Militia AAR

I dislike the term, both from a Nineties-era Clintonista disinformation campaign perspective and my concern that if one truly is an unorganized militia member, then you are in fact and by law subject to the command of the Federal government.

I never thought about it that way. (Must be a holdover from my Statist days.) But, it does sound reasonable seeing as how the word is used in the 2A.

Opening comments: A reader asked for “my take” on the militia, in concept and in practice.

I dislike the term, both from a Nineties-era Clintonista disinformation campaign perspective and my concern that if one truly is an unorganized militia member, then you are in fact and by law subject to the command of the Federal government.

So, using the term generically, I think a “militia” consisting of local volunteers self-equipping and training to be responsive to local needs is not only supported by precedent in the political history of white North America, but very likely supported by the history of aboriginal North America as well. It is, after all, inherent in the social nature of man to band together, and that band almost always did have and will have for the foreseeable future a self-defense aspect, even if not fully expressed due to conditions.

I share with any sane observer the misgivings about competence and mindset. Of course, I have those same misgivings about police, with a heckuva lot more factual basis (as WRSA readers know ad nauseum). But very much unlike the police in general, the militia folks are almost always motivated by a sincere desire to help their communities not only without compensation, but much more likely at significant personal expense. Call it a “militia”, a “community watch”, a “neighborhood defense team”, or anything else that seems appropriate – it is your community, those folks are your neighbors, and only by working together will you and your family have the best chance against whatever threats appear incident to the fall of the American Empire.

Hey Peter,

Thought you might get a kick out of this. Some more of that “Worthless Militia” training that folks bitch about. We had 9 units from 3 states. Practiced movement to contact, force on force (w/ blanks of course) Four squads of six men air-lifted to an LZ within striking distance of our mock target (an encampment staffed by OPFOR). Communications and coordination were much better than expected. See attached and feel free to use any or all of it. Including my email []. While folks dissect frogs on the intardwebs, we are doing it. Train or die.

Take Care Brother,

Environmental and Natural Resource Economics: The Austrian View

BookCoverImageMurray N. Rothbard was the father of what some call Radical Libertarianism or Anarcho-Capitalism which Hans-Hermann Hoppe described as “Rothbard’s unique contribution to the rediscovery of property and property rights as the common foundation of both economics and political philosophy, and the systematic reconstruction and conceptual integration of modern, marginalist economics and natural-law political philosophy into a unified moral science: libertarianism.”

This book applies the principles of this “unified moral science” to environmental and natural resource management issues.

The book started out life as an assigned reading list for a university level course entitled Environmental and Natural Resource Economics: The Austrian View.

As I began to prepare to teach the course, I quickly saw that there was a plethora of textbooks suitable for universal level courses dealing with environmental and natural resource economics. The only problem was that they were all based in mainstream neo-classical (or Keynesian) theory. I could find no single collection of material comprising a comprehensive treatment of environmental and natural resource economics based on Austrian Economic Theory.

However, I was able to find a large number of essays, monographs, papers delivered at professional meetings and published from a multitude of sources. This book is the result. It is composed of a collection of research reports and essays by reputable scientists, economists, and legal experts as well as private property and free market activists.

The book is organized into seven parts: I. Environmentalism: The New State Religion; II. The New State Religion Debunked; III. Introduction to Environmental and Natural Resource Economics; IV. Interventionism: Law and Regulation; V. Pollution and Recycling; VI. Property Rights: Planning, Zoning and Eminent Domain; and VII. Free Market Conservation. It also includes an elaborate Bibliography, References and Recommended Reading section including an extensive Annotated Bibliography of related and works on the subject.

The intellectual level of the individual works ranges from quite scholarly to informed editorial opinion.

About Land & Livestock Interntional, Inc.

Land and Livestock International, Inc. is a leading agribusiness management firm providing a complete line of services to the range livestock industry. We believe that private property is the foundation of America. Private property and free markets go hand in hand—without property there is no freedom. We also believe that free markets, not government intervention, hold the key to natural resource conservation and environmental preservation. No government bureaucrat can (or will) understand and treat the land with as much respect as its owner. The bureaucrat simply does not have the same motives as does the owner of a capital interest in the property. Our specialty is the working livestock ranch simply because there are so many very good reasons for owning such a property. We provide educational, management and consulting services with a focus on ecologically and financially sustainable land management that will enhance natural processes (water and mineral cycles, energy flow and community dynamics) while enhancing profits and steadily building wealth.
