History of Liberty: The French Revolution, a Critical Analysis

Picture source: Flickr. History of Liberty: The French Revolution, a Critical Analysis   “To punish the oppressors of humanity is clemency, to forgive them is barbarity” – Maximilien Robespierre, Liberté, Egalité, Fraternité. The French Revolution The French Revolution is commonly seen as an example of rebellion against tyranny, and it’s mentioned in every history book as a victory for freedom. The revolt against the Ancien Régime and the effective step forward of the Third Estate into the political life,  reminds all of us of our history lectures during primary or secondary school, which promoted the marxist doctrine of the oppressor versus the oppressed; thus dividing the situation into only two factions. Thanks to this effective marketing, the French Revolution has been getting more credit than it truly deserves, while other revolutions that […]

Picture source: Flickr. You Clicked on this Article because Marine Le Pen is in the Thumbnail The French presidential election has been taking on speed in recent weeks: former Minister of the Economy Emmanuel Macron is running as an independent, Thatcher-admiring François Fillonwon the Republican primary, former president Nicolas Sarkozy left French politics after losing his primary, and incumbent president François Hollande announced he will not stand for re-election in 2017 as Prime Minister Manuel Valls resigned in order to prepare his own presidential bid. Meanwhile, France’s National Front is working hard to ensure that Marine Le Pen qualifies for the second round presidential vote in April 2017. Le Pen’s platform is that of hard-line protectionism: taxing imports and subsidizing the local economy, leaving the European Union, and […]

Android’s Open-Access Policy Makes Competition Work

Picture source: Patrick Tomasso Android’s Open-Access Policy Makes Competition Work   The first generation iPhone was released on June 29, 2007 and revolutionized the mobile industry for decades to come. In the third quarter alone, Apple, as a company that had never produced a firmware for a mobile, let alone a phone on its own[1], sold 270,000 phones and ended up bringing 6.1 million iPhones over the counter in just 6 quarters. Far more amazing than Apple’s sales is how technology evolves, especially to someone who has no background in this what so ever. In fact, Apple considers the first generation iPhone ‘obsolete’ on a worldwide scale since 2013. Think about this: an invention that had revolutionized the entire mobile industry 6 years before is already ‘out of date’. In 2007, this first-gen […]

Europe’s War on Tobacco

Picture source: Thong Vo Europe’s War on Tobacco   Governments worldwide crack down on the consumption of tobacco. We know that smoking is bad for one’s health, but governments manage to create a new set of health risks through their interventions. The War on Tobacco is amongst the most misguided doctrines in behavioral policy, and yet politicians continue to enforce it. The side effects on private industry as well as personal health have long been ignored by advocates for smoking-freedom. Nevertheless, these side effects exist. Smoking Bans Harm Small Businesses and Are Ineffective A 2008 study in Germany proved what associations representing the restaurant and bar industries had claimed for a long time. A comparison between federal German states which had implemented a smoking ban with states that had not, showed that the ban […]
