Back in the old Dr. Ron Paul days of '08 - '13+ you could be fairly familiar with all the think tanks / people / resources that existed locally in Australia.

Now, not so much. There's the libertarian movement with certain groups; but I am more interested in the fellow travellers, or single issue groups/movements, or perhaps folks that get part of it (e.g. anti-establishment... but aren't so good on economics, and thus fall into populist pitfalls etc.)

Who are they? Where are they?

I'd be interested to know. :)
I would be interested to know as well. Particularly any in Tassie.

My general post was probably more about those institutions/organisations that I don't know about (and are rock solid). However, to answer your question:

Chris Leithner is in Tasmania. Had great catch-ups in the past. Some of his material:

It would be good to meet him. I have read several of his books but thought he was in Qld.

He was. Brisbane based. There's a ton of recorded interviews he had on ABC Radio w/ Steve Austin., and we saved.



He moved there several years back. I've caught up a few times over the years. Been awhile now though.

His newsletter keeps things on point and fresh. No-one's perfect though, his take on Bitcoin might be a bit stuck 'in the old paradigm' imo (but this might have changed).

Public – private partnerships (PPP) are thus part and parcel of both fascism and socialism; they constitute a partial state ownership of the means of production. As well, they are emblematic of fascism, and government is the senior partner, and its regulations still determine the actions of these public – private partnerships.

PPPs are thus a hybrid between socialism and fascism. How do they stack up against their more economically “pure” brethren? Not too well. They have the flaws of both. The problem with both socialism and fascism, as compared to free enterprise and private property rights, is both moral and economic. As far as ethics is concerned, PPPs, socialism and fascism, are all based on coercion.

They are not based on the voluntary choices of property owners, none of the three. And, as economic efficiency is concerned, these three variants of totalitarianism do not pass muster either. Mises, in his classic critique of socialism, has demonstrated its difficulties, and the flaws in the regulatory (fascist) state are too legion, and too well known, to even deserve citation.
