Why Nazism Was Socialism and Why Socialism Is Necessarily Totalitarian

by George Reisman May 1, 2018 My purpose today is to make just two main points: (1) To show why Nazi Germany was a socialist state, not a capitalist one. And (2) to show why socialism, understood as an economic system based on government ownership of the means of production, positively requires a totalitarian dictatorship. Though Hitler and his followers could not have been clearer on the point, outside Germany the identification of Nazi Germany as a socialist state was one of the many great contributions of Ludwig von Mises. When one remembers that the word “Nazi” was an...

Korea: What Each of the Negotiating Powers Needs to Win

by George Friedman May 1, 2018 The leaders of North and South Korea held talks last week, and that in itself is significant. But there are five players involved in these negotiations: North Korea, South Korea, the United States, China and Japan. Each has very different imperatives forcing its hand, and each has varying amounts of influence over the situation. Some can be excluded from the deal but not all, and finding a common basis for an agreement among even three or four players is difficult. It can be done, but only with concessions that would undermine crucial interests...

The Difference Between Anti-Aging and True Regenerative Medicine, Part 2: Geroprotection

by Patrick Cox April 29, 2018 Last week, I wrote the first part of this series to differentiate induced tissue regeneration (iTR) and geroprotectors. In a nutshell, it is the difference between rejuvenation and regeneration. To recap, ITR is an approach to regenerative medicine based on the theory—and quite a bit of evidence—that our cells can perform an embryonic reboot. Normally, when cells are damaged or wear out, they make their own replacements by copying themselves. Like a repeatedly duplicated photocopy, cells degrade with each additional reproduction. ITR therapy would cause cells to access their original embryonic blueprint. Drawing...

The Culture of Death and Growing Totalitarianism

by Newt Gingrich April 28, 2018 The British government’s decisions to allow two critically ill babies to die in two years is a natural reflection of the culture of death and the steady increase in totalitarian tendencies among Western governments. Last year, the British government ordered life support removed from Charlie Gard, ending his life when he was just 11 months old. Now, Alfie Evans – just 23 months old – has received what amounts to the same death sentence. On Monday, he was removed from life support by court order – against the wishes of his parents. Then,...

The Revolution of Kanye West

EDITOR’S NOTE: Some conservatives are poo-hooing Kanye’s tweets, on grounds that Kanye doesn’t line up as a 100% movement conservative. But they’re missing the point. If just 20% of African Americans started voting Republican, the Democrats could never win the White House again. And neither party could afford to ignore the tragedy of the inner cities or the very real inequities leftist policies have created and exploited. — RDM   by Mark Tapson April 27, 2018 I love the way Candace Owens thinks — KANYE WEST (@kanyewest) April 21, 2018 Hell hath no fury like leftists spurned by blacks.
