Smashing the UK’s Statist Mindset

Smashing the UK’s Statist Mindset

Mainstream British political thought processes contain an epidemic of dreadful reasoning. Witness the average political interaction between “popular” British parliamentarians and voters, think through the reasoning of the topics discussed, and you will know exactly what is lacking. Unlike the remnants that remain on the American political scene, talk of philosophy and deeper economic beliefs are extinct. The United Kingdom is gripped by an election which acts as the perfect situation for our leaders to breakdown their deeper beliefs so that voters can truly understand whether they identify...

A Libertarian Guide to the United Kingdom General Election

A Libertarian Guide to the United Kingdom General Election

The Prime Minister of the United Kingdom, Rishi Sunak, has finally announced there will be an election on July 4. This comes after incessant badgering from every part of the political spectrum, all of whom have been calling for an election for months. It was quite a sad spectacle when the prime minister walked out in front of Downing Street in the pouring rain and essentially fired the starting gun for the race for office. He turned around after making his first pitch of the election to reveal that he was absolutely drenched, looking like a damp rag who has seemingly accepted his fate of...

Britain’s ID Card Proponents Expose Their Own Naivety

Britain’s ID Card Proponents Expose Their Own Naivety

David Blunkett, the former United Kingdom Home Secretary, appeared on the Politics Live show this week and argued obstinately for the introduction of ID cards, saying “My guess is we will get ID cards under a Labour government." This is quite concerning since the next government is probably going to be Labour, who are currently 20% ahead in the polls. Blunkett claims that it will be easier to stop the illegal immigration issue with the introduction of ID cards, suggesting that migrants would need to show these ID cards to get access to work and other services. He has said that the opposition...

A Free Market Embraces Human Nature

A Free Market Embraces Human Nature

Much like the debate around being a glass half full or half empty person, there is split opinion over whether human nature is generally good or bad. Young people are more likely to view human nature as self-serving, unsympathetic, and narrow minded than older generations. In all likelihood, future generations will view each other way more pessimistically than any recent generation before them. The general population's view on human nature is extremely significant in the political arena since it will have a huge impact on the ideology you assign yourself, plus the methods you choose to spread...

What Is ‘Extremism’?

What Is ‘Extremism’?

Amidst protests in the United Kingdom that have been going on since October 7, there have been multiple allegations of extemists among the protestors intimidating, harassing, and scaring innocent people who are not involved in the demonstrations. It seems that even MPs are being intimidated, with the Speaker allegedly pushing a vote using a parliamentary procedure that has not been employed for years; he's allegedly been pressured by Labour leader Kier Starmer, who in turn has been allegedly pressured by the extreme wing of his party. In response to these events, Prime Minister Rishi Sunak...

Environmentalists Want to Doom the Developing World

Environmentalists Want to Doom the Developing World

Climate change and the environment are becoming top issues in most developed countries. People know that humans are contributing to climate change, so they demand action with more done to preserve our very fragile planet. In the United Kingdom, politicians are pushed more and more every day to put in place measures to achieve net zero emissions as soon as possible and at any cost. If you want to achieve it by 2050, the cost of net zero varies from a gross figure of £1.4 trillion to a much better sounding £12 billion a year. The lower estimates usually come to fruition through, shall we say,...

CPI Numbers Aren’t Just Bogus, They’re Oppressive to Individualism

CPI Numbers Aren’t Just Bogus, They’re Oppressive to Individualism

The British government and the BBC are celebrating that there has been “the first monthly fall in food prices since 2021” due to inflation remaining flat. It's being welcomed as a huge win in the government’s battle against inflation; they had set a target to halve inflation and they have done it! That's what you would think if you were a casual media viewer. No doubt we will hear from members of the government just how great this really is and how they should be lauded as the slayer of inflation. However, much like Tantalus attempting to sustain himself, government attempts to capture the...

Public vs Private Performance Standards

Public vs Private Performance Standards

There is an interesting paradigm in political culture where we seem to hold differing standards for private versus public entities. If you were to ask your average person walking down the street whether we should bail out a random, private company that is not performing well and will likely go out of business I think you’d be met with a resounding no. I agree with this; if a private company is failing it's because they are failing to run their business properly and whatever the reason may be, they are failing to provide the necessary value creation to stay afloat. However, if I were to ask...

Israel Winner of the 2003 Iraq Oil War

Israel Winner of the 2003 Iraq Oil War

From the Foreword by Lawrence B. Wilkerson: “[T]he debate over whether oil was a principal reason for the 2003 invasion has waxed and waned, with one camp arguing that it absolutely was, while the other argues the precise opposite.” “Mr. Vogler, himself a former...
