Two French civilians say a prayer as they lay flowers on a fallen American soldier near the city of Cerentan in 1944 France. This picture says a lot about the respect and appreciation the allies had for each other, something the axis lacked.

A Libertarian Case for Net Neutrality
As a libertarian you may be uneasy with the concept of net neutrality. Like me, you feel inexplicably drawn to this neutrality but feel guilty for it. You think to yourself, “I’m a free-market libertarian, by God! Regulation is wrong! Why is my instinct betraying me?” It’s because we don’t live in perfect world. We live in an economy that is far from free and is infested with government regulations and corporate manipulation. The internet service industry is a picturesque example of this.
Guns Vs Butter Quote
Here’s an interesting quote by Reichsmarschall Hermann Wilhelm Goring, a German politician, World War I veteran, and leading member of the Nazi political party. He was Hitler’s chosen successor and the architect behind the economy that fueled the German war machine.
This isn’t an endorsement of his ideology. I’m sharing this quote because I think that it really exemplifies the oratory abilities of the Nazi leadership. This short blurb completely justifies severe food shortages, while using the deficiencies to motivate the German masses even further.
“We have no butter, but I ask you: Would you rather have butter or guns? Shall we import lard or steel? Let me tell you. Guns make us powerful. Butter will only make us fat.”
– Hermann Goring
I imagine the original recipients of this quote arrived hungry, angry and questioning their own resolve. They left with restored resolve, no longer hungry, and ready to sacrifice even further… And all they were fed was a short line of text.
