"Fama, Hansen, and Shiller"

When I learned about the 2013 recipients of the Economics "Nobel Prize" I immediately wondered what Austrian economists were thinking.  Per usual, the Mises Institute provided a quick answer.  See this misesmedia video discussing this topic.

Malala Yousafzai to the Predator: 'Drone Strikes Are Fueling Terrorism'

"That fact was conspicuously absent from the White House statements on the meeting." HAHAHA.

Oklahoma Doctors vs. Obamacare

As a practicing physician in the United States I cannot overstate just how radical the business model of the Surgery Center of Oklahoma actually is.  This ReasonTV video profiles this business.  I am currently brainstorming how to transplant this business model to my specialty of radiation oncology.

Elizabeth Warren's Recent Anti-Anarchy Diatribe

To my mind, it bears continuing to point out how utterly self-righteous, arrogant, uninformed, and undereducated Warren and those of her ilk -- most notably of late Harry Reid -- truly are.  And how desperate they seem to be getting in a vain attempt to prop up what perceived legitimacy their failing collectivist state system still possesses:

We Don't Need the State for Trade and Commerce to Flourish

The "shadow economy," where individuals do business on their own without registering with a state, paying taxes, and abiding by government regulations is massive. This type of trade is represented by self-reliance, improvisation, localism, rapid adaptation, and the bottom-up order that free exchange creates. Let market anarchy reign!

Killing Two Birds With One Stone

Anti-NSA activists have adopted a highway near the NSA's massive surveillance center in Utah. The activists have been protesting outside of the center for months and aren't going away any time soon.
 
Not only are they surrounding Big Brother's warehouse, they are also exposing the inefficiences and incompetence of government road "services" as well. These sacrosant roads - which, of course, only state violence can provide -  are virtually all maintained and cleaned by private groups and volunteers now anyway.
 
What poetic justice it is! These activists are killing two birds with one stone, further chipping away at Leviathan.

Journalists and the NSA Scandal

in

Sadness is the emotion I experience every time I am reminded of the naivete of mainstream journalists regarding the nature of the State.  This catoinstitutevideo (http://youtu.be/uyJQWz_g_bk) interview of Spencer Ackerman, The Guardian journalist, made me sad.  For the record, I did not weep.

"They Kidnapped Our Child": Why CPS Needs Transparency Now

This ReasonTV video (http://youtu.be/qX4is-1e2Kl) confirms that State "protective" services for children are never the answer.

"For Their Own Protection": Children in Long-Term Solitary Confinement

in

Long-term solitary confinement is torture.  You will not be surprised to learn, from this video, that the U.S. prison state regularly inflicts this torture upon children.  The State's excuse for torturing children is disturbingly banal: it is for their own good. 

This explains a lot

Adults who live in the "greatest country in the world" don't even have average literacy skills: http://nypost.com/2013/10/08/us-adults-are-dumber-than-the-average-human/
The trend is also obvious.  Aren't government schools just great?
