Exposing Faux CapitalismOn the June 23, 2013 episode of Exposing Faux Capitalism with Jason Erb on Truth Frequency Radio, I covered the following articles and video:

Dentist’s decision to fire ‘too attractive’ assistant upheld by court

Here is my commentary on my Facebook group post:

Another case of a false frame by the mass media to pit one group against another — in this case women vs. men. The court ruled correctly, but for the wrong reason. The dentist acted legally in dismissing his “attractive” assistant not because there was no gender discrimination, but because an employer has the right to dismiss employees according to the terms of the employment contracts.

There is no right to privacy by Dr. Walter Block

My Facebook commentary:

Interesting perspective by contrarian Dr. Walter Block, whom I have interviewed on my show. He asserts that there is no right to privacy, and that privacy is only a benefit. This is provocative to some, just as the claim that health care isn’t a right, which I agree with, since it’s a market good, but is Dr. Block right about privacy?

Coast To Coast AM – July 13 2013 – The Federal Reserve – C2CAM Radio DisclosureRadio

My Facebook commentary:

Millions of weekly listeners doesn’t mean you’ll hear informed guests. Take last night’s C2C AM guest, Brad Thor, who falsely claimed that the Federal Reserve is no more federal than Federal Express (in ownership, that’s true, but not overall), and he laughably claimed that Canada is a socialist country vis-a-vis the U.S. (at 1h4m), despite the conservative Heritage Foundation ranking Canada as more economically free than the U.S. for the fourth year in a row in 2013.

Private property rightsFrom Lew Rockwell’s blog, he has a link to this November 22, 2012 article by the Mail Online: “Won’t sell up? Enjoy living in the middle of a motorway! Road is built around a house after elderly Chinese couple refuse to move.

Despite China’s Constitution only requiring compensation for the taking of private property, as opposed to “just compensation,” as the U.S. Constitution requires — or no mention whatsoever of any compensation for the taking of private property, as is the case with the Canadian Constitution — laws have since been passed in China prohibiting the taking of private property with force, without just cause, such as participation in criminal activities.

Previously, I wrote the article, Canadians recognize the importance of private property rights, about online readers of Canada’s largest newspaper, the Toronto Star, recognizing the importance of private property rights. Despite the Canadian Constitution providing no explicit protection for the taking of private property, as one commenter noted, the practice is often more relevant, as noted by this Chinese example, as well.

As for Lew Rockwell’s claim of “Another Way that China is Freer Than the US,” China is a very economically oppressive country, as illustrated by only being the 138th most economically free country out of 179 according to the conservative Heritage Foundation’s 2012 Index of Economic Freedom.

One way that China isn’t as economically free as the U.S. is the requirement to get permission from the central government in order to secure a job in a new city, as I witnessed personally with a company I was working for when they were going through the bureaucratic red tape to hire someone in their Chinese office.

Just as it isn’t the homeowner’s right to have water and electricity, it also isn’t the government’s or developer’s right to take away his private property, and the picture of this man’s home is one of the best sights of freedom I’ve seen this year.

AlleyCity of Windsor, Ontario councilors have discovered that private property = better care.

From the October 8, 2012 Toronto Star article, Solution to fixing Windsor’s decaying alleys? Sell them to homeowners:

“The alleys are in bad shape and they’re just going to get worse because we don’t have the money to fix them,” Payne said.

Payne thought that it would be better for the city to just divest itself of the alleyways and asked for a report on the feasibility of selling them for a nominal fee to homeowners whose property is next to them.

The city has 150 kilometres of alleys — most of them in a state of disrepair, said Payne. The pavement is cracked. There are potholes, garbage and vermin in many of them, he said.

Reaction to the idea so far has been positive, Payne said. “I’ve had calls from homeowners who’ve said they’d like to buy the alleys behind their house.””
