Am I the only one who is really tired of all this Iran nuclear stuff year after year after year? Israel has at least 100 nukes and Iran knows this.

And by the way, neither the Ayatollah nor former Iranian President Ahmadinejad stated that Israel should be “wiped off the map,” or that there should be another Jewish genocide or holocaust. The propagandists have been making good use of the mistranslations of those top Iranians’ utterances for political and fear-mongering purposes. What those Iranian leaders actually were referring to was the Israeli government, the “regime occupying Jerusalem,” to be specific.

And while Iran never threatened to nuke Israel, Israel has sure threatened to nuke Iran, as have certain prominent Americans. But the propagandized American public will unquestionably believe what their government and its fear-mongering sycophants tell them, as repeated by the stenographers and useful idiots in the mainstream media.

I can’t believe just how ignorant and propagandized so many people are in the 21st Century. It’s like pre-Enlightenment times, or so it seems.

Tell someone on the left that crony capitalism is not the same as the free market and they’ll often respond that capitalism as it really exists is crony capitalism. They will say that there has never been an instance of capitalism in which government-sponsored or government-abetted cronyism didn’t play a substantial role — either through war, taxation, or slavery — in a market economy. As a result, the failings of crony capitalism — corruption, privilege, oppression, business cycles — are simply the failings of capitalism itself.

One correct response is to show that the less intervention there has been, the less corrupt, privileged, oppressive, and unstable the socioeconomic order also has been. Many would simply reiterate that, historically, laissez-faire capitalism has never existed, nor could it exist, without interventionism. They simply will not or cannot distinguish the free market from state capitalism, corporate capitalism, or other forms of the mixed economy.

Which is perhaps why some on the left have adopted the term “neoliberalism,” a perfectly good word that has come to represent an imbroglio of vaguely market-cum-corporativist views. They can’t imagine how markets could work without some form of state intervention holding it all together. And that’s probably because they reject what economist Peter Boettke calls “mainline economics,” or economics in the tradition of Adam Smith, Frédéric Bastiat, and Carl Menger, among others.
