O Mito da Constituição Libertária Americana
De Charles Boyd. Artigo original: The Myth of the Libertarian Constitution, 30 de dezembro 2020. Traduzido para o português por Gabriel Serpa. A Constituição americana, como fora elaborada por seus criadores na Filadélfia, há muito é descrita como sendo uma garantia às liberdades individuais ante a repressão governamental. Muitos dos críticos de Donald Trump o…
The Myth of the Libertarian Constitution
The original Constitution, as designed by the framers in Philadelphia, has often been seen as guaranteeing individual freedom from government repression. Many of Donald Trump’s critics see him as undermining our nation’s foundational constitutional principles, and people and groups from Joe Biden to Black Lives Matter are often seen as trying to restore them. But…
Il Male della Disuguaglianza
Di Gary Chartier. Originale pubblicato il 22 gennaio 2016 con il titolo What’s Wrong with Inequality? Traduzione di Enrico Sanna. A credere ai cosiddetti esperti, sembra quasi che tutto quest’odio verso la disuguaglianza sia frutto dell’invidia e di una certa ignoranza sul funzionamento dell’economia. Una ragione in più per non credere ai cosiddetti esperti. Il…
Territori Indiani: L’esproprio Continua
[Di Kevin Carson. Originale pubblicato su Center for a Stateless Society l’otto dicembre 2016 con il titolo Native Land: The Expropriation Continues. Traduzione di Enrico Sanna.] La percentuale di territorio che resta agli indiani, dopo secoli di ruberie e genocidi, è attualmente il 2% circa del territorio americano formato da riserve. Adesso la ciurma di…
Native Land: The Expropriation Continues
The land remaining to America’s First Nations, after centuries of robbery and genocide, currently stands at the roughly 2% of U.S. territory enclosed within reservations. Now Trump’s incoming crew wants to “privatize” (loot) it (Valerie Volvovici, “Trump Advisors Want to Privatize Oil-Rich Indian Reservations,” Reuters). The fact that this two percent of the land may…
Some Straight Talk on Eminent Domain at Reason
At Reason, Nick Gillespie (“Donald Trump, Jeb Bush, Eminent Domain, and the Keystone XL Pipeline,” Feb. 7) offers a welcome bit of thoughtful discussion of the Keystone XL pipeline project insofar as it involves the issue of eminent domain. To be sure Reason has published a few pieces in recent years that mentioned both eminent…
What’s Wrong with Inequality?
If you believed the talking heads, you might think concern with inequality in our society was just a product of envy and economic ignorance. That’s another reason not to believe the talking heads. The fact that someone has more wealth than I do doesn’t injure me or make me worse off. And the economy isn’t…
The Constitution Revisited
I am mystified that so many libertarians still see the U.S. Constitution as a landmark achievement in the struggle for liberty. On principle alone, they should have become wary in time. A document that is adored at virtually every position in the political firmament should arouse suspicion among libertarians. Moreover a smattering of historical knowledge…
“Libertarian” Stossel Marginally Less Statist Than Trump
Seemingly John Stossel never sits down to write without the goal of further lowering the bar for qualifying as a libertarian. This time (“My Trump Problem,” Reason, Nov. 11), he’s managed to push the criterion to the all-time low of being somewhat less statist than Donald Trump. Stossel’s first problem with Trump allegedly centers on…
Con Libertari come i Fratelli Koch, chi Ha Bisogno dello Stato?
Come definire una persona che vuole rubare la tua terra e causare terremoti sotto i tuoi piedi? David Koch, uno che approva entrambe le cose, si definisce libertario. Il mese scorso, in un’intervista rilasciata a Barbara Walters per la trasmissione “This Week” trasmessa da Abc, si è autodefinito “essenzialmente libertario”. A parere di Koch, l’etichetta…
With Libertarians Like the Koch Brothers, Who Needs the State?
What do you call someone who wants to steal your land and subject you to earthquakes? David Koch, who favors these things, calls himself a libertarian. In an interview with Barbara Walters last month on ABC’s “This Week,” he described himself as “basically a libertarian.” That label, as Koch sees it, means “a conservative on…
Una Buena Razón para No Construir el Oleoducto Keystone XL: La Justicia
El calificativo de “libertario” pierde su significado si no implica la defensa de la justicia. No puede, ni debe, significar la legitimación del feudalismo siempre que éste “sea bueno para la economía”.
One Reason Not to Build the Keystone XL Pipeline: Justice
Byas: The Keystone XL pipeline has inspired a lot of controversy. For defenders of freed markets, however, it shouldn’t. Libertarians should emphatically and unequivocally oppose the pipeline.
