My intrepid Mercatus Center colleague Veronique de Rugy and co-author Jack Salmon rightly decry Uncle Sam’s fiscal imprudence [2].

Jeffrey Tucker exposes the evil ideology of the monster who unleashed mass murder in New Zealand [3].

My GMU Econ colleague Alex Tabarrok has some data on how much time criminal convicts really spend in prison [4].

Wall Street Journal columnist Dan Henninger wisely advises us to laugh at – and to fear – the socialism that is now all the rage among so many Americans [5]. A slice:

This means the next Democratic administration, and that would include a Biden administration, will sit to the left of the Obama presidency, which itself was a distinct ideological break from all the party’s left-of-center presidencies since World War II.

The Obama administration was managed capitalism. Its successor will push past that to administered capitalism, a private-sector co-controlled by the party’s representatives.

The great Thomas Sowell recently spoke out against socialism [6].

Several weeks ago Andrew McCarthy reviewed Peter Wallison’s new book, Judicial Fortitude: The Last Chance to Rein In the Administrative State [7]. A slice:

This arrangement is contra-constitutional in fundamental ways. While, at least in theory, what we now call the administrative state promotes efficiency and the public good, the Constitution was actually designed to promote liberty – government would be limited in what it could do to citizens rather than empowered to direct them, with society flourishing through the initiative and ingenuity of free individuals.
