This week’s longer addition to the blog comes in the form of a lecture by Hans-Hermann Hoppe on the how & why of insurance and how little sense it makes to pool certain people with others. This is a good one – easy to understand, commonsensical, and informative:
Hans Hoppe also really tore through many of the arguments I have put forth about how great a document the Constitution is. I still think it is unequaled today, but Hoppe points out some severe limitations that the Constitution has in the presence of brilliant legal minds that can twist it to their will:
I also found this one to be challenging – The Evils of Intellectual Property by Jeffrey Tucker. Is copyright the right answer in the modern age?:

In document form, for reading instead of listening, I found a few more additions…
- Thomas E. Woods, Jr., on what it means to truly be conservative.
- Murray Rothbard on the dangers or neoconservative war-creation and the growth of the State.
- Joy Gordon on how sanctions act as war on citizenry more than anything else, and are accordingly immoral in and of themselves.
- Robert Moeller on the errors that inhere in secularity paired with society.
