Written by Gary North on September 17, 2016

In the summer of 1962, I read Milton Friedman’s essay, “Is a Free Society Stable?” It was published in a campus quarterly journal, New Individualist Review. A group of students at the University of Chicago published it. It remains the best campus journal I have ever read. It ceased publication after seven years: April 1961 […]

A Populist Revolt — For Real This Time

Written by Gary North on August 6, 2016

populist-revolt

The phrase “populist revolt” has been around for a century. But, except for the three failed presidential campaigns of William Jennings Bryan — 1896, 1900, 1908 — we have not had one. Yet the phrase has survived. Why? Because the Old Boy Network represented by the Council on Foreign Relations is deathly afraid of it. […]

The defeat of the “remains” on June 23 was one of the great days in my life. Yet I am an American. Why should I care? Answer: because I have been opposed to the New World Order for over half a century. I have watched these clever people pull off the final phase of the […]

James Comey holds all the cards. He can make the decision regarding the correct time to recommend the indictment or non-indictment of Mrs. Clinton. This puts him 100% in charge. Not 50%. Not 75%. Obama has now gone kissy-face with Clinton. This is seen by a lot of commentators as a guarantee that the Justice […]

Recently, I have been thinking about how much life has changed in the last three quarters of a century and how much of that change is influenced by the bureaucracies and federal agencies that hold sway over almost every facet of life in America today. I have come to the conclusion that we live in […]

The Free Market vs. Fraud

Written by Gary North on April 16, 2016

Charles Hugh Smith begins his essay on widespread fraud in the rhetorically correct way: by stating the truth in a list of short observations. This can’t be said politely: the entire status quo in America is a fraud. The financial system is a fraud. The political system is a fraud. National Defense is a fraud. […]

Robert Nisbet once told this story to a group of grad students. I do not recall if the story was first hand or second hand. A professor was sitting at a table in the student center. Around him were graduate students, hanging on his every word. At another table, a colleague remarked: “There is a […]

Liberty’s Greatest Enemy Today

Written by Gary North on February 6, 2016

I am a conservative. I am a conservative by way of three phenomena that have linked together American conservatives since about 1920: (1) anti-Communism; (2) free market economics; (3) conservative social theory. I regard the most important world figure of the 20th century as Vladimir Lenin. Had it not been for the assassination of the […]

By Joel Skousen   The occupation of the headquarters of the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge in Harney County, Oregon by a small group of armed protesters represents a new and confrontational tactic in the Sagebrush Rebellion–the decades old struggle of Western ranchers against federal control of state lands. While the majority of rancher disputes are […]
