Within the last several years, maybe before, ideology that developed in elite academic circles leaked into public affairs and is now driving forward life itself, ruining careers and lives and making inroads into the conduct of civil society itself. Andrew Sullivan, in an incredibly prescient piece, describes the ideology this way: "The core truth of our society is a system of interlocking and oppressive power structures based around immutable characteristics like race or sex or sexual orientation." What has this done? https://www.aier.org/blog/source-terrible-ideas-and-great-ones
The news has been packed with fake economics for the weeks since the correction in stocks began. Story after story has claimed that rising wages could translate into higher inflation, setting off fear and trembling on Wall Street. These claims have caused anyone with contemporary economics knowledge...
As soon as the federal government gets into the business of general income security, such as paid family leave, the stage is set for an almost endless entitlement expansion. The proposal that Rubio and the IWF have come up with will open a Pandora’s Box of egalitarian add-ons.
Good to catch up with Ron Paul...at a major Bitcoin event.
It was great to catch up with Ron. I was honored to host a dinner for him last night in Cancun, and give tribute to the role he played in inspiring me and also a global movement. There was something special too about the champion of the gold standard attending a high-end crypto event.

I'm following this Andrew Sullivan piece point by point. I too used to think that the campus problem was isolated, walled off, and irrelevant to the culture at large. Not so. The walls came down and now public life is dominated by the ideology Sullivan describes thusly: "the core truth of our society is a system of interlocking and oppressive power structures based around immutable characteristics like race or sex or sexual orientation." A powerful if depressing piece. The target here is liberalism.

Before we commence with the bread and circuses, consider that unlike in team sports, in politics you don't have to pick a side. Support the teams with the best game plans on the issues you care about. (fee.org/articles/must-…) @jeffreyatucker via @feeonline #SuperBowlSunday
I've been writing about John Perry Barlow since he died this month, and I'm delighted to find this: 25 Tips for Adult Behavior. Very wise. Be patient. No matter what. Don’t badmouth: Assign responsibility, not blame. Say nothing of another you wouldn’t say to him. Never assume the motives of others are, to them, less noble than yours are to you. Expand your sense of the possible. Don’t trouble yourself with matters you truly cannot change. Expect no more of anyone than you can deliver yourself. Tolerate ambiguity. Laugh at yourself frequently. Concern yourself with what is right rather than who is right. Never forget that, no matter how certain, you might be wrong. Give up blood sports. Remember that your life belongs to others as well. Don’t risk it frivolously. Never lie to anyone for any reason. (Lies of omission are sometimes exempt.) Learn the needs of those around you and respect them. Avoid the pursuit of happiness. Seek to define your mission and pursue that. Reduce your use of the first personal pronoun. Praise at least as often as you disparage. Admit your errors freely and soon. Become less suspicious of joy. Understand humility. Remember that love forgives everything. Foster dignity. Live memorably. Love yourself. Endure. https://lifehacker.com/john-perry-barlow-s-tips-for-being-a-grown-up-1822847961
The crypto revolution has been brilliant at building institutions. It is only now becoming brilliant at the crucial thing: building a theory behind the practice that will make this revolution soar. This is where AIER is making the difference.

Spare us. The long list of people you've tried to destroy with false allegations and your vigorous efforts to eliminate due process make your shameless hypocrisy clear to all but your most willingly ignorant sycophants. twitter.com/realDonaldTrum…

A price is a point of agreement. No more, no less. It cannot be deconstructed. It cannot be understood apart from human choice. It has no moral component to it at all. It is not about equality, justice, labor, or cost. It is just a price. Every price in a market is the right price, right now. Whatever the price is in an hour, day, week, or year, is also the right price.
Wow, gigantic controversy, really important, over the issue of barn animals on airplanes. Nice problem, if you think about it. nytimes.com/2018/02/04/opi…
