Our Constitutional Solution

It is hard to find another point in American history when we have been so deeply divided about the direction of our government. The contrast between the previous and current administrations could not be more pronounced. Many people believe that government has broken the bounds of our Constitution and is trying to provide for all…

You’re in the Media Spotlight, Now What?

Media appearances are coveted opportunities to promote yourself, your brand, or your movement. But your excitement for the free opportunity to promote yourself is not enough. Are you ready? Surprisingly, even seasoned professional speakers, actors, writers, musicians, and other personalities or on-air talent may still have challenges with media appearances. The reason is simple: media…

Taking on the Biology of the Virus Itself

By James Clark, Steven R. Goldring, John Norton Moore, Daniel J. Pambianco, and Guy B. Roberts Greater pandemic preparedness will require improvements in infrastructure, early warning, testing, contact tracing, enhanced communication, and international cooperation, as detailed by a recent independent task force report of the Council on Foreign Relations. But simply doing better in these…

Our Techno-Wealthy Future

Over the past two centuries, the Enlightenment values of reason, liberty, and free markets have unleashed the creative energies of billions of individuals. Innovators and entrepreneurs have led the way, producing more wealth during that time than had been created during all of prior human history combined. Most people in developed countries, and more and…

Freedom and Wealth

Well, that was an interesting year. Turns out making money isn’t as exciting if you’re locked down in a high rise drinking whiskey alone in your underwear.  My firm specializes in Cryptocurrency Retirement Accounts, so endless money printing and early stage Communist Revolution was in fact “very good for business”. Financially, we did very well, our…

Goodbye Circular Flow, Hello LinKē!

Dominant but damaged… There’s no need to show you the Circular Flow Diagram – it’s already in your head. It has dominated economic thought for a century. Yet, all along we’ve known its shortcomings: over-aggregation, static capital, instant production, and homogeneous factors.1  It places consumption before production and supports a fantasy macro world where saving is…

Vascular Deterioration in Our Brains as We Age: Can These Changes Be Treated?

We all know our brains do not work as well as we age. Forgetting names, phone numbers and where we left our car keys are all natural consequences of an aging brain. Many medical researchers now believe that age-related cognitive decline is a vascular event and comes about as our brain neurons are slowly choked off by diminished blood flow to the…

On the Road Again–You Come Too!

I love road trips. Over the past 15 years I’ve crossed the country from coast to coast and north to south at least two dozen times. It started in 2007 when my husband wanted to send his handcrafted “Totem Pole of Economics” to FreedomFest for a talk he was giving on Keynes, Smith and Marx.…

Are You Healthy, Wealthy & Wise?

Ask yourself these three questions, “Who are you?” “Do you have a social security number?” “What do you own?” The thing people generally call the “United States Government” doesn’t come close to honoring the Constitution or the Constitutional Republic it formed; thus, in this article, I call that thing: “Corp. U.S.” (to see more on why,…

Nobody Gets Footloose in D.C.

“You won’t get any dancing here, it’s illegal.” That’s a line from the 1984 film “Footloose” starring a then very young Kevin Bacon with the very cool character name “Ren McCormack.” Now, I know I am biased here, given my alter ego is “Renaissance Man,” and given that a certain cadre of in-the-know friends actually…

The Antidepressant in Your Refrigerator

About thirty years ago, my mother gave my then-new bride and me what has become over the years one of our most use-worn cookbooks: The Mediterranean Diet Cookbook. Being someone at the time who enjoyed eating whatever I wanted, a cookbook with the word “diet” in it would not normally have grabbed my attention. But,…

Our Techno-Healthy Future

Imagine a future in which you rarely visit a doctor, in which your joy of life and bank account are not drained as you age, in which you live well past a hundred in good health, vibrant in mind and body. Imagine that the words you are reading are not click bait or science fiction.…

Homeschool Freedom—A New Hope

“What should we do tonight?” one of my college friends asked on a rainy Saturday night in 1977. After a few rounds of “I dunno, wudda you wanna do,” someone plucked the campus newspaper from his backpack and looked at the movie ads. (For you millennials out there, that’s the mid-twentieth century analog version of…

How Bitcoin Provides Freedom

The government can move in at any moment; however, they can’t censor, devalue or steal math. History repeats itself. Although the world is experiencing major global unrest, it is also true that there is “nothing new under the sun” – regimes change, power structures shift, and the fourth turning is upon us. It is indisputable…

Cancel Culture, Woke Mobs, and Our Kids

In George Orwell’s 1984, citizens are subjected to the “Two Minutes Hate” — a daily stream of new things they’re supposed to be outraged about. We’re experiencing that same outrage today–two minutes (or two paragraphs, or two sentences, or 144 characters and a meme) of outrage over the most recent misstep. And a growing element of…

Money or Currency?

For most of human existence, gold and silver have been used as both money and currency. Money is something that has intrinsic value and is universally recognized. Currency is a medium of exchange. While land and oil could be considered money, they are not easy mediums of exchange, making them unsuitable as currency. Gold and…

How to Stop the Biden Agenda

By Cristen Wohlgemuth During the Democratic primary race, some saw Joe Biden as a more moderate alternative to other Democratic candidates on the ballot such as Bernie Sanders or Elizabeth Warren. But in the weeks since the election, Biden has rapidly filled his cabinet with a collection of names and faces—some new and some who…

Crisis in the Making: The Convergence of Communism and Secularism in the Assault Against Judeo-Christian Values

by Gloria Z. Greenfield I recently came across the headline of an article that declared “millennials support socialism because they want to make America great — but for everyone.” The author continued on, proudly stating that the word “socialism” is becoming more mainstream. Membership in the Democratic Socialists of America has exploded, and the 2019…

How Extremists Took over the Duopoly — And What To Do about It

We greatly appreciated the thoughtful FreedomForum Op-Ed “We Will Not Be Silenced” (January 11, 2021), especially its honest criticism of the violence in the trashing of the Capitol Building. Five dead. This follows a summer of inner cities rioting, looting, and killings committed in the pursuit of social justice. The most recent political violence follows…

3LP: To Live and Let Live… and Thrive!

We need to start thinking much bigger.  The world has presented us with the best opportunity we have ever had to really advance the causes of freedom, peace and civility.  People are increasingly weary of the status quo and the endless struggle of groups wanting to coerce each other towards often worthy goals.  They want…

Missing the Forest for the Trees

After my workout this morning, I stopped at the cliffs above Capitola, overlooking the Monterey Bay. It had just rained lightly, so the air was crystal clear, and the brownish gold of the kelp beds at low tide made a vivid contrast with the blue gray ocean. The little bit of sun that peeked through…

Lockdowns Stunt Women’s Progress

by Amelia Janaskie One hundred years ago on August 26, 1920, women obtained the right to vote by the adoption of the 19th Amendment. The Amendment allowed them to vote and participate in political life and symbolized their expanding independence, individuality, and personal freedom. Since then, women continue to enjoy greater economic freedom.   The…

We Will Not Be Silenced

Many years ago I went with a large group of protesters to the Virginia State Capitol to tell our legislators how we felt about a particular issue. We did not have appointments, but we did not need them. The Capitol was a public building, and we arrived during business hours. We simply walked in. Some…

Covid Regulations in Loco Moco

by James Bovard   In August, I reported here on how Montgomery County, Maryland, was seeking to shut down private schools as part of their Covid-19 strategy of abolishing all risk by abolishing all freedom. As more individuals have recently tested positive for Covid, the county government is responding with a new array of iron-fisted…

A Day to Celebrate Human Achievement

The third week of October marks the anniversary of a great human achievement. On October 21, 1879, Thomas Edison ran an electric current through an experimental light bulb. He had tried thousands of filaments in other bulbs in the past. While none worked, he considered them successes in that they limited the possibilities of what…

10 LESSONS FOR 10-10-2020

The year 2020 has been anything but a year of seeing clearly. It has been characterized by uncertainty, divisiveness, and conflicting views. In the January prediction issue of my newsletter, “Forecasts & Strategies,” I stated, “The outlook for stocks, gold and the dollar is positive as we enter 2020, but beware of a ‘black swan’…
