Lilburne released on bail from prison. Fairfax and Cromwell suppress a threatened mutiny at the army rendezvous at Corkbush Field in Hertfordshire Ware. He rejects these on 28 Dec. The pink area is the old part of the city which is surrounded by a customs wall with entry gates which was build in the s to help the Farmers General collect taxes. The orange area is enclosed by a new wall of fortifications which surrounded the city and was build between and had a circumference of 33 km.
The outer ring of red and green shapes are a series of 14 stand-alone forts and barracks which also surrounded the city. That was the cry of the captives of Egypt, the slaves of Spartacus, the peasants of the Middle Ages, and more recently of the bourgeoisie oppressed by the nobility and religious corporations, of the workers oppressed by masters and guilds.
That was the cry of all those who found their property confiscated by monopoly and privilege. That was the burning aspiration of all those whose natural rights had been forcibly repressed. It comes with two translations of essays by Molinari in the Appendix , which are also available separately:. In the lates in Paris there was an extraordinary group of economists who had gathered around the Guillaumin publishing firm to explore and promote free market ideas. One of these was the young Belgian economic journalist Gustave de Molinari who was just starting out on his career which would lead him to eventually becoming one of the most important and prolific free market economists in Europe in the 19th century.
Outside the Assembly the economists wrote scores of books and pamphlets to intellectually defeat socialist ideas at both the popular and the academic level. Molinari begins by arguing that society is governed by natural, immutable and absolute laws which cannot be ignored either by conservatives or socialists, and that the foundation for a peaceful and prosperous society is the right to private property. He then proceeds to explain the free market position on a host of topics to his skeptical audience.
Some of the more controversial topics Molinari discusses include the following: intellectual property, eminent domain laws, public goods such as roads, rivers, and canals, inheritance laws, the ban on forming trade unions, free trade, the state monopoly of money, the post office, state subsidies to theaters and libraries, subsidies to religious groups, public education, free banking, government regulated industries, marriage and population growth, the private provision of police and defense, and the nature of rent. On all these issues, Molinari shows himself to be a radical supporter of laissez-faire economic policies.
Abstract: Austrian capital theory is applied to the study of how ideas in this case classical liberal or libertarian ideas have been produced, distributed, and consumed. It is based upon an examination of three key historical examples — the Anti-Corn Law League in the early s, the Political Economists in Paris during the s, and the activities of the Institute of Economic Affairs in London in post-war Britain.
It is argued that there is a long structure of production in the realm of ideas as there is for capital goods, with highest order goods the production of high theory most removed from ultimate consumption politicians, ordinary people, voters , and with several middle order stages which serve as intermediary steps along the way production of ideas for college professors, intellectuals, members of think tanks, journalists, and lobbyists.
I would like to begin by shamelessly stealing some ideas from Ed Lopez. He reminds us of the striking, parallel thinking of two widely divergent economic theorists, namely John Maynard Keynes and Friedrich Hayek. To begin with the latter:. In the light of recent history it is somewhat curious that this decisive power of the professional secondhand dealers in ideas should not yet be more generally recognized.
The political development of the Western World during the last hundred years furnishes the clearest demonstration. Socialism has never and nowhere been at first a working-class movement.

It is by no means an obvious remedy for the obvious evil which the interests of that class will necessarily demand. It is a construction of theorists, deriving from certain tendencies of abstract thought with which for a long time only the intellectuals were familiar; and it required long efforts by the intellectuals before the working classes could be persuaded to adopt it as their program. Emphasis added. Thirteen years earlier Keynes expressed something very similar, but using different though still somewhat contemptuous terminology,. Indeed, the world is ruled by little else.

Practical men, who believe themselves to be quite exempt from any intellectual influences, are usually the slaves of some defunct economist. Madmen in authority, who hear voices in the air, are distilling their frenzy from some academic scribbler of a few years back. I am sure that the power of vested interests is vastly exaggerated compared with the gradual encroachment of ideas. Not, indeed, immediately, but after a certain interval … [S]oon or late, it is ideas, not vested interests, which are dangerous for good or evil.
What I would like to do is to offer some specific historical examples of such transmission of ideas and to use the Hayekian theory of capital structure to help explain the process by which this transmission occurs, and the types of people involved in it. In this paper I conclude that Bastiat was in fact a theorist of considerable skill and originality who had conceived of a multi-volume work on social and economic theory the outline of which I have been able to reconstruct from his scattered remarks:.
Not having time to complete this project because of his rapidly failing health he died of throat cancer at the age of 49 , Bastiat focused the time remaining to him to working on the Economic Harmonies. I have identified 16 elements of his economic thought which I believe demonstrate his sophistication and originality as an economic theorist.
These include:. For two or so decades after WW2 Picasso drew many images which were used for posters for various peace congresses. These consisted mainly of his classic peace dove images, or images of flowers. With the Korean War he changed tack and drew a series of works showing the actual killing rather than the aftermath of attacks. It was one of these tank-like vehicles which he drew for the anti-Vietnam War march in Washington.
Stephen A. He asks his listeners the following important question and then gives a devastating answer to it:.
I answer; a day that reveals to him, more than all other days in the year, the gross injustice and cruelty to which lie is the constant victim. To him, your celebration is a sham; your boasted liberty, an unholy license; your national greatness, swelling vanity; your sounds of rejoicing are empty and heartless; your denunciations of tyrants, brass fronted impudence; your shouts of liberty and equality, hollow mockery; your prayers and hymns, your sermons and thanksgivings, with all your religious parade, and solemnity, are, to him, mere bombast, fraud, deception, impiety, and hypocrisy-a thin veil to cover up crimes which would disgrace a nation of savages.
There is not a nation on the earth guilty of practices, more shocking and bloody, than are the people of these United States, at this very hour. Read its preamble, consider its purposes. Is slavery among them? Is it at the gateway? Very few know, or want to know, that twelve American presidents owned slaves at some point in their lives and that eight of them owned slaves while serving as President see list below.
Thus, for 50 years during the pre-Civil War period a slave-owner was in the White House. It is also the case that although the slave trade had been abolished in Washington D. Located at the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts. Source: Mary V. The Journal of the Libertarian Alliance, Vol.
