Why Democratic Socialists Are Wrong About “Profit”

profits

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...

Biden-Cheney 2024

2022 01 12 08 12

  The Cheney democrats are making there case. If Israel can do it - so can we. So Biden-Cheney is not such a crazy idea? I asked. “Not at all,” said Levitsky. “We should be ready to talk about Liz Cheney as part of a blow-your-mind Israeli-style fusion coalition with Democrats. It is a coalition that says: ‘There is only one overriding goal right now — that is saving our democratic system.’”...

Salafis Throwing Bombs: How American and British Planners Partnered With Al-Qaeda Affiliated Groups At the Start of the Syrian Civil War

2011 syria protests.svg

Introduction In the mainstream view, al-Qaeda did not play a role in the Syria conflict until Islamic State of Iraq (ISI) leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi dispatched his deputy, Abu Muhammad al-Jolani, to Syria in August 2011 to establish a wing of the group there, called Jabhat al-Nusra, or the Nusra Front. Additionally, al-Qaeda allegedly did not carry out any military operations until December 2011 and did not announce its establishment until January 2012. However, there is evidence that al-Qaeda affiliated militants were involved in the Syrian conflict much earlier. Saudi intelligence...

For One Day, Protestors Stopped the War Machine

coservative protestors 2013 dsc 0034

I’ve attended most of the major antiwar protests in Washington since 9/11. At a 2005 protest, a cop tried to whack me on the head with a wooden pole. At a 2007 protest, I snapped a picture showing George W. Bush hanging next to the U.S. Capitol. But my favorite protest was a potent little ruckus that I almost missed. On a sunny late summer day in 2013, I ambled to downtown Washington to hike with a bunch of folks who enjoyed bantering as much as I did. The route for the jaunt started on the National Mall, passing by the Smithsonian, heading toward the World War II Memorial and points...

The Conspiracy Theory of History – Murray N. Rothbard, Ph.D. & George Carlin

https://youtu.be/hBu7Kxx-roQ THE conscious and intelligent manipulation of the organized habits and opinions of the masses is an important element in democratic society. Those who manipulate this unseen mechanism of society constitute an invisible government which is the true ruling power of our country. We are governed, our minds are molded, our tastes formed, our ideas suggested, largely by men we have never heard of. - Edward Bernays, Propaganda (1928) p.1 Odysee BitChute Minds Flote Spotify...

If That Ain’t The Most Soviet Thing…

Guys, check out this screed against a payroll tax cut at CNN.com. Their awesome points: Trump wants it. Some Republicans and Democrats don't want it. Some people say it won't "boost" the economy now. It won't help people who don't have jobs. There's still a virus, and payroll tax cuts can't change that fact, so there! Some people say direct welfare payments are always preferable to tax cuts. And of course: how are we going to afford all those direct welfare payments if we cut tax revenue? I tell ya what....
