Provoking Another 9/11

In terms of increased power over the population, the payoff from 9/11 for the FedGov has been rich indeed. All it has been doing overseas for the last 13 years suggests it wants another one, and the Dear Leader's speech last night confirms he won't bother waiting for anything as tedious as permission from Congress as required by the supreme law.
That's the theme of It's That Date Again, out today as the ZGBlog.

The Rand Paul Betrayal


ISIS has been portrayed as such a vicious band of thugs that it's rather tempting to abandon one's principles of non-intervention and go bomb them back to the Stone Age. The question is quite a good test of whether one is, or is  not, committed to the zero-government ideal.
Last week, Rand Paul spectacularly failed that test. Details here, in today's ZGBlog.

75 years ago today

Chamberlain declared war on Germans (listen here) so changing history for the worse, and sealing the fate of about 64 million human beings. He was tricked into so doing by FDR. Governments are addicted to war.
Despite that obvious addiction, the political class begs for a restoration of "faith in government," especially when election time looms. Today in Advanded-Auction Time, the ZGBlog suggests why the plea should be ignored.

Off With His Head

The loathsome behavior of the proto-government of the new Islamic State, in beheading James Foley, is being used by Obama as an excuse for another Mid East intervention. He will never learn; none of them will, they are totally reprobate and elimination is the only fix. Today's ZGBlog explores.

The Right to Assemble


What's its future, in a zero government society? - yesteday's ZGBlog explores Ferguson, and finds surprises.

Ferguson goes off-script

In today's Zero Government Blog, I suggest that the situation in Ferguson, MO was scripted in advance - but, over the weekend, passed out of the authors' control. Enjoy Theater in Missouri.

Insider Trading

Among the many ways in which government hinders the task of earning a good living it its mindless campaign against the free flow of information. Today's ZGBlog adds yet one more reason to end its existence.

Striking for the Boss

Last month the staff at my local grocery went on strike. The story is so unusual that last Friday, it was given nationwide exposure on the News Hour. Perhaps you saw it.
Today's Zero Government Blog summarizes the situation and corrects some of PBS' errors.

August, 1914

The war that began the bloodiest century in human history did not start just because five powerful governments made massive blunders. It started because those governments existed, and so were capable of making them.

Recently there have been some fine articles written about the origins of WW-I, but none that I saw revealed that perception. So today's Zero Government Blog makes good the omission.
