IBDaily Editorial: Obama's False Equivalency

1776 wasn’t anything like Castro’s 1959 Putsch. In one of his last acts in Havana, President Obama threw out a false equivalency between the American Revolution and Cuba’s 1959 communist takeover. What are we to make of a U.S. president who embraces such hoary Marxist equivalencies? In his Tuesday address to the Cuban people,   ... MORE

Individualism & Capitalism vs. Marxian Gender & Race Conflict: Trigger Words And College Safe Spaces

by Richard Ebeling.   The media has been full of stories recently about the new sensitivity on college and university campuses concerning the avoidance in courses or assignments of the use of “trigger words” or phrases that may have a “hurtful” affect on students when thoughtlessly used in the teaching environment. Student and other groups    ...

Capitalism And Morality: Walter Williams Vs. Pope Francis

by Daniel J. Mitchell.  The Pope is divinely ignorant on economics. The biggest mistake of well-meaning leftists is that they place too much value on good intentions and don’t seem to care nearly as much about good results. Pope Francis is an example of this unfortunate tendency. His concern for the poor presumably is genuine, but he puts ideology ... MORE

Thomas Sowell: The Left Has Its Pope

The Pope is unwittingly calling for more poverty.  Pope Francis has created political controversy, both inside and outside the Catholic Church, by blaming capitalism for many of the problems of the poor. We can no doubt expect more of the same during his visit to the United States. Pope Francis is part of a larger trend of the rise of the political  ... MORE

Barry Farber: The Latest Marxism In America

Spotlighting Obama's 'The Good Life = less income' claim. Her father stuck his tongue out at her and aggressively allowed her big sister every advantage. He even threatened to strike her with his cane. He once forced her to display her “first bra” at the dinner table. And what was her major complaint about him at the end? He wanted her  ... MORE

Barry Farber: Obama Wants Capitalism To Fail

Wifely wisdom and the checking of premises.    One of the most exciting clich├ęs in the English language is “Thinking outside the box”! Who among us has not thought, “If only I could think outside the box, like Gates and Jobs and Zuckerberg! If only! Then rainbows wouldn’t be something I’m constantly chasing. They’d be more like house  ... MORE

Ralph R. Reiland: The Audacity Of Hope

Street level anti-capitalism.     It’s not what I signed up for, but I recently got a three hour Marxist lecture while taking a boat ride on the intracoastal waterways of Fort Lauderdale. “That waterfront mansion coming up on our left is Alamo car rental money,” said our guide on the cruise.“Think of that the next time you put down your money to    ...

Barry Farber: Obama's Mainstreaming Of Marxism

The commies like Barrack. So what? An email came though with the subject line, “Yikes! Look who just endorsed Obama for 4 more years!” I scrambled to get past the tease and into the revelation. I expected the villain would be a prominent Republican governor or mayor or some major conservative having one of those fits that swept Arianna Huffington  ... MORE

Barry Farber: Occupiers Are Not Heroes, Just Marxists

Mice striving to be rats.     How dare Time magazine link real freedom fighters of the Middle East with the sorry bunch of American "protesters" who shared Time's Person-of-the-Year honors? Whatever happened to the Time magazine that emblazoned its cover in 1956 with the genuinely heroic anti-Communist Hungarian freedom fighters? Protesters in Syria daily... MORE
