Book Review: Papal Teaching on Private Property – 1891 to 1981
This is post # 1000. And in less than 3 years…
But getting right down to it (I have a helluva week this week)…
- A study recently determined that Detroit is America’s most liberal city. Hint, hint.
- Christians are still being killed all over the MidEast, and the media & politicians have nary a word to say about it.
- The psychological science of libertarianism is fascinating…
- In a previous post, I embedded an image that imagined the dystopian future of totalitarianism by distraction and government crackdown, as predicted by Aldous Huxley and George Orwell, respectively. In the past week, an article spoke to the same sentiment, and how we are getting as close to both as they could have predicted – and sooner too.
- We can’t keep living this economic dream, Walter E. Williams argues. Even though Rand Paul proposed cuts of over $500 billion this past week, the deficit is predicted at over $1.5 trillion this year, and $1 trillion for the next three. It isn’t enough.
- Obama is just as corporatist as anyone else in government (from the HuffPost, no less), and for all of the big talk of pure liberalism where companies don’t have advantage over the citizenry, he has been bought and paid for like any other corrupt official.
- A jury has found that you do not have to show your ID in order to fly. I like limits on the TSA’s ability to molest people at airport checkpoints, but this one might go too far. In one way, I think people should be screened at the airport, albeit to a lesser degree than they are now. But being able to fly without anyone knowing who you are is a bit of a stretch for me, even yet.
- The Church is against our and Europe’s Keynesianism. There you have it, moral-religious grounds for rejecting the inflation of money for governmental ends.
Finally, the road to hell is paved with good intentions. And leftism is paving that road faster than anyone else (though it is not the ideology that is doing the best job brainwashing the people. neo-conservativism and the party of war wins that game):
