By Moving from a Vertical Industry (Hospital Medical Complex) to a Horizontal Industry (Physicians-Hospital-Insurance on the same level) with Freedom from Gov’t Interference
IN THIS SECTION WE FEATURE FREEDOM LOVING ENTERPRISES, AND ORGANIZATIONS FOR YOUR INTEREST AND SUPPORT IN OUR EFFORTS TO KEEP GOVERNMENTAL INTRUSIONS MINIMAL AND TO PREVENT OUR RETURN TO THE SOCIALISM OF EUROPE WE ESCAPED THREE CENTURIES AGO.
The Heritage Foundation, Kay C. James, President. www.Heritage.org, 214 Massachusetts Ave, NE, DC 20002
CATO. The Cato Institute (www.cato.org) was founded in 1977, by Edward H. Crane, with Charles Koch of Koch Industries. It is a nonprofit public policy research foundation headquartered in Washington, D.C. The Institute is named for Cato’s Letters, a series of pamphlets that helped lay the philosophical foundation for the American Revolution.
The Foundation for Economic Education, www.fee.org, has been publishing The Freeman – Ideas On Liberty, Freedom’s Magazine since 1946, when it was founded by Leonard R Read. Having bound copies of this running treatise on free-market economics for over 60 years, the current president Lawrence W. Reed was able to complete the missing volumes in the FEE home library from my collection.
THE INDEPENDENT INSTITUTE, https//www.independent.org/ founded by David J. Theroux, CEO & President is a non-profit, non-partisan, public-policy research and educational organization in Oakland, that shapes ideas into profound and lasting impact through publications, conferences, and effective multi-media programs. Our mission is to boldly advance peaceful, prosperous, and free societies grounded in a commitment to human worth and dignity.
The National Association of Scholars www.nas.org held their last meeting at the Independent Institute Fixing Science: Practical Solutions for the Irreproducibility Crisis on February 7 & 8, 2020. Something has gone terribly wrong in today’s scientific community. Many headline scientific findings in recent years have turned out to be false and impossible to reproduce.
The Ludwig von Mises Institute, www.Mises.org, Lew Rockwell, President, is a rich source of free-market materials, probably the best daily course in economics we’ve seen. If you read these essays on a daily basis, it would probably be equivalent to taking Economics 11 and 51 in college.
Hillsdale College: www.hillsdale.edu, the premier small liberal arts college in southern Michigan with about 1,200 students, was founded in 1844 with the mission of “educating for liberty.” It is proud of its principled refusal to accept any federal funds, even in the form of student grants and loans, and of its historic policy of non-discrimination and equal opportunity. The price of freedom is never cheap.
The St. Croix Review, stcroixreview.com. a bimonthly journal of ideas recognizes that the world is very dangerous. Conservatives are staunch defenders of the homeland. But wartime allows the federal government to grow at a frightful pace. We expect government to win the wars we engage, and we expect that our borders be guarded. But St. Croix feels the politicians of both parties in Washington overreach so that we see perpetually increasing spending on programs that have nothing to do with winning the war. There is too much power given to Washington.
The Association of American Physicians & Surgeons (www.AAPSonline.org), The Voice for Private Physicians Since 1943, representing physicians in their struggles against bureaucratic medicine, loss of medical privacy, and intrusion by the government into the personal and confidential relationship between patients and their physicians
