"The grain of truth in the idea that crises are caused by deregulation is that when government grants special privileges to banks and corporations, and then removes restrictions on how these privileges are exercised, perverse incentives take over and catastrophic results predictably ensue. But the problem is the initial regulations that create the privileges in the first place. Unchaining a state-privileged entity is not a decrease in state intervention; rather the contrary."

"Real right and wrong are pretty easy to grasp as long as you aren’t looking for excuses or shortcuts to get around them. They are not dependent upon opinions or the prevailing culture; these substitutes will lead you astray. Circumstances, 'laws,' or personal beliefs don’t change wrong into right." (01/06/11)

Government is not the answer

"The truth is that America is in really bad shape. The truth is that things are going to get a lot worse before they get better. And the truth is that there exists no political solution to our problems. This is because the only legitimate interactions between and among people are those freely assented to by all parties concerned. Government is inherently incompatible with this universal truth because it functions solely on the initiation or threat, of violence." (01/3/11)
