If Forrest Gump’s mother were around, she would remind us of this fundamental truth: “Socialism is as socialism does.” With all the hoopla surrounding Bernie Sanders’ campaign, let us apply this principle to his message. As far as I have read, he has not recommended that the federal government nationalize America’s industries. He has not […]

Written by Gary North on February 20, 2016

copyright

Copyright law is in its terminal phase. I have known this for over 20 years. The Internet is killing it. I am going to discuss a remarkable example of a website that today has 48 million stolen scientific articles online. It is beyond the ability of anybody to control.

By Margaret Thatcher Perhaps it would be best if I began by speaking personally as a Christian, as well as a politician, about the way I see things. Reading recently, I came across the starkly simple phrase: “Christianity is about spiritual redemption, not social reform.” Sometimes the debate on these matters has become too polarised […]

The Moral Legitimacy of Interest and Banking

interest

For [the kingdom of heaven] is as a man traveling into a far country, [who] called his own servants, and delivered unto them his goods. And unto one he gave five talents, to another two, and to another one; to every man he gave according to ability, and straightaway took his journey. Then he that […]
