Reliving We the Living Teaches Living Is Not the Avoidance of Death.

The first banner read: Comrades! We Are the Builders of a New Life! The other banner read: Lice Spread Disease! Citizens, Unite on the Anti-Typhus Front! The comparative irony Rand presents with these is stunning - to be a comrade is to be lice, citizens are builders where building is forbidden, and life is defined as avoiding death.

To Relive We The Living Is To Choose The Benevolent Universe Premise Of Our Childhood.

Class consciousness is fealty to your political identity group, Communism is the negation of human volition, and the bourgeois exploiters are the manufacturers and merchants who produce every material need and desire for human prosperity. But when a culture's dominant philosophy becomes malevolent, and motivated by envy and fear, force replaces reason and trade is conducted by blood instead of money.

Who is Kira Argounova? There's No Time Like the Present to Find Out.

Who is Kira Argounova? is an essential question no one has ever asked you, until now. As the lead character in Ayn Rand's 1936 novel We the Living, her story is more relevant than ever. Set in 1920's Soviet Russia, the circumstances of her life and culture are rearing their ugly head a century later in America. To learn more about Kira's life premise and America's degeneration, we have created the We the Living Study Group on Facebook for our readers.

Government Spending Creates "Zombie Congestion", Impeding The Betterment That Comes With Entrepreneurial Capitalism.

Over the last 20 years, the falling default rate has also closely mirrored the slowdown in U.S. productivity, which is not surprising. Keeping profitless companies alive naturally retards productivity. A 2017 OECD study found that “zombie congestion” in any industry lowers the productivity of rival companies—and blocks the entry of new companies—by making it difficult to attract capital.

Senseless And Counterproductive: Inspirational Latino Entrepreneur "Cancelled" By AOC And The Twitter Left.

It’s easy to point out how senseless and counterproductive this boycott is. Founded in 1936 by Mr. Unanue’s Spanish immigrant grandparents, the company is a living example of the American Dream. Mr. Unanue hopes his company’s story will inspire other Latino entrepreneurs. He was praised by Michelle Obama for Goya’s big role in her healthy-food initiative. None of it matters to AOC and her comrades.

A Central Issue For Our Times: Education For Children, Not Unions.

Sowell points out that for charter schools to succeed, they must please parents by educating students. Charters do not offer tenure to teachers, and therefore leaders and parents can demand high levels of performance from every teacher. Correct incentives enable charters to succeed, with teachers accountable to the parents and the school. Public schools have perverse incentives: parents often have no choice.

Poetic Justice Warrior Spotlight: Facing A Mindless Assault on Capitalism, George Reisman Defends the Mother of All Poetic Justice

Scientific analysis shows that while each individual is always economically best off earning as much money as the freedom of competition allows him to earn, people are not better off when earnings increase as the result of government policies of creating money. Absent government money creation, lower GDP signifies increased wealth and human well-being.

The radical ideology attacking our country advances under the banner of social justice. But in truth, it would demolish both justice and society. It would transform justice into an instrument of division and vengeance, and it would turn our free and inclusive society into a place of repression, domination and exclusion.

Poetic Justice Warrior Spotlight: Mel Brooks Found The Independent Virtues for Peaceful Human Progress in Comic Heroes

Brook's transcendence is proven with the first of these movies, The Producers (1967), which was re-created into a hit Broadway musical run nearly 40 years later. For Brooks, absurdity is an art form to be molded into a weapon against the endless absurdities of collectivism, particularly its most vile form, bigotry, whose politically correct version thrives today.

Francisco d'Anconia Combined the Virtues of Clark Gable and the Vices of Rhett Butler

Like Clark Gable did everything he could to preserve Carole Lombard's sense of life and spirit after her passing, Francisco d'Anconia did the same for Dagny during her lifetime. To save her from her only sin, the acceptance of unearned guilt, he sacrificed two very high values for a higher value - help her find out for herself, as he did, that she was paying white blackmail. 

Have We Reached A Revolutionary Situation? When The Intelligentsia Can't Bring Itself To Condemn Violence, Yes.

Gary Saul Morson says he has no special insight regarding police actions and the death of George Floyd.

Life is Good with Individual Economics

Individual Economics Shows Each One Of Us The Pathway To The Good Life.

Every individual plays two economic roles, as consumer and producer. In these roles, every individual is involved in transactions or exchanges. What individual economics has discovered is that, for an exchange to take place, each party to it must feel that they are benefitting. An exchange is mutually beneficial. Economics is never about exploitation, and always about shared betterment.

Love The Lockdown? It's Only Possible Because Of The Advances Of Capitalism And The Wealthy Investors Who Fund Technology.

Work from anywhere at any time would similarly have been a challenge. Not only was internet service much slower twenty years ago, not only was so much dial-up, most if not all online connections involved a cord. No moving around the apartment or house to work from anywhere. Assuming you had home internet, it was going to be utilized from a specific location.

What Have We Learned?

Forecasting is a delicate balance of probabilities. But people want certainty, especially when the stakes are high. The people who make forecasting models probably have less faith in their accuracy than those who read them, if only because things like confidence intervals are rarely discussed in the media.

There's a COVID-19 War On The Human Right To Work — Led Largely By Smug Intellectuals, Billionaires, And Politicians.

Some especially out-of-touch pro-shutdown "COVID Warriors" rationalize it all by insisting that these prohibitions on earning a living are, as Dr. Anthony Fauci claims, mere inconveniences. It's easy to see why someone like Fauci might think this way. His government salary is $400,000 dollars, and there is little risk he'll be missing any mortgage payments any time soon. 

Progressives Think They Have The Catastrophic Event They Were Hoping For To Destroy Free Market Capitalism.

Historian Sean Wilentz made clear the thinking of those who wear the label “progressive". They harbor the hope that one day, perhaps through some catastrophic event, American capitalism will indeed be replaced by socialism – a discredited system of public property and social ownership. For many, if not all, progressives, that “catastrophic event” is happening right now.

Bring Back Laissez Faire Capitalism.

What we need is the laissez-faire spirit of the California Gold Rush to revive risk-taking, investment and as many individual opportunities as possible. The goal should be to clear all identifiable impediments to the restoration of old jobs and the creation of new jobs that didn’t exist two months ago.

Entrepreneurs Are Always Going To Outsmart Government Bureaucrats And Regulators, And So Innovation And Growth Are Assured.

Because of entrepreneurs, the resources that we need in order to live, and innovate with, will become increasingly plentiful at costs that increasingly drop. No doubt growth would be greater minus all the government waste, but politicians exist to spend. Entrepreneurs will endure them, all the while accessing the resources necessary to innovate around them.

Poetic Justice Warrior Spotlight: A World of Ideas, Principles, and Action Define Modern Poetic Justice Warrior Mark Skousen.

Gross Output proves that business supply chain spending is double that of consumer spending, not the other way around. The reason why GDP and CPI dominate Fed policy, academic research, and financial media is because consumers vote, politicians pander, and influence peddling pays well. In soft money, of course. The flip side is that private sector production pays for everything.

In This Lockdown, The Left Openly Favors More Dependency Over A Return To Work.

The left could have chosen to be the political side that would rigorously interrogate whether governments have a reasonable base of evidence on which to halt entire economies, and that would demand lighter and shorter interventions. Instead, the virus disaster has crystallized the divide that has opened between blue-collar and lower-paid workers on one side and urban progressives on the other.

It's Now Clear That China Is No Partner To The United States. A Difficult, But Necessary, Separation Lies Ahead.

They have accomplished nothing, yet have the audacity to force themselves on society as experts and visionaries with nothing more than monetary dope.

Economic Freedom Generates Entrepreneurial Dynamism And Economic Growth. But Calls For Economic Security Are Socialistic.

The most important thing to understand about these policy prescriptions is that one’s economic security or general well-being has absolutely nothing to do with one’s “freedom,” and it never has.

American prosperity involves “creative destruction": obsolete activities and technologies disappear (the destruction), and capital shifts from old uses to more productive ones (the creation).
