  • Report from the International SFL Conference

    I was at the International Students For Liberty Conference this weekend.  It was a good event which brought together many youth advocates for freedom. The introductory video, made by Mark Meranta of SFL, showcased the efforts of many libertarian student groups across the country — including a clip of a George Washington University student schooling …

  • Michael Moore: Hypocrite

    Just another reason why Michael Moore is a hypocrite:

  • Michael Moore Calls for Connecticut Boycott

    Constroversial  (and socialist) filmaker Micheal Moore announced that he is determined to boycott the state of Connecticut due to Senator Joe Lieberman’s position on the healthcare bill.  Even though Majority Leader Harry Reid made some changes within the bill to attract more “centrist” votes, Senator Lieberman still opposes it. Moore is very upset at the …

  • Something Surprisingly Worthwhile from Michael Moore

    In an open letter to the president, Moore writes: Dear President Obama, Do you really want to be the new “war president”? If you go to West Point tomorrow night (Tuesday, 8pm) and announce that you are increasing, rather than withdrawing, the troops in Afghanistan, you are the new war president. Pure and simple. And …

Now Americans who have no understanding of a true free- market economy are lead to think that today’s economic system is capitalism. When in fact …

  • Russia Today covers ‘Capitalism’ premiere

    Earlier this week several members of YAL attended the D.C. premiere of Capitalism: A Love Story.  Our Editorial Director even managed an interview at the premiere after-party.  Take a look: In case you missed it, Daniel McCarthy offered a little insight to how he was able to take advantage of the after-party buffet.

  • Capitalism: A Mistitled Movie

    Capitalism is an evil, and you can’t regulate evil. – Michael Moore Under a capitalist system, financial institutions would not have been intimidated or encouraged into making risky loans and neither would they have been bailed out if they did so… it is capitalism, not socialism, that made us a great country, and it’s socialism …

  • “Government Intervention: A Love Story”

    John Thorlin at The New Madisonian rightly sums up Michael Moore’s new film: My understanding from the trailer is that the movie is primarily about the bank bailouts and seedy relationships between firms like Goldman Sachs and the government. What does that have to do with capitalism? The essence of capitalism is allowing firms to …
