    Dominance, Sharing, and Privacy (DSP), The Three Principles of Sociality

    Dominance, Sharing, and Privacy gives us a simplified (maybe oversimplified), and intuitive way to categorize human sociality. Instead of thinking of social structures as being diverse and too complicated to be categorized, these three categories allow us to classify behaviors that address conflict as one of three types or a combination of the three.  For example, might makes right is not really a property norm but it is a dominance strategy. The ethic that the world belongs to everyone is not an alternative property norm, it is the nullification of property in favor of a sharing norm.  The violent defense of a territory is not a might makes right or dominance behavior but is the defense of privacy. The reluctance to intrude on others prior establish territory is not just a fear of retaliation but a respect for privacy.   For moe read: Dominance, Sharing, and Privacy (DSP), The Three Principles of Sociality

    The Rise and Fall of Society

    The Rise and Fall of Society This book is one of the best expositions of economics and politics ever written. It was Chodorov’s last book and the one most overlooked. It’s tragic. It’s great. It explains central economic ideas from the Austrian tradition, and offers up a highly sophisticated theory of the state and its operations. It is one of the books that cannot be overlooked.

    Are The Seeds Of Fascism Planted By Socialism?

    Bureaucracy is an affliction of largeness in the business world even in a free market economy but the difference is that in a free market economy the inefficiencies caused by the bureaucracy will enable their competitors to flourish causing the bureaucratic firm to lose customers and, to have to downsize thus purging itself from bureaucracy, or fail. Intervention by the government always creates some barrier that in turn always creates some kind of bureaucracy somewhere. These are the seeds of fascism that are sown by socialism.
