There Are Three Kinds of Lies: Lies, Damned Lies, and CPI Statistics

CPI-official-v-PeterSchiff

I believe that when Mark Twain made his famous quip about statistics, he actually had Bureau of Labor Statistic bureaucrats in mind. The U.S. government claims that the official inflation rate, known as the Consumer Price Index, has been holding steady at around 2% to 3% per year. Personal experience and a wealth of data contradict this “official” statistic.…

Meat Packing Lies: Exposing The Fiction Of Upton Sinclair’s The Jungle

Swift_Brands_South_Chicago_IL_meat_packing_plant_circa_1917

As a person who advocates for the elimination of the coercively funded state and the supremacy of property rights, I often find myself involved in arguments over the need for inspection and regulation of food and drug products.  Typically one of the first things I’m told to read is Upton Sinclair’s muckraking novel “The Jungle,” which supposedly exposes…

How To Govern A Nation, By A 2600 Year Old Philosopher

Tao-Te-Ching

The Tao Te Ching is my all time favorite philosophical work.  It was written around the 6th century BC by a Chinese sage named Lao Tzu, who was a record keeper for the Zhou Dynasty court.  The text forms the backbone of Taoist philosophy.  It’s an easy read, not too long, yet it is crammed full of…

Terence McKenna – Understanding and Imagination in the Light of Nature

McKenna

If you’ve never heard of Terence McKenna before, you are in for a treat.  McKenna was an American philosopher who focused on the nature of consciousness and its relationship with psychedelic drugs.  One of his long standing theories about the nature of conscious evolution, that I find to be very compelling, was that primitive man encountered psychedelic mushrooms, and…
