At school or on the job, no one likes 'busy-work'. So what are we supposed to think when society 'makes' work?

The danger comes when authority figures try to shelter kids from offensive ideas and symbols. It’s better to let them behold the swastika, and laugh at it, than live in fear of it. 
Reason reported last week that a high school production of The Producers has been forbidden from using swastikas: The New York school district that oversees Tappan Zee High School considers the…

+Devin Warren What if that move were to make all of their goods 50% cheaper for us consumers? What if only 25% cheaper? 10%? Whatever the percentage, I'm certainly not positive we can absolutely claim it is a bad thing. Division of labor is a GOOD thing. Yes, it can be challenging for people that may need to find new sources of work and new income, but that doesn't mean it's a bad thing for society in general.


Yes, free trade is disruptive to existing structures. It causes lots of challenges to people who work in lower skilled or more manual areas. I recognize that. But this type of disruption is not new to markets. The car was disruptive to horse farmers and horseshoers, tractors disruptive to farmhands, textile mills disruptive to hand loomers, automatic switchers to human telephone operators, etc ... But it doesn't mean that we should actively set up impediments to such change because it might mean that some people need to learn new skills.


Does it truly matter morally whether the local disruption happens because of technology or cheaper labor? What if the disruption happened closer to home? If West Virginia decides to reject the federal govt's minimum wage and abolish it in order to do something about their unemployment situation, would companies that move their manufacturing across the border from Virginia to West Virginia be evil because some of the people in Virginia lost their job? What if it moved from California or Alaska? After all, it would mean firing California workers so they can train their West Virginian replacements... Does that really change the nature of it?


"You are what is wrong with America."



Oh? How's that? Because we have nothing like what I advocate. So I'm not sure how I could be the cause of any of the "wrongness" in America.

A resource for learning about the ideas of a free society.
Introduction
Welcome to LearnLiberty.org, a resource for learning about the ideas of a free society. Our goal is to provide a starting point for conversations on important questions:

• What is the nature of man and society?
• What are the best ways to organize human society?
• What is the proper role for government?

We believe that the classical liberal or libertarian tradition can offer compelling answers to these questions. Classical liberal ideas have deep intellectual roots, cultivated by thinkers such as John Locke, Adam Smith, the American Founders, and more recent scholars such as Friedrich Hayek and Milton Friedman. These scholars emphasize the importance of free markets, voluntary exchange, individual rights, and peace.

Classical liberal thinkers do not agree on everything, and the speakers on LearnLiberty.org are no exception. We believe exploring and discussing these ideas is so important precisely because we do not all agree. We hope you will join our conversation, and help advance the understanding of these important ideas.
