With Friends Like These, Who Needs Enemies?

“The evil was not in bread and circuses, per se, but in the willingness of the people to sell their rights as free men for full bellies and the excitement of the games which would serve to distract them from the other human hungers which bread and circuses can never appease.” — Admiral Ben Moreell (1892 – ...

Memorializing the Horrors of War with 10 Must-See War Films

“The horror... the horror...”—Apocalypse Now (1979) “You can’t show war as it really is on the screen, with all the blood and gore. Perhaps it would be better if you could fire real shots over the audience’s head every night, you know, and have actual casualties in the theater.”—Sam Fuller, film director and author Nearly 71 years ago, the United States ...

Bionic Mosquito’s Bite Misses the Mark

In my article “Bionic Mosquito Has It Wrong on Immigration,” I pointed out that when it comes to immigration enforcement measures that accompany immigration controls, Bionic Mosquito (i.e., Jonathan Goodwin) was steadfastly ensconced in the land of silence. Like many proponents of immigration controls, he simply chose not to discuss them. Bionic has ... [click for more]

The Keys to Human Prosperity: Individual Liberty and the Rule of Law

Bionic Mosquito Has It Wrong on Immigration

Jonathan Goodwin, who writes under the pseudonym Bionic Mosquito, has an article at LewRockwell.com entitled “Open Borders and the Real World,” which is critical of the article I posted on FFF’s website last week entitled “Open Borders Is the Only Libertarian Position.” In my article, I threw down the gauntlet to libertarians who advocate government-controlled borders and who ...

Government Interventionism Created Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump

America and Europe, and, indeed, other parts of the world are going through major political, economic and cultural crises. In the U.S., some social critics consider the likely Democratic and Republican candidates for president to be among the most corrupt, power lusting and personally offensive that have ever run for that high office. In Europe, the Social Democratic and moderately ... [click for more]

Anti-war Is Pro-American

Thomas Jefferson declared the American way of interacting with the world to be "peace, commerce and honest friendship with all nations – entangling alliances with none." However, over the course of at least the past seven decades, the US government has turned this admonition on its head. Peace? The US government has waged wars of choice almost constantly since the ... [click for more]
