Not sure about Lew Rockwell's optimism

I've posted before about how sane I think Lew Rockwell is. But in this instance I'm not so sure he is right. He quotes a speech made by George Bush in which Bush actually states a lot of truth about free markets and free enterprise. Lew sees this as a sign that the Republicans are getting back on track. I have a nasty suspicion about it.

Consider; Bush is the most widely detested US president that I can think of worldwide. He has trashed civil liberties and spat on the Constitution. He has brought about war where war was not only unnecessary but where it looks like his friends made great profits from it. He has done all these things and more by telling the most outrageous lies. He is considered a liar and now he speaks truth. I think this is  damaging to truth. A liar is someone not to be trusted. For a liar to speak truth invalidates that truth in the eyes of those who might otherwise consider it. I don't think what I say here is widely unknown. I think it likely that those who pull George's strings know it too and want free markets and less government invalidated as good ideas. And the best way to do that is to have Honest George make a speech in praise of freedom.

When you feel like you're p*ssing in the wind

Vested interests almost never use logic to win an argument. And you probably wouldn't expect them to. After all they know they are pushing for special rights over others that can't be justified logically. In fact I would go as far as saying that when you are up against someone who tries to win an argument by using ridicule or other tactics that attack you rather than your argument you know you are either facing a member of a vested interest group or a sucker for their propaganda.

If you have spoken to such people in the last year and felt like you came off worst then watch the following video. Peter Schiff was part of the team working with Ron Paul. Here we see him predicting the current economic mess before it happened. Isn't the internet great? Watch those who "argue" against him.

For me the most important take-away from the video is that accurate predictions are possible and aren't based on luck. They are based on sound economic theory which is absolutely not the current mainstream economics as taught in most of our schools and colleges. Sound economics and sound economists are possibly the greatest enemies of our ruling class. Sound economics is worth learning about and is probably the best place to start.

Gordon the Wannabe and the International Crime Syndicate

I heard the news today oh boy. Gordon the Wannabe and other undesirables are openly planning the next central bank. It will be same as the Bank of England or the Federal Reserve or the Bank of Europe. But it will be bigger and better. In fact the central bank of the world looks like it is just around the corner.

If you want some common sense analysis of what those thugs are really up to take a look at this video. It was made some time ago maybe even before Gordon knew what his role would be. But just imagine what might happen if this were seen and put into the current context by a good number of people in this country. I wonder how Gordon would try to appear responsible and completely public spirited then.

Gordon follows the script

In an amazingly up-front speech Gordon Brown confirmed much of what I said a few weeks ago in my predictions.

It will be a lot of fun celebrating his demise along with his party in the not too distant future. Unfortunately we'll then have the Tories to put up with.

Do you still believe in magic?

Only the most cynical will scratch their heads over this one. Make sure you are not among them!

Lew does it again

There are very few people quite like Lew Rockwell. Take this analysis of the current gushing over Obama. If he isn't on your reading list I think you are missing out.

Which writers do you admire?

The replacement for BBC Radio 4

I'm used to either listening to music of my own choice or to Radio 4 when driving. R4 tends to be nothing more than a non-stop propaganda delivery system which often infuriates with the logic of "everyone knows" but occasionally, albeit very occasionally, there is a gem like the what men do in their sheds documentary of around 15 years ago.

Most of my trips are relatively short these days and I've taken to listening to a lot more podcasts that are also relatively short. If you find your sense of logic outraged more often than not on R4 and you'd like to be among friends who will treat you with respect then I highly recommend subscribing to the podcasts put out by Lew Rockwell. Lew is sane and highly intelligent. He speaks softly and has a passion for truth and the genuine well-being of his fellow men such that makes it obvious is missing from the heart of every politician in history bar those few like Ron Paul. 

You can find and download the free podcasts here.

Check this out

I've put a new link under friends on the right of the blog. It is a radio station that isn't controlled by the main stream media. It is American but considering their ruling class is pretty much the same as ours it is relevant to UK listeners too.

I haven't checked out all the broadcasters/podcasters but Thomas E. Woods is on their and he is most certainly worth listening to.
