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.

What Did You Expect?

President Trump ran the most unconventional election campaign in the history of the nation.

President Trump is the crudest character to win election to the Presidency since Andrew Jackson.

President Trump promised to go to Washington, DC and "drain the swamp."

From Day One of his Presidency, Trump has acted like a bull in the swamp china shop.

The swamp media is out to get him.

The swamp establishment is out to crucify him.

Even some of those who supported his run for the Presidency are becoming impatient awaiting the miracles Trump promised to perform for them.

Those parasites who depend on the swamp to nourish them are beginning to flop like fish out of water.

They are desparate.

As they gasp for life, they will say and do anything to destroy the threat Trump presents to them.

Were you foolish enough to expect something different?
