We are developing the social individualist meta-context for the future. From the very serious to the extremely frivolous... lets see what is on the mind of the Samizdata people.

Samizdata, derived from Samizdat /n. - a system of clandestine publication of banned literature in the USSR [Russ.,= self-publishing house]

Further evidence that James Delingpole is now talking seriously about the money racket as well as the climate racket

As noted here, first there was this. Now there is this.

Delingpole quotes Aussie blogger Jo Nova at length, and also Detlev Schlichter, thereby also giving another plug to the Cobden Centre, and mentions that meeting at the House of Commons where Schlichter spoke.

The Jo Nova quote ends thus:

If real people had to earn real money, investment bankers would need to make real decisions, scientists would have to find real evidence, and politicians would have to come up with real reasons.

To which Delingpole adds:

Exactly, Jo. Welcome to the Austrian School – the only economic education worth having right now.

Is the parallel between climate “science” and economic “science”, or between climate skepticism and the Austrian school, that exact? Details. I said in my posting earlier that if Delingpole did decide to take all this paper money stuff seriously, it might really be something. He clearly has and it truly might.

    The word is spreading. That is good news.

    Unfortunately Delingpole’s comments section has degenerated into a forum for duelling monomaniacs playing their usual boring ping-pong.

  • Sam Duncan

    David, I installed the NoScript Firefox extension and disabled the Telegraph’s comments. Normally it annoys me these days if a column or blog doesn’t have comments, but I make an exception in Dellers’ case. They’re painful.

  • Paul Marks

    I do not know enough about science to know whether theory that human emissons of C02 are a serious threat is true or not. Although I do know that the polices proposed to deal with this claimed threat make no sense – even in their own terms.

    However, monetary theory is something I have been looking at and thinking about for most of my life – and I can say that what is taught in the schools an universities and practiced by governments is utter nonsense.

    I certain welcome James Delingpole fighting against it.

    By the way the Telegraph comments being so silly is indeed an advantage – one need not answer them.

  • Johnathan Pearce

    I hate Telegraph commenters. Often the bigotry
    is stunning and depressing.

  • David Gillies

    Johnathan Pearce: there’s a frighteningly large number of rabid anti-Semites hang out there. Some Torygraph bloggers are worth commenting on. The always-intriguing Brendan O’Neill is one. Most of the rest are either vapid idiots like Mary Riddell and Geoffrey Lean, or wishy-washy Big Society nongs like Ed West (apparently a Jihadist shooting a little girl point blank in the head was due to ‘alienation’.)

    Yes, it often is, but I operate on the “Know thine enemy” principle Johnathan. I read all the articles and a lot of the comments in all Journals be it the Telegraph or the Guardian etc.

  • Alisa

    The antacid industry must love you, RAB.

    Sounds like someone’s been reading opinions he doesn’t agree with.

    Well as JP is not a racist bigot, yes I suspect you are correct.

    It’s always worth remembering when pointing the finger that three fingers point back at the pointer.

  • And why is that worth remembering? Are you quoting from fortune cookies?

  • The Wobbly Guy

    CAGW is collapsing.

    Can keynesian/fiat money ideology be far behind? And after that, perhaps it’ll be human neurological uniformity, and then AIDS-HIV theory.

    One by one, my beliefs are being vindicated. Hahaha!
