Why Democratic Socialists Are Wrong About “Profit”

Why Democratic Socialists Are Wrong About “Profit”

https://youtu.be/Eg9OIssCmsc One of the most incredible attributes of free markets is the ability to harmonize our self-interests with the interests of greater society. Contrary to the popular demonization of profits as extraction of surplus value, profits in freed markets actually represent the adding of value to society. Making a profit in free markets requires one to combine or transform some good(s) in such a way that its resulting configuration is valued more by the consumer than the cost of labor and original materials, including time, used to produce it. - Spontaneous Order: The...

The Voluntaryist Handbook: Self-Ownership and Its Implications

https://youtu.be/xGrh6D3o8Kw One need look no further than to the examples of North and South Korea or East and West Germany to see that the freer people are, the wealthier they can become through mutually beneficial voluntary exchange. These two controlled experiments, where mostly free markets competed against mostly state-controlled economies, have yielded an undeniable result: the more free, the more prosperous. - The Voluntaryist Handbook: Essays, Excerpts, and Quotes, p. 301 BitChute Minds Archive Flote Spotify

How the Criminal Lockdowns Hurt Small Business (feat. Carol Roth)

How the Criminal Lockdowns Hurt Small Business (feat. Carol Roth)

https://youtu.be/Hxdz6AgAmgs ... one of the most significant ways in which the government could aid the poor is by removing its own direct roadblocks from their productive energies. Thus, minimum wage laws disemploy the poorest and least productive members of the population. Government privileges to trade unions enable them to keep the poorer and minority-group workers from productive and high-wage employment. And licensing laws, the outlawing of gambling, and other government restrictions prevent the poor from starting small businesses and creating jobs on their own. Murray N. Rothbard,...

Free Market Capitalism Works – Real World Examples by Thomas Sowell

https://youtu.be/-QKRNuYO8aY Similar comparisons could be made between Burma and Thailand, the former having had the higher standard of living before instituting socialism, and the latter a much higher standard of living afterwards. Other countries—India, Germany, China, New Zealand, South Korea, Sri Lanka—have experienced sharp upturns in their economies when they freed those economies from many government controls and relied more on prices to allocate resources. As of 1960, India and South Korea were at comparable economic levels but, by the late 1980s, South Korea’s per capita income was...

The Voluntaryist Handbook: A Collection of Essays, Excerpts, and Quotes

https://youtu.be/YD6XGXaKi0Y Many real criticisms apply to the free market: greed, envy, dog-eat-dog mentalities, short-sightedness, etc. The problem with all of those criticisms is that they apply many times over to the state, since, by definition, the state does not face competition and one cannot opt out of funding it. While voluntarily funded competing organizations may have shortcomings, they are preferable to the coercively funded monopolies of the state. - The Voluntaryist Handbook: A Collection of Essays, Excerpts, and Quotes (p.1) Buy the Paperback Free pdf on Odysee BitChute Minds...

How Could Anyone Be an Anarchist?

How Could Anyone Be an Anarchist?

The following excerpts are from the Keith Knight - Don’t Tread on Anyone podcast ***** Keith Knight: A lot of criticism of the free market is not unique to the free market. For example, there is greed, there is dog-eat-dog competition, it can disrupt & disorder, and there's no guarantee of my safety. Well, that all applies ten-fold to the state because you can't opt out of funding them and they have no competition. Do you think there's anything that uniquely applies negatively to the free market that justifies the existence of the state? Art Carden: I really don't think there is. I tend...

Hotter Than the Sun: Time to Abolish Nuclear Weapons (feat. Scott Horton)

https://youtu.be/HKltpRa7a-8 ... the use of nuclear or similar weapons, or the threat thereof, is a crime against humanity for which there can be no justification...it is precisely the characteristic of modern weapons that they cannot be used selectively, cannot be used in a libertarian manner. Therefore, their very existence must be condemned, and nuclear disarmament becomes a good to be pursued for its own sake. Indeed, of all the aspects of liberty, such disarmament becomes the highest political good that can be pursued in the modern world. For just as murder is a more heinous crime...
