    Why does libertarianism feel so 20th century?

    Thread Starter: helmuth_hubener

    Why does libertarianism feel so 20th century? Imagine you are defending a castle. When the north wall gets assaulted, you defend the north wall. When the east wall gets assaulted, you defend the east wall. It is not that you changed your opinion or priorities. It is not your choice to make.

    Trump Ends Covert Obama-era CIA Program Which Sent Arms To Jihadists

    Thread Starter: Swordsmyth

    In what may be one of the most significant foreign policy decisions of his first year in office, Trump is shutting down the CIA's covert program to arm rebels fighting the Syrian government. This would constitute a monumental shift in terms of US priorities in Syria which throughout most of the 6-year long war have focused on removing Bashar al-Assad. The Washington Post reports: Officials...

    That's it? 1% is normalized? I didn't see that coming. I assumed the Fed would keep raising rates until the markets started to tank and then reverse course. Maybe they're just going to substitute teensy quantitative tightening for teensy rate hikes until the market tanks.
