……Thomas DiLorenzo: One virtue of the 19th century was that the public school brainwashing bureaucracy was not yet very well developed. It certainly is today, which is why America has become such a nation of statist sheep.

 

Daily Bell: Is the current system of Fiat Money Power on the way out? If so, what will take its place?

 

 

 

Thomas DiLorenzo: Yes. That’s what all the economic turmoil in Europe is about. I’d like to see a return to a gold standard. This will have to happen if we are to avoid worldwide economic collapse similar to the Great Depression.

 

Daily Bell: How does the Lincoln mythology play out today in light of all these circumstances?

 

Thomas DiLorenzo: It is still the ideological cornerstone of American statism, but we are making progress.

 

Daily Bell: Will the US revert to a freer, more self-sufficient model?

 

Thomas DiLorenzo: Only if peaceful secession is allowed to occur.

 

Daily Bell: Is the pre-Civil War US model a template for a more viable society in the future?

 

Thomas DiLorenzo: Minus slavery, of course. The Articles of Confederation and Perpetual Union were far superior to the Constitution that replaced them (and which omitted the world “perpetual”).

 

Daily Bell: Can we ever go back? Is history linear or cyclical?

 

Thomas DiLorenzo: I don’t believe in such determinism. We can correct mistakes. We DID deregulate oil and transportation in the 1980s; socialism DID collapse worldwide in the late ’80s/early ’90s and was replaced by more market-oriented regimes.

 

Daily Bell: Any other comments or predictions?

 

Thomas DiLorenzo: The Republican Party will continue to become more and more irrelevant and powerless; the Democratic Party establishment will finally strip off their masks and reveal themselves as the totalitarian socialists that they have always been; and the political future will belong to the young Ron Paulians…….

 

EXCERPT !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 

Daily Bell: Thanks for your time once again.
