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.

Union Goons Hit Close To Home

I have a lot of family in Wisconsin. My siblings and my elderly parents live there.

Yesterday, my sister emailed me to say she was very proud to put a Scott Walker bumper sticker on her car. My sister is a proud conservative and a very caring and empathetic individual. Every Sunday she visits my parents in their nursing home complex and attends religious services with them.

Today she emailed me to say she can't attend church with my parents. She only has one vehicle in the family, and last night somebody drove a nail into her tire.

The goon who did it doesn't know my sister. His act of vandalism only made her more determined to work and vote for Scott Walker's reelection.
