Conservatives on Heels: What Do They Hope to Conserve? with Richard Salsman

March 21, 2024
"Unlike liberals, Democrats, libertarians, Republicans, and Objectivists, conservatives have no distinct name brand to suggest what they actually stand for and would fight for, other than what rivals have instituted in the past. Conservatives can’t gain ground morally or politically because they’re always on their heels, reacting, helping their foes consolidate their gains. Conservatives should cease being so ideologically promiscuous, pick a lane (actual brand name), and adopt the absolutist, rock-ribbed principles which promote and sustain reason, liberty, and capitalism."

Is the ‘Naturalistic Fallacy’ a Fallacy? The Case of Economics with Hicks & Salsman

February 28, 2024
“For centuries, the ‘is-ought’ (or ‘fact-value’) dichotomy has been a perennial issue in philosophy (see Hume) and remains so today. Those who reject it and contend that morality can (and should!) be objective and fact-based are accused of committing ‘the naturalistic fallacy.’ In economics, the is-ought dichotomy takes the form of a supposed conflict between ‘positive’ and ‘normative’ economics. Even pro-capitalist Austrian economists say economics isn’t science unless it is ‘value-free.’ Is this valid? Is the argument about the ‘naturalistic fallacy’ itself fallacious? If the good isn’t to be grounded in nature (including human nature), then what or whence? Only the supernatural?”

Capitalism, For & Against: A University Seminar

February 27, 2024

My introduction reads: ‘Capitalism is a formidable and durable social system worthy of scientific, objective study. Only three centuries old, it has both proponents and opponents, each wielding strong and weak arguments. In this seminar, we investigate, analyze, and debate the nature of capitalism and assess the validity (or not) of various pro-con claims.’”
