On November 6, 2011, the Economic Collapse Blog published the article, 14 Reasons Why We Should Nationalize The Federal Reserve.

On March 21, 2012, they published the article, Ben Bernanke Tries To Convince America That The Federal Reserve Is Good And The Gold Standard Is Bad.

At the end of the article, the author, Michael Snyder writes:

When you take an honest look at the Federal Reserve, there is only one rational conclusion: Congress should shut it down, lock the doors and throw away the key.

On November 12, 2011, I wrote the article, Lew Rockwell says MSNBC is blocking their regular contributor, Pat Buchanan, from discussing his new book, but what about LewRockwell.com keeping certain articles by its regular contributors from its readers?

In it I challenged Lew Rockwell to hold himself to the same standard he expected of MSNBC regarding his selective publication of articles by the Economic Collapse Blog, in publishing lots of depressing articles about how poorly the U.S. government is currently functioning but none of the ones about improving government.

What happened in the past four months to make Michael Snyder throw his 14 reasons for nationalizing the Federal Reserve completely out the window?

See my forthcoming article for my guess.

On LRC’s blog on November 10, 2011, Lew Rockwell wrote:

MSNBC is blocking their own guy Pat from appearing to discuss his new book. I have my own differences with this beautifully written, fascinating work (and I despise MSNBC), but suppression is hardly appropriate with the man or the network.

But what about LewRockwell.com keeping certain articles by its regular contributors from its readers?

A Google search shows at least 72 articles by The Economic Collapse Blog re-published by LRC since August 2010.

On November 7, 2011, The Economic Collapse Blog published the article, 14 Reasons Why We Should Nationalize the Federal Reserve. This article was picked up by Infowars.com, but not by LRC — for the obvious reason that it doesn’t fit with their narrative that the government can’t do anything right.

This one article isn’t the exception, but the rule. I have seen several such articles by TCDB that aren’t picked up by LRC, with it being rather obvious when a TCDB article with a “government is inherently bad” spin potential is published shortly before or after a TCDB article that doesn’t fit with LRC’s anti-state narrative. Another such example is the article, Free Trade or Fair Trade? 20 Reasons why All Americans Should be Against the Insane Trade Policies of the Globalists, which predictably wasn’t picked up by LRC.

As Lew Rockwell added:

UPDATE from Robert Katz:

“If [a] book be false in its facts, disprove them; if false in its reasoning, refute it. But for God’s sake, let us freely hear both sides if we choose.” — Thomas Jefferson to N. G. Dufief, 1814

So I say to Lew Rockwell, if The Economic Collapse Blog’s overtly pro-state articles be false in their facts, disprove them; if false in their reasoning, refute them, but let us freely hear both sides if we choose.
