Government Itself is Immoral – James Corbett

Government Itself is Immoral – James Corbett

For example, consider slavery. Slavery is a system in which a nonviolent human being must labor for another under the threat of aggressive violence. For Rothbard, slavery is unjust because it violates the non-aggression principle. Therefore, slavery must be illegal. Now consider the case of drinking alcohol. Although it may be morally reprehensible and bad for one’s health, drinking alcohol
does not involve the use of violence against a nonviolent human being. Therefore, drinking alcohol must be legal. In this manner, Rothbard uses the non-aggression test to determine whether any act is just or unjust and must be legal or illegal.

Although the non-aggression principle itself has never been controversial in the history of thought, its implications can be shocking for the uninitiated. For example, consider the case of taxation. A tax is a payment that government extracts from a human being under the threat of aggressive violence. To Rothbard, taxation is unjust because it violates the non-aggression principle. Any logically consistent thinker who accepts the principle must reject taxation.

Natural Law Anarchism. Mark Passio and Keith Knight

Since the nature of man is such that each individual must use his mind to learn about himself and the world, to select values, and to choose ends and means in order to survive and flourish, the right to self-ownership gives each man the right to perform these vital activities without being hampered and restricted by coercive molestation.

Statist Finds Out He’s A Voluntaryist! – Larken Rose & Hodey Johns

Statist Finds Out He’s A Voluntaryist! – Larken Rose & Hodey Johns

The state cannot be fought by simply boycotting it, as a private business could, because an aggressor does not respect the negative judgement revealed by boycotts.  But it also simply cannot be fought by countering its aggression with defensive violence, because the state’s aggression is supported by public opinion.  Thus, everything depends on a change in public opinion………In order for the state to fail in reaching its objective, no more and no less than a change in general public opinion must take place: state-supportive action must come to be regarded and branded as immoral because it is support given to an organization of institutionalized crime.

The Teachings of Brave Minds. Michael Tsarion & Keith Knight

The Teachings of Brave Minds. Michael Tsarion & Keith Knight

Man, in particular, must use his mind to learn, to formulate his goals and the means to attain them. He has no inborn instinct to guide him automatically to the correct choices, as the bird or the salmon are supposed to be guided…. animals are bound within the environment in which they find themselves. If a group of animals are adapted only to the environment of a certain area, X, and they are forced to leave X they will die. They must then defend this environment to the death.  Man, on the contrary, is unique among living beings for his capacity to change his environment, to leave, transform, and alter his circumstances on behalf of his own survival and progress. Man is not bound to a fixed plot of earth and all the environmental conditions upon it; he can move, he can build shelter against the elements, he can transform the earth, etc.

The Moral and Economic Case Against the Minimum Wage #FightAgainst15

The Moral and Economic Case Against the Minimum Wage #FightAgainst15

Minimum wage laws tragically generate unemployment, especially so among the poorest and least skilled or educated workers… a minimum wage, of course, does not guarantee any worker’s employment; it only prohibits, by force of law, anyone from being employed at the wage which would pay his employer to hire him. It therefore compels unemployment.

Democracy = Mob Rule By the Ignorant

It is no crime to be ignorant of economics, which is, aft er all, a specialized discipline and one that most people consider to be a “dismal science.” But it is totally irresponsible to have a loud and vociferous opinion on economic subjects while remaining in this state of ignorance.

Murray N. Rothbard 
Egalitarianism as a Revolt Against Nature, p. 202

 

…Hayek had to fall back on the importance of blindly obeying whatever social rules happened to have “evolved,” and his only feeble argument against intervention was that the government was even more irrational, and was even more ignorant, than individuals in the market economy.

Deception in War, Arming ISIS, & the Military Industrial Complex. Scott Horton & Keith Knight

A final word about conscription: of all the ways in which war aggrandizes the State, this is perhaps the most flagrant and most despotic. But the most striking fact about conscription is the absurdity of the arguments put forward on its behalf. A man must be conscripted to defend his (or someone else’s?) liberty against an evil State beyond the borders. Defend his liberty? How? By being coerced into an army whose very raison d’etre is the expunging of liberty, the trampling on all the liberties of the person, the calculated and brutal dehumanization of the soldier and his transformation into an efficient engine of murder at the whim of his “commanding officer”? Can any conceivable foreign State do anything worse to him than what “his” army is now doing for his alleged benefit? Who is there, O Lord, to defend him against his “defenders”?

Propaganda Analysis – FBI Document on Crystallizing Public Opinion

Propaganda Analysis – FBI Document on Crystallizing Public Opinion

In all societies, public opinion is determined by the intellectual classes, the opinion molders of society. For most people neither originate nor disseminate ideas and concepts; on the contrary, they tend to adopt those ideas promulgated by the professional intellectual classes, the professional dealers in ideas. Now, throughout history … despots and ruling elites of States have had far more need of the services of intellectuals than have peaceful citizens in a free society. For States have always needed opinion-molding intellectuals to con the public into believing that its rule is wise, good, and inevitable; into believing that the “emperor has clothes.”

“… there are two and only two ways of attaining wealth in society: (a) by production and voluntary exchange with others — the method of the free market; and (b) by violent expropriation of the wealth produced by others. The latter is the method of violence and theft. The former benefits all parties involved; the latter parasitically benefits the looting group or class at the expense of the looted.”

How to Wipe the Smirk Off the Face of Idiots Who Call You a “Conspiracy Theorist”

… government is always and everywhere the potential or actual aggressor against the rights and liberties of the people. Liberty, the source of all the fruits of civilization and human happiness, is ever liable to suffer the aggressions and encroachments of government, of power, the source from which war, tyranny, and impoverishment ever flow. Power always stands ready to conspire against liberty, and the only salvation is for the public to keep government within strictly limited bounds, and to be ever watchful, vigilant, and hostile to the inevitable tendencies of government power to encroach upon liberty.

Is Capitalism Sustainable? Mike Munger and Keith Knight

“The member of a contractual society is free because he serves others only in serving himself. What restrains him is only the inevitable natural phenomenon of scarcity.”

Ludwig von Mises

Human Action, p. 280; p. 283

 

…“markets “work” even if people are self-interested, because the dynamics of competition limit bad actions”….“The reason that we tolerate, or in some cases celebrate, capitalism is that entrepreneurs find ways to produce new products, new services, or new ways of making things that make consumers better off. Many of us would pay far more than the store price for clean water, wholesome food, cars that run for 200,000 miles, or cell phones that connect us to the entire world. Entrepreneurs think up the new goods or services, and competition drives down the price. The result is that many products not available even to the very wealthy in 1900 are now owned by all but the poorest among us.”

… I define anarchist society as one where there is no legal possibility for coercive aggression against the person or property of any individual. Anarchists oppose the State because it has its very being in such aggression, namely, the expropriation of private property through taxation, the coercive exclusion of other providers of defense service from its territory, and all of the other depredations and coercions that are built upon these twin foci of invasions of individual rights.

Introduction to Philosophy. James Harrigan & Keith Knight

Introduction to Philosophy. James Harrigan & Keith Knight

… in reviving and building on Aristotle, St. Thomas introduced and established in the Christian world a philosophy of natural law, a philosophy in which human reason is able to master the basic truths of the universe. In the hands of Aquinas as in Aristotle, philosophy, with reason as its instrument of knowledge, became once again the queen of the sciences. Human reason demonstrated the reality of the universe, and of the natural law of discoverable classes of entities. Human reason could know about the nature of the world, and it could therefore know the proper ethics for mankind. Ethics, then, became decipherable by reason.

Murray N. Rothbard

Amy Coney Barrett SCOTUS Testimony – Libertarian Lawyer Responds

Amy Coney Barrett SCOTUS Testimony – Libertarian Lawyer Responds

In the days of the Founding Fathers, no one believed that the Supreme Court, much less the Court on any given day; always spoke the last word on the Constitution. Every public official, indeed, almost every person, had his own view of constitutionality and was willing to battle for it. No one proposed to leave such vital matters up to nine oligarchic hacks in Washington.

Murray N. Rothbard
Irrepressible Rothbard, p. 304

… we have to rediscover not only the forgotten individualist Ninth Amendment, but also the radically decentralist Tenth Amendment, and the legal tradition and principles from which it stemmed. Dismantling the Leviathan State, a task embraced by all libertarians, must also invoke dismantling the nationalizing, centralizing, absolute oligarchy that constitutes the Supreme Court of the United States.

Murray N. Rothbard
Irrepressible Rothbard, p. 377

… the whole point of the Constitution was to bind the central government with chains of steel, to keep it tightly and strictly limited, so as to safeguard the rights and powers of the states, local communities, and individual Americans.  In the early years of the American Republic, no political leader or statesman waited for the Supreme Court to interpret the Constitution; and the Court did not have the monopoly of interpreting the Constitution or of enforcing it. Unfortunately, in practice, the federal judiciary is not “independent” at all. … … once we allow the Supreme Court to be the monopoly interpreter of governmental — and therefore of its own — power, eventual despotism by the federal government and its kept judiciary becomes inevitable. And that is precisely what has happened. From being the instrument of binding down and severely limiting the power of the federal Leviathan, the Supreme Court and the rest of the judiciary have twisted and totally transformed the Constitution into a “living” instrument and thereby a crucial tool of its own despotic and virtually absolute power over the lives of every American citizen.

Murray N. Rothbard
Making Economic Sense, p. 484

… absolute power must never be entrusted to a small oligarchy of men, especially Supreme Court judges, who are an unchecked oligarchy appointed for life. Before Federalist John Marshall began to amass all power in the Supreme Court, no one ever believed, even with the existence of such a court, that it has the last word on constitutionality.

Murray N. Rothbard
Irrepressible Rothbard, p. 376

… libertarians should welcome all the campaigns to question or impeach the Supreme Court …

Murray N. Rothbard
Libertarian Forum v. 1, p. 119

The idea that the death penalty never deters murder is almost self-evident hogwash. Th e abolition of the death penalty, was philosophic left-sentimentality, as well as juridical nonsense. Philosophically, a person who murders another forfeits his own right to life, on the principle that he who deprives others of rights deserves to lose his in proportion. Juridically, to say that the Constitutional prohibition of “cruel and unusual punishment” prohibits the death penalty flies in the face of the common use of that penalty at the time the Constitution was written, and aft er it was established.  No Founding Father issued a protest of alleged unconstitutionality. The Supreme Court argument that the death penalty is now “unusual” is purely a product of the success of left -wing jurists in recent years in stalling and blocking the use of capital punishment.  Allow the death penalty to flow freely in cases of murder and the punishment would soon no longer be “unusual.”

Murray N. Rothbard
Libertarian Forum v. 1, p. 458

10 Historical Myths Most Historians Still Believe! Sal the Agorist and Keith Knight

 

 

Looking at facts without the guidance of theory in their selection is virtually impossible.

Murray N. Rothbard
Classical Economics, p. 120

 

… I see history as centrally a race and conflict between “social power” — the productive consequence of voluntary interactions among men — and state power. In those eras of history when liberty — social power — has managed to race ahead of state power and control, the country and even mankind have flourished. In those eras when state power has managed to catch up with or surpass social power, mankind suffers and declines.

Murray N. Rothbard

Conceived in Liberty v. 1, p. 10; p. xvi

Trump Card – Summary, Analysis, and Criticisms

Trump Card – Summary, Analysis, and Criticisms

“This is capitalisms trump card.  It encourages creativity and empathy, and puts them at the service of the wants and needs of the people.The inequality the socialist left despises, isn’t created by the entrepreneur. It’s created by us.  The proud boast of Democratic socialism is that it puts the people in charge of the economy. What control do you have over the post office or the DMV? We vote in elections every two or four years, but as consumers we exercise our choices daily, directly through the market. The free market is far more reflective of popular consent, than democratic socialism. We don’t have to extend democracy from the political to the economic sphere, because we already have it.  Capitalism, not socialism, is the true form of social justice.”

– Dinesh D’Souza

4 Common Myths About Free Market Capitalism

4 Common Myths About Free Market Capitalism

… neither capitalists nor workers act in practice as if they are each members of monolithic, conflicting classes. On the contrary, capitalists persist in competing with each other, and workers likewise.

Murray N. Rothbard

Classical Economics, p. 383

 

… capitalists, being the peculiarly mobile and dynamic groups in society that can either flourish on the free market or try to obtain state privileges, are, then, particularly ill-suited to a homogeneous class analysis.

Murray N. Rothbard
Conceived in Liberty v. 1, p. 262; p. 252

 

The capitalist performs the function of saving money to buy the raw material, and then pays the laborers in advance of sale of the product to the eventual customers.

Murray N. Rothbard
Economic Controversies, p. 360

 

The actual world is one not of changeless “givens” but of incessant change and systemic uncertainty. Because of this uncertainty, the capitalist entrepreneur, who stakes assets and resources in attempting to achieve profits and avoid losses, becomes the crucial actor in the economic system …

Why Some Countries Are Wealthy, and Others Are Impoverished – Brennan and Mises

Why Some Countries Are Wealthy, and Others Are Impoverished – Brennan and Mises

… in a progressing economy, i.e., in an economy with increases in gross savings and investment, money wages and ground rents may well fall, but real wages and rents will rise.

Murray N. Rothbard
Man, Economy, and State with Power and Market, p. 526

 

When capital investment increases, and technology improves, the real wages of workers and the standard of living of consumers increase, even though they have contributed nothing to these advances. By simply continuing to work and consume, laborers and consumers receive the benefits of the inventions and investments of others without paying for them. So what must we infer from this? Are we all to wear sackcloth and ashes? If our neighbors are wiser, prettier, or happier, we all benefit in countless ways. So what must we do about it? Must we all be taxed to subsidize their beauty and wisdom?

Murray N. Rothbard 
Economic Controversies, pp. 478–79
