Afghanistan End Game
September 10, 2010
This is a dangerous time in Afghanistan for the West. As we have covered in numerous articles, Afghanistan is a war that the West wants desperately to win. This runs counter to the point of view of many in the alternative news community who believe that the Wes ...
Is It Deflation Yet?
September 09, 2010
Issues of inflation and deflation did not seem so important earlier in the 2000s, but the inflation versus deflation debate has heated up lately. The above article that we have excerpted has attracted considerable attention on the blogosphere, maybe because it ...
Let's Talk About Natural Rights
September 09, 2010
When various skeptics question the soundness of the American political system, one of their targets is the idea of human nature. After all, the founders took their political philosophy mainly from John Locke who thought human nature does exist and, based on wha ...
EU Fizzling
September 08, 2010
We have mentioned many times before that "austerity" was the wrong prescription for Europe. But the idea many have is that lazy European socialists deserve what they get. This is in fact, part of a dominant social theme, "The socialists have ruined Europe for E ...
Big Science Goes Broke?
September 08, 2010
We've written a good deal about big, government-funded science. Whenever we do, we get defense feedbacks from those who are somehow invested in the process. These feedbacks make it clear that in the 21st century – unlike the 20 preceding ones – things are " ...
Successful Economic Policies? For Whom?
September 08, 2010
Last week, in the wake of another uptick in the official unemployment rate, the administration continued to claim that their economic policies were working, just not fast enough. This administration inherited an unemployment rate of 7.7% and promised a peak of ...
Here We Go Again
September 08, 2010
Innumerable arguments and research have been produced showing that government stimulus is useless. Despite what President Obama and his cheerleaders in the academy, like Princeton's Paul Krugman, seem to believe (or at least say), there is no evidence that gove ...
TIME Spreads the Government-Wealth Meme
September 07, 2010
The Daily Bell analyzes the dominant social themes of the elite and thus it is natural that the Bell should be in the forefront of pointing out that the mainstream media presents these fear-based promotions. One of the ways, ironically, that the elite runs its ...
Combating HAARP Suspicions
September 07, 2010
Though hardly any of it seems to resonate with the American mainstream press, the rest of the globe is alive with conspiracy theories about American military power, 9/11, HAARP and other maleficent and perhaps mythical US schemes for global domination - full sp ...
EU Treasury Overkill?
September 06, 2010
In the other article in today's Daily Bell, we focus on how the elite back-story is in a sense falling apart with the foundering of the global warming promotion. We find much the same elements at work when it comes to the EU, which is being forced into existenc ...
Failure of the Famine Meme
September 06, 2010
There are plenty of people who don't and never will believe in organized fear-based promotions orchestrated by a shadowy, familial power elite. But it is this publications raison d'etre to discuss these promotions, point them out to those who wish to accept the ...
Nathaniel Branden on Mastering the Six Pillars of Esteem and Honoring One's-Self
September 05, 2010
The Daily Bell is pleased to present an exclusive interview with Dr. Nathaniel Branden. Dr. Branden (left) is a practicing psychotherapist in Los Angeles and also does corporate consulting. Dr. Branden offers workshops, seminars, and conferences on applying sel ...
US Fed Gains Power, Loses Credibility?
September 04, 2010
Despite such statements from Ben Bernanke, we would venture the observation that there is an ever-growing perception within the alternative news community (especially among the hard-money websites) that the Fed and central banking in general constitute an illeg ...
The Mind Conspirators
September 04, 2010
More and more Americans today are coming to understand the terrible truth about our Federal Government -- that it seeks to dominate us as citizens, to mold us into a society of dutiful Stepford Wives totally beholden to the wishes of elite politicians, bureaucr ...
Kenya – New World Building Block
September 03, 2010
It would be nice to think that the new Kenyan constitution is going to be helpful to the country and to Africa generally. But when we read the constitution we find as usual these days that the power of the people is vested in the state. The dominant social them ...
Psychic Regulation
September 03, 2010
We have been writing about regulation lately because the regulatory state is one of the very biggest of all power-elite themes. The financial crisis has actively fanned the flames of regulation. But at some point, regulatory society must surely crosses the divi ...
Revisiting Wealth Redistribution
September 03, 2010
It is time to bring this ruse to an end. Those people's scam should be shut down. Their phony authority to take from everyone so they can use it as they see fit - in the name that they are the nice guys who redistribute wealth while we the greedy bunch intent o ...
Bank Run 2011?
September 02, 2010
Here at the Daily Bell, we long ago adopted the position that the Great Recession of the late first-decade of the 2000s is nothing like previous economic downturns. Several years ago we came to the conclusion that this crisis marked the unraveling of the curren ...
Mises Shakes the World?
September 02, 2010
We are returning to the "Spreading Hayek, Spurning Keynes" Wall Street Journal article to answer the question that Ryan McMaken asks in his fine article at LewRockwell.com (and then answers judiciously as well). We are returning as well because this is an incre ...
DC Begins the Bust Up
September 01, 2010
So now the government is to step in and undo companies that are "headed" for collapse. This seems to us yet another step forward into a kind of bizarre alternative universe where free-markets are controlled and free-enterprise is managed. Anyone who has lived m ...
Thorium Cures the Free Market
September 01, 2010
We have lost track of the new energy solutions being offered on the Internet, which is certainly large energy companies' worst nightmare. Solutions abound from cars that run on water or natural gas to more obscure and less immediately comprehensible presentatio ...
Tempted by One Size Fits All
September 01, 2010
For most of human history it used to be standard practice for parents to insist that their children not only live by principles the parents have found to be sound but also to adopt all sorts of practices of dress, play, work, taste and so forth that they approv ...
Boetkke Promotion Redux
August 31, 2010
We confess here that we have gone as far as we can with this analysis. We are not qualified to speak to the issue of Hayek versus Mises from the point of view of the Kochs - as Lew Rockwell and others around him can. We know that Hayek was likely not as doctrin ...
Obama Admin Calls US Education Failure
August 31, 2010
The Hill never met a large-scale socialist program it couldn't analyze and present with resolute clarity. This is what passes for journalism these days on Capitol Hill. Other publications are not much better and now that we think of it, the Washington Post is p ...
Iraq – An End or an Escalation?
August 31, 2010
Amid much fanfare last week, the last supposed "combat" troops left Iraq as the administration touted the beginning of the end of the Iraq War and a change in the role of the United States in that country. Considering the continued public frustration with the w ...
Frank Rich's Prejudice
August 31, 2010
Karl Marx was famous for, among other things, claiming that everyone always promotes his or her economic interest. This is something he actually had in common with non-Marxists classical economists. Most economists, in fact, believe that we are all motivated by ...
WSJ Discovers the Austrians & Boettke – but not the Mises Institute
August 30, 2010
Peter Boettke is a terrific spokesperson for Austrian economics and has been at it for years. He deserves all the credit he can get for being in the right place at the right time - and correct about economic history as well. We here at the Bell wish we had inte ...
Australia Next Afghan Domino?
August 30, 2010
There are only a few tribes left to gather into a nation-state – chief among them the Pashtuns. Tribal cultures cannot be allowed to stand if the West is to enter the brave new world of its elite's choosing. This is why the Afghan war, waged on arid, mountain ...
Most Americans Just Don't Get It
August 30, 2010
It bothers me to no end that millions of Americans simply don't get just how dangerous this current administration's views are, especially about the nature of our basic rights. I suppose I should not be surprised, given the utterly perverted primary and seconda ...
Steve Forbes on Overseas Wars, the Coming Gold Standard and the Rise of Citizen Agitation
August 29, 2010
The Daily Bell is pleased to present an exclusive interview with Steve Forbes. Mr. Forbes is Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Forbes Media. He is also Editor-in-Chief of Forbes magazine. The company's flagship publication, Forbes, is the nation's leading ...
Tea Party Infighting?
August 28, 2010
This blog-article, while not "mainstream" of itself, touches on plenty of mainstream issues. It was also posted after being written on the "conservative" RedState website, and we found the discussion that took place there to be enlightening in terms of what is ...
BIS: Trading With the Enemy – The Whole Story
August 28, 2010
This special report links Switzerland's sometimes regrettable World War Ii activities with specific evidence suggesting a possible revenue trail from the Nazi gold sales to the Bank for International Settlements, located in Basel, Switzerland. This "bankers ban ...
False Lure of an Infrastructure Bank
August 27, 2010
This is an interesting article because it acknowledges what free-market economic analysis has pointed out emphatically ever since the economic crisis began – that it was driven by a reckless and inflationary fiat money expansion. The New Republic article does ...
More Vaccination Questions
August 27, 2010
It certainly seems to us that the powers-that-be standing behind many of these pharmaceutical companies and their "medical model" continue to do whatever they can to intimidate those who would raise questions about vaccines and their side effects. The Swine Flu ...
The End of Global Banking Misery?
August 26, 2010
Western command-and-control systems are worldwide now. In fact, of course, this is a dominant social theme: "The West's economic perspective is a global one because of its efficiency and it is necessary to deal with it in a global way." We disagree with this pe ...
Meme of the Mosque
August 26, 2010
From our humble point of view, the controversy surrounding the mosque near Ground Zero has already done the job it is supposed to do. Its main duty might be seen, from a promotional standpoint, as one of bringing American's attention back again to the realizati ...
Is It an Elite Depression?
August 25, 2010
In analyzing the memes of the Anglo-American power elite and its berserker attempts at creating global governance, we face the conundrum of whether what is going on is part of a larger plan or the crumbling of a plan. This is not just a question for the Daily B ...
Political Paralysis Spreads to Australia?
August 25, 2010
We have spent time in the past several years analyzing the ongoing unraveling of the power elite's "democracy" meme. This of course is a widespread perception now and in America has even caused a new political movement – the Tea Party movement. Many people in ...
Society's Rules Don't Create Wealth
August 25, 2010
In olden days people were forced to labor for the king and his minions in return for being allowed to live within the realm. This kind of extortion finally got tossed over and people's basic right to their lives became acknowledged - in the political philosophy ...
Falsity of Creative Destruction
August 24, 2010
This is a very interesting article that appears in Newsweek by James Manyika, Susan Lund and Byron Auguste. Manyika is a director of the global management and consulting firm McKinsey & Co, (Newsweek tells us), and of the McKinsey Global Institute, where Lund i ...
Muslim Bogeymen
August 24, 2010
Both in terms of feedback to the Daily Bell and in the larger Western (American) society, we see an uptick of Islamic demonization. From our point of view, as we have expressed many times, this demonization of the "other" is a kind of power-elite dominant socia ...
Let the Housing Market Normalize!
August 24, 2010
Recently there have been some encouraging signs that Congress is finally willing to admit what should have been evident two years ago. Even after a $150 billion bailout, Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac are still bankrupt and should be abolished. Indeed Rep. Barney F ...
Stoning & The Times
August 24, 2010
In this era when major political figures denounce ideological – by which they of course have in mind principled – thinking, why should one be consistent, show integrity? Those are not the virtues of sophisticates. Those are pedestrian ideals. As our preside ...
The Artificiality of Corporations
August 23, 2010
There is fairly clear evidence that the rise of tcorporation, a basically Anglo-American concept has run into rougher waters in this era of the Internet – as the Wall Street Journal points out. But the Journal for all its skepticism takes the rise of Western ...
Obama's Royal Retinue
August 23, 2010
It is not a novel observation, but it probably bears repeating. The vacations that President Obama takes are like some sort of royal procession. It wasn't so obvious under George Bush because he had his own "ranch" to go to. But like Bill Clinton, Obama is a wa ...
Principles vs. Pragmatism viz. the Mosque
August 23, 2010
If it is true that men and women in human communities ought not to intrude on their fellow citizens' liberties, then that idea would come in full strength just when it is most tempting to butt in. So, given how strongly millions of Americans feel that those pla ...
Nelson Hultberg on Libertarian-Conservatism and His New Conservative American Political Party
August 22, 2010
The Daily Bell is pleased to present an exclusive interview with Nelson Hultberg. Mr. Hultberg is a freelance writer in Dallas, Texas and the Executive Director of Americans for a Free Republic. His articles have appeared in such publications as The Dallas Morn ...
Maybe US Wants Iran to Have the Bomb?
August 21, 2010
All 1,000 of us gathered around the Bell conference table and there wasn't any room to breathe. So we scattered and a few of us decided to write this article. The rest went hiking. It is actually not our hypothesis but that of a very paranoid individual's. Call ...
10 Credible Conspiracy Theories?
August 20, 2010
While popular, left-wing website AlterNet cannot be considered mainstream media per se, this article partakes of the modern Western (mostly US) tradition of debunking suspicions that people may have about their government. It is especially a US dominant social ...
Rise of the Neo-Authoritarian Intelligentsia
August 20, 2010
We were startled to find this article appearing in the leftist Salon.com because it deals evidently and obviously with the Daily Bell theme: that prominent writers can construct fear-based arguments that help support larger power-elite dominant social themes. I ...
