When Goods Don’t Cross Borders, Soldiers Do

pexels imprensa agruban® 10501127

The great free trade and most astute defender of liberty from France Frederic Bastiat said "Trade barriers constitute isolation; isolation gives rise to hatred, hatred to war, and war to invasion." These words ring more true than ever as Russia invades Ukraine and the illusionary veil of peace is removed, a distant but ever existing reality hits home. The reality that conflict and not peace is the true nature of human existence, it always was and it always will be. This conflict is born out of the innumerable differences that exist amongst us as different members of the human race. While...

No Radiation Leaks After Fighting at Ukrainian Nuclear Power Plant

nuclear power plant cooling tower power plant energy

Fighting has erupted on the grounds of Ukraine’s Zaporizhzhia nuclear power plant – the largest of its kind in Europe – with Kiev accusing Russian forces of setting fire to a building on the site with artillery blasts before they seized the facility. Radiation in the area remains at normal levels, officials say. Citing Ukrainian authorities, the UN’s International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) issued a press release on Thursday noting that Russian tanks and infantry had broken through a line of defense outside the town of Enerhodar, which encompasses the nuclear site, and were advancing on...

12/2/21 Patricia Hynes Explains How the US Military Poisoned Its Own Soldiers

Scott interviews Patricia Hynes about a piece she wrote back in 2017 highlighting the devastation caused by burn pits on American military bases over the last thirty years. Scott wanted to discuss this now because the Federal Government has finally started looking for ways to help the veterans exposed to these toxic fumes.

11/12/21 Daniel Larison on Iran, Sanctions and Great Power Competition

Scott brings Daniel Larison back to the show to discuss a handful of articles he’s written recently for Antiwar.com. First they discuss his piece pointing out that there is no legal basis for any action the U.S. takes against Iran, a fact that ought to be brought up more in our public discourse. Scott and Larison also discuss how American foreign policy itself is a rather large incentive for Iran to become a nuclear power. We’ve killed leaders who gave up their nukes. And those who have them, we tend to just criticize from afar. Next they tackle sanctions. The pain caused by American...

The Y2K Bug: How Government Creates a Panic

1 jwyqfpa8epiekrlj ouwiq

While I was not alive to see the Y2K panic, looking back to it has always shined a light on how panics start and how often they are “making a mountain out of a molehill." In the case of Y2K, the blame falls squarely in the lap of the government. Or more accurately, the governments of the world. For those unaware of the Y2K phenomion, computers before the 2000s had laughably small memory sizes. This forced computer programmers to scrape the “bottom of the barrel” for megabytes by shortening code. This led to years of computers being identified by only the last two digits of the year,...

George Bush’s Damnable Afghan War Lies

amcon repost

Former President George W. Bush is bewailing President Joe Biden’s plan to withdraw all U.S. troops from Afghanistan. Bush told Fox News last week, “I’m also deeply concerned about the sacrifices of our soldiers, and our intelligence community, will be forgotten,” after the war ends. Unfortunately, the vast majority of the American media has already forgotten how Bush’s lies turned U.S. intervention in Afghanistan into a quagmire that pointlessly killed and maimed thousands of American soldiers. After Al Qaeda hijacked four airplanes on September 11, 2001, wreaking death and destruction...

Looking Towards a Productive, Robotic Future

pexels luis j 2085831

One argument against the idea of technological unemployment, offered by many people who today sincerely style themselves as leading defenders of the free market, goes that automation will create more jobs than it destroys but due to the nature of the market, the nature of those jobs is, if not fundamentally unknowable, functionally indescribable for the purposes of the argument over automation. How could a person a hundred years ago, the reasoning goes, predict the existence of jobs like “app developer,” “nuclear engineer,” or “diversity and inclusion consultant”? The jobs of the future...
