  • Fifteen Signs You’re in an Abusive Relationship with the Government

    "The use of fear and enforcement tactics to shut down dialogue and debate have never led to positive outcomes in any personal, societal, or global interactions." ~ Micha Gartz & Lucio Saverio-Eastman

  • Pathological and Parochial Altruism in the Age of Fear

    "A healthy altruism already resides in the concepts of liberty, free markets, free trade, and exchanges that are beneficial to each individual. If in the spirit of entrepreneurship, the defectors from the status quo, the disruptors and ingenious can rise up to challenge the “new normal” and break away from the cult of blind obedience and pathological altruism, then there is still hope." ~ Lucio Saverio Eastman

  • Max Forrester Eastman: The Gangster of the Pen

    "Max Eastman published detailed explanations that socialism, passed off as a social science, is in fact a disguised religious belief. Eastman revealed evidence of spiritual and animist elements in Marxism that, despite Karl Marx and others’ attempts to remove and erase them, are undeniably present throughout socialist ideology." ~Lucio Saverio-Eastman

  • No, Economists Do Not Assume Perfect Knowledge

    "The perfect knowledge assumption humbles economists. Gone is the notion that we economists are the enlightened philosopher kings of the social sciences and that the rest of the naves need only listen to our sagely wisdom. Instead, we are, as Boettke, Coyne, and Leeson argue, students of society, not saviors of society. Our job is not to critique nor justify, but to understand and explain." ~ David Hebert

  • 200th Anniversary of a Great American Demolition of Tyranny

    "John Taylor saw the fate of Americans as answering once and for all 'whether human nature is able to maintain a fair, free, mild, and cheap government.' But his countrymen were 'surrendering their [liberty] to political frauds.' In the 200 years since the publication of Tyranny Unmasked, the names of some of the political frauds have changed but the surrendering continues." ~ James Bovard

  • Gov. DeSantis Holds Second Roundtable with Public Health Experts

    "Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis on Monday April 12, 2021, hosted a second roundtable discussion with public health experts. The first one was taken down by YouTube. In a rebuke to the censors and in the interest of public knowledge of science, the governor held another with most of the same experts. AIER hosted the last one, and it still survives on our platform, so we are trying again, with full video and transcript." ~ AIER

Maybe the addition of a 33rd study showing that lockdowns don't work will convince governments of the world to stop it. https://t.co/VoXYklT1Qx

Clear thinkers take feedback from reality, not society.

Twisting the idea of individual freedom—and the responsibility that comes with it—to suggest that we submit to the demands of the most fearful among us is ass backwards. Make your own choices based on your own risk preferences. It’s that simple.

I don’t think we’ve even begun to come to terms with what we’ve done to some people, psychologically. https://t.co/2ZpDjBhSKG atonalmuse photo

“Fauci has turned into the perpetually pessimistic, overcautious, position-shifting, administration-pleasing face of the pandemic recovery...he’d do himself a favor by sitting out the next opportunity to appear on a show or podcast & focus on his day job.” https://t.co/DSHKIxBxUG
