    A Theory of Socialism and Capitalism

    TAGS  Calculation and Knowledge Interventionism Political Theory Hans-Hermann Hoppe's first treatise in English — actually his first book in English — and the one that put him on the map as a social thinker and economist to watch. He argued that there are only two possible archetypes in economic affairs: socialism and capitalism. All systems are combinations of those two types. The capitalist model he defines as pure protection of private property, free association, and exchange — no exceptions. All deviations from that ideal are species of socialism, with public ownership and interference with trade.Narrated by Jim Vann.Download audio file READ MORE

    Liberty, Dicta & Force

     TAGS  Big Government Political Theory  Louis E. Carabini Advancing social ideas that do not demand obedience or compliance requires far more personal patience than simply forcing others to comply via the political ballot box. The widely held idea that dicta and force can serve a useful purpose will eventually fade into backward thinking in the so-called public sector as it has in the private sector. Time, nature, reason, and the human spirit will see to that. Irrespective of good intentions or the approval by consensus, nature's unrelenting feedback will gradually drive ruling political authorities to extinction.Narrated by Daniel Bennett.Download audio fileREAD MORE
