Noam Chomsky Articles, Libertarian News, Being Libertarian, OpEd News

Unfortunately, no single news source tells the whole truth, so I have been forced to use articles from both libertarian and leftist sources to get to the truth. I urge readers to go through the articles, read them for yourselves and come to your own conclusions. I am presenting stuff you can’t get in mainstream news here at my blog. Noam Chomsky is somebody who has done some deep thinking about current events. To open links to another page, R-click on the link to open.

    New Jersey May Renew Push to Legalize Marijuana in 2019 Recent comments from Governor Phil Murphy and Senate President Steve Sweeney suggest one final legislative effort to legalize marijuana in 2019. “I think I’ve been consistent that I hoped we could have one more shot at this,” Murphy told reporters last week. “Getting something to […] The post Mid-Atlantic States Enact Historic Reforms, But Remain Stalled on Legalization appeared first on The Libertarian Institute.

  • Why No Congressional Investigation into Epstein’s Intelligence Connections?
    With convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein now dead, the Justice Department has launched an investigation into prison procedures that allowed him to commit suicide. Meanwhile, women who were sexually abused or raped by Epstein when they were minors are continuing civil actions against Epstein’s estate. But why no congressional investigation into Epstein’s relationship, if any, […] The post Why No Congressional Investigation into Epstein’s Intelligence Connections? appeared first on The Libertarian Institute.

  • Siege at Ruby Ridge: The Forgotten History of the ATF Shootout That Started a Militia Movement
    The Siege at Ruby Ridge is often considered a pivotal date in American history. The shootout between Randy Weaver and his family and federal agents on August 21, 1992, is one that kicked off the Constitutional Militia Movement and left America with a deep distrust of its leadership – in particular then-President George H.W.

  • Red Flags Is All They Will Ever See
    With both the left and right calling for supposed “Red Flag Laws”, we have to take a step back and look at what the State is trying to accomplish here.  Lindsey Graham said that “The Second Amendment is not a suicide pact.”  The politicians say they are concerned with dangerous people having “easy” access to […] The post Red Flags Is All They Will Ever See appeared first on The Libertarian Institute.

  • Know Your Ruby Ridge Apologists
    Books have been written about the ATF/Marshals Service and FBI actions at Ruby Ridge so  great detail is not needed here. Randy Weaver’s 14-year-old son, Sammy, and his wife Vicki were killed by government bullets. One US Marshall was shot and killed.  When Weaver and his family moved to Idaho (about 40 miles from the […] The post Know Your Ruby Ridge Apologists appeared first on The Libertarian Institute.

  • Why Facts and Data Are Less Persuasive Than Moral Appeals
    When’s the last time you heard somebody say: “that statistical table really changed my view of how society should be organized”? Probably never. That’s because facts don’t persuade, but emotions do. People’s views are shaped by their moral intuitions first, reasoning and data come afterwards as a means to support their initial gut instincts about […] The post Why Facts and Data Are Less Persuasive Than Moral Appeals appeared first on The Libertarian Institute.

  • Are Recessions Inevitable?
    Stocks fell last week following news that the yield curve on Treasury notes had inverted. This means that a short-term Treasury note was paying higher interest rates than long-term Treasury note. An inverted yield curve is widely seen as a sign of an impending recession. Some economic commentators reacted to the inverted yield curve by […] The post Are Recessions Inevitable? appeared first on The Libertarian Institute.

  • If Deficits Are This Huge Now, What Happens When the Recession Hits?
    The Treasury Department released new budget deficit numbers this week, and with two months still to go in the fiscal year, 2019’s budget deficit is the highest its been since the US was still being flooded with fiscal stimulus dollars back in 2012.

Being Libertarian

  • Misconceptions of Real Libertarians
    "These arguments aren’t very convincing. What should matter the most is the truth, not ideological purity. If someone makes an argument, responding with “That’s not a libertarian position” or “You’re not a real libertarian for believing that” doesn’t actually rebut the argument." The post Misconceptions of Real Libertarians appeared first on Being Libertarian.
  • People Need To Learn How To Hate Each Other Peacefully – Opting Out
    Politics isn’t the only thing that divides people. Even in a world without politics, we would find some way to disagree with each other, and this is fine, natural and expected, We are not just separated by our political opinions but deep-seated cultural values that tragically might not be possible to bridge.  First, we have […] The post People Need To Learn How To Hate Each Other Peacefully – Opting Out appeared first on Being Libertarian.
  • Isolating the US Economy Won’t Help – Red Dirt Liberty Report
    "When a government has enough control over an economy that it can use its own economy to influence other countries, that means that it has too much control," writes Danny Chabino in this edition of the Red Dirt Liberty Report. The post Isolating the US Economy Won’t Help – Red Dirt Liberty Report appeared first on Being Libertarian.
  • Genghis Khan’s Lessons of Individual Freedom – World Liberty Weekend
    "The Khan also allowed women to hold property, receive inheritance, and take up leadership roles in the empire. His wives were integral to running the various regions of his empire and had control over scores of men. The Confucians who were a part of the empire thought that the Mongols were uncivilized for this practice," writes Luke Henderson in this edition of World Liberty Weekend. The post Genghis Khan’s Lessons of Individual Freedom – World Liberty Weekend appeared first on Being Libertarian.
  • Misconceptions of Education
    "There are many ways to oppose the increasing intervention of the state into our personal lives. This is a non-ideological one. Progressives, conservatives, and libertarians can all agree that it is generally a good thing when parents take an active role in educating their children," writes Nathan Kreider in this edition of Misconceptions. The post Misconceptions of Education appeared first on Being Libertarian.
  • An Economic Insight That Will Improve Your Life – Opting Out
    "Always be open to people doing good for you out of pure heart, but don’t bet your house on it," writes James Smith in this edition of Opting Out. The post An Economic Insight That Will Improve Your Life – Opting Out appeared first on Being Libertarian.
  • On the Evils of Corporate Welfare – Freedom Philosophy
    "Conservatives and Liberals, Democrats and Republicans, believe that the government creates jobs. Indeed they do not; they take money from the people -- who create the wealth that generates jobs -- and these government officials give it to their friends. This ought not to be the case," writes Brandon Kirby in this edition of Freedom Philosophy. The post On the Evils of Corporate Welfare – Freedom Philosophy appeared first on Being Libertarian.
  • Wealth Guilt – Red Dirt Liberty Report
    "The wealthy have no reason to feel guilty about their wealth. It is a very good thing, I believe, when those who can donate to charity and use the money to help others do so willingly. However, it rings hollow if these actions are forced. There’s no honor in the forced taking of the property of others. It only serves the greater good when money is used for aid via voluntary means," writes Danny Chabino in this edition of the Red Dirt Liberty Report.

  • Hong Kong Protestors Charged, Spurring A Continued Fight – Word Liberty Weekend
    "The past two weeks’ events have shown that these citizens are fed up with the government continuing to shut down their gatherings and each confrontation with police only adds fuel to the fire. The pattern has been the same at each clash: It begins as a peaceful protest and then devolves into confrontations and outrage," writes Luke Henderson in this edition of World Liberty Weekend. The post Hong Kong Protestors Charged, Spurring A Continued Fight – Word Liberty Weekend appeared first on Being Libertarian.
  • Jeffrey Epstein Found Dead From Suicide
    "The Epstein case was politicized due to his connections to many powerful people on both sides of the aisle, including current President Donald Trump (who once called Epstein a “terrific guy” who was “a lot of fun to be with”) and former president Bill Clinton (who rode multiple times on the plane Epstein takes to his private islands where some speculate a great deal of his sex trafficking occurred). Both have distanced themselves from Epstein since 2008." The post Jeffrey Epstein Found Dead From Suicide appeared first on Being Libertarian.
