Must Reads For The Week 5/4/19

“The coordination of men’s activities through central planning or through voluntary cooperation are roads going in very different directions, the first to serfdom and poverty, the second to freedom and plenty.” – F. A. Hayek

 

Freedom Or Government Control – There Is No True “Third Way“, by Bradley Thomas, at mises.org.  The above quote by Hayek begs the question; Which direction are our politicians attempting to force us? On the one side you have the new socialists in the Democrat party who aren’t afraid to tell us the direction they want to take America. Along with the establishment of the Democrat party who won’t admit the direction they want to take America. Along with the establishment of the Republican party who tell us they want to go in the direction of freedom, but whose policies take us in the opposite direction. Along with citizens who work for the administrative state and citizens who receive the largess of the administrative state. On the other side are citizens and some politicians who want to shrink the size and scope of government which would take us in the direction of freedom and plenty.

The middle of the road third way is chaotic. As we are witnessing in the America today.

Here is an excerpt from the article:

“The defining difference between socialism and capitalism, as described by Ludwig von Mises is “the substitution of public control of the means of production for private control.” More properly understood, socialism would eliminate the private ownership of the means of production by capitalists.”

“So efforts to impose “more aggressive regulation of markets” – which typically amount to more confiscatory taxes and stricter government regulations – may fall short of actual socialism, but erode the defining characteristic of capitalism, namely private ownership over the means of production.”

“It is important here to note that ownership implies the right to utilize, trade or otherwise dispose of property as the owner sees fit, as long as his actions don’t infringe on the rights of others.”

“Any restrictions on the owner’s use, therefore, represents an erosion of private property rights over the means of production, and a step in the direction of centralized, or public, control over those means.

The First Taste Of Freedom, by Eric Peters, at ericpetersautos.com. Excerpt from the article:

“A bicycle was once upon-a-time a kid’s first taste of real freedom. This appetizer tended to instill a hankering for more. An expectation. An awakening.”

“Those who grew up before the era of helicopter parenting commenced in the ’90s will remember it because they lived it. Saturday morning came and as soon as you were finished with breakfast, you bolted outside, got on your bike – without putting on a helmet-  and took off.”

“Cycling is mostly an adult activity now. It’ rare to see kids out riding their bicycles – especially by themselves.”

Venezuelan Socialism Victims Send Message To American Socialists, by Cabot Phillipps, at campusreform.org. Video of people from Venezuela telling what the socialist paradise is really like.

Why Social Democracy Is Failing Europe, by Alastair Macleod, at mises.org. Excerpt from the article:

“The point missed by most analysts is that social democracy is failing because of the contradiction between personal freedom and state control.”

“As a form of mild socialism, it fails for the same reason as did communism. It all plays into the hands of the communists, for whom the failure of social democracy is an opportunity. They encourage the rank and file to blame capitalism. The collapse of capitalism is inevitable, as Marx wrote. And its collapse hastens full-blooded communism. Communism is a broken philosophy, as has been clearly demonstrated. But ruthless leaders still see it as the means of obtaining power over their fellow humans.

Coming To America: The Complete De-Platforming Of All Non-Establishment Voices, at zerohedge.com. Excerpt from the article: “Free Speech is a myth. Technically we’re allowed to say what we want and won’t get arrested for it, but we constantly have to self-censor our speech, including our political opinions, for many reasons. You’re allowed to express some opinions, son long as they’re the right opinions.”

MEDIA NARRATIVES

How Media Narratives Become More Important Than Facts, Sharyl Attkisson, at theepochtimes.com. Excerpt from the article: “I believe I was among the first to really pay attention to the increasingly effective operations to shape and censor news – the movements to establish narratives rather than follow facts – and to see the growing influence of smear operations, political interests, and corporate interests on the news.”

“It’s not that I’m smarter than my peers …. but my particular brand of off-narrative reporting happened to draw the intense attention of the smear operators and propagandists, so I began to study it.”

Must Read “Leftovers”

March 8, 2018

DOJ Inspector General Returns Former CBS Reporter’s Computer After Switching Out The Hard Drive, by Sharyl Attkisson, at thehill.com. I would say this story is unbelievable, but it is absolutely believable. Years ago people would think that you were a tin foil hat wearer if you thought the Government was spying on you. But in today’s world it is hard not to believe it could happen. Former CBS reporter Sharyl Attkisson’s computer was hacked in 2013. She had an independent forensics test done on her computer which proved her computer was hacked by “remote intruders using software proprietary to a federal Intel agency“.  She turned over her computer to the Inspector General so they could examine it. They eventually returned it after they switched out the hard drive. The fact that this isn’t a bigger story shows the main stream media is in bed with progressive central planners in government. This is a complete abuse of power by government. Read the article and see for yourself if the IG is using typical stall tactics to cover their @$$. Click here sharylattkisson.com, to see a video of Sharyl updating us on her lawsuit.

Remember Filegate? Where The Clinton’s Promised Everyone That They Had Only Accidentally Been Looking Through FBI Files On Republicans?, at johnrlott,blogspot.com. Excerpt from the article: “Now we supposedly have 4 sources of information used by FBI to launch spying on Trump during the election. The Hill newspaper’s John Solomon claims: “All 4 Dossiers Used to Launch the FBI Investigation Against Trump Will Trace Back to the Clintons.

The Paradoxes Of The Mueller Investigation, by Victor Davis Hanson, at victorhanson.com. Excerpt from the article: “Mueller is under enormous pressure to find collusion between the Trump team and Russia, or to find that the Trump team obstructed justice by trying to hide such collusion. But neither likely happened. Mueller was appointed at a time of national hysteria, brought on by partisan journalism based on a leaked dossier – itself a product of a discredited British agent working with Russian sources while being paid by the Clinton campaign.”

“Mueller’s existential problem has been with him from the start. Due to the shenanigans of his discredited friend Comey and a rabid media, he was appointed to investigate crimes that did not exist. But if they did exist, collusion and obstruction were committed by those associated with the Clinton campaign and even by members of the Obama administration.”

“Investigating any possible crimes committed by members of the Clinton campaign or the Obama administration apparently is taboo, given the exalted status of both. But every time Mueller seeks to find incidental wrongdoing by those around Trump, he only makes the case stronger that behavior by those involved in the Clinton campaign and the Obama administration should be investigated.

If such matters are not treated in an unbiased manner, we are not a nation of equality under the law, but a banana republic masquerading as a democracy.”

ICE Raids: Oakland Mayor Doesn’t ‘Regret’ Tipping Off Immigrants, at usatoday.com. Would it be illegal if someone in the police department tipped of fchop shops about the dates of upcoming police raids?

YouTube Goes ON Rampage Against Conservative Accounts; Blames “Newer Members” Of Mod Team, at zerohedge.com. YouTube, a division of Google, is censoring Conservative sites. Don’t be surprised. Platforms like Google and Facebook are owned by liberals and have every right to get rid of content they Don’t like. This is not a free speech violation. Only Government can abridge the freedom of speech.  Conservatives will eventually find a way to get their message out. They will eventually come up with their own platform similar to Google and YouTube.

Google Sued By Ex-Recruiter Alleging Anti-White, Asian Bias, by Mark Bergen, at bloomberg.com. Google was hiring individuals based on merit for years. It produced a workforce that was primarily white and Asian. Google got to the top with this workforce. If they start to hire people based on whether they are women or racial minorities and not on merit, will they eventually slide from the top spot?

The Gas Tax Hike Is The Wrong Way To Fund Highways, by Robert P. Murphy, at Mises.org. American fracking has increased the supply of oil to the world market. At the same time world demand for oil has slowed or decreased. The result is the price of oil has stayed around $60 a barrel. Since gas prices have been under $3 per gallon for a few years, politicians and bureaucrats think it is a good time to raise the tax on gasoline, under the guise of funding highways.

Andrew Sullivan: In Today’s Fight Between Science And The Social-Justice Movement, Science Has Little Chance, by Mark J. Perry, at carpediemblog. When reality doesn’t fit your vision of the world shouldn’t you change your vision to fit reality instead of attempting to change reality to fit your vision? The cost of changing reality to fit a vision is high. Especially the psychic cost.
