    Maybe I’ll be happy…

    One of the great unheralded punk songs. Heard it start and had to run out to the garage and do a combo on the heavy bag. Love that real punk shit. Riles me up.

    Way to drop history, Ben. Needs to be heard.

    An excellent show.

    As a kid in school learning about the Pearl Harbor attack, it puzzled me to hear that the attack was “unprovoked”. Being the fool I was, I stuck my hand in the air and asked, and (big surprise!) was immediately silenced.

    So.. Was Admiral Yamamoto bored, and attacked Pearl Harbor just to see if his shiny toys worked? As sarcastic as that is, it makes more sense than the attack being unprovoked!

    Early in school, I was suspicious of what I was being fed. Much of it didn’t stand up to any serious analysis. But, I mostly kept my head down and mouth shut just to get the fancy piece of paper at the end of it. Yay!

    Thank you, Ben, for your analysis and commentary of history.

    Regarding FDR, the chapter about him in Thaddeus Russell’s book “A Renegade History” is also interesting to read.

    The libertarian School Sucks Podcast made an episode about it:

    It’s fascinating how the Scandinavian welfare states which were founded around the same time as the New Deal, have exactly the same traits.

    The Social Democrats was reformed from “class parties” to nationalist “folk parties”. Historian Anders Edwardsson (in his book “En annorlunda historia”) writes that with the founding of the Scandinavian Welfare states:

    “an increasingly corporatist social model was embraced, where the state (just like in the Middle Ages) not primarily relate to the citizens as individuals but as members of various organizations, whose participation in various state and municipal bodies increasingly turned them into semi-official, officious bodies. This development would in Sweden admittedly take a variety of forms. The overall idea and ambition, however, was – just as in Fascist Italy – that the union of the state, society, organizations and industry would create a stronger and more harmonious society. ”

    You can find the freely downloadable pdf and epub versions of “A Century of War: Lincoln, Wilson and Roosevelt” at the Mises Institute.

    Thanks for the excellent show, guys.
