What we really have here is the Trifecta of [galactic scale weather]. We have the Sun probably resetting for Grand Minimum, which means everything on earth gets extreme. We’ve been living in one of the calmest two to three hundred year periods [of] recorded history, and that’s both by humans and what’s recorded in nature. Number two, it’s happening as earth’s magnetic field is getting ready to reverse…….And now, here comes the center of the Galaxy like a beast saying, ‘I want to play too.’ That’s the Trifecta [of galactic scale weather].

Americans, for all our many favorable traits, exhibit an almost childish naïveté when it comes to political life. We claim to hate the system, and bemoan the current state of affairs, but we savagely attack anyone who truly strays from the script. And we accept with a fairly straight face the candidates’ “policies” and supposed positions on issues.

Martin Armstrong (in 2015)

There can be no equal justice or freedom of thought, religion, or anything as long as we discriminate against others for race, creed, sexual orientation, beliefs, or possessions.

Beyond Misinformation

What caused the destruction of the World Trade Center Twin Towers and Building 7 on September 11, 2001? More than a decade later, this question continues to be discussed by many people around the world. What does science say?

Ludwig Von Mises (1881-1973)

Socialism is not in the least what is pretends to be. It is not the pioneer of a better and finer world, but the spoiler of what thousands of years of civilization have created. It does not build, it destroys. For destruction is the essence of it. It produces nothing, it only consumes what the social order based on private ownership in the means of production has created . . . Each step leading towards Socialism must exhaust itself in the destruction of what already exists.

Economics and Ethics of Private Property

In order to explain the emergence of barter, nothing more than the assumption of a narrowly defined self-interest is required. Insofar as man prefers more choices and goods to fewer, he will choose barter and division of labor over self-sufficiency. The emergence of money from barter follows from the same narrow self-interest, if man is integrated in a barter economy and prefersa higher to a lower standard of living, he will choose to select and support a common medium of exchange. In selecting a money he can overcome the fundamental restriction imposed on exchange by a barter economy, i.e., that of requiring the existence of a double coincidence of wants. With money his possibilities for exchange widen. Every good becomes exchangeable for every other, independent of double coincidences or imperfect divisibilities. And with this widened exchangeability the value of each and every good in his possession increases.

Creating a Competitive Market for Justice

A restitution based system is simply more effective than stand-alone rehabilitation and punishment. Focusing on restitution leads to private investment in an incentive based criminal justice system. The net result is more justice, cheaper justice, and higher quality justice.
