The Most Important Graph in the World & Why Socialists Hate It

https://youtu.be/2QrYDV9QFTg (Source: Mark Perry at the American Institute for Economic Research) Over that period (1980-2018), the world’s population rose by 71.2 percent, yet the average working time required to earn enough money to buy 50 kinds of energy, food, raw materials, and metals fell by 71.6 percent. Put differently, the amount of effort required to buy 1 basket of the 50 commodities in 1980 bought 3.5 baskets in 2018. As we will explain, abundance occurs when the nominal hourly income increases faster than the nominal price of a resource. Furthermore, when the abundance of...

Making Governments Compete for You: Free Cities Foundation

https://youtu.be/AQ2zjwh8ehs Any statute or administrative regulation necessarily makes actions illegal that are not overt initiations of crimes or torts according to libertarian theory. Every statute or administrative rule is therefore illegitimate and itself invasive and a criminal interference with the property rights of noncriminals. – Murray N. Rothbard, Ph.D., Economic Controversies (2011, Mises Institute), p. 406. BitChute Archive Flote Spotify

10 Debunked Conspiracy Theories Democrats Still Believe!

https://youtu.be/DG99R2dB8eg The problem with political decisions isn’t that most of us don’t get our own way. It’s also that these decisions are usually imposed on us against our will, by threats of violence...Democracy, as we practice it, is unjust. We expose innocent people to high degrees of risk because we put their fate in the hands of ignorant, misinformed, irrational, biased, and sometimes immoral decision makers. – Jason Brennan, Ph.D., Against Democracy (2016, Princeton University Press), pp. 230, 240.

How to End the Culture War

How to End the Culture War

The following is a section from The Voluntaryist Handbook, organized by Keith Knight. There exist two blatant contradictions which roughly ninety-nine percent of intellectuals, journalists, and voters erroneously believe. On the one hand, they say that the free market must be regulated in order to prevent monopolies. It is assumed that these monopolies would have such great power over the market that their customers would be forced to settle for products far more expensive than, and inferior to, those that would be offered under competitive market conditions. On the other hand, these...

Unifying the Masses Against the Psychopathic Deep State (feat. James Corbett)

https://youtu.be/ps4zBwGu8MU Is it really a surprise that as the government gets bigger and bigger and bigger, everything in life becomes more and more hyper-political? When you think about it, right, there are such profound differences that people have... you will have right now in this audience... a Christian sitting next to an atheist, the most profound difference in belief: one person believes that the person next to them is going to burn in a pit of Hell forever, and that atheist looks over at you and believes you are delusional. But you’re fine. Like, you’re not going to war, because...

The Utilitarian Case for Voluntaryism

https://youtu.be/mO0Wi-elguk If I try to take something from you, you will resist, imposing costs on both of us in the form of property damage and bodily harm, in addition to the cost of security you may incur to prevent future acts of coercion. It’s not just that voluntary acts tend to raise total utility and coercive acts have no such tendency; coercive acts actually tend to decrease total utility. - Danny Duchamp, The Voluntaryist Handbook, p. 89 Danny Duchamp creates essays and videos on philosophy, economics and politics from a consequentialist libertarian perspective.

The Brief Case for Pacifism – Bryan Caplan, Ph.D.

The Brief Case for Pacifism – Bryan Caplan, Ph.D.

  “My case for pacifism, to recap, comes down to three simple premises. The first two are empirical: Premise #1: The short-run costs of war are clearly awful. [Empirical claim about immediate effects of war]. Premise #2: The long-run benefits of war are highly uncertain. [Empirical claim about people’s ability to accurately forecast the long-run effects of war]. These empirical claims imply pacifism when combined with a bland moral premise: Premise #3: For a war to be morally justified, the expected long-run benefits have to substantially exceed its short-run costs. [Moral claim,...

The State is the Health of War

https://youtu.be/WnvtYw_QKQE Critics often dismiss private law by alleging that disputes between enforcement agencies would lead to combat — even though this happens between governments all the time! In truth, the incentives for peaceful resolution of disputes would be far greater in market anarchy than the present system. Combat is very expensive, and private companies take much better care of their assets than government officials take care of their subjects’ lives and property. - Robert P. Murphy, Ph.D., Chaos Theory (p. 22) This is a clip from my appearance on Conflicts of Interest with...
