Two Champions Of Liberty
Published on : Monday, January 03, 2011
Frederic Bastiat, the most brilliant Economic journalist of all times passed away last week 160 years back. He has a great influence on libertarians all over the world, even after more than one and a half century after his death. Some of his ideas bear striking resemblance to that of Ayn Rand. They spoke obvious truths which were habitually ignored. Few were as good at reductio ad absurdum as Rand and Bastiat, writes Shanu A in Liberty Institute website.
Our Socialist Constitution
Published on : Sunday, July 18, 2010
The Supreme Court dismissed as withdrawn a petition challenging the insertion of the word "socialism" in the indian constitution. The writ petition was submitted by an NGO. Every political party in India should swear allegiance to Socialism. It is not compatible with Individual liberty and Capitalism. We have bought many of the socialist proposals, writes Shanu A.
The Road To Economic Security
Published on : Thursday, July 15, 2010
Ambitious Goverment plans to legislate economic security into existence have failed miserably. It is forgotten that institutionalizing coercion can't lead to security-economic or otherwise. Economic security is a corollary of freedom and peace, writes Shanu A.
Should Government Fund Science?
Published on : Tuesday, June 15, 2010
The government of India has decided to sanction grants to science departments of different colleges and universities in Bihar for strengthening their infrastructure, including laboratories.Contentious as the topic is, the libertarian position on the issue is clear-the government should have no business in funding science, writes Shanu A.
The Case For Open Borders
Published on : Sunday, May 30, 2010
Arizona passed the toughest immigration law of United States recently. Thinkers across the spectrum opposes an open border policy. The anti-libertarian position, however, is without any scientific merit. The notion that open borders would increase crime rate and aggravate the unemployment problem were blasted several times-So was the claim that open borders make no sense as long as the welfare state exists, writes Shanu A.
On Anti-Immigration Law
Published on : Sunday, May 30, 2010
Few people bother to find out the facts behind Arizona's Anti-immigration law, S.B. 1070. There is overwhelming support for the law among the American public. The law, contrary to popular perception, authorizes officials to determine a person's immigration status during lawful contact."Concealing or shielding illegal immigrants" too is punishable by law.
Against Censorship
Published on : Wednesday, May 12, 2010
The ban on pornographic websites is just a symptom of a much larger ideological problem. Our individual freedoms are at stake. Today they ban pornographic sites. Tomorrow they might ban ideological websites and books. What begins with a pornographic website ends with a philosophical treatise.
Foreign Investment In Education
Published on : Friday, May 07, 2010
Educational services are to be provided by the market, and market alone. It offends reason to believe that the poor will be made worse off by this bill. It is obvious that many students who can’t otherwise afford a foreign education will benefit from foreign universities setting up shops in India, writes Shanu A.
Insider Trading:How Fair Is It?
Published on : Tuesday, April 27, 2010
No matter the nature of laws and no matter what Government does, inside information can't be completely wiped out from deal. People will be forced to keep away from such deals out of the fear the Government and regulatory bodies will crack the whip. It is not only preposterous, but disastrous. Let’s not see Life as a competition, a horse race in which the weights on horses are to be equaled, writes Shanu A.
Education Is Not A Birth Right
Published on : Sunday, April 04, 2010
The Right of Children to Free and Compulsory Education Act, needless to mention, is based on the notion that education is a birth right. It should be obvious that there are no such free gifts. Positive “rights” do not exist, as it would mean infringing the rights of others-specifically, their property rights. No man should be legally obliged to provide others with particular goods and services, writes Shanu A.
