Cultural Authoritarianism Breeds Political Authoritarianism. Kevin Carson, Center for a Stateless Society (2010-09-24).
Libertarians sometimes tend to focus on political freedom in isolation, and to view cultural authoritarianism (at least as long as the state isn't directly involved) as something libertarianism as such has nothing to say about. I believe this is a mistake. Cultural authoritarianism — such as occurs in the family,…(Linked Wednesday 2010-10-13.)

Soul great Solomon Burke died at a Netherlands airport over the weekend. Burke is one of my favorite vocalists, so I'm going to indulge in a bit of appreciation. Depending on whom you believe, Burke was either 70, 72, 74. Given his 400+ pound frame, that he lived that long…(Linked Wednesday 2010-10-13.)

If You're Not an Extremist, You're Not Paying Attention. Kevin Carson, Center for a Stateless Society (2010-10-14).
If you follow U.S. cable news and mainstream editorial pages, you've probably learned that some arguments don't have to be answered. They just have to be quoted or paraphrased, with an eye roll, and summarily dismissed. So you get Keith Olbermann treating suggestions that the federal government might become tyrannical,…(Linked Thursday 2010-10-14.)

The Washington-Wall Street Kabuki Dance. The Freeman | Ideas On Liberty (2010-04-23). Excellent work in the latest from Sheldon Richman: “When I watch the public furor over the ruling party's attempt to ‘toughen’ regulations on the financial industry, I get the same feeling I often have in a theater: Good show but it's not real. … If you have doubts about any of this, imagine some top Wall Street operator calling for elimination of the Federal Reserve System and the banking cartel it administers. Imagine him endorsing repeal of all federal and state banking regulations and their replacement with free banking and market-based money. Imagine him testifying on behalf of an end to all implicit guarantees, bailout promises, and the "too big to fail" doctrine. If you can't imagine it you have begun to grasp the nature of the actual political economy in which we live.” Sheldon’s column has also been reprinted in this weekend’s CounterPunch. (Congrats!)
