Mel Gibson's Crucifixion:

Dr. Chuck Baldwin

August 7, 2006:

While he does not condone Mel Gibson's unfortunate and wrong drunken remarks condemning Jews, Dr. Chuck Baldwin wishes that the Hollywood elites now unanimously attacking Gibson had some compassion and forgiveness for a man who created many brilliant films and dared to stand on his convictions.

 

Economics

 

The Worst Economics Article Ever?:

Dr. Robert P. Murphy

August 6, 2006:

Dr. Robert Murphy deals with a writer who cannot understand why her local grocery store sells food from all over the world when, in her view, local farmers should be the suppliers.

 

The Source of Prices (1949):

Ludwig von Mises

August 6, 2006:

Ludwig von Mises explains: "Prices are a market phenomenon.... There is no such thing as prices outside the market. Prices cannot be constructed synthetically, as it were." Read this essay about how consumers on the market are ultimately responsible for the way commodities are priced-- and how any intervention with this process can only worsen the results.

 

Filosofy

 

The Noneconomic Objections to Capitalism (1950):

Ludwig von Mises

August 6, 2006:

All those rejecting capitalism as an unfair system, wrote Ludwig von Mises, are deluded by their failure to comprehend what capital is, how it comes into existence, and how it is maintained — and what the benefits are which are derived from its employment in production processes.

 

Politics

 

What We Can Do:

Dr. Chuck Baldwin

August 4, 2006:

Dr. Chuck Baldwin offers some advice on how concerned individuals can educate themselves and participate in mending the current political situation for the better. Dr. Baldwin urges readers to depart from the mainstream in culture and politics and to seek truth and a return to adherence to the U. S. Constitution.

 

Globally Acceptable Truths in the Land of Eden:

Tom DeWeese

August 4, 2006:

Tom DeWeese details his e-mail exchange with Donald Sagar of the Eden Institute-- a radical and dangerous opponent of technology, science, and free markets. Mr. DeWeese contends that Sagar-- who is a representative to the United Nations for the Association for World Education-- is just one man in a massive U.N.-coordinated movement to restrict information flow to individuals worldwide so as to subvert them to centralized, global-government, "Sustainable Development" schemes.

 

No Liberals in My Foxhole!:

Alan Caruba

August 5, 2006:

Alan Caruba writes that in times of war, the last person you want in the foxhole with you is a liberal. They are always desperately looking for a white flag to wave. They are always trying to “understand” the enemy and excuse his bad behavior. Mr. Caruba uses as a prime example of this a recent article by Eugene Robinson opposing the Israeli retaliation against Hezbollah terrorists.

 

Exploiting Oil for Votes:

Alan Caruba

August 5, 2006:

Despite the U.S. Senate’s August vote to end the quarter century ban on offshore drilling, the Democrats could not resist recklessly exploiting the current price at the pumps and oil company profits for political gain while ignoring the most fundamental economics of our national dependence on this energy source. Alan Caruba warns us that gas prices will rise even further if Democrats have their way.

 

Israel's Peculiar Position (1968):

Eric Hoffer

August 7, 2006:

In this 1968 article, Eric Hoffer describes a situation which is essentially unchanged today: Israel is given a far lower standard of treatment by the "international community" than is any other country. What is permissible to any other country is not permissible to Israel or the Jews, and few in the world are moved when atrocities are committed against Israelis by their foes.

 

Iran Declares Its Nuclear Bad Intentions:

Alan Caruba

August 8, 2006:

Alan Caruba presents examples of Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's venomous and delusional rhetoric against Israel, Britain, and the United States. This is the language of a man preparing to use nuclear weapons against Israel, England and America. Waiting for him to do it is not an option.
 

"The masses favor socialism because they trust the socialist propaganda of the intellectuals. The intellectuals, not the populace, are molding public opinion."
