Historical Analysis

 

Frederic Bastiat on Government:
Dr. Gary M. Galles

March 27, 2003:
Dr. Gary M. Galles recalls words of wisdom from a classical French champion of laissez-faire economics, a man who courageously exposed the fallacies behind government interventionism and redistributionism and the double bind into which these policies inherently place the people of a nation.

 

Of "Liberty and Justice for All": The American Eugenics Movement:

Anna Kaluzny

April 14, 2003:
When pseudo-science is employed to justify collectivist and irrationalist prejudices, state and public-sanctioned persecution results. This is not a mere phenomenon of today's pharmacratic paradigm. Anna Kaluzny presents a thorough portrayal of a past movement of prejudicial rationalization that, hopefully, will serve as a lesson learned from history.

Orwell's Warning: Newspeak:

G. Stolyarov II

April 16, 2003:

Politics

 

Smashing Windows for Peace:

Dr. Robert Garmong

March 26, 2003:

Although there is nothing fundamentally unlawful about expressing even the mistaken ideas of those opposed to the Iraq War, writes Dr. Robert Garmong, the protesters' current techniques amount to coercing others into falling in line with their obnoxious bickering.

 

They Hate Us, Too:

Peter Schwartz
