    • This, my dear friends, is perhaps the very best post on “liberty” I’ve seen. Of course most “libertarian” writers (quotes intended and necessary) are not going to like it. First, England slings mud at all their icons. Second, most of us have become so ingrained in the process of what I like to call “collectivist boilerplate” that it would be difficult to reconstruct editorial mindset to fit the requirements of freedom. So, let’s not rock the boat. Everyone’s gonna know what we’re talking about anyhow.

      Thanks for posting this. I’d love to have met Delmar England. He died before his time. Sam

    • Wow, what a masterpiece this is. I’m amazed there is only one comment.

      Ridge Runner, Sam Spade, any bio info on Delmar would be welcomed. Google found a bunch of Delmar Englands, but none fit.

      As I have learned from reading Thomas Sowell, their are no categorical solutions, just incremental trade offs. Central planners don’t understand that the more incremental decisions they take away from individuals, and make them categorical decisions for everybody, {except for themselves} the more STRIFE they create between us and them.

      I do not agree with the conclusion by K. Silber that Solwell’s Vision is also Blurred. Perhaps I’ll come back and address that author’s lament and or my assessment, however the following briefly introduces Thomas Solwell’s wide covering insight and adds additional clarity to these issues.

      How I freed myself (ver 2) 1st Aid Emergency and Gift Package

    • Marxism is envy-driven.
      Statism is the use of envy to gain more control and power.

    • Good article. But what caused our culture to normalise envy? It was political altruism and the consequent ‘sanction of the victim’ that was to blame. Marx in his day would have been way less credible than most of today’s socialists in terms of intellectual influence on society

    • Progressivism in politics and public schooling.

      As its root, Progressivism motivates the people to ignore the 10th Commandment as a means to getting them to use government to break the 7th…

    • I had pro-socialist ideas in my youth. Not out of envy, but in the hope that socialism would bring about progress in the third world. I come from parents who were traders and held vast amount of coffee and tea platantions in central Africa.

      Fidel Castro came from a fortunate background too. He thought socialism would end up poverty and unjustice in Cuba. That too was not out of envy.

      However, that does not mean I condone socialism. I visited socialist countries and was quite upset. I then began to be sceptic about that system. Thanks to Mises literature, I came to understand why socialism failed and free market system prospered.

      But, some doubts have recently creeped into my mind concerning capitalist system too.
      According to reports from certain influential pro-market circles and other extremely rich elites, human population is too big and has to be reduced from about 7 billion to 1 or more billion people to pave way for a new society, a new world order!

      What then is the rationale that has arisen out of that free market system? I think if people have a say, most will choose to be part of the 1 or so billion and not of the 6 billion to be eliminated!

      It seems therefore capitalism cannot sustain the whole of humanity, but only a portion of it. If so, that is quite worrying indeed. And that will imply that the law of jungle will still persist even within the frame-work of a free market system!

    • Hate kills, greed kills, anger kills, guns kill, envy kills – I think NOT, because each of the forgoing are just WORDS and words don’t kill. Individual human-beings (monsters) kill (take a life) deprive another living-breathing-thinking-being of their life. There may have been many or all of those “emotions” present in the individual that pulled the trigger that threatened to take a life at the baseball field, but it required research and planning to get to the point of acting on those emotions to carry out the threat. There is a saying that 3% lead and 97% follow. I don’t know why, but is seems to be fairly accurate throughout history. A part of what keeps the statistic going is that the 3% know how to manipulate the 97% with the structure of the language. When you can convince the world that “envy” kills, the 97% don’t believe that they have to be responsible for the way they conduct themselves. They were just possessed by a green eyed monster.
