Our complaints about the outcome of the market as unjust do not really assert that somebody has been unjust, and there is no answer to the question of who has been unjust.

Entries by Hunter Hastings
All jobs if well done are virtuous and bring dignity to those performing them, no matter how menial or trivial they may appear to be. All ways of making a living are of equal moral value.
The modern state has acquired a crushing power and a police more effective than at any time in history. “No absolute monarch ever had at his disposal a police force comparable to those of modern democracies.” Power has continued and continues to grow.
The “individual” (the real, present, acting individual), is exactly what we oppose to grand collective catchwords, such as nation, country, the working class, et cetera.
The question of what name to give the body of beliefs you subscribe to is not trivial: the names of political ideals and movements have a power of their own, independent of the actual content of the philosophy, because of the associations they bring and the emotional response they provoke.
Devaluation exists as a horrid tax on investment. Why put money to work if the exchangeable value of future monetary returns – already risky in the first place – is being shrunken by monetary authorities?
The notion that public space is for any and all purposes can be found in opposition to so-called “hostile architecture.” This is a term invented by activists who oppose the use of urban design to discourage the use of public spaces in ways not intended by the city or private owner.
Hypocrisy and double standards on the part of the social media behemoths cannot continue in the so-called ‘land of the free.’ And with US presidential elections approaching in 2020, tensions over such arbitrary power by the social media companies will only intensify when the people come to understand their voices are being silenced.
Today the rigid orthodoxy of Progressive Leftism prevails in the land. It is a noxious compound of several related tendencies and opinions, including the application of radical doubt about the nature of reality, the widespread acceptance of moral relativism, and the imposition of political correctness.
Politicians think that somehow, the same government that started a war in Iraq on faulty intelligence, botched the launch of HealthCare.gov, gave us the Solyndra scandal and can keep neither Amtrak nor the Postal Service solvent, can effectively coordinate a strategic vision for American manufacturing.
