About This Blog

Ludwig von Mises (1881-1973) was the greatest economist of my time. His greatest works can be accessed here at no charge.

Mises believed that property, freedom and peace are and should be the hallmarks of a satisfying and prosperous society. I agree. Mises proved beyond a shadow of a doubt that the prospect for general and individual prosperity is maximized, indeed, is only possible, if the principle of private property reigns supreme. What's yours is yours. What's mine is mine. When the line between yours and mine is smudged, the door to conflict opens. Without freedom (individual liberty of action) the principle of private property is neutered and the free market, which is the child of property and freedom and the mother of prosperity and satisfaction, cannot exist. Peace is the goal of a prosperous and satisfying society of free individuals, not peace which is purchased by submission to the enemies of property and freedom, but peace which results from the unyielding defense of these principles against all who challenge them.

In this blog I measure American society against the metrics of property, freedom and peace.

Iranian Assassination Plot -- Yeah, Sure.

Is anyone else suspicious of the alleged plot by an Iranian terrorist to assassinate in the US the Ambassadors from Saudi Arabia and Israel?

How convenient that this terrorist plot is uncovered just as Eric Holder is burning on the hot seat for the Fast And Furious gunrunning affair. Oh, and didn't Israel need an excuse to attack Iran's nuclear facilities that are about to be completed?

I am normally not a conspiracy theorist, but neither am I an absolute dummy. And I can trust the Chicago mob occupying the White House just about as far as I can throw them.

The left imagines George Bush and the US government destroyed the World Trade Center on 9/11. Surely they wouldn't discount a possible "Wag The Dog" effort by the White House on Iran.
