Trust in Leaders Is Fading, Survey Reveals.

Written by Gary North on January 22, 2013

There is a survey for everything, it seems. One of them annually measures public trust in leaders and institutions. It’s called the Edelman Trust Barometer. Clever, right? A barometer tells you if a storm is coming. A big storm is coming. When trust fades, legitimacy follows. When legitimacy fades, revolutions occur in bad times, that […]

You probably knew about three of them. Economist Jeffrey Sachs lists them, and adds a fourth. 1. The military-industrial (-Washington) complex. 2. The Wall Street-Washington complex 3.

Video: My Speech on American War Revisionism

Written by Gary North on November 1, 2012

On Friday, October 26, I delivered a speech at the 30th anniversary conference of the Mises Institute. I spoke on how the Establishment has maintained the official explanation of Japan’s supposedly unprovoked bombing of Pearl Harbor — an explanation not easily believed, once you know the facts leading up to the attack. This speech takes […]

85% of Americans Reject Darwinism

Written by Gary North on September 27, 2012

The Darwinists have failed in the United States. They have controlled the colleges since at least 1885. They have controlled the public schools, K-12, since at least 1925. What has it gotten them? Not much. Around 85% of Americans reject Darwinism, according to a Gallup poll. The poll’s summary: Forty-six percent of Americans believe in […]

Written by Gary North on June 20, 2012

The top 100,000 people in the world with very high net worth — at least $30 million to invest — lost money in 2011. They are down an estimated 5%. They are not yet in bread lines, of course. But it reminds us that the capital markets are unpredictable. There can be down years, even […]

Death Panels: Greasing the Skids in the Media

Written by Gary North on June 8, 2012

There will be death panels. When the government takes over medical finding, there must be triage. Panels will decide: (1) Who cannot be saved; (2) who don’t need to be saved; (3) who is left over. That is what battlefield medicine has decided ever since World War I. Battlefield medicine is government medicine. All the […]

Why We Are NOT on the Road to Serfdom

Written by Gary North on May 24, 2012

F. A. Hayek wrote The Road to Serfdom in 1943. It was published in 1944. Americans who read the 1945 Readers Digest version liked it. University professors didn’t. This is one more bit of evidence that American voters have more sense than university professors. Are you surprised? When Hayek wrote The Road to Serfdom, he […]

Council of Despair: The CFR on America’s Public Schools

Written by Gary North on April 5, 2012

How are America’s public schools doing? Lousy, says a report from the Council on Foreign Relations, the most influential Establishment organization. Defenders of private education have been saying this for half a century. The CFR has finally acknowledged the problem. The CFR’s “task force” has announced that the failure of tax-funded K-12 education is the […]

Censor the Internet, Stanford Professor Recommends

Written by Gary North on January 26, 2012

The Establishment is running scared of the Internet, as it should. This Stanford professor calls for Google to label sites that promote anti-Establishment historical facts. This is what the Establishment did from 1940-1995. It controlled book publishing. It kept out “conspiracy theories.” Ah, the good old days! But they are gone forever. There are independent […]
