5. Government Monopoly Money vs. Personal Choice in Currency

For more than two hundred years, practically all of even the most free market advocates have assumed that money and banking were different from other types of goods and markets. From Adam Smith to Milton Friedman, the presumption has been competitive markets and free consumer choice are far better than government control and planning – except in the realm of money and financial intermediation.

Those who speak about being on the “right side of history” have, knowingly or not, adopted a central element in Karl Marx’s analysis of capitalism: the idea that the capitalist system follows a particular course of historical development that is open to scientific explanation and prediction, and which presumes to be placing humanity on a road that leads to a higher and better form of society – socialism.

4. Life with Gracie: There are millions and millions of Facebook groups; why this local one stood out
A full year after her son Nelson graduated from The Citadel, Dorie Griggs was still getting telephone calls and email from parents of incoming Knobs. Griggs had spent years blogging about her experiences as a Citadel mom and had become a trusted adviser about all things Citadel. What items should cadets bring with them? What’s the difference between men’s briefs and jockeys? How to empower their cadet to make their own decisions? Her experience coupled with her religions training, she felt uniquely qualified to be a “non-anxious” presence in their lives. And so when the questions kept coming, Griggs, a chaplain by trade, launched the first Facebook group for parents of freshmen entering The Citadel, a virtual community of about 500 parents, alumni and other relatives. The Citadel: Parents of the Class of 2016 and subsequent years became a safe place for newbies to get their questions answered. “I never expected it to last this long,” Griggs said the other day.Nor did she ever expect she’d be flying off to Chicago to participate in Mark Zuckerberg’s first Facebook Communities Summit, which opens today (June 22) in Chicago. “I was shocked,” she said.

Economic Ideas: Jean-Baptiste Say and the “Law of Markets”
Whatever economic freedom we enjoy in the world today is due, to a great extent, to the ideas and efforts of the classical liberals and economists of the first half of the nineteenth century. Inspired by the eighteenth-century writings of the French Physiocrats and Scottish Moral Philosophers (for example, David Hume and Adam Smith), they forcefully and insightfully demonstrated the errors and inefficiencies in Mercantilism (the eighteenth-century system of government planning and regulation). In place of Mercantilism, they advocated Adam Smith’s “system of natural liberty,” under which government would be limited, mostly, to the protection of life, liberty, and property. Free men pursuing their individual self-interests would peacefully exchange and, as if guided by an “invisible hand,” the cumulative result of their transactions would generate a greater “wealth of nations” than when governments consciously attempt to plan the economic activities of their citizens and subjects.

3. The Citadel’s board approves tuition and fees for 2017-18 academic year

The Citadel’s Board of Visitors approved tuition and fees for the 2017-18 academic year. The Citadel’s fee structure is different from most colleges and universities because the costs of room and board, as well as multiple sets of military uniforms, are built into one, overall rate.

6. Beaufort’s New Pat Conroy Literary Center Is Extending the Author’s Legacy

Libraries — whether public, school or personal — played a major role in the life of late South Carolina author Pat Conroy, and the same goes for the characters in his books...The Citadel library also played a significant role in both Conroy’s life and in his novel The Lords of Discipline. In a famous scene, one cadet passes information to another by securely hiding it in the one library book no one ever checks out: Oswald Spengler’s The Decline of the West. Haupt said he discovered on a recent tour of The Citadel library that the ancient Spengler is still in the stacks, and hasn’t been checked out in years. There was also a note hidden between pages 308 and 309, just as there was in Conroy’s novel.

8. For Tony Skole, coaching Citadel baseball not just a job, but an 'important responsibility'

Coaching Citadel baseball is a job for which Tony Skole will be well paid. The new Bulldogs' coach will get a five-year contract and a starting salary of $125,000 per year. But for Skole — one of a handful of Bulldogs to play for both of The Citadel's coaching legends, Chal Port and Fred Jordan — the position is more of a family trust than it is a job."The responsibility that this position encompasses is so important to me," Skole said Tuesday as he was introduced as just the Bulldogs' third coach since 1965. "I don't want to let Coach Port down, or Coach Jordan, but especially I don't want to let down the former players."
