Hans-Hermann Hoppe: A Unified Theory of Everything

I possess three brain cells. One is concerned with food and beer, particularly Sam Adams light, the black stuff from Guinness, and any full strength export lager originating from Sweden. The second brain cell is concerned with personal visions of a possible future in a couple of thousand years. The third brain cell, God bless it, is concerned with music, philosophy, chess, politics, writing, art, fine Pinot Noir wine, provocative Stilton cheese, good conversation, and, when it has the chance, the brown-eyed charms of Penelope Cruz.

Who is the Greatest Living American?

According to the mostly left-biased media here in the UK, Michael Moore's newly released Fahrenheit 9/11 is a must-see film, with hordes of people apparently flocking to British cinemas already to watch the Great Man in action. Read more »


Turnips and Firing Squads

Randall McElroy, below, is right. There is hardly a single action any western government ever takes, in relation to the family, which lacks an ulterior motive.

For many decades the world's socialists have been driving us towards a complete breakdown of western society, so that they can fragment it into a myriad of bloody shards to rule over the shattered pieces. Read more »


British Socialists to End Happy Hours

As if you needed proof of socialism's eternal drive to end all forms of human happiness, in whatever form, Great Britain's Nanny Statists, and their associated boot boys in the highly expensive and highly ineffective public police forces, have decided to try to end all private bar 'Happy Hours'.

The Colour of Monie

Notice something wrong with the spelling of the headline above? Yes, that's right, I've spelt 'monie' incorrectly. And according to my English UK Microsoft spellchecker, everything else is perfectly correct, including of course the word 'colour'. Which is as it should be, as I sit here in the leafy-greened splendour of the Queen's blessed and many wondrous sceptred isle. Read more »


Uncle Joe lives

Some days you may feel that you have it bad living in America, especially if you live in somewhere horrific like Taxachusetts. But please spare a thought this morning for those of us in the UK who think the heady heights of Boston's Bunker Hill would be an Austro-libertarian wonderland compared to what we have to put up with over here.

In many ways Britain resembles a living experiment of what it will be like in the US in a few years time if you let the socialists in Washington DC take over even more control from your lives. So beware! Read more »


The World According to Hans-Hermann Hoppe

I possess three brain cells. One is concerned with food and beer, particularly Sam Adams light, the black stuff from Guinness, and any full strength export lager originating from Sweden. The second brain cell is concerned with personal visions of a possible future in which my children's children may grow up. The third brain cell, God bless it, is concerned with music, philosophy, chess, politics, writing, art, fine Pinot Noir wine, provocative Stilton cheese, good conversation, and, when it has the chance, the dubious arts of adult education and the brown-eyed charms of Penelope Cruz.

Michael Moore Hates America

My apologies if you have already heard this, but according to the UK's Daily Telegraph newspaper this morning, an irreverent young man, called Mike Wilson, is working on a film due for release in the summer about America's greatest ever blue collar hero: Read more »


This England

After spending a week in the US, in Washington DC, and discovering the size of American banana splits made from frozen custard, I got up this morning, back in England, to discover a huge pile of mail staring back at me. Can I really have got this much mail in just one week? Oh yes.

And most of it was from the government. Quelle Surprise. Read more »


Troy: The film that launched a thousand trips to the restroom

Well, OK, so it dragged a little in parts, but for my money Troy was well worth the six dollars I paid to enter an air-cooled cinema complex in Reston, Virginia, to see it, after a hot day rambling along the US National Mall, in Washington DC. This day-trip had rather remarkably included a motorcade glimpse of that modern-day Agamemnon and Caretaker-King of Kings, George Dubya Bush. But more about him, later. Read more »


Too posh to wash

You may think the US health system is a socialized mess, but just try using the UK state monopoly National Health Service. Well, no, don't. I wouldn't wish the UK's health service on even my fondest enemy. The phrase producer-led was almost invented for this parasitic body, the NHS, which now employs well over a million people.

Sim City: The Anarcho-Capitalist Edition

I recently got hold of a copy of Sim City 3000: UK Edition, to taste my first ever experience of The Sims computer game franchise.

And it was just great to be told, after I had planted my first water pipes firmly in the ground, that as the City Mayor I had to provide all of the city's education, police, health, transport, recreation, and fire needs, and pay for them all out of general taxation, otherwise the Sims would avoid my city.
