Domestic Imperialism: Nine Reasons I Left Progressivism

Domestic Imperialism: Nine Reasons I Left Progressivism

https://youtu.be/60KXH3k0cEo Governments provide many things, such as security, schools, intelligence gathering, and poverty assistance programs, but none of these are defining characteristics of governments. They can be provided by many nongovernment actors in society, and historically, they have been. What makes government a unique institution in society is its widely recognized right to achieve its ends via threats of violence against non-aggressors. This is why you would go to jail for trying to “tax” someone’s income, or if you attempted to “regulate” the commercial interactions of...

War is Theft Funded Mass Murder Based on Lies w/ Angela McArdle

War is Theft Funded Mass Murder Based on Lies w/ Angela McArdle

https://youtu.be/WVbPvUGlI_k To kill one man is to be guilty of a capital crime, to kill ten men is to increase the guilt tenfold, to kill a hundred men is to increase it a hundredfold. This the rulers of the earth all recognize, and yet when it comes to the greatest crime — waging war on another state — they praise it!... If a man on seeing a little black were to say it is black, but on seeing a lot of black were to say it is white, it would be clear that such a man could not distinguish black and white... So those who recognize a small crime as such, but do not recognize the wickedness of...

How Non-Capitalists Benefit From Capitalism w/ Johan Norberg

How Non-Capitalists Benefit From Capitalism w/ Johan Norberg

https://youtu.be/cR981Xk7WPs Free market capitalism is not really about capital, it is about handing control of the economy from the top to billions of independent consumers, entrepreneurs and workers, and allowing them to make their own decisions about what they think will improve their lives. So careless talk about ‘taking control of capitalism’ actually means that governments take control of citizens. - Johan Norberg, The Capitalist Manifesto Watch on BitChute

Is War Inevitable? Lessons From History w/ Scott Horton

https://youtu.be/5_dZBu3zJxw The chronic Middle East crisis goes hack--as do many crises--to World War I. The British, in return for mobilizing the Arab peoples against their oppressors of imperial Turkey, promised the Arabs their independence when the war was over. But, at the same time, the British government, with characteristic double-dealing, was promising Arab Palestine as a "National Home" for organized Zionism. These promises were not on the same moral plane: for in the former case, the Arabs were being promised their own land freed from Turkish domination; and in the latter, world...

The Case for Private Governance

The Case for Private Governance

https://youtu.be/OrMnU-xyz1Y A country club or a night club not only provide a physical space for leisure, but they also have rules of entry and conduct. The same is true of places of business or living like shopping malls, apartment complexes, stock exchanges, and financial intermediaries. eBay, for example, is a club that facilitates trade with reputation mechanisms and dispute resolution services. It evaluates the marginal benefits and marginal costs of having various rules or dispute resolution mechanisms and seeks to make its market as attractive as possible. American Express is another...

Former Public School Teacher Becomes an Anarcho-Capitalist!

https://youtu.be/VgWy_H6C7vU That two men have no more natural right to exercise any kind of authority over one, than one has to exercise the same authority over two. A man’s natural rights are his own, against the whole world; and any infringement of them is equally a crime, whether committed by one man, or by millions; whether committed by one man, calling himself a robber (or by any other name indicating his true character), or by millions, calling themselves a government. - Lysander Spooner, No Treason (Part 1, Sec 2) Jack Lloyd is a multimedia content producer for liberty.

Propaganda: Using Fear to Justify Tyranny

https://youtu.be/mrsb5cE_1jo ...[W]e human beings, as social animals, need individual freedom to fully flourish. The equation is simple: individual freedom = social cooperation = individual and social flourishing. Many corollaries follow. To pick one, the freedom to choose with whom we will cooperate entails competition among those who wish to cooperate with any given individual. – Sheldon Richman, What Social Animals Owe to Each Other Watch on BitChute
