'Central banks are purchasing equities because yields in the bond market are too low. (Never mind that they themselves are responsible for forcing bond prices up and driving those yields down!) Like the rest of the investing world, central banks need investments that produce income. Having crushed the incomes of millions of investors, the world’s central banks are now raiding the stock market.'
The Merriam-Webster dictionary defines “fascism” as a political system that exalts the state above the individual. Fascism employs a centralized, autocratic government headed by a dictatorial leader, severe economic and social regimentation, and forcible suppression of opposition.

'One of the worst tragedies of Western #philosophy is the tying of egoism at its inception to whim-worshipping and brutality, which is all that's left absent reason.'  (Lecture 2)

Remember when game world makers looked up rather than down, saw hope not fear, and aspired to create an epic about ascension rather than a miserable fantasy groping for profundity in its baroque decay? Neither can I. A console game developer is poised to show the PC gaming world a vision that most of three decades of the art lacked the wherewithal to explore. #Bungie   #Destiny #destinythegame (Beta'd, preordered, ready.)

E-mails from 2009 through 2011 pertaining to IRS targeting of conservative non-profit organizations. "The agency blamed a computer crash for the mishap."

Were that the preservation of official documents of a bureau of the executive branch were held in sufficient importance to invest in
backup software.

The credulity to think that this scandal stems from the bias and malice of a few bad apples, rather than systemic unlawful conduct, is way, way past its expiration date.
The IRS has told Congress that it has lost some of former employee Lois G. Lerner’s emails, including some covering communications with Democrats in Congress and with other parts of the government, the House’s top tax-law writer said Friday.

"Yes, the modern left is so ideologically bankrupt that its representatives will blame a mass murder—even one perpetrated by an explicit and thoroughgoing collectivist—on individualism, and call for more collectivism as the 'solution' to the problem."

"I’d been rethinking the idea of evolution. I had major issues with the over-application of 'randomness' as the principal force behind variation in species, and in BLOOD MUSIC, came up with the then-controversial idea of read-write DNA and a computational system operating within the cell, and by extension, within a species or even an ecosystem. Rather neatly and with horrifying effect, retroviruses entered the news about the same time BLOOD MUSIC was published..."

Greedy speculators aren't the bane of human existence, but improve and sustain it. Every investment, every funding of any endeavor to create wealth (which detractors of economic reality need to seize and redistribute to maintain their delusion) poses risks and rewards, and require speculators to drive it.
Can you remember buying a book in 1992? After circling the block looking for parking, you'd dig for quarters, feed the meter and walk into a chronically disorganized “Super Store” which often doubled as a clubhouse for teens and rest stop for vagrants. Books plucked out of one section would be ...

We're excited to announce the new publication of a lost Ayn Rand novel. Ayn Rand’s work Ideal, written in 1934, is scheduled for release by Penguin Random House in July of 2015 and will be paired with Rand’s play of the same name into a single volume.

At OCON 2014, Leonard Peikoff will field questions about the book, its ideas and the history of this important new publication: http://bit.ly/OCON2014

'Evil cannot be combated by offering counter-statistics, as many conservatives are doing. No one is concerned with the statistics, only with the moral narrative. And the book's opening epigraph gives us that: "Social distinctions can be based only on common utility." In quiet, understated language, that statement lays down the formula for total collectivism.'

RooseveltCare is a forthcoming book from Don Watkins, co-author of Free Market Revolution.

'This is not another book for policy wonks about the financial trouble Social Security is in. This is the story of the role that Social Security and the entitlement state have played in eroding the eagerness, energy, and optimism that once defined this country.'
