Charles Adams is a legendary tax specialist and historian. His book For Good and Evil ranks as among the most influential policy works of the late 20th century. It revealed the largely unknown history of how high taxation has wrecked peace and prosperity from the ancient world to the present, and how tax revolts have been the hidden motivation behind many great political upheavals.

1. The Competition of Crooks
Comments by Michael McKay
Every person that has had the pleasure to listen to Professor Hans-Hermann Hoppe or to read any of his excellent work knows of his razor intellect and crystal clear explanations.
Great news: Dr. Hoppe has a new book out.
Unfortunately, at the moment, it is only available in German (Der Wettbewerb der Gauner, “The Competition of Crooks”).
Fortunately a recent interview by Andreas Marquart at misesinfo.org has been translated into English and can be found in its entirety at www.thegodthatfailed.org.
Here is a tantalizing tidbit from that interview:
“Democracy…is nothing more than an especially insidious form of communism.”
I will bet that most people have NEVER thought of democracy in this way. In the interview, Dr. Hoppe explains why this is the case.
There are several other wonderful — and clarifying – insights as well. I believe his most important is that most people are looking at the wrong “clash of interests … between employers (capitalists) and employees (workers), or between the rich and the poor.”
Professor Hoppe states that “As long as this myth prevails in public opinion, nothing at all will change and disaster is inevitable.”
Then Dr. Hoppe makes this key point:
“A fundamental change can only occur if, instead of this, the correct realization becomes generally accepted that the only antagonistic conflict of interest in society is the one between tax-payers, i.e. the exploited, and tax-consumers, i.e. the exploiters.”
Dr Hoppe states that the key to being liberated from the parasitism of the State is a change in “the class consciousness of the population.”

2. Euro Bank Holidays Ahead
By Andy Duncan
And no, we’re not talking about the nice kind of English bank holiday in the sunshine.
We’re talking about the kind of ‘bank holiday’ where you are frozen out of your own assets, and then these assets are stripped of value to save banks, governments, bureaucrats, and politicians from having to face up to the consequences of their own mistakes. After they have eaten their fill of your wealth, you are then handed the scraps (if you’re lucky).
Some interesting thoughts then, below, from Sir Martin Jacomb, about how the same governments which lied the people of Europe into the horrible paper scrip known as the Euro, should lie them out of it, too:
“5 Day Bank Holiday” To Prepare For Collapse of Euro
Here’s a quote, with my emphasis:
“Experience shows that currency break-ups, like devaluations, have to be handled so as to avoid anticipatory speculative activity. The essential requirement is a single, unequivocal decision to revert to national currencies, reached confidentially by all 17 governments and announced without prior notice.”
I love the political process.
Deception is openness. Ignorance is knowledge. Lies are truth.
3. Another Surveillance Law: One More Step Towards the Big Brother State
By Sean Gabb
At the beginning of April 2012, the BBC and a couple of newspapers reported that the British Government was considering a new surveillance law. This would allow it to monitor the telephone calls, text messages, e-mails and website visits of everyone in the United Kingdom. There was a flurry of debate about civil rights and the need to protect us all against terrorists. There was a side argument between those who said the law was required by the European Union, and those who said it would be in breach of European Union law. Since then, the various debates have gone quiet. Possibly, the Ministers have decided to drop the matter. More likely, the initial leak was to soften us up for something less ambitious to be announced in the Queen’s Speech. The Ministers will say they have “listened” to our concerns – and will use the lesser measure they had in mind all the time as a precedent for moving to the full measure in later stages. This being so, whether greater or lesser, another step will have been taken to a Big Brother police state. Continue Reading
4. The Fastest Way to Understand the Achilles Heel of Socialism – and Government
Recently we posted on RadioFreeMarketWorldReport.com the excellent one hour and twenty minute interview of Andy Duncan by Mr. Greg Moffit discussing Hans-Hermann Hoppe’s historically important book Democracy: The God That Failed.
However, for those of you that have only eight minutes to spare we have prepared an edited segment where Andy brilliantly outlines the essential two problems of Socialism:
I highly recommend you top off your coffee cup or glass of wine and listen to the entirety of that excellent interview (which you can find here).
