Re: What source of energy would predominate in a genuinely Free Market?

To my knowledge there's no reason not to think that, for the time being, coal, natural gas, and oil would predominate. If any of the renewable methods were economically viable then governments would have pushed us onto them by now. Nuclear is the only interesting case. I think that nuclear is econo...

Re: MLB - Private Police Force

Against that background, I personally would have great reservations about private policing as the norm. Private healthcare and even private fire services, which we used to have in England, are one thing, but policing is a whole different matter, especially when it evolves into the realm of criminal...

Re: A Supposed "Insider's" Take On The Globalist Agenda

That's plausible. The globalist elites want a compliant population who they can control and make huge profits from. I think you'd find James Lawrence's work of interest at Affirmative Right. He's heavily influenced by James Burnham and Sam Francis, he's also read Hoppe, and argues the correct analys...

What source of energy would predominate in a genuinely Free Market?

This is something I have often considered. My instinct for electricity generation would be coal based on how cheap and dense a source of energy it is. Nuclear Power stations seem to require far more start up costs (always, I think subsidised by the public purse) and are more dangerous, but I think t...

Re: Moving Libertarianism Forward

It would only be faux compromise, like how every politician says one thing and then does another when they are elected. Obviously, it would be important for the these mole candidates to be legitimate libertarians in close contact with the true leaders of the movement (Rockwell, Ron Paul, Hoppe, Woo...

Re: Moving Libertarianism Forward

First, you won’t be able to attract top political talent if you can’t promise any sort of recompense for their trouble in terms of power. Shifting the window means that you “win” when the other guy steals your thunder and you are left with nothing. Now, Farage seems a champ and he may well be perso...

Re: Moving Libertarianism Forward

Very difficult to pull the UKIP gambit under a plurality voting system. The point of the system (or of any other single-winner system) is to elect centrist candidates with wide appeal. Like it or not, the west’s current predicament is what appeals to the median voter and can only be changed when th...

Re: Moving Libertarianism Forward

1) With respect to immigration per se I definitely agree. To show that we understand that culture matters and that's largely determined by people groups is important especially to garner support from the small c conservative types. We don't just believe that abstract individuals exist. 2) a) Bad ide...
