“If students here could take anything away from this right now — you have no idea how much us old guys up here suffered to make your lives better,” Peter M. Robinson said, as the audience broke into laughter. Robinson’s lighthearted sentiment echoed the more serious issues of standards of living and sustained financial prosperity addressed in the Hoover Institution’s panel discussion on Thursday, the second in a three-part centennial speaker series, A Century of Ideas for a Free Society.

John Yoo: It’s Now Impeachment Or Bust. As It Should Be.

by John Yoovia The Washington Post
Friday, April 19, 2019

It’s impeachment or bust. That’s the message sent by special counsel Robert S. Mueller III to critics of President Trump. In his release of the Mueller report Thursday, Attorney General William P. Barr only underscored this lesson by finding that the evidence does not support charging the president with obstruction of justice.

Aspen’s Newest Social-Emotional Learning Offering Gives Cause for Pause

Reparations And The Weaponization Of Slavery

by Bruce Thorntonvia Front Page Magazine
Thursday, April 18, 2019
The Democrats who have announced their candidacy for the presidential primary have all declared their support for paying reparations to the descendants of slaves, after they kissed the ring of notorious race-baiter, tax cheat, and liar Al Sharpton. None has a clue exactly how such a policy would be implemented, and it’s clear their support is nothing more than virtue-signaling and pandering to the racialist left. Nor is it likely such a policy will come to pass.

Don’t Acquire A Company Until You Evaluate Its Data Security

by Chirantan Chatterjee, D. Daniel Sokolvia Harvard Business Review
Tuesday, April 16, 2019

When Marriott International acquired Starwood in 2016 for $13.6 billion, neither company was awareof a cyber-attack on Starwood’s reservation system that dated back to 2014. The breach, which exposed the sensitive personal data of nearly 500 million Starwood customers, is a perfect example of what we call a “data lemon” — a concept drawn from economist George Akerlof’s work on information asymmetries and the “lemons” problem.

Democratic Self-Government Or Mass Migration?

quoting Victor Davis Hansonvia American Greatness
Thursday, April 18, 2019

If migration is the biggest challenge of our time, the key question is who will make the decisions regarding this challenge? There are three possibilities: supranational institutions (let’s call this Davos); the migrants themselves arriving without the consent of the people in the nations that are affected; or the demos, the citizens of democratic nation-states.

Mueller May Be Done, But Barr Is Just Getting Started, Says Ed Rogers

Thursday, April 18, 2019

Even though Attorney General William Barr released a more complete version of special counsel Robert Mueller’s report yesterday, no one should expect that will be the end of the debate. Democrats were forthright in their eagerness to get the full Mueller report. Those who propped up the collusion narrative are determined to do anything and everything to try to bend the report to their liking and count on their allies in the media to keep the collusion story alive.

The Ethics Of Charles Koch

by David R. Hendersonvia EconLog
Tuesday, August 15, 2017

Charles [Koch] is a true believer, whose free-market beliefs are unquestionably self-interested--but also undeniably sincere. His value system is apparent in all aspects of his company, including Koch's lobbying operation. Until the early 1990s, the company didn't have a Washington presence; this, one former Koch lobbyist said, reflected Charles's inherent distrust of politicians and his anti-government bent.

Steadfast Defender Of Classical Liberalism

by Peter Berkowitzvia Real Clear Politics
Monday, August 14, 2017

With the Trump administration careening from controversy to controversy, the denizens of Capitol Hill confirming the people’s low opinion of Congress, and much of elite media validating suspicions that they view themselves not primarily as reliable chroniclers of events but as a valiant political vanguard, it is easy to overlook the ideological pincer movement besieging classical liberalism from left and right.

My memory is a little hazy, but I’m pretty sure the first time I heard the term “Nazi” was when I was nine or ten and watching the “Blues Brothers” on TV. All I remember is that the neo-Nazis were having a parade, and getting in the Blues Brothers’ way, and the whole thing was treated as farce. They were clearly a bunch of losers and idiots, not even worthy of fear. They were a punchline, the butt of a joke.
