"The core of racism is the notion that the individual is meaningless and that membership in the collective — the race — is the source of his identity and value. … The notion of ‘diversity’ entails exactly the same premises as racism — that one’s ideas are determined by one’s race and that the source of an individual’s identity is his ethnic heritage."

— Peter Schwartz

Timeline of the events leading up to the dropping of the atomic bombs. 

anunreliablesource said: Good morning, I think I will ask you something a writing prompt if you will.. As an Anarchist, we all know you are anti government and anti taxes, would you be open to a flat tax system since it seems as Anarchism might not be a near future happening in our country.

I’m completely against the idea of a flat tax.  Must for the same reasons I’m against Right to work laws, school choice/voucher laws, and any other legislation that proposes to fix a statist problem with a statist solution.  For one, they don’t and will never work.  And they also give off the impression that problems created by the state can be solved by the state. 

Which is something every libertarian/anarchist should be weary of and out right oppose. 

Reform, when spoken by the state, is just a code word for more rules and regulations that will just benefit some special interest. 

Tax reform in the guise of a flat tax would be no different. 

When people propose a “flat tax” they do to try to eliminate tax loop holes.  But as Mises so profoundly pointed out, the free market thrives on loop holes.   Libertarians shouldn’t try to eliminate loop holes.  They should be trying to find new, better, and more creative loop holes. 

By attempting to close the loopholes the tax reformers are implying that the government really does own everything.  They have the “moral” right to everyones property and when someone avoids theft through a loop hole that is wrong. 

I think it is self evident that we own ourselves and we are entitled to our earnings and property. 

"Collectivism, unlike individualism, holds the group as the primary, and the standard of moral value."

Something clever and catchy that everyone will reblog.
