Beijing Boycott
Should the 2008 Beijing Olympics be boycotted? Although there have been half a dozen boycotts of the Olympic Games after WW II, they achieved nothing. If someone can explain to me why a boycott of the upcoming China Olympics should be in any way successful, I might consider supporting it. The chances of an Olympic boycott having any meaningful influence on human rights issues in China are about equal to the Cuban boycott by the Americans (unless the CIA got Castro with the Old-Age-Ray). If some athletes a la "Tommie Smith & John Carlos" could be found, then we might get somewhere. Having...
Minimum Wage and Libertarianism
Although as a social libertarian I would of course agree that minimum wages have no place in a laissez faire economic system, it is important to remember that such a repeal is not a stand-alone decision. If one wants to implement a truly free-market economy a la Murray Rothbard (Man, Economy and State) then there is a lot to be done and picking and choosing just a few items that seem opportune will not be helpful and might very well tip the scales even farther in the wrong direction. Here in Germany, one of the last West-European nations that does not have a minimum wage, the battle is on...
Although , personally, I have major misgivings on abortion and would go to great lengths to find alternative solutions to any problem indicating abortion as the recommended solution, since I would very much try to err in favor of life. Having said that, I have few (read: none) empiric facts to back this up and would therefore place this decision squarely in a gray area, defined by a number of, mostly contradictory, positions: The rights of a(n unborn) child: : This is the grayest of gray areas. We have no way of determining where life begins, and are even unsure if such a point exists,...
An Independent Kosovo
Although one can certainly sympathize deeply with the population of Kosovo, both for what they have endured in the past as with their wish for independence, it does not necessarily follow that we must support the secession from Serbia, at least not as a unilateral decision presenting the world with a fait accompli. Territorial integrity, as defined and upheld by the UN is more than a catch phrase, it has been a concept which has been defined and implemented successfully and any attempt to undermine or qualify this term, could very well have far reaching consequences. The recognition of this...
