Here's an interesting article on free market anarchism by economist Robert Murphy. Murphy is the guy that Paul Krugman won't debate for charity.

I wouldn't 'debate' you for free, Lies and Spoonerisms.

If Austrian free market economics and laissez faire libertarianism is so great, and big government collectivisim is so bad, why did Daddy Koch have to finagle Frederick Hayek onto Social Security and Medicare before Hayek would leave his socialized healthcare crib in Austria to become his shill?

"Do as I say, not as I do."

Priceless.

An entirely unconvincing argument. The thing you have to love about Libertarianism is that they have this uncanny ability to create what seems like an entirely cogent argument within a single article. They are very skilled at glazing over their logical fallacies. The sad part is that from one argument to the next they completely contradict themselves.

LysanderSpooner is a propagandist - he no longer debates but posts spam.

It is sad. I guess he has given up.

Could at least one person detail their objections to Robert Murphy's article? And could someone tell me why Krugman shouldn't debate Murphy on the business cycle. He should wipe the floor with him and a food bank in NYC gets a big check. It's a win-win.

We drew straws and I lost so I have to answer that I didn't read the article, but I have lots of opinionated opinions opining in my oinion-like mind.

What did you think of Jefferson Airplane's first single?

Their first single or first album? From the album Tobacco Road is a classic, High Flying Bird is my favorite. After this though Surealistic Pillow took a whole new direction.

Let Me In was the best side of the 45, and a lot of others must agree. Bringing Me Down is almost never heard or seen

After they copped the name most people just went back to calling a roach clip a roach clip. .

The Von Mises institute has zero credibility. You have given no reason why I should take Murphy's article seriously.

You can't even tell me what the article says. Why should I go on your blind links to some propaganda site?

Does the bennefit of Jefferson Airplane outweigh the costs of Jefferson Starship?

Yes, absolutely.

When warlords took over, what could anyone do?

Can Democrats Set Out a New Path?

Democrats must embrace a pro-government platform, not run away from it.

Those were the sentiments of Senator Chuck Schumer today, in a speech given at the National Press Club. Talking about the reasons for Democrats’ losses on Election Day, Schumer said that those losses were proof that the American people and middle-class want a government that will work more effectively for them.
