The State of the Empire

AntiWar.Com
by Justin Raimondo

01/29/10

Economically ruinous, culturally poisonous, socially disruptive, and subversive of the Constitution, the very idea of imperialism is antithetical to our traditions and alien to the American character. That is why our more recent wars of conquest (Vietnam, Iraq, Afghanistan) have been so wrenching, domestically, and the cause of such bitter controversy: they required the sort of self-violation that is usually restricted to mental patients who maim themselves habitually...

How to fix the jobs problem

LewRockwell.Com
by Llewellyn H. Rockwell, Jr.

01/29/10

Read any account of economic history from the late middles ages through the 19th century and try to find any evidence of the existence of unemployment. You won’t find it. Why is that? Because long-term unemployment is a fixture of the modern world created by the interventionist state. ‘We’ try to cure it and ‘we’ ended up doing the opposite...

Obama’s campaign finance rhetoric is misleading

FreedomWorks
by BPeck

01/28/10

Actions will always speak louder than words. For instance, President Barack Obama preaching a minimal role for corporations in funding campaigns isn’t ethical when in fact he himself was a major recipient of corporate funds leading up to his presidential election in 2008. In fact, according to The Washington Examiner, ‘Obama’s $995,000 from employees and executives at investment bank giant Goldman Sachs is the most a politician has raised from a single company since the 2001 campaign finance reform law’...

Who are we a culture of freedom or politics?

Libertarian News Examiner
by Garry Reed

01/28/10

Corporations don’t threaten our freedoms; government threatens our freedoms. Government has the power, not corporations. Government has the guns. Government has the police, the prosecutors, the jailers, the military. They have the physical ability to exert as much or as little ‘influence’ over all of society, corporations included, as they care to exert. Corporations have none of that. They can exercise influence over political culture only to the extent that politicians deign to allow them to exercise it...

You wanted populism?

The New Republic
by Noam Scheiber

01/28/10

Going into the State of the Union, it was easy to expect a speech steeped in populism. The consensus was that the White House had misjudged the country’s anger over bailouts and unemployment, all of which boiled over in Massachusetts. And so, beginning last Wednesday, Obama went out of his way to channel that anger at Wall Street. ‘We’re about to get into a big fight with the banks,’ the president told George Stephanopoulos the day after the Kennedy seat went Republican...

Populism, left and right

AntiWar.Com
by Justin Raimondo

04/19/10

Not content with going overseas in search of monsters to destroy, the current administration and its supporters are conjuring them right here at home. In any case, creating monsters, both real and imagined, is the one thing the US government is really good at. Our elites hate populism in all its forms simply because it threatens their power, their privileges, their pelf and their prestige: populism is by definition a revolt against the elites, in government and society. Worst of all, from a ruling class perspective, is populism of the ‘antigovernment’ variety, because it threatens the source and symbol of their power: what Murray Rothbard called the Welfare-Warfare State...

The New American Century

Video Documentary

The film looks for the true reasons behind the Afghanistan and Iraq wars, whose unfolding is described in chilling detail in a document called "Project for the New American Century", published in the year 2,000, that seems to have served as the actual blueprint for such dramatic events.
