The Downsides and Dangers of Mission Making

We are all familiar with the phrase, “He is on a mission.” When said, the connotation may be positive or negative, but either way it is presumed that the person in question is pursuing a greater purpose from a higher source or authority than in normal, everyday life. There are some who are now calling for us to be on higher “Missions” for humankind, instead of following our own everyday personal affairs in peaceful marketplace interactions with others. It used to be said that society needs planning. Now, of course, all of us as individuals make and pursue plans. We plan our day, we plan our careers, we plan our family affairs, and we plan our retirements or our vacations. We make plans with others, like arranging to meet someone for lunch, or collaboratively starting and running a business with partners, or buying a house or a car from a willing supplier at an agreed-upon price. Government Planning Replaces Personal Planning But ...

End All Interventionism, Not Just in Venezuela

It truly is phenomenal. The massive death and destruction from U.S. interventionism in Iraq, Afghanistan, Syria, and the rest of the Middle East isn’t even over with, and yet interventionist dead-enders are now shifting their sights to Venezuela. One almost gets the impression that the dead-enders are saying to America, “Please, give us one more chance. We promise we’ll get it right this time.” Obviously, the dead-enders are hoping that Americans forget the unmitigated disasters that interventionism has produced on this side of the world, such as in Guatemala, Nicaragua, Cuba, Chile, and others. The time has come for the American people to raise their sights to a higher level, one that involves not only rejecting more interventionism in Venezuela but one that rejects interventionism entirely. It is the only solution to the foreign policy-woes in which interventionist dead-enders have mired our nation. That necessarily means the following:

A Real Government Shutdown Would Help the Economy

In an editorial last week entitled, “Shutdown Slows Down the Economy,” the New York Times suggested that President Trump’s partial shutdown of the federal government is hurting the economy. It’s a point that many people on the left are making. They are wrong. Actually, the best thing that could ever happen, from an economic standpoint, is a permanent shutdown of all of the non-essential and illegitimate functions of the federal government, and there are many. Keep in mind that we are dealing with two separate sectors — the private sector and the government sector. The private sector produces wealth. It is the cause of rising standards of living. The other sector is the parasitic sector. It reduces standards of living. Suppose everyone in the private sector was free to keep everything he earned. 100 percent. Assume no federal taxes. The result would be an enormous rise in prosperity and standard of living. That’s because a key to rising standards of living ...

A Joint Statement on the Kennedy, King and Malcolm X Assassinations and Ongoing Cover-ups

As the House Select Committee on Assassinations concluded in 1979, President John F. Kennedy was probably killed as the result of a conspiracy. In the four decades since this Congressional finding, a massive amount of evidence compiled by journalists, historians and independent researchers confirms this conclusion. This growing body of evidence strongly indicates that the conspiracy to assassinate ...

We Have a Farm Bill

We have a farm bill — finally. The previous farm bill (The Agricultural Act of 2014) expired on Sunday, Sept. 30, 2018. Although this left several agricultural, environmental, conservation, and nutrition programs in limbo, they were kept alive through continuing appropriations bills. Every five years, Congress passes a farm bill that sets national agriculture, nutrition, conservation, and forestry policy and appropriates ...
