Whitehead: Has the American Dream Become the American Nightmare?

For too long now, the American people have allowed themselves to be persuaded that the government’s job is to take care of us: to feed us, clothe us, house us, educate us, raise our children, heal our infirmities, manage our finances, protect us from our enemies, guard us against all dangers (real and imaginary), and provide for our every need.

Where Americans go wrong is in failing to recognize that there’s always a catch to such devil’s bargains purportedly carried out for the good of all society.

Who, Clinton, Trump? It Doesn’t Matter!

I am trying to subscribe to Bob Livingston’s posts and thoughts. Every day I’ve been wading thru his Personal Liberty Digest, but am finding that usually it’s Bob Livingston who has it right; at the PLB, not so much. But at his newsletter, if you don’t buy something, seems one can’t subscribe. That just doesn’t fit my old-man circumstances!

Below is the current post at BobLivingston.com

I’ve copied the post but cut the sales pitch – if you wish, you can go to his website.

BRexit and DCexit: British and U.S. Voters Put a Halt to Elitism?

by Clarice Feldman at American Thinker, 12 June 2015
Here in both American in Britain voters are torn as to whether or not to jump off the globalization, open borders bandwagon and government by unelected bureaucrats or voting to retake sovereignty and re-establish free markets. The polls show the sentiments for retaining the status quo or starting over (Brexit) seem too close to call, I predict Britain will leave. I hope we, too, will choose to return to less intrusive more accountable government, sovereignty and freedom by rejecting Hillary Clinton ourselves.

The Formlessness of Progressivism

Yonathan Amselem …modern Progressivism has evolved into something so shapeless and amorphous as to amount to little more than a belief in “things that sound nice.” Mainstream Progressives have done an abysmal job of outlining precisely, in their view, the proper role of government and what (if any) limiting principle(s) apply to the state as a whole.

100 Years of Government’s “Managed” Health Care

Michael Accad at Mises.org:
“But in my 2-part series on the economic history of American medicine, I examined how healthcare has been “managed” from its inception in the late 1910s, when the Flexnerian reforms and the ensuing medical licensing laws began to influence (and limit) the type of medical care Americans could choose to receive.”

economic-crisis-goes-mainstream-what-happens-next

Last year, when alternative economic analysts were warning that the commodities downturn and oil crash just after the taper of QE3 were blaring signals for a downshift in all other financial indicators, the general response in the mainstream was that we were overreacting and paranoid and that the commodities jolt was temporary. Perhaps the fact needs repeating that it’s not paranoia if they are really out to get you.

(Who can really know about that?)

Defeating International Psychopaths

Many people are willing to cede control of their lives or some portion of their lives to a psychopath for various reasons, often as the result of some personal sense of inadequacy, a need for recognition, a need to correct a perceived wrong, or to follow an enticing ideology. All wars are, or become, a dispute over psychopathic control by one or both of the opposing sides
