difference between a rebellion and a revolution.  A rebellion is what occurred in the thirteen colonies in the late 18th century.  A revolution is what occurred in Russia in 1917. A rebellion occurred in the colonies, because the subjects of the king in the colonies were treated differently constitutionally and in law from subjects of the king in England. The...

The Options

About 24 hours from now we will know for sure whether the “kraken” is coming – or never was. In the case of the latter, which seems likely, we had better get ready – intellectually and actually. “We” being anyone who is likely to become a target for Joe’s special attention – which means, in practical terms, anyone who isn’t a parasite, or who wants to be let alone when it comes to personal choices such as whether to join a...
