Natural rights are the gifts of our Creator, not government. It is life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness, describing individual freedom. It only exists in America and is under assault today. Free individuals are the only pebble-droppers; the nails sticking up that government people are afraid of tripping over and seek to hammer down. It also means individual self-interest is more important than are the interest of communities. Obama and modern Democrats are opposed to that, as they are united in their support of Rousseau and Marx, not Jefferson and Madison. Check claysamerica.com for a new book, SAVE PEBBLE DROPPERS & PROSPERITY, soon to be on Amazon.com.

This book sounds wonderful.

I just spent hundreds of dollars on textbooks for this semester, which I thankfully found on Amazon.com and alibris.com for far cheaper than my university bookstore. (A testament to the market: I ordered a book off Amazon at 5:45 p.m. a few nights ago. Just 20 hours later, it was sitting on my kitchen table. That’s pretty neat.)

Many of those books, including a collection of essays on visual culture, glorify denounced economic ideas and tired class theories. A few days in, and I’ve already had to wade through multiple mentions of the “classic labor theory of value” and other ignorant economic declarations.

And then there’s the Mises Institute, publishing a refreshing book like this one and making it available for free here: http://mises.org/books/literature_and_liberty_cantor.pdf

This will be one of the next books I buy. Thanks LvMI.

During a short period of 122 years Esperanto is now in the top 100 languages, out of 6,800 worldwide, according to the CIA World factbook. It is the 22nd most used language in Wikipedia, ahead of Danish and Arabic. It is a language choice of Google, Skype, Firefox and Facebook.

Native Esperanto speakers, (people who have used the language from birth), include financier George Soros, World Chess Champion Susan Polger, Ulrich Brandenberg the new German Ambassador to NATO and Nobel Laureate Daniel Bovet.
