Love, Liberty, and the State posted 11/18/2012, 7:28 PM (Robert Higgs)
[Category: Commentary]
Love and liberty are the basic building blocks with which decent people build good lives for themselves.

Love takes many forms--in personal relations, in work and other creative endeavors, in charity toward the needy, in spiritual commitments that give deeper meaning to life amid its inevitable challenges and losses. Love gives us a reason to continue despite discouragements and difficulties, to keep trying to make still another comeback after we have been crushed in body or spirit.

Freedom provides the spaces we need to express our love, to pursue our passions in regard to where and how we live, to choose our goals freely and pursue them as we think best, to practice the arts and professions that most attract us, to allocate our personal and material means as we please in the service of our own purposes, to live without feeling a constant need to look over our shoulders, lest we incur the wrath of a state functionary or a policeman in search of his next victim.

If we have love and liberty, other things follow naturally, at least as naturally as the laws of nature, society, and economics allow. Liberty gives us room for maneuver as we construct our lives in accordance with our loves.

It is no wonder that the state's essential nature entails its thwarting of love and liberty--nay, even worse--its breeding and fostering of their exact opposites.

States thrive on hatred. In their very establishment, through conquest and the pillaging of conquered people, they make themselves hateful by their own violence and cruelty. In the course of their post-conquest histories, when the formerly roving bandits have discovered that stationary banditry pays better than hit-and-run plunder, they hold their odious threats of violence constantly over their subjects' heads to ensure that no one dare resist their rule or their demands for tribute

The "Fiscal Cliff" Will Be Just the Beginning of Sorrows posted 11/18/2012, 7:28 PM (Will Grigg)
[Category: Commentary]
The U.S. government is scheduled to arrive at the so-called “fiscal cliff” on January 1, when the Bush tax cuts expire and mandatory budget sequestration kicks in. At the same time, the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation will stop offering 100 percent insurance on all bank deposits, and reinstitute the $250,000 deposit insurance limit.

Marijuana Legalization Victories Are Already Ripping the Drug War Apart posted 11/18/2012, 7:28 PM (StoptheDrugWar.org)

Of all the fascinating reactions I've seen to Colorado and Washington's successful marijuana legalization initiatives, this is by far the most extraordinary.

Calderon says the legalization of marijuana in Washington and Colorado repre

This episode is about where you choose to live and the impact that this choice can have on your level of freedom.
