How you spend your money is your business and your business alone

Cafe Hayek
by Don Boudreaux

“You ask how I ‘dare infer’ that my ‘self-centered desire’ to trade with foreigners as I choose should ‘outweigh the American people’s verdict to have our President conduct our trade in ways which he concludes advances our national interest.’ I ask how you dare infer that Donald Trump’s ... desire to prevent me from trading with foreigners should outweigh my own verdict ...”

“[T]he threat to freedom of speech emanates not only, or even primarily, from the ‘jihadists’ veto.’ The deeper problem is us. There’s pervasive antipathy to the principle of freedom of speech. Unless we understand and value it, we will lose this crucial right.” (01/07/19)

by Ethan Blevins

“While I don’t really mean this as a criticism so much as an observation, monarchy and feudalism abound in most other-world fantasies. Or the politics are indistinct. Despite my deep love for Tolkien, he falls into this category as well — either political control is unclear in regions like the Shire, or the region is ruled by an absolute ruler.” (01/06/19)

by Nathan Barton

“Money is important to almost all of us. ... But where government, and especially the FedGov, REALLY costs us — you and me — the most and worse is intangible: It costs us freedom.

by Jacob G Hornberger

“The decades-long U.S. interventionist policy against Cuba failed to achieve its goal of removing Fidel Castro from power and replacing him with a pro-U.S. regime, similar to the pro-U.S. Batista regime that the Cuban revolution ousted from power in 1959. More important, interventionism against Cuba ended up attacking the freedom and values of the American people.” (01/01/19)

“When I wrote about the Donald’s change of troop positions abroad last week, it was less than completely clear that the US President aimed to withdraw troops from Afghanistan as well as Syria. But multiple reports on the day I posted ‘Strategic Disengagement’ make it clearer: about half of America’s 14,000 troops stationed there are scheduled to exit. Why not all?” (12/28/18)
