Is Islam a religion of peace or of violence? Can you or can you not read and critically examine Quran? How does Islam see people like me who are atheists and those who believe in religions other than Islam? Do Muslims hate liberties in the West? Or are they appreciative of Western liberties? Are there corporate interests in the West that want to isolate and particularly demean Islam for it discourages drinking and promiscuity? Can Islam co-exist with modern civilization? Case of UAE, Dubai, Malaysia, Turkey, etc., some very safe and prosperous jurisdictions. Most importantly, does Islam like to settle issues with peace and negotiations or through violence? One must ask oneself: Do we fear the unknown, where “idiosyncrasies” of others are exaggerated in our mind?

  • Ideal goods and services such as courtesy and trustworthiness and friendliness, to name a few, are not bound by physical scarcity and at the same time these ideal goods and services are the most desired by humans because they are uniquely human according to natural law. It is safe to assume that movement towards these goods and services will be a characteristic of the economy of an ever-advancing civilization.

  • Perhaps you will find this magnificent BBC documentary interesting. It tells the story of the ancient city of Caral, a little north of Lima on the coast of Peru, which is arguably the oldest city in and the beginning of civilization in the Americas. The Lost Pyramids Of Caral There are two points I would like to make about the story told therein of Caral which I think are relevant to libertarians. 1) The early civilization of Caral apparently arose purely out of commerce. This confirms the insights of the Austrian school of economics. And it may be an example of a commercially organized cooperative human society that antedates the rise of any state. 2) This contradicts the presumptions brought to the study by the archaeologists. For one example, at 7:20 one states the following. You can’t build … on the basis of consensus. You have to have leaders and followers. You have to have specialists. You have to have people who are in charge. People who can tell individual groups, alright, today you will be doing this. This group you are going to be doing something different. In other words, in his academic world, the possibility is inconceivable of that human cooperation could be organized by trade — the marketplace — rather than authority.
