How To Counter Disinformation

How do you counter disinformation? You directly confront those bureaucrats who push censorship and government lies. Take, for example, Cass Sunstein, a legal scholar who has long pushed for a “reformulation” of the First Amendment. In other words, he wants to gut America’s freedoms so lying bureaucrats like him can steamroll us with their malarkey.

Here, We Are change confronts this crackpot. Those, like him, who want to transform America into a dystopic 1984 nightmare should be confronted at every turn, and beaten back. This is not an academician, but a shill and a Joseph Goebbels wannabe!

Do Food Regulations Work?

Why do we consume so much high fructose corn syrup? Why does America suffer from an obesity epidemic? And why are fruits and vegetables so expensive? Professor Dan D’Amico of Loyola University argues that special interests and government policy are at least partly to blame. According to Professor D’Amico, rent seeking and regulations — such as “organic” certification — results in lower costs for less healthy foods and higher costs for nutritional foods.

Feds Vs. the Chinatown Bus

The long-distance busing industry was originally dominated by small scrappy companies competing fiercely to win over customers, only to become a government-protected cartel with declining ridership and all the competitive spirit of Ma Bell. A half-century later, busing returned to its glorious origins, but today it’s in danger becoming a ward of the state once more.

Subsidize Silly Walks

Prof. Art Carden has developed some silly walks and is seeking payment for his work. Since he cannot find anyone to pay him voluntarily, perhaps he should apply for a government subsidy for producing silly walks. But while silly walks may benefit society, the fact that people will not pay for their development voluntarily indicates that people do not value silly walks as much as other things people would pay Prof. Carden to do. Are some subsidies valid, though? What about for food? Or for education? How about subsidies for clean energy? Is government assistance definitely better for society?
