The Market Anarchist Blog Carnival

Welcome to the 8th edition of The Market Anarchist Blog Carnival, hosted by The Radical Libertarian.

Our first entry comes from Allan Wallace, who presents Life vs School - Life vs Job posted at - The BFU Journal - documenting the creation of a new type of college. It is a wake-up call to those who define their lives and base their life goals on their college major and job profession. I like this one because it hits a nerve with me. I don't define myself by my job either, and when people ask me "what do you do?" I tend to rattle off a list of non-work-related activities, which perplexes them.

Next we have Alex Ramos, who presents What you have a right to - and what you don't posted at The Freedom to Say 2 + 2 is 4. In this entry, Alex examines self-ownership and the individual rights that are derived from it. He also differentiates between positive vs. negative rights, like the difference between having a right to pursue healthcare, and having a right to healthcare as if it should just be given to you. It is a crucial distinction, and one that bears repeating when debating statists.

Barry Broom gives us Ron Paul: We will not be ruled. posted at Debt Prison. An excellent post describing Barry's first encounter with Ron Paul's message.

Wenchypoo presents An Investment in Life and the Family Orchard posted at Wisdom From Wenchypoo's Mental Wastebasket. Wenchypoo explains how to use the medical history of your ancestors to your family's benefit, and why it's a good idea to do so in a world of socialized medicine.

Phil B. examines Flag Burning posted at Phil for Humanity. And I agree! Flags make good tinder, and who doesn't love a good BBQ?

Tiffany Washko fights government meddling in the food market in The Death of the Raw Almonds - Take Action Now! posted at Natural Family Living Blog.

And finally, Francois Tremblay explains Why most people fail Morality 101. {part 1/2} posted at Check Your Premises. It's a great entry on morality, and I recommend reading both parts.
