  • Is scarcity permanent?  Is abundance possible?  I have read some utopian writings outside of the economics sphere vilifying the need for money (a unit of exchange) as if we have been brainwashed into believing that a state of abundance is a myth thereby creating a disenfranchised and lethargic society.  Is this an absurd ideal or a distant possibility?  why and how?

  • The State will never be abolished because it does provide a valuable service! Thus, rather than being abolished it will be defined and refined just as property rights/human rights are defined and refined. The two go hand in hand. The role of government is to protect persons and property from fraud and violence. As property rights/human rights are defined and refined then the potential exists for the State to exist in a proper form. One of the ways to move towards a classical liberalism society is to strengthen property rights. As we all know they are being weakened now. But every person can appreciate their own property rights so there is a common interest in fighting back against the mistaken role of the State. This is all a part of the education that leads to an understanding of the connection between liberty and prosperity.
