The 5 Commandments of Libertarianism

To understand this post make sure to read this article about Elizabeth Warrens 11 Progressive Commandments.

While many libertarians like to keep it simple with basically one rule, the NAP (Non-Aggression Principle). I figured I'd take my stab at a good set of Libertarian commandments

 

# 1 - Individuals have the right to make choices regarding their property
(body, fruit of labor, justly acquired property)

# 2 - Individuals don't have the right to make choices regarding the property of others

# 3 - Individuals have the right to enter voluntary contracts of their liking with each other and have those contracts judged by a body of their mutual choosing

# 4 - Violence is only legitmatley used as a response to violence, The Initiation of Violence is NEVER just

# 5 - Markets are an efficient and more equitable way to distribute wealth than the alternative, and markets are an efficient conduit of knowledge. Individuals have a right to voluntarily form markets where they are demanded

Videos on Economic Indicators

Video Series on Economic Indicators
By Alex Merced

I've been doing videos on economic theory for years at LearnEconomicsNow.com but am now doing a project more geared towards application of economic knowledge.

Last weekend I picked up the book "the secrets of economic indicators", and decided to do a series of videos about all these indicators.

In these videos I discuss these indicators impact on the market, what they tell you about the economy, and how they are put together.

I have created a playlist just for this series which you can find at indicators.learneconomicsnow.com.

If you enjoy my work and would like to show a token of support please make a pledge at patreon.com/alexmerced of as little as $1/mo or more.

Lists of Paid and Free DAWS for Music Production

Whether your mastering your friends bands album or wanting to produce the next big Dubstep track, you will need a DAW (direct audio workstation) that lets you work with multiple tracks, edit audio, and use plug-in effects and instruments. Here are some links to help you find a DAW that suits you best.

My advice if one sounds up your alley look up youtube tutorials to see if the workflow makes sense to you, and many of them have free trials to let you get acquainted.
