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.

  • The Nature of Economics
    The science of human action, better known as praxeology, is of a different character than the physical sciences¹.

  • End All State Support to Colleges and Universities
    While Democratic Party presidential candidates are stumbling over themselves in offering people free college tuition and other political candy in the hope of buying their votes, I’ve got a better idea.

Being Libertarian

  • Most People Have No Right to Complain – Red Dirt Liberty Report
    "Representative governments become overreaching and overbearing as a result of people comfortably supporting politicians in an ends-justify-the-means manner so long as those politicians are 'their guy'. But each subsequent change in leadership results in that particular leadership using the power granted by their predecessors," writes Danny Chabino in this edition of the Red Dirt Liberty Report. The post Most People Have No Right to Complain – Red Dirt Liberty Report appeared first on Being Libertarian.

    "I had the opportunity to chat with Kim Ruff, one of the 2020 presidential candidates for the Libertarian party." The post An Interview with 2020 Presidential Candidate Kim Ruff appeared first on Being Libertarian.
  • War is Not Good for the Economy – Eccentric Economics
    "Yes, war does rally resources and dramatically increases productivity, but the ignored factor is where the productivity is directed," writes Logan Davies in this edition of Eccentric Economics. The post War is Not Good for the Economy – Eccentric Economics appeared first on Being Libertarian.
  • Hong Kong Sees Millions Protest Extradition Bill – World Liberty Weekend
    "China has disqualified candidates from running for office if they would not sign declarations that Hong Kong is an inalienable part of the country. Politicians have been expelled from office on four occasions for failing to take their oath of office "sincerely and solemnly," by modifying it during the swearing-in ceremony." The post Hong Kong Sees Millions Protest Extradition Bill – World Liberty Weekend appeared first on Being Libertarian.
  • Misconceptions of Left vs. Right (Part 6)
    "Individualism and collectivism do not adhere to opposite ends of the political spectrum. There are many examples of both ideologies on the left and the right. Therefore, to say that one side is inherently individualist while the other is intrinsically collectivist would be incorrect," writes Nathan Kreider in this edition of Misconceptions. The post Misconceptions of Left vs. Right (Part 6) appeared first on Being Libertarian.
  • Years and Years: A Dystopia for ‘Guardian’ Readers – Opting Out
    The best one can do in trying to make sense of the enigma that is the last decade is to think of things in terms of ever-splintering and diverging narratives, whose borders are shored up by their participants with steel walls, impenetrable by even the most open-minded and inquiring of truth-seekers. The least aware of […] The post Years and Years: A Dystopia for ‘Guardian’ Readers – Opting Out appeared first on Being Libertarian.
  • Triggering Libertarians – Freedom Philosophy
    "We cannot even partner with ourselves, let alone those well outside our movement. Accomplishing things in politics involves compromise. The defeat of Hitler came at the extreme cost of partnering with Stalin," writes Brandon Kirby in this edition of Freedom Philosophy. The post Triggering Libertarians – Freedom Philosophy appeared first on Being Libertarian.
  • The Democratic Debate Experiment Will Fail – Outside the Bubble
    "The mindset of voting against candidates is sure to set in soon, and it won’t be long before Democrats are voting for or against Joe Biden anyways, so really, these debates are to decide who the anti-Joe will be," writes Andrew Bartholomew in this edition of Outside the Bubble. The post The Democratic Debate Experiment Will Fail – Outside the Bubble appeared first on Being Libertarian.
  • Iran & The Issue of Justifying War
    "This method of gaining public support for war is so effective that it’s still used today, as recently as the invasion of Iraq in 2003 (on the basis of supposed possession of weapons of mass destruction, which were never found) or attempts to intervene in Syria between 2012 and 2019 (on the basis of alleged chemical attacks before any evidence of such was found)."

    "Yemeni healthcare centers often struggle to remain in contact with the Ministry of Health, suffer from administrative ambiguity amidst the conflictual situation of the civil war, and suffer from airstrikes."
