“Gabby and I are extremely disappointed by the NRA’s defiant and delayed response to the massacre of 20 children and six adults at Sandy Hook Elementary School,” Mark Kelly said in a statement.

Kingdom Come: The Politics of the Millenium

by Murray N. Rothbard on December 21, 2012

[First published in Liberty Magazine, 1990] 

Christianity has played a central role in Western civilization and contributed an important influence on the development of classical-liberal thought. Not surprisingly, Christian beliefs about the “end times” are very important for us right now.

Christian Reconstructionism is one of the fastest growing and most influential currents in American religious and political life.

 Anouncing the beginning of publication of THE ESSENCE OF LIBERTY which is a series of condensed versions (Cliff Notes, if you will) of some of the classical as well as modern works in the science of liberty. It is intended to provide an introduction and sound basic foundation in the fundamentals of a discipline that integrates sound, free market principles of economics with a property rightsnatural law based ethic into a single whole—a truly universal philosophy of political economy applicable to all men at all times and in all places.

A few years ago, the country became aware of a “bubble” building in higher education, as it had in housing.Harvard, Legendary Home Of Harvard Lampoon, Strangles Campus Satire Capital Flows Capital Flows ContributorBen Bernanke’s War On Senior Citizens Capital Flows Capital Flows ContributorThe Republican Party Has A Brand Problem,


And We Have The Evidence To Prove It Capital Flows Capital Flows ContributorHanukkah’s “Don’t Tread On Me” Message Is Universal In Its Appeal Capital Flows Capital Flows ContributorExcessive demand – based largely on easy credit, government subsidies and the overselling of a college education – caused academia to expand unsustainably.

Then came the economic downturn. With underemployed graduates and dropouts increasingly unable to repay loans, state legislatures cutting appropriations, and innovative competition making inroads, the bubble appeared ready to burst, or at least deflate.

That could mean – so the theory goes – devastation for traditional academia: declining enrollments, with some colleges forced to close, perhaps; a shift in emphasis from academic to vocational courses; more online education; an end to faculty tenure, and other drastic changes.
