For that, we were decried as a dangerous institutional proponent of 'neoconfederate' ideology. Why not just plain old Confederate ideology. Mises Institute has published the writing of Mises Academy instructor Stephan Kinsella in opposition to intellectual property. Kinsella believes that intellectual property law not only violates property rights, but undermines social well-being from a utilitarian perspective. The Mises Institute has been criticized by some libertarians for the incorporation of paleolibertarian and right-wing cultural views, including the positions taken by some of its leading figures on topics such as race, immigration, and the presidential campaign of Donald Trump.
He calls the charges erroneous and argues that they might stem from the support of some Institute scholars for immigration restrictions, its support of Confederate secession, or its uncompromising stand on libertarian issues and property rights.
In , Chip Berlet of the Southern Poverty Law Center SPLC described the Mises Institute as "a major center promoting libertarian political theory and the Austrian School of free market economics", also noting Rothbard's opposition to child labor laws and the anti-immigrant views of other Institute scholars. The Mises Institute makes available a large number of books, journal articles, and other writings online,  and archives various writings on its website.

Income to capital is not a taxable surplus, but a functional incentive: This entails securing new capital by saving, and borrowing and conserving old capital avoiding dissaving, and avoiding export of capital.
The Labor Policy of the Free Society
In health care, more effective cost containment can partially alleviate these pressures; as Jacob S. Nonetheless, in all the advanced societies, the rising cost of older programs has posed an obstacle to new ones and a test of political values. But some of the goods that we buy through taxes are inevitably becoming more expensive because of underlying demographic and economic trends. We can simply refuse to pay the costs and blind ourselves to the human consequences. Or, controlling costs as best we can, we can meet the challenge of paying the price of running a civilized society in our time.
And not just a civilized society -- a productive one, too. Conservative views of public spending typically portray it entirely as a drain on wealth. But public expenditures on education, science and technology, health, and many programs for children are critical forms of investment, with a demonstrable history of long-term payoffs. Government also contributes to our wealth in other ways. Overall government spending plays a countercyclical role, helping to prevent downturns from becoming depressions. Beyond these economic payoffs, government enables the public to purchase some goods unavailable in any market.
That's a kind of freedom, but a society with only that freedom wouldn't be free -- nor would it survive. A free people, acting together, must have some means of placing decisions outside the market to provide public goods and to avoid making all the conditions of life depend on individual economic capacities.

But we are not convinced that government always need compromise liberty, so when we call for it to intervene, we want the government's powers carefully circumscribed so that individuals enjoy greater liberty than they would have otherwise had. Unlike conservatives, we believe that the people can enlarge their freedom through the only power that they share in common, which is their government.
Taxes are the price we pay for that expanded vision of freedom.
