The following interview with Dr. Edwin Vieira was conducted in early June of 2011 for the subscribers of The Casey Report – but after careful consideration, we decided that the content is so important; it needs to be shared with a wider audience. Feel free to pass it along.
Edwin Vieira, Jr., holds four degrees from Harvard: A.B. (Harvard College), A.M. and Ph.D. (Harvard Graduate School of Arts and Sciences), and J.D. (Harvard Law School).
Editor's note: This article was originally printed January 20, 2011, in the Sandpoint Reader, Sandpoint, Idaho.

"We shall be governed either by ourselves, under a Constitution, or else we shall be governed by the new kind of master invented in our day, the bureaucrat, and by the impenetrable web of rules that he fabricates and enforces. Let us stand together against the rule of bureaucracy, and for liberty and the Constitution."
-- Larry P. Arnn, President of Hillsdale College, "Imprimus," November 2011
The role of money is mostly portrayed as the instrument of greed, instead of its more prominent role as a daily instrument of freedom. When a worker spends his money, the purchase is a vote of support for another worker's product or service. The transaction is an exchange of value given freely and received with confidence and good faith.
Every day 1.5 million Idahoans vote with their dollar bills for the success or failure of products, services, churches, charities, investments and political causes. This is a remarkable social achievement and a loving way to build a community; it is coined freedom in action.
