How the World Would Work Without Government?

by Doug Casey

April 24, 2002

Many people who are sympathetic to the notion of minimizing institutionalized coercion are still skeptical about how, or even if, the world would work without government. Who, they ask, would build the roads and run the schools? Who would keep order in society and protect it from predators?

How can Democracy be bad for you?

An explanation

The term "Democracy" is often used as an ideal which promises to bring peace, prosperity and happiness to all. Observe the way Clinton and Blair repeat the word as if it's a magical phrase which dispels critics and rallies support. I defined democracy and here I shall discuss some issues that surround it.

Liberty Is More Important than Democracy

by Richard M. Ebeling

[Posted April 30, 2002]

The 20th century was most certainly the most inhuman and brutal one hundred years in modern history. Two World Wars as well as the Nazi and Communist forms of totalitarianism have been estimated to have caused the death of at least 250 million people. This would be equivalent to the mass murder of the entire populations of Brazil, Argentina, Chile, Peru, and Paraguay.

The Real Story of the Money-Control Over America

by Sheldon Emry

This study on money is not copyrighted. It may be reproduced in whole or in part for the purpose of helping the American people.

If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their money, first by inflation and then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around them (around the banks), will deprive the people of their property until their children will wake up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered. - Thomas Jefferson

Grow Up, Canada!

by Ralph Raico

Canadian bleeding hearts are moaning and groaning because an American fighter pilot decided to drop a big bomb on Canadian troops engaged in combat exercises on the ground in Afghanistan. Four Canadian soldiers were killed and several wounded, including at least one with life-threatening injuries.

The Lessons of Yeltsen's Show of Force

by Alan W. Bock, August 1994

The standoff at the Russian White House, eventually won (for the time being) by forces loyal to Russian President Boris Yeltsin, demonstrates once again the truth that most holders and defenders of political power prefer to keep under wraps: that political power is ultimately the result of the use of force, and depends for its continuance on the willingness to use force against those one rules — or "serves."

Swells the State

by  Jeffrey   Tucker  

[Posted April 24, 2002]

As the war on terror drags on and on, saecula saeculorum, many people calling themselves libertarians have decided that it’s not such a bad thing after all. (The pundits calling themselves conservatives were among the first enlistees, and the left, as might be expected, is all for it too.)

We Come For Peace

By Rep. Cynthia McKinney

[Remarks to April 20, peace rally in Washington, DC]
We come here today from the four corners of this nation.

We are blacks and whites, Latinos, Asians, and Native Americans; Christians, Muslims, and Jews; gay, lesbian, and straight; immigrants and native-born Americans; rich and poor.

Here today are representatives of all sections of society: students, union members . . .

union members on strike . . .

The Freedom Noose Is Tightening

by Jeff Elkins

Our once free republic is slowly but surely morphing into a police state. At one point in time, the idea of a national police force was anathema to any thinking American, but sadly, that time is passing if it's not already gone. The implications of a recent press release from John Ashcroft's Justice Department are chilling.

The Bush administration is using the unconstitutional USA PATRIOT act to destroy the ideals of freedom laid down by our founders and his chief agent is John Ashcroft.

The Vicious Federal Injustice System

by William L. Anderson

For the last several months, the LRC page has dealt with the U.S. war in Afghanistan, mistakenly called the "War on Terror." (If President George W. Bush believes that he can use the U.S. Armed Forces to eliminate "terror" from the earth, perhaps he can use these guys to get rid of the "scary monsters" that seem to lurk in my two-year-old daughter's room at night.) One reason for the war, as we have been told ad nauseum, has been to punish those entities that helped plan and carry out the September 11 attacks.
