Seeing Is Not Believing

How do steel and concrete turn into dust before our very eyes? Why don’t our brains acknowledge what we are seeing? Because of this: “This is not possible, by definition.” Seeing is not believing. Wild theories abound. None gets traction. Here is a wild theory. It is supported by impossible videos. The videos are real, […]

The Case for Optimism

Recently, I wrote an article on lost causes on the Left. I began it with this quotation from a civil rights activist in the mid-1960’s: Mel Leventhal.

Let Me Tell You About the 1950s

The great thing about being a historian is that you can write about almost anything and get away with it. Everything that happened in the past that left chronological records is fair game.

Statist Monetary Cranks

I have been writing refutations of monetary cranks for over half a century. I wrote my first essay on a monetary crank, Gertrude Coogan, in 1965. Her book was Money Creators. It came out in the 1930’s in the Great Depression. That was the golden era of anti-gold standard fiat monetary cranks. I wrote the essay […]
