Re: Tyler Cowen on hatred of Media

It's more to do with the fact that MSM outlets have been caught routinely lying, are propaganda arms of political parties and in some cases the state itself, and have been exposed primarily through alt media sources when doing so, that has burnt their credibility. People do not like being lied to, a...

Re: Pro-Segragation Harvard

@FvS thanks for the chart. I'm inclined to agree, although that's because I tend to use "white" as a shorthand for individuals of European ethnocultural lineage. I can understand the urge to take a stricter definition of it, particularly when skin colour alone is being conflated with race. I don't t...

Re: Libertarian-Nationalist Policy Aims. What Are They?

The whole thing makes sense. Although I've moved towards a more tolerant view of minarchism over the years, which may be why. Regarding breeding habits, I would say for as long as the welfare state exists, it would make sense to make receipt of welfare for certain individuals, where they are chronic...

Re: The Role of Shadow Banking in the Business Cycle

In connection with the topic I’d recommend the blog ‘spontaneous finance’, which is maintained by a banker with explicit Austrian leanings.

Re: Which is the least worst tax - Sales or Land?

Also I think if it were in plain view just how high a tax would be required to sustain current spending levels, it might invigorate the appetite to see spending cuts through.

Re: Free Tommy Robinson?

UKIP without Farage has proven to be useless. I agree that the Brexit referendum was by and large an immigration one; hence why had it been left to say Carswell, Hannan or Johnson alone, the vote to leave probably would not have been as successful, since they're all pro-mass-migration. Yet, looking ...

Re: Which is the least worst tax - Sales or Land?

The flaw is the idea that it would need to be maintained at current levels. :p However, that aside, its annual expenditure in GDP terms makes sense to me. Pretty sure part of that would be financed through bond sales and by extension QE, but the goal would be to eliminate the latter and restrict the...
