在最近的一次采访中,有人问我为什么自称为“民主社会主义者”的伯尼·桑德斯(Bernie Sanders)似乎在年轻人中获得了如此多的支持。 事实上,根据哈佛最近的一项研究,民意调查显示,桑德斯是 18-29 岁人群中最受欢迎的候选人,而该年龄组中 51% 的人似乎厌倦了“当前形式的资本主义”。

就在四年前,这么多年轻人在国内外听到并支持我关于个人自由、不侵略和不干涉的信息。 我很高兴这么多年轻人被一个主要信息是“我不想主宰你的生活”的候选人所吸引。

当然,社会主义是相反的哲学。 社会主义哲学的核心是管理人们的生活。 它是专制的制度。 谁会心甘情愿地将自己的这么多财产交给国家重新分配给他人? 这就是使用政府武力发挥作用的地方。 社会主义告诉你可以保留多少钱,如何花,如果可以花,必须改变哪些个人习惯才能获得“免费”医疗保健的资格,你必须追求什么样的学习课程有资格获得“免费”教育,等等。

但我们也知道虚假的承诺非常诱人。 社会主义利用了人为错误,想要无所事事。 你应该接受教育,社会主义告诉年轻人,所以我免费给你一个。 他从不告诉学生他将在称为通货膨胀的隐性税收中多次支付教育费用。 或者,学生可能会在大学毕业后因失业而“支付”教育费用,因为他的潜在雇主被迫关闭支付社会主义承诺的所有费用所需的高额税收。

所以我是否感到惊讶,似乎有这么多年轻人被社会主义的诱人谎言所吸引? 好吧,我真的不相信他们有。 他们对被告知是资本主义的制度感到沮丧。 他们对我多年来一直在谈论的同一件事感到愤怒。

我们目前的体系与我们在奥地利经济学派所支持的自由市场相去甚远。 我们有一个任人唯亲、社团主义、通货膨胀主义、监管和管理贸易以有利于特殊利益的系统,以及中央银行的犯罪行为。 不幸的是,由于我们错误和有偏见的教育体系以及主流媒体的无情宣传,许多年轻人被告知他们周围看到的混乱都是“资本主义”造成的。

政治就是让人们对候选人感到兴奋。 我们的努力要长得多。 2007 年第一次参加我的集会的年轻一代现在已经 20 多岁了。 他们正在培养新一代,在许多情况下,他们将在家接受教育,脱离现代公共教育这一宣传机器。 他们明白真正的自由革命不会在投票箱中获胜,而是在思想的战场上获胜。 他们继续学习自由哲学,并支持为我们的斗争提供智力弹药的各种教育组织。 我比以往任何时候都更加乐观,我们的信息正在扎根并根深蒂固。 想法真的可以改变世界。

与许多人希望我们相信的相反,自由革命还活着!

  1. Our current system is far from the free-markets that we in the Austrian school of economics espouse. We have a system of cronyism, corporatism, inflationism, regulated and managed trade to the benefit of special interests, and the criminality of central banking. Unfortunately because of our faulty and biased education system and the relentless propaganda of the mainstream media, many young people are taught that the mess they see all around them is all caused by “capitalism.”

    This is why I defend the minimum wage against people who oppose it because free markets. What free markets? Another commenter put his finger on the real problem when he asked “What will be the minimum for foreigners?” If immigration is not stopped and current illegals either deported or naturalized a higher minimum only means more work for foreigners.

    Occasionally, the Ron Paul followers are accused of being a cult, that is, sometimes people say Ron Paul has a cult following. That claim is absurd. First of all, cult leaders are always charismatic. Ron Paul has no charisma. Heck, he doesn’t even have any personality. He’s about as boring as they get. And yet he does have a devoted following. The reason is inescapable. Its because of his ideas. His message is brutally correct. He is an equal opportunity sacred cow slaughterer.

    But his warnings and advice fall mostly on deaf ears. He is labelled as a kook by the foreign policy establishment and mainstream economists. Never mind that our foreign policy has been a disaster, and central banking around the world, all of whom follow the keynesian or monetarist school of thought have been proven wrong over and over. But they just keep doubling down. Japan has been the keynesian test tube for decades, but they still won’t admit their wacko-bird theories are not working.

    If only that were true. The complete takeover of the education establishment by leftists is bearing fruit after decades of work.

    These kids have been the subject of socialist propaganda since entering the public school system at age 5. They got extra credit for joining marches in high school. They were required to take ethnic and gender studies classes in lieu of the classes on western thought that used to be taught in college, where they learned to hate white people, especially the white people that founded the US. They don’t know who James Madison is, and they think Che Guevara is someone to emulate.

    If they really understood what had been done to them we’d have a bloody revolution. We probably will, eventually, anyway. The future is a lot bleaker than you imagine.

  5. @WorkingClass

    So morons who want government get screwed over by government and the solution is then more government. Nonsense, they are getting what they deserve.

    To paraphrase Diderot, man will never be free until the last last government worker is strangled with the entrails of the last voter.

  6. @Renoman

    Socialism by way of the tribal foragers, crony-capitalism by way of the hierarchical pharaonicists, free markets by way of the 1% who believe in freedom.

    Oh. That’s why free markets don’t exist.

    There is no such thing as a free market. Like a magnetic monopole, it is a theoretical fiction. The closest thing to it would be something like a barter system. As soon as you introduce the concept of money, markets become susceptible to rigging by those empowered to declare what money is and in control of the supply of same. Central banking is an obvious deleterious example of this but the principle applies even if you are on a gold standard.

    Austrian economists fail to understand that what they call “cronyism” or “corporatism” is really just capitalism as it evolves in the real world, as opposed to the theoretical one that the Austrians inhabit.

    革命发生了什么?

    the Revolution is still alive Dr. Paul, but the mantle has been passed on to Donald Trump to wield as our putative champion.

    I am and certainly was one of your biggest supporters, and was extremely hopeful and ready to support your son Rand, if he was even a fraction of the man you are. And even when the neocon rhetoric started to seep from his lips, I was still hopeful, thinking he was just playing the game. But then it became clear..

    “Vladimir Putin’s invasion of Ukraine is a gross violation of that nation’s sovereignty and an affront to the international community.”

    ~ Rand Paul

    Paul: It is important that Russia become economically isolated until all its forces are removed from Crimea….

    and he lied about the Iran deal, deliberately mischaracterizing Iran’s statements on their intentions.

    In short, to answer your question, ‘What Happened to the Revolution?’

    Your son happened to it. He is a huge disappointment and it seem has succumbed to the depravity of treason and corruption that is the US Senate.

    Perhaps one day he can redeem himself, especially by supporting Donald Trump and being a voice for peace and liberty in the Senate.

    Trump is not perfect, but compared to Hillary he’s Thomas Jefferson and Andrew Jackson rolled into one. We all know that Hillary means more war and less liberty, to say the least.

    So now that the mantle has been passed, the leader of the Revolution is Donald Trump, and we all need to align behind him, until such time as he proves that he’s just another stooge of the Fiend, (that your son has regretfully demonstrated his willingness to be).

    BTW, I look forward to your appointment as Treasury Secretary Dr. Paul. God speed to you sir.

    You were asked about 911, and had the National Stage, which everybody with a high 2 digit IQ knows was a Mossad Job, and all you had to say was ‘I support a New investigation’ but you did nothing. You shilled and lied.
    I knew then you were a plant. Or some kind of controlled opposition.
    You wont build a Wall or deport illegals, the end result will be we will no longer have a nation as a result. That among other issues, makes you weak.

  13. Sean2007 说:

    Libertarianism is just a scam to remove what few restraints the system imposes on the ruling elite and allow them to rob us blind, in the name of “freedom.” The fact is capitalism cannot exist without the state, and our current system with private enterprise controlling the state and bending it to its own purposes is precisely how capitalism plays out in the real world. Paul conveniently ignores the fact that is it the private banking cartels that have led us into this mess in the first place. They are allowed to lend out more money than they have essentially stealing it from their depositors to gamble at will and all it takes is a bank run for the whole scam to come crashing down: no government required. He who controls the spice controls the universe and the capitalist class that controls the money supply tends to limit access to club members, How many times has Trump gone bankrupt and been bailed out? And with whose money?

    I am not sure there are many socialists out there who regard Bernie Sanders as one of their own, or who would regard our system of privatized gains and socialized loss as a form of socialism. The rich are protected by a socialist collective while the poor are subjected to the discipline of the market and convinced that any attempt to organize in their collective self-interest as the rich do is an offense against God and “liberty.”

  14. @Rurik

    Well, Rurik, Rand Paul did endorse Donald Trump, which is a start toward his redemption. Whether or not he’ll be a voice for peace and liberty in the Senate, we’ll have to delay judgement. The fact that he’s come out in support of the Donald has given some leverage.
    Indeed, the mantle of the revolution has been passed from Dr. Ron Paul to Trump, who has also pledged to overhaul this nation’s immigration problem and eliminate the unconstitutional Obamacare and replace it with a better system.
    The Donald has also pledged to change America’s foreign policy to make it more similar to the foreign policy advocated by Dr. Paul 4 years ago; i.e., forge friendship and trade with not only Russia and China, but also with all nations. There have been rumors floating around that Trump would consider appointing Dr. Paul as Secretary of State, if he wins the general election. Treasury Secretary sounds very good also.

    The introduction of money does not prevent a free market, sorry. Don’t confuse a potential for manipulation with some purported loss of “free” qualities in the sense intended with “free market’.

    Hi Eileen,

    I suppose I’ll still hold out some hope for Rand. He certainly has the pedigree to be great and do great things, if only he possessed that critical 诚信– that is as rare as it is precious.

    The position of Secretary of State has already been set aside for Pat Buchannan.

    And Ron Paul will be perfect as Secretary of the Treasury

    and Ben Carson Surgeon General

    @mcs_in_ny

    Actually they do understand this but they also get that it’s not a matter of Black or White. It’s not 100% free market or no free market at all. There can be 50% free markets or 80% free markets or 10% free markets, etc. etc.

    Think of it this way, the more free the market, the more liberty and prosperity you will have. No it’s not going to be 100% but if you move from 10% to 50% that is actually a large victory. Change it up and it’s a large defeat.

    The question then becomes this; Are you willing to give up and stop fighting for “free(er)” markets? If so then explain how something other than Free Markets (relatively speaking) is better? Seriously, I read the Communist Manifesto as well, and Marx did a great job of pointing out the flaws in capitalism. Sadly he had no working solution. Do you have one? If so I would be willing to listen with an open mind. (Please don’t say “co-op’s”, nothing in the Austrian School is against them in any way, so that isn’t an alternative but part of what we already suggest as a solution)

  21. Objectivism (Randroids) gets confused with Jeffersonian thinking and poisons the well. No matter. Ron Paul has done us all a great service by teaching us the case against the FED.

  22. @Renoman

    You’ve got the right idea, that’s for sure.

    I’d just say: more like “socialism for the poor and the rich, mostly harsh capitalism for the middle class.”

    Socialism like Capitalism and Marxism, was given birth by secular Jews to serve the interests to the 1% fat cats and deprive the remaining 99% of their share of wealth.

    Even today, America’s Organized Jewry hate people who like to apply socialism in real sense.

    Indian-born Kshama Sawant, a computer engineer and professor (Seattle University) by profession, is the socialist member at Seattle City Council since January 2014. She captured the media headlights for her tiresome campaign to raise minimum wage to \$15 in Seattle. She has expanded funding for social services and blocked, along with housing advocates, an attempt by the Seattle Housing Authority to allow a rent increase of up to 400 percent. She has successfully lobbied for city money to support tent encampments and is fighting for an excise tax on millionaires. And for this she has become the bête noire of America’s 1% fat-cats , Wall Street and the Jewish Lobby.

    I’ll try to add something sensible to the discussion.

    We can look at freedoms in terms of quantity, and then we find powerful trade-offs. For example: I live in a stateless society, without powerful interests to bother me, without anyone to coerce me to anything (I’m in the Wild West), I’m the boss on my own land, the ‘master’ of my fate and captain of my soul, and yet … I lack some basic infrastructure which really frustrates me, it severely limits what I can actually do: in a word, the lack of infrastructure limits my freedoms. Any tosser in New York or in the 21st century has things I want to have – and I don’t. I also lack in terms of a community that is bright enough to recognise the benefits of collective building of such an infrastructure.
    Yes, I have neighbours and try to explain to them. And you know what? You can be a Caruso, but a Caruso in a semi desert is far less effective than a Caruso at a street corner of a city, which in turn is less effective than a Caruso in Carnegie Hall.

    We’re, therefore, very much interested to look at freedoms in terms of quality. What freedoms do we wish? Generally, we want to live pleasant lives, to have fun while doing something that benefits our close ones, ourselves and, ideally, other people. And for that purpose, mobilising the society to build basic infrastructure and cultural connections can give more than it can take. It’s not just that you can be more playful if some of “your basic needs” are met. You will be better off when you can 选择, frequently, what you shall have guaranteed, and what you will fight for. And for such pluralistic choices, one needs some wealth regularly invested in some infrastructure, and some social sophistication also permanently present. It’d be just absurd to heroically fight for them time and again.

    To see what’s the solution, in practical terms, one can look at the past.
    Historians and economists have shown that states can provide such basic conditions without being totalitarian nightmares. In the more distant past, that has been happening in the Far East: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5fIqsJfpkMg . More recently, Michael Spence’s commission on growth and development produced an analysis that shows modern development has happened virtually exclusively in countries that have practiced state dirigism.

    Of course, every state hierarchy tends towards totalitarianism (http://activistteacher.blogspot.com/search/label/hierarchy), so the only way to preserve a state system that gives you what you want and keeps away from else is to shake / test the system as much as you can.

    I continue dreaming of a sophisticated Wild West, and for a Star Trek anarchy. When I see an opportunity for such a thing, I’ll grab it. Until then, I aim for a society with freedoms well-chosen.

    I don’t get all the people who think Trump is interventionist than Rand Paul. You do realize that Trump also denounced the Iran deal, right? Why does he get a free pass but Rand is treated like a traitor?

  27. Rurik 说:

    because Trump says he wants to extend the hand of peace and cooperation with Putin’s Russia, and Rand- the little whore- wants to piss in Putin’s eye by telling lies in service of the Fiend.

    Americans are tired of endless war\$ for the Fiend.

    Trump is untested, and we don’t know what he’ll do. But Rand had a chance to act like his father and be a man of integrity, and instead he crawls around touching the wall, and showing his fealty and lickspittle like abasement like a good little minion of Moloch by telling lies about Putin.

    Trump says a lot of things that I find very troubling. I hate what he says about torture. I hate what he says about Snowden. I don’t like what he says about Iran one bit.

    But the fact is nobody knows where Trump really comes down on these issues, because we all know that right now he’s playing politics and is campaigning. Sure, he might turn out to be a catastrophe, but we all KNOW Hillary would be one, and so support for Trump is obvious.

    And I’ll just have to cross my fingers and hope he puts Snowden in charge of the NSA, like I would do.

    But Rand has betrayed everything that his dad stood for. Honesty and integrity.

    Ron Paul was against the wars, and Rand tries to shill for the MIC and the Zionists by pilling on the war pig wagon against the world’s only statesman, Putin. Who is acting like the only adult in the room and trying to save Syria and the rest of the Middle East and even his own backyard from the ravages of the Fiend gone hog wild foisting wars and slaughter.

    It was Rand’s duty and obligation to point out that Putin’s troubles with Ukraine were orchestrated by Obama’s State Dept. and the referendum in Crimea was hardly an act of aggression, just the opposite in fact.

    There’s just way too many reasons for considering Rand a pathetic disappointment.

    you want irony?

    in a great movie, A Man For All Seasons, there a character in the movie; Thomas More – that is Ron Paul incarnate. Iron integrity and known for his honesty and character

    and then there’s another character, Richard Rich

    known for his ambition, opportunism, treachery and dishonesty

    I still hold out hope that Rand will find his way, but I’m not holding my breath
