The Government cannot plan the citizens out of poverty and into prosperity. The economy is not a machine to which a few wrenches here and there will solve the problem; the economy is made...
In Ireland, where I live, you are not allowed to travel further than 5 km from your home, and there are police checkpoints everywhere to enforce this rule. Only “essential” businesses can...

The liberty movement has often struggled with trying to convince people to embrace freedom, liberty and individuality; to create a beautiful world where people are free to pursue personal happiness and embrace the personal responsibility that comes with it.
If we take a step back and look at the past two hundred years, there have been radical changes. Slavery has been abolished virtually everywhere, democracy is widespread, wars are less common, and world poverty has never been lower.
Karl Marx left a strong antireligion inheritance to generations of socialists, but why are religions so incompatible with socialism? Because socialism constitutes a religion in itself.
Freedom is not granted, and achieving it is not particularly easy or fast, like any achievement, it requires time and effort to spread the right ideas, which in their turn will lead to the right actions. It is a daily fight.
Marxism is all around us, but what needs to be done to tackle it efficiently? We shall learn from our opponents.
The UK economy has suffered a heavy hit from governments imposing lockdowns; causing many businesses to go bust, people left unemployed, productivity immobilised, and living standards at a low. It is time for a tax reform.
Economic Policy: Thoughts for Today and Tomorrow, by Ludwig von Mises was my formal introduction to the Austrian School, which led me to libertarianism. I consider this book to be one of the best introductory books for those wanting to know more about economics and politics.
Bitcoin, the very first cryptocurrency, created by an anonymous individual that goes by the name of Satoshi Nakamoto, changed our modern societies. It provided humanity with a way to free itself from increasingly growing oppressive governments. This decentralized technology started a revolution of itself.
Socialism is about ‘social justice’, or, to use better words, ‘socialist justice’. It is not about building a prosperous society or minimising conflicts amongst individuals.
For decades we have turned a blind eye to the crimes happening in China. Now it has become a powerful and influent nation, impossible to be ignored. How much of a threat is the People’s Republic of China?
We are used to seeing press conferences discussing what measures will be or have been effective at reducing the spread of SARS-CoV-2. The media appears to assert almost axiomatically that if a restriction or mandate will reduce the spread of the virus, it should be implemented and there should be no further debate. Despite – at least in the case of the British Government’s SAGE committee – the dozens of fundamental u-turns on issues such as the safety of schools, efficacy of general mask usage, feasibility of herd immunity, and even Matt Hancock’s alarming uncertainty on the effectiveness of the vaccines, we are told time and time again to “trust the science.” To question their ever-changing gospel is to be “anti-science”, “a dangerous conspiracy theorist” and worthy of censorship, but scientific truth is decided by the universe, not by scientists.
Science & Technology
“The quicker I give up my freedoms, the faster I will get them back”, said the person who has never read a history book. “Two weeks to flatten the curve” turned into lockdown measures that already have lasted over a year.
Pop-science is currently no topic to overlook on social media. Websites or social media groups sharing factoids or infographics amass millions of likes and receive a high number of content re-shares. In parallel, pop-science magazines also attract many readers and have a strong online presence.
So, you’ve heard that big tech companies have transcended the niggling free market and reached the lofty heights of partisan politics — and act accordingly. Unlike prominent political figures you might not make the top of the purge list, but it’s no secret that censorship is surging. Both to protect your freedom, and to stop providing resources to those who would undermine it, it makes sense to jump ship. Now, when everybody else is also doing it. But how?
Economic Policy: Thoughts for Today and Tomorrow de Ludwig von Mises a été mon introduction formelle à l’école autrichienne, qui m’a conduite au libertarianisme. Je considère ce livre comme l’un des meilleurs livres d’introduction pour ceux qui veulent en savoir plus sur l’économie et la politique.
Ce livre est basé sur les transcriptions des enregistrements de conférences que Mises a donné à Buenos Aires, en Argentine, en 1958. Des années plus tard, après la mort de Ludwig von...

As Seis Lições, de Ludwig von Mises, foi minha introdução formal à Escola Austríaca de Economia, que me levou ao libertarianismo. Considero esse livro um dos melhores livros introdutórios àqueles que desejam saber mais sobre economia e política.
