I identify John Stuart Mill as one of those who noticed this issue. I analyze this problem along with two more issues related to this particular problem. The first one is censorship, that comes from the State and from the civil society. The second one is political correctness; I examine this phenomenon and illustrate the concrete case of American universities and the case of James Flynn. Finally, I make some considerations on defamation based on the celebrated professor Walter Block´s ideas.</p> David Marcos Copyright (c) https://misesjournal.org.br/misesjournal/article/view/1267 Fri, 20 Mar 2020 15:25:38 +0000 Faces of Austerity https://misesjournal.org.br/misesjournal/article/view/1279 <p>Book review of Austerity – When It Works and When It Doesn’t.</p> <p>ALBERTO, Alesina; FAVERO, Carlo; GIAVAZZI, Francesco.

The problem observed is that the state is the granting authority, regulatory body and partner in the concessionaire. The results indicate that the presence of the state prevents the efficiency of entrepreneurial management, the discovery of new knowledge and the stimulation of competition. It is due to the fact that the Brazilian Airport Infrastructure Company (INFRAERO) is present in the management of airports granted and not granted. INFRAERO was negatively impacted as it lost part of its revenue from surplus airports and maintained its responsibility for managing low-income or deficit airports. Ludwig von Mises’s Theory of Interventionism, written in the 1940s, remains contemporary and guides the process of organizational management.</p> Elaine Arantes, Otavio Ferrari Piaskowski Copyright (c) https://misesjournal.org.br/misesjournal/article/view/1255 Thu, 20 Feb 2020 19:05:25 +0000 The Facets of the Enlightenment Movement from a Libertarian Perspective: https://misesjournal.org.br/misesjournal/article/view/1250 <p>This paper pretends to explain the origins of the French Revolution, in particular in regards to its connection with the main proponents of the French Enlightenment. It argues that the Enlightenment movement was rather heterogeneous, shaped by many different thinkers with often incompatible views. The merits of Jean</p> <p>Jacques Rousseau in regards to conservation and education are described, while equivalently criticizing his rather collectivist ideas and his disputable views on women. It is argued that even if during the main period of the Enlightenment movement, liberal thinkers such as Montesquieu, Turgot, Lafayette and Condorcet had defined political theories based on individual freedom and competition, they were possibly “too far ahead of times” to significantly shape the French Revolution. Independently from the positive aspects of the Enlightenment movement, the actual French Revolution was often collectivist and nationalist and led to a violent phase – the ‘Reign of Terror’. Thus, this analysis allows us to understand the complexity and diversity of the Enlightenment movement and its relation to the actual French Revolution. Consequently, the revolution’s collectivist, nationalist and violent phase must be seen critically, also showing us that the implementation of democratic processes can bear risks, as the ‘majority rule’ can differ quite significantly to the concept of the ‘Rule of Law’.</p> Patrick Reimers Copyright (c) https://misesjournal.org.br/misesjournal/article/view/1250 Thu, 20 Feb 2020 00:00:00 +0000
