Sonnet Upon God, the Wine Giver
Sonnet Upon God, The Wine Giver (For Easter Sunday) Thought Man made wine, I think God made it, too; God making all things, made Man made good wine. He taught him how the little tendrils twine. About the stakes of labor close and true. Then next, with intimate prophetic laughter, He taught the Man, in His own image blest, To pluck and wagon and to–all the rest! To tread the grape and work his vintage after. So did God make us, making good wine makers; So did He order us to rule the field And now by God are we...

The Love of Money
As I write in this 2019 Easter season, many now announce themselves as candidates for President of the United States.  Americans don’t seem to know what has happened to their country.  A fecal map of San Francisco reveals people are defecating in the street, a practice common in third world countries.  Life expectancy is in decline as thousands die of drug overdoses.  After being founded as a free enterprise capitalist society, in the backdrop of a growing body of homeless people living in the streets, there is talk of socialism, economic equality and guaranteed incomes. All of this occurring in...

Escobar: The Deep State Vs. WikiLeaks
Authored by Pepe Escobar via The Strategic Culture Foundation, The Made-by-FBI indictment of Julian Assange does look like a dead man walking. No evidence. No documents. No surefire testimony. Just a crossfire of conditionals... But never underestimate the legalese contortionism of US government (USG) functionaries. As much as Assange may not be characterized as a journalist and publisher, the thrust of the affidavit is to accuse him of conspiring to commit espionage. In fact the charge is not even that Assange hacked a USG computer and obtained classified information; it’s that he may have discussed it with Chelsea Manning and may have had the intention...

Sorry white males, you've done it again.  According to new research by New York University's AI Now Institute, we may be in for a future of racist, mansplaining, sexist AIs which are "at risk of replicating or perpetuating historical biases and power imbalances," reports The Guardian.  Examples cited include image recognition services making offensive classifications of minorities, chatbots adopting hate speech, and Amazon technology failing to recognize users with darker skin colors. The biases of systems built by the AI industry can be largely attributed to the lack of diversity within the field itself, the report said. -The Guardian "The industry has to acknowledge the gravity of the situation and admit that its...

Pushing Marijuana Legalization Across The Finish Line
Authored by Paul Armentano via Counterpunch.org, After nearly a century of cannabis criminalization, U.S. voters — and a growing number of high-profile politicians — are demanding that marijuana policy move in a different direction. One in five Americans now live in states where the adult, recreational use of marijuana is legal. And the majority of us reside someplace where the medical use of cannabis is legally authorized. Many of these latter programs have been in place for the better part of two decades. And it’s plain to see the results have been better for public health and safety than criminal prohibition, because public...

De Notre Dame en de rijkste man van Frankrijk
In de krant lees ik, dat de rijkste man van Frankrijk 100 miljoen euro per beschikking stelt voor de wederopbouw van de Notre Dame, die blijkbaar onvoldoende verzekerd was tegen brand. Afgezien van het feit dat de 100 miljoen vermoedelijk meer dan 100 miljoen aan belastingvoordelen, faam en politiek invloed zullen opleveren, kan ik hierbij […]

Rumors of War
It is depressing to observe how the United States of America has become the evil empire. Having served in the United States Army during the Vietnam War and in the Central Intelligence Agency for the second half of the Cold War, I had an insider’s viewpoint of how an essentially pragmatic national security policy was being transformed bit by bit into a bipartisan doctrine that featured as a sine qua non global dominance for Washington. Unfortunately, when the Soviet Union collapsed the opportunity to end once and for all the bipolar nuclear confrontation that threatened global annihilation was squandered as President Bill...

De strijd om uw valuta terug te eisen van het grootkapitaal.
Hoe bereik je je doelstellingen? Door kleine stapjes. Door samen te werken. Door tal van kleine stapjes te zetten in de goede richting. In de Verenigde Staten zijn er mensen die samenwerken, die hun valuta terug eisen. Die eisen dat goud en zilver zonder restricties of aanvullende belastingen als betaal middel mogen dienen.

E-Verify Threatens Us All
By: Ron PaulIn addition to funding for a border wall and other border security measures, immigration hardliners are sure to push to include mandatory E-Verify in any immigration legislation considered by Congress. E-Verify is a (currently) voluntary program where businesses check job applicants’ Social Security numbers and other Information — potentially including “biometric” identifiers like fingerprints — against information stored in a federal database to determine if the job applicants are legally in the United States.Imagine how much time would be diverted from serving consumers and growing the economy if every US business had to comply with E-Verify. Also, collecting...

Remembering Burt Blumert
By: David GordonToday would have been the 89th birthday of Burt Blumert, one of the greatest personalities of the modern libertarian movement. Burt was the indispensable man behind the scenes and was a key figure in the Mises Institute, the Center for Libertarian Studies, and LewRockwell.com. He was one of Murray Rothbard’s closest friends; and when you met him, it was easy to see why Murray liked him. He was a genial and kind person and a source of wise counsel to all those fortunate to know him. Burt was the founder of Camino Coins and a principal figure in...

Mark Thornton: Is the Bust Here?
By: Mark Thornton, Jeff DeistWith stock markets in turmoil earlier this week, the Mises Institute's resident expert on booms and busts joins Jeff Deist to make sense of it. Will new Fed Chair Jerome Powell do everything possible to prop up markets, or will he be more hawkish than Janet Yellen? What kinds of indicators does Mark look for to predict trouble (hint: it's not the VIX). Why does the volume of margin loans matter, and why is the Russell 2000 Index a better predictor than the Dow or Nasdaq? Are cryptocurrencies now bound up with macro trends? And is Austrian...
