|Rick, the difficulty is that 99% of people haven't read or don't understand the arguments made by Rand, or Hazlitt or Mises. So rehashes are necessary. Most people haven't received the message even once and those who have can always use it in a more elaborated form. It would be wonderful if everyone in the world would read Economics in One Lesson and Atlas Shrugged but unfortunately this hasn't happened and isn't likely to happen any time soon. You made the point very well on another recent thread :|
"Post capitalism to the cathedral door of our times- be on TV, on radio and in print. Respond to the statists, don't let them steal the airwaves when we have superior arguments that, in willing hands, can and will disburse anti-freedom doctrines like so many insubstantial vapours. Form clubs and societies, political parties that act. Get involved in a magazine, in blogs. Let's make a podcast. Live your life preaching Objectivism always and, when necesasary, use words."
If you find a new wrinkle by all means employ it but don't hesitate to utilize the intellectual ammo provided geniuses (or to recommend their books). This thread is about a very important issue that most people have not pondered (even in Objectivist circles). The expansion of the money supply by our various central banks is one of the greatest crimes that modern states are guilty of. Far from being a useless rehash, this is one of the most important topics I can think of. I want you to know that I am a fan of you -- I think you are extremely smart and damn funny but why is it that you scoff at any thread that touches upon topics like this?
