Principles Matter!

The disastrous results of high school and college social science courses taught from a framework that ignores or denies the principles that govern the universe are obvious throughout our culture. The result has been an ever-increasing encroachment into individual rights to life, liberty, and property.

These universal principles are discoverable and understandable. Recognizing and applying them, even though imperfectly, was the driving force behind the founding of the United States. Rather than throwing them out because they were not perfectly applied by the Founders, returning to these principles and more faithfully applying them are the missing keys to finding a path forward for our future as we strive to form an ever more perfect union in America. 

Boundary Stone resources are designed to highlight these essential principles in history, economics, and public policy for students and anyone else looking for answers.

The Vanity of the Minimum Wage

The recent popularity for governments at various levels to increase the minimum wage is overwhelming evidence of the immense economic ignorance that plagues our country. Not only that, such policies actually oppress the poor among us and ought, on that basis alone, to motivate Christians to vocally oppose such measures….

The Decline of Civility

As the culture wars continue to rage, civility is on the decline. At root the battle for our culture pits those trying to save Western civilization against those seeking to replace it with a secularized vision of utopia. It should be noted that Western civilization...

Plundering Our Way to Prosperity?

We all face numerous obstacles in life. Many of these are natural. There are always limits to our time and understanding. We must overcome the problem of distance and our useful means are always limited. In fact, the very first principle of economics states that there...

Government: The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly

Our government is out of control. Could you explain why? Could you explain what the legitimate purpose for government is? This article by Dr. Paul Cleveland, originally written in 1997, explains the exact problem that we face, and lays out the case for returning to...

The Minimum Wage: An Island Tale

Consider three individuals who are living on an island. Imaginatively, let’s call them Gus, Carl, and Hillary. Now, through a lot of risky hard work climbing trees and picking fruit, Gus has accumulated quite a stash of coconuts. However, since Gus has been busy...

Who Can Be Trusted With Freedom of Choice?

Christianity has always asserted that people are sinners. This does not mean that people are as bad or evil as they could possibly be, but that every aspect of their being is tainted by sin. As such, human action is always flawed in this world. Unrighteousness and...

On Tithing and Taxes

Hillary Clinton recently proposed changing the way long-term capital gains are taxed. This proposal prompted me to take a look back to see how capital gains have been taxed over the past 25 years. In doing this I discovered that the tax treatment of long-term capital...

Rule Makers Gone Wild

Each year for the past twenty years Clyde Crews of the Competitive Enterprise Institute has updated his assessment of the federal regulatory government.[i] Over the course of that time span the various federal agencies have drafted over 81,000 final rules and...

Government Action and Oppressing the Poor

The writer of Proverbs warns us against the folly of keeping a common purse with immoral people.[1] This proverb can be applied to how we think about our government’s provision of various goods and services ranging from education to housing to healthcare. Indeed, it...

On Limited Government

Moral action requires choice. How can we say that one action is virtuous and another immoral, if the person acting has no choice in the matter? In an earlier post I argued along with Frederic Bastiat that liberty is the environment in which moral character is developed. Recognizing that this proposition must square with the fact that we live in a sinful world, I would like to further explore the purpose of government. Because of sin’s reality it is most certainly not government’s role to plan and control all of life since no one is fit for the task….
