Unbelievable... his comment about libertarians just wanting to smoke dope and get laid... that's what he is able to say in describing libertarian philosophy ? Incredible how such blatant falsities are being propagandized and blindly swallowed by the people... you can hear them laugh in the back ground

It seems many of the commentators missed the point of someone making a profit from a resource will do more than a gvmt to protect that resource; a private person/business is invested with their own money, capital, labor - a gvmt has no incentive, other than publicly-perceived image, and even that is paid for not with the bureaucrat-politician's own money, but with money taken from the tax-payer in the first place !
Have a look at the African Rhino-story - changes in herd-populations since gvmt gave up their ineffective and devastating attempts at protecting them from becoming extinguished and privatized the herds !

Ok - as I am finally compiling my first-time collection of items for survival / bushcraft,, I have been watching plenty, as in lots of plenty, reviews and recommendations for such knives... add to that plenty comments and notes from users of Schrade knives...   and now I want to have almost every Schrade knife that I watched reviews on... !
Well... even just having one would be a fabulous item as the foundation for a survival kit !

Anyone have any experience ordering from amazon to ship such a knife into Canada?

Thanks muchly, for the quality work

So many people, including 'We are Change' and 'Occupy' movements, are quick and somewhat good at diagnosing the problem; unfortunately, so few take the time to learn the causes of the disease in our societal systems -
Without understanding the causes of the disease, they fall prey to the same propaganda-messages-lies the that the 'Elite' hand out to the masses, giving them the term 'capitalism' as an easy target to blame for all the ills in our society -

Too many people, still, do not see how it is exactly those in power who are the ones to benefit from socialism, from the welfare state, from ever more gvmt-regulations, from 'regulating' wall street (with laws written to protect their monopolies),
from the 'progressive' policies, from leftist equalitarianism, from collectivism... all of which serve to enslave the masses even more under never-ending rules, restrictions, laws, loss of ever more little-by-little stealthily taking of personal choices and freedoms, little-by-little inflationary wealth-confiscation from the people channeled into the coffers of the 1%, ...  -

And in all this, the masses are kept utterly ignorant of the truth that the terms capitalism and free market
1 - have absolutely nothing to do with the current system
2 - true and proper free market and capitalism would be the most speedy and pretty much guaranteed cure for the disease

The current system (for a good 100 years, at least) has been and is   * Not Capitalism ! *
It is corruption, political cronyism, Fascist (the state rules and regulates how private business is to be done), Socialist (taking from those who produce services and products and giving it to those who don't, including to them-there-self-serving politicians and bureaucrats themselves), Oligarchy (a few wealthy rule the political class for maintenance of their own existence), ...

To think that the current system could have anything to do with 'free market' is an utter fallacy, as easily made clear simply by the single fact that gvmt-in-bed-with-Central-Banks/FED, has the monopoly on currency creation, interest rates, wages, telling people what is 'legal tender' ...  this alone means that every single exchange between humans in our society is regulated in some form or other by the state - most such exchanges and transactions even require us to pay a tribute/tax/fee/fine/permit/license/customs-fee/duty/... to the state  -

Once one realizes this, it ought be clear that calling our society or economy a 'free market/capitalism' is plain and simple utter nonsense -

Of course, there are areas and aspects of society and economy in which this state-interference varies in degree...
Buying balloons at the local store for the birthday party is more free than, say setting up a business to compete in the oil-drilling market...

Interestingly, however, history, as well as current experience shows, that wherever this state-influence-and-control is lesser, there is equivalently more prosperity, more inventiveness and creativity, innovation, costs are not inflationary but generally decrease over time, saving is encouraged and rewarded, resources are more efficiently utilized, the consumer has much more influence in shaping the services and products provided, there is more wealth overall for more people, and poverty is reduced...

SUV / Engine photo is done with a very long focal lens tele-optic, which compresses perspective and alters the apparent size-perception/relation ! any even inexperienced photographer could
 notice this -

I just tuned in to the last 10 minutes... but here is a recent article, timely to your show today, on whether to effort towards gradual change or towards the final goal -  re-published on mises.ca, by Murray Rothbard :
What Libertarians Should Learn From the Abolitionists
Wednesday, June 4th, 2014 by Murray N. Rothbard posted in Philosophy, Politics.
