Al Jazeera on the Koch Brothers

A fascinating report on the Koch brothers, though it is hard to understand how the brothers can be called "radical" libertarians, when they don't support or fund Ron Paul,yet they have been flirting with Herman Cain, Rick Perry and Chris Christie. The Kochs appear to maintain a very powerful political machine.

To understand the break between the Koch brothers and hardcore, truly radical libertarian, Murray Rothbard, see David Gordon's 3 part report.

  1. It is a fight between fiat money camp and hard money camp.
    Fiat money is Obama and his supporters (big banks).
    Hard money is oil. Oil is de-facto commodity money.
    Kochs are angry that this wimps in Wall Street can create "welth" out of nothing instead of doing real production and real voluntarily consumed services, so they are afraid of being overrun trying to fight back.

    I've found this reportage funny because all the critic was actually a bullshit and attacked points just fine. Thanks for good training in critical thinking.
