Should you just shoot me, or what?
Is your farm up stream or next to or both? What

I guess it would be better if I just used eminent domain to plow over your land to build a McQuickymeggamart.

From 1913 to 1934 Mises was an unpaid professor at the University of Vienna while working as an economist for the Vienna Chamber of Commerce, in which capacity he served as the principal economic adviser to the Austrian government. To avoid the Nazi influence in his Austrian homeland, in 1934 Mises left for Geneva, where he was a professor at the Graduate Institute of International Studies until he emigrated to New York City in 1940. He was a visiting professor at New York University from 1945 until he retired in 1969.

Mises’s ideas—on economic reasoning and on economic policy—were out of fashion during the Keynesian revolution that took over American economic thinking from the mid-1930s to the 1960s. Mises’s upset at the Keynesian revolution and at Hitler’s earlier destruction of his homeland made Mises bitter from the late 1940s on. The contrast between his early view of himself as a mainstream member of his profession and his later view of himself as an outcast shows up starkly in The Theory of Money and Credit. The first section, written in 1912, is calmly argued; the last section, added in the 1940s, is strident.

Mises had a strong influence on young people. The resurgent Austrian school in the United States owes itself in no small part to Mises’s persistence.


But I'm sure you left this out intentionally



Another of Mises’s notable contributions is his claim that socialism must fail economically. In a 1920 article, Mises argued that a socialist government could not make the economic calculations required to organize a complex economy efficiently. Although socialist economists Oskar Lange and Abba Lerner disagreed with him, modern economists agree that Mises’s argument, combined with Hayek’s elaboration of it, is correct (see socialism).


Or maybe it just wasn't on alternet or KOS


Ludwig von Mises: The Concise Encyclopedia of Economics | Library of Economics and Liberty


But hey Keynes has been working out fantastic!!
You left out the fact he's a rich guy from overseas who wants to push more privilege for the rich....he's a Libertarian for crying out loud.

That's a sidestep.

Hell yes it was to a silly question.

Liberties go as far as they don't harm someone else. It's an age old believe that seems to have been forgotten

And what, again I ask, will prevent the lazy and greedy and sociopaths from just doing those things in your ideal system?

Here I am not talking about anarchism. More libertarianism. Not collectivism or socialism.

And the lazy will starve. The greedy will get shunned and hopefully there will be more psychopaths.

The lazy won't starve if they just steal your stuff, the greedy don't care if they are shunned. And you wish psychopaths on yourself? Sort of counterproductive.
